OUTREACH TO REHAB CENTERS
Inspired by conferences for women, leaders, and youth;
one of our staff members, Pablo, at the Oaxaca Mission,
had a vision of a conference for people in rehab centers.
That dream was realized this past weekend as we celebrated
the first Adulam Conference, (named after the cave
where those who were in distress or in debt
or discontented gathered around David) - 1 Samuel 22.
Please pray for the men and women from various rehab centers in Oaxaca who were ministered to during this special weekend.
Praise God! Another Planned Parenthood center was
closed in costa Mesa, Ca. Bill Zersen writes: “Today I saw an
"AVAILABLE" sign on an abortion clinic of Planned Parenthood.
Asking the people inside the next-door church, they said that yes,
indeed the Planned Parenthood clinic had moved out and closed up completely! That is an unbelievably good Praise report as the church
and everyone there had been praying for the clinic to close for a long time. Just like the clinic in the movie "UNPLANNED" which closed up,
this is another example of prayers making a major impact!”
It is not too late to see the movie, in select theaters. It’s a must see.
Update on baby Samuel*: Holding eyes open, some brief squeals, latching on mom, sucking, got a little milk.We’re waiting to hear soon that Samuel really cries, swallows, and becomes active. We believe in miracles.
Please pray Jesus heals little Samuel’s brain.
*Samuel is our precious missionary friends, Greg and Angela's, grandson.
YADIRA AND ESTEBAN
Please pray for the health of the Oaxaca staff and their family members.
Many people are experiencing serious illnesses. Pictured is Esteban
and Yadira who are the coordinators of the mountain missionaries.
They ask for prayer for Yadira's mother who fell and broke her arm
and prayer for Esteban's mother, who seems to be suffering from brain damage. Additionally, Modesto is experiencing pain in his 'good' eye,
and Enrique, our minister to the prisons, recently had prostate surgery.
HOUSE PARENTS IN OAXACA
Please help us to pray for a housemother for the little girls
at the Oaxaca Mission, and a substitute houseparent.
(These need to be fluent Spanish speakers, Mexican nationals preferred).
We are so thankful for the house parents who are spread thin
to cover the empty positions right now. It is a struggle.
PRISON MINISTRY IN OAXACA
One of Edgar and Lety’s professors in Bible College, Jimmy Coleman,
gave a seminar on prison ministry. It was well attended.
CHARLA AND MICHELLE PARRAGA
It was an unexpected surprise and delight to have Michelle
drop into our San Clemente office. Michelle, the executive assistant,
served 10 ½ years ago at FFHM. While serving here she traveled
to Oaxaca and Chiapas on an adventure that was life changing.
She is now serving as a social worker in Mendocino County.
We continue to praise God for the miraculous healing of Elaine from cancer.
“Let the little children come unto me.” We are in awe of the opportunity
given us by the Lord. Our daycare center in San Quintin
has now over 125 children. These under privileged children
are shown love, care and the Gospel is presented.
