Mario reports that last Friday Alexis was released from the hospital. Praise God, there was no amputation. Alexis went home to his aunt’s house in Camalu. His aunt lives in a much more sanitary place.
Thank you also for those who made generous donations.
DENNY AND ANDREA LOMBARD
She writes: “I want to thank all of you precious prayer warriors
that have been praying for me with this knee replacement surgery.
It has been a very painful surgery and having complications
has made it more difficult. But with our God there is nothing too difficult.
I appreciate your love and your faithfulness and your
continued prayers. There is a prolonged recovery time.
With heartfelt thanks and gratitude"

GENESIS AND GLEN
From Glen Almeraz, Pastor of the Zapata Church: “Thank you from the bottom of my heart for those who sent money for my medical treatment and for transportation costs to Ensenada and Tijuana.”
Glen’s daughter Genesis writes: “Glen is deeply grateful for your gifts.
I am now a resident of a hospital in Ensenada doing my internship for the medical profession. I am learning from patients not only about medicine but also about life.
I hope to be able to communicate regularly about my experiences.
You are an answer to my family’s prayers.”
BIBLE INSTITUTE STUDENTS IN ROUTE TO OAXACA AND CHIAPAS
(SORRY ALL ARE NOT IN THE PICTURE)
We received a glorious report from the staff and students of the Bible Institute.
" This year there were 15 students and 5 staff members that traveled, not only to Oaxaca, but also to Chiapas. They went to serve, teach, preach, and advance the kingdom of God in Mexico. The students arrived in Mexico City in the middle of the night,
and a church group welcomed them and prepared breakfast.
That morning they sang praises to the Lord and were sent off with prayer.
After a long trip, they arrived in Huatulco. They went to five small communities, where there was evangelism and discipleship. The heat was unbearable.
The staff and students ministered in a general hospital.
They brought a message of hope, shared the Gospel, and prayed for many.
Onto Chiapas; this state is known for persecution of Christians. The pastors received them with gratitude. We gave them encouragement, shared their burdens, distributed materials and provided them with Bibles.
At the end of our journey, tears rolled down their cheeks.
The staff and students served the Lord and were a great blessing.”
PEREAU'S HOME IN NORTH HOLLYWOOD
For many years, our FFHM office was in the back bedroom of our home while the garage was used as a warehouse in North Hollywood, CA. Olive and Larry Kieler and group from Camp Luther, Mission, B.C., stopped by for a dip in the Pereau’s swimming pool
and for spaghetti dinner. They shared their adventures and miracles along the way from Canada. The group went to Osborne Neighborhood Church
for a sleep over and then on to the Baja Mission.
After recently spending a week at the Baja Mission, the group from Camp Luther had dinner at Agustin’s in San Juan Capistrano, CA, hosted by anonymous donors.
His Ministry is dependent on volunteers like this work group.
Marlo was part of that group. He reminisced about times gone by. He has served at both Oaxaca and Baja and is now on his way to seminary.
Please pray for Marlo.
SAM PARSONS WITH HIS CHEMO NURSE, JADE
Sam writes: “I have no bad news, just good news. My chemo treatments are going O.K., although truthfully chemo is the pits. The nausea and fatigue are real but so is the presence of God. I have felt God near me like at no other time!”
