THE CORDOBA FAMILY - GRACIELA IN THE BRIGHT RED SWEATER (BACK) AND MARIO IN THE BURGUNDY SHIRT AND BLACK JACKET (FRONT)
November 1988: Mario and his three little girls, one severely handicapped, made the long bus ride from Pachuco Hidalgo, Mexico, east of Mexico City.
The destination was a then remote place in the Baja peninsula. Mario was not a believer but he was predestined to be the administrator
of both the missions in Baja and Oaxaca. He now pastors the Mission Church. Mario, Graciela and family are now serving the Lord.
The family chose to travel to El Barril, 12 hours south of the Baja Mission. There were about 100 people in this fishing community. Gifts were given to the children but the best gift of all was the Gospel and many received Him.
RICHARD "DICKIE" KEITH
The Pereaus’ took in Charla’s nephew at age 14. Dick had a heart breaking saga and was headed for juvenile hall. Dick writes, “Thank you Charla and Uncle Chuck; I can’t tell you how blessed I was when you took me into your family, you saved my life. Both of your influences molded my life, you were my parents and I love you.”
Dick, a retired police officer, has had many medical problems, surgeries and hospital stays in the last two years. He went from 175 lbs down to 138 lbs. Dick and his wife Margaret attend a little country church in Florida. Please pray.
Change can be very difficult. Laura Rodriguez,
Oaxaca Mission administrator, writes, “As we finish up this year and enter 2019, we have some children and staff transitioning out of the home.
Please pray for blessings in all these changes.”
