WE ARE IN NEED
A principal that was shared with me many years ago:
“God’s work done God’s way will never lack God’s supply.” Hudson Taylor
Our finances are at an all-time low. In other words, we are in the red.
When there is a lack, there are three questions to be asked:
- Are you in God’s will? We are caring for the orphaned, the widow, the hungry, and the prisoner.
- Do you already have the provision? We have made appropriate cut backs and used all of our resources
- Is there sin among you? Laura Rodriguez reported, “Our church service in Oaxaca was four hours long because the staff had a time of restoration, confession, and forgiveness. There was healing of hurts and unity. It was powerful.” We continue to pray “forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us.”
BIBLE INSTITUTE STUDENTS
Every year our Bible Institute students make a missionary trip to the mainland of Mexico. Throughout the year they raise funds by hosting a “Kicking Chicken dinner” at the Mission in Baja. Our visiting groups are always very generous and this year is no exception. The team leaves on July 10 to visit Juxtlahuaca, Tlacolula, Zacatal (Mixes) and Chiapas. Some are very remote areas and reach the unreached of Mexico. The group sleeps on the floors of churches, under primitive shelters. Pray for their safety, protection, and provision.
We have launched our new FFHM website! Kristi Garcia has already signed up four new children’s sponsorships. Check it out: www.ffhm.org
A VEHICLE FOR MARIA
When Mario and the group of Bible Institute students go to Oaxaca, they will deliver this four wheel vehicle, 2009 Jeep, to Maria Villa Pablo working in the mountains. If you should hear shouts of praise, it’s Maria from Juxtlahuaca, Oaxaca.
PROPERTY IN MEXICO
Foundation for His Ministry collaborates with our Mexican corporation Cristo Por Su Mundo (Christ for His World), also a non-profit corporation. So all properties are secure. With the passing of our dear brother in Christ Juan Carrillo, we will have to find a replacement. Pray for God’s choice.
NORBERTO AND HERLINDA
Herlinda has been part of our mission family for 30 years. She came as a little girl with her parents to the Baja mission where they served for many years. After attending Bible College, Herlinda married Norberto and they returned to serve together in many areas including house parents for 13 years.
The cement roof of their small home has caved in and in serious need of repair. The estimated cost is $5000. We have willing hands for the construction, please pray with us in meeting the financial need.
A team from Redding Christian Fellowship is leaving this week for a 10 day outreach in Kenya. Please pray for their safety, health and their opportunity to share God’s word.
Our teen boys have formed a soccer team. Amazingly they are in the semi-finals. These young boys are praying together, playing together and proclaiming Jesus. Jesus is their "all in all." Would you pray they'll be winners.
The Pereau's great grandson Riker will be one in September. Baby Riker has gone through eight surgeries. There is a hope and a prayer that vision can be restored to one eye (nothing is impossible for God). Please pray for this precious little fellow and his family, who are having to go through so many tests.
FRIDAY NIGHT DINNER
Please don't forget to make a reservation by noon Wednesday July 5th for the FFHM dinner July 7. It is at 6 pm and is at Lutheran Church of the Cross on El Toro Road. Sam Parsons will be ministering.
PRAISE THE LORD!
The funds have been provided for the warehouse door from a dear brother and sister from Canada! Of course, the door had to be replaced immediately so designated funds were used. They have been replaced by these precious friends.
