Last December, Said and Sarai Mendez received the results of a cat scan done on their daughter Glenda that showed she had a severely damaged left kidney and that the right kidney also had some damage. The doctors scheduled her for surgery this last Monday when they planned to remove the right kidney. But many were praying and after taking Glenda in they discovered that they didn’t need to remove either kidney. They only removed some membranes from one of the kidneys.
We are so grateful to have witnessed this healing miracle from God!
JILL ADAMS AND TIM SMITH
Jill has served for over 11 years with FFHM – first in various roles
at the Oaxaca Mission and then most recently as the Baja Mission Administrator. During those years she also adopted two children from Oaxaca. Many who knew Jill were praying that God would send a husband who would be a partner in ministry and also a father to her children.
Then last year God sent Tim, a kind, handsome and godly man
who desired to serve at the Baja Mission. Jill and Tim are now engaged
and will be married next month in a small ceremony. We thank God for
His faithfulness and ask that He would bless this marriage.
