NIGHT IN BETHLEHEM

Our annual performance of Night in Bethlehem will be presented from
December 13th - 15th. Thousands will attend this presentation. We pray
that we will have good weather and many will come to a saving
knowledge of Jesus Christ through this real Christmas story.

Please pray for the anointing of God the Holy Spirit on this production.

OUR MEN AT RANCHO DE CRISTO

The men at Rancho de Cristo are hosting a Christmas party for children in poverty. The men have been busy all year making little wooden cars and other children will receive a stuffed animal. Tamales will be served to all, a Mexican tradition. We praise God for Hans and Nancy who are hosting this gala festivity in honor of the Lord Jesus Christ.

VIRGINIA - ELLIE LUGO'S SISTER

Please keep Virginia and Ellie Lugo’s family in your prayers. Viriginia was having a lot of shoulder pain and went for a PET scan. It is highly suspicious for active myeloma in the spine, ribs and sternum. This would be a huge disappointment as the bone marrow transplant is supposed to offer at least two years of remission.
She was originally diagnosed with cancer.

TWILA BELK

Twila and her daughter, Laney, accompanied Janelle and me on a
fast trip to the Baja and Oaxaca Missions two weeks ago. Seldom, if ever,
do things go perfectly. But this trip to the missions was almost perfect.

Twila and Laney, who speaks Spanish perfectly, interviewed each person
for the sequel. There were tears of joy and sorrow as the testimonies were shared. Maria Villa Pablo shared her account of suffering as a migrant field worker.
Yadira, a pastor’s daughter, was released by her father
to travel to remote places teaching literacy.

Unfortunately, the mission aviation pilot was not able to land the
small plane on the landing strip as it was fogged in.
Modesto was waiting for us. There were many other interviews.

Now we pray that the story can be told effectively by Twila.

BRIAN FORSSE WITH HIS FAMILY

Praise God, Brian's tumor has shrunk radically.
He is scheduled for surgery this week.

Please pray for his complete recovery.
