Sutherland Springs: This a time to mourn for the soul of our nation. Let us pray for Sutherland Springs and all the families affected by this event. Our hearts are heavy, but God is on His throne and we WILL be victorious in spite of the evil in the hearts of so many.
“A time to weep and a time to laugh,
A time to mourn and a time to dance.” Ecclesiastes 3:4
US BOARD AND LEADERSHIP TEAM
Thank you for praying for our annual board meeting. It was held at our beautiful Oaxaca Mission, a place where everyone should visit. We had the opportunity to go to the prison and other historical places.
The youth group at the Oaxaca Mission is experiencing a move of God the Holy Spirit with the leadership of Pastor Edgar Rivera. Pastor Edgar ministered in the remote regions of Oaxaca for years. Five teenagers were baptized Sunday afternoon.
In preparation for the board meeting, the work group from Divine Shepherd Lutheran Church, Milwaukee, Wisconsin spent days laboring. They worked from early morning to late at night and were tremendous representatives of servanthood.
MAYA AND KEITH
The monthly Friday night prayer group was tremendously blessed by the ministry of Keith and Maya Durkin who work with the street children in Tijuana. Thank you all for praying for the Durkins.
ALTERNATIVE CHRISTMAS ORNAMENT
JACK AND LOIS
We thank God for Jack and Lois Schofield who are back with us again this year. They are busy sending out cards with beautiful ornaments to those who are participating in giving to our Alternative Christmas.
If you would like to participate and give a gift towards Alternative Christmas click here. You can also order free paper ornaments to send to your loved ones.
Although Doug Williams, our C.P.A. has yet to finalize our annual audit, we believe FFHM is approximately $58,000 in the red. This is the second year we have had a deficit. The fact that it is nearly impossible to transport donated goods across the border into Mexico is the reason for this deficit.
We know that God’s work done God’s way will not lack supply.
Andrea Pereau Lombard went through surgery on Wednesday to put in a pacemaker. Please pray for a quick recovery and total healing.
MARCIA AND PASTOR LELAND LANTZ
Please join us in prayer for Pastor Leland Lantz and wife Marcia, who will be traveling to Uganda, Africa to visit and minister to the world’s largest refugee camp. They are dear friends of His Ministry. They will be bringing support to three different missionaries located in Moyo, Mbale, and Kampala.
