JANICE DYKEN AND CAROL

The Van Dykens have been hosting our Thanksgiving dinner at the Mission in Baja for many years.  This year Carol will assist Janice and we give thanks for these women who do so much, and for this blessed occasion.

MARIA'S NEW HOME

Meanwhile in Oaxaca, our missionaries have faced some additional challenges this month, but we give thanks to our God for His promises. Please pray for the health and safety of all our missionaries.

Yadira and Esteban oversee the missionaries in Oaxaca and recently visited with Maria Villa Pablo. Maria lived in very primitive conditions with dirt floors for many years. Today she is grateful to have moved in to a new home where she hosted Yadira, Esteban and Pastor Martin & family, for breakfast and fellowship.

EMBROIDERY CLASSES

Teresa Rodriguez, who graduated from our Bible Institute, uses embroidery classes
as a tool to reach a number of different communities with the Gospel in Yucundivi, Oaxaca. Eugenia (Maria Villa Pablo’s mother) shares the Word of God in Mixteco.
We pray for these classes and outreaches as an effective means
for preaching the Gospel.

 
“We’ve a story to tell to the nations that shall turn their hearts to the right, a story of truth and mercy, a story of peace and light. For the darkness shall turn to dawning and the dawning to noon-day bright, and Christ’s great kingdom shall come to earth, the kingdom of love and light.”  H. Ernest Nichol, 1896

KAILA PHILLIPS

Kaila, from New Jersey, visited the Baja Mission in 1991 and 1992. She said “this was an awesome experience that touched my life forever. I now face chemo therapy. I am on my second round. The prognosis is not good.” Please pray for Kaila.
