PASTOR MIKE BAYER AND HIS WIFE JUDY

The Village Church of Laguna Woods, CA gave an extraordinarily generous offering of $10,000 for the general fund. We have been operating in the red for two months, not unusual for this time of year but certainly disconcerting. How we praise and thank our God for this faithful, generous congregation led by Pastor Mike Bayer.

BOYS SOCCER TEAM

While our teenage boy's house parents are temporarily away on maternity leave, the boys took advantage of having a substitute house father and some rules were broken. As a result, they have had to forfeit their position on the soccer team. Please pray for our young men, it’s hard to be a teenager. 

JAN AND CARL
 

The diagnosis is in on our precious sister in Christ, Jan Holter. She has an infection in her blood and a tumor on the right kidney. Pray for the success of the surgical procedure and a full recovery. Jan and Carl Holter hosted the Pereau’s on their first speaking engagement in 1973 and have arranged many itineraries in Illinois and Wisconsin. Carl serves on the FFHM board. 

MARIO AND OUR BIBLE INSTITUTE STUDENTS

Mario Cordoba and the Bible school students are ministering at the Oaxaca Mission and in remote areas. Pray for their protection, safety and a fruitful ministry.   

TED AND MARY

Ted and Mary Holmes, Yuba City, CA, have served His Ministry for many years. We can’t enumerate all the projects he has been involved with, including our sewer and system and reclamation project at the Baja Mission. Most recently Ted and crew remodeled our student’s house in Tijuana. Ted needs a resolution to a problem that could be very costly.   

CHUCK AND CHARLA
 

A precious friend of His Ministry, Bea Bink, Santa Barbara, CA will host Chuck and Charla Pereau this weekend. They are celebrating their 68th wedding anniversary. 

FROM LEFT TO RIGHT: DON SORENSEN, PASTOR LELAND LANTZ AND JIM JARRETT

Praise: Redding Christian Fellowship sent another work group to the Mission. Don Sorensen, Sheboygan, WI fell heir to a bus for transporting disabled children. Don drove it to Laguna Woods, CA and parked it in the parking lot of Lutheran Church of the Cross. Pastor Leland Lantz prayed over it and the group from Redding piled in and took it the rest of the way to the Mission in Baja.

CHILDREN READY FOR BIBLE CLASSES

An excerpt from a precious letter from Maria Villa Pablo expressing her heartfelt gratitude: 

“Thank you, thank you so much with all of my heart for having contributed to such a special vehicle like the 2009 Jeep Liberty that is now in Juxtlahuaca and all the towns around it, traveling over roads that are difficult because they have been eroded by the rain, without any problem. Brothers and sisters, I could never pay you back for your kindness and so much generosity on your part. However, I pray that our God and Father, pours blessing over you until it is overflowing. Because our God knows how to reward his own.”
