I can remember the words that Jesus said: “My food is to do the will of him who sent me…lift up our eyes and look at the fields, because they are white for the harvest.” Today, there are many things that distract us and we turn our eyes and look at different things, and not what Jesus wants us to see.
He wants us to see the fields of souls ready to hear and receive His Word. In that same part He tells us that some sow, some harvest, and the fruit is for eternal life and that is exactly what happened on our recent trip to Culiacán.
We harvested what Hugo and Lizette have sowed. We joined a group from Texas. The work was INTENSE for them and for us. Our team was focused 100% on the spiritual work – the sowing and harvesting for eternal life.
We put together a winter version of Vacation Bible School with the children of San Pedro. We began with 17 children and we finished with 30. Even though it was a time of classes, we had new children coming every day.
10 children received Jesus for the first time, which is the most important thing. Our prayer is that what was harvested gives fruit, and the lives and families of these little ones can do a COMPLETE turn around.
The children memorized the Word of God and did crafts related to the classes. We had a time for games, which is where the group from Texas helped a lot. I firmly believe God has great things planned for every one of these children!!!
In the evenings we covered three camps, El Guayabito, El Ranchito, and San Jose. Every one of the teachers prepared a good class, a good seed to be sown in the lives of these children. We so desire that they have different lives, that they be watersheds in their generation, different children, different youth, adults, and families, because with the help of God this and even more can be accomplished.
The work needs to be watered with a lot of prayer, fasting, and perseverance. His Word will never return empty.
It was a very good time - time to be able to expand the Kingdom of Jesus Christ. The voice of Jesus will still be heard. We plead with the Lord of the harvest to send more workers to His harvest. It is wonderful to be part of the team of Jesus Christ.
There are no words to describe the joy and happiness that was in our hearts to be able to be sent to the harvest, where we found children, women, youth, and families longing to hear the Word of Eternal Life.
Thank you so much to the donors who from their homes, their churches and their jobs are a part of this work. You all are those above the well sustaining the rope so that we can go down into the well where we find our people, speaking the same language and bringing them out of the darkness and bringing them into the Kingdom of Jesus Christ. THANK YOU!!!
We love you and are grateful for all that you do for our people and for our country.
