PASTOR SHIRA

BIG BROTHER ANGEL GABRIEL WITH BABY ALEX FABIAN

Thank you for praying for our Oaxaca missionaries Eugenia and Modesto as they walked through a high risk pregnancy. This week they received the news that the baby needed to come now even though it was a month early. We are thanking God that Alex Fabian was the size of a full term baby and there were no complications.

ELISABETH AND GODFREY

Did you know that Godfrey and Elisabeth Dawkins, missionaries in Kenya, Africa have received designated support through Foundation for His Ministry since 1968 or 1969? The Dawkins’ and their missionaries minister in all public schools in Kenya. Their annual reports are awesome. They sent an urgent prayer request: “Abel and Grace, who work for us, three and a half year old son, little Emmanuel, disappeared April 29th, presumably kidnapped.” Please pray for the victims of these crimes to be set free from oppression, abuse and exploitation. Pray for the Lord to heal them physically, emotionally and spiritually.  (Isaiah 61:2) 

 

MORDECAI

Sandy and Jean Bergeron requested prayer for their grandson Mordecai. He is the sixth child from the right in the family photo. This is the saga of a long heartbreaking tale, but at last Mordecai has been diagnosed with Autism. They will benefit from therapy. The Bergeron’s have been friends of His Ministry for many years and have made numerous trips to the Mission. I often stay with them when in British Columbia.

LITTLE LOST PUP
 
Tom Taylor, 84, wept uncontrollably as he read the heart wrenching story of The Little Lost Pup. Tom has ordered 25 copies, which he will distribute through his prison ministry in Lancaster, OH.

OUR TEACHERS 

A praise report from the Disabled Children’s Learning Center: Alan Carlson had a fall and sustained a serious concussion. He is back teaching with Dirk, Mary and our other amazingly capable teachers.

MISSIONARY'S KID NEEDS SUPPORT

Jorge and Gina Gamboa served at the Baja Mission as architect, house parents and supervisors. Then they responded to the call to service at our Student’s Home in Tijuana. Their sons went with them. Isai writes, “I am very thankful for the privilege and blessing God has given us as a family. I am in the last year at the University, studying International Affairs. I have been given the opportunity of going to the embassy of Mexico in the Czech Republic from August 1 to December 1.” Any contribution to cover this young man of promise’s expenses would be appreciated and tax deductible.

SHIRLEY PARKER

One of our faithful children’s sponsors, Shirley Parker underwent surgery for a cancerous tumor behind her eye. She is going through radiation and would appreciate your prayers.
