The family of Christ is growing!

Isn't it wonderful to know that one day there will be two young Mexican men with us in heaven because of YOUR prayers and support of our ministry here in Yucatan!

One man is named Jose and he has been involved with the Mormon church for several years. He had been searching for something more, when Jeff and Bob met up with him this past month. After clearly explaining God's plan of salvation to Jose, bowed his head and accepted God's priceless gift.

The other young man's name is Jesus. Jeff, Tori and her friend, Allison, were going door-to-door one Saturday this month, simply inviting people to come to church. Josue answered the door and began chatting with Jeff and the girls...from there, one thing led to another and God used the 3 of them as a witness in the life of Jesus. (Yes, that really IS his name!)

Continue to pray for our family and also the Bob Yeater family as we continue to plan for the new work in Caucel. Our desire is to see many lives changed and to see a solid ministry established for the families of Caucel.

Thank you for your prayers and support. We are excited that one day you
too will meet Jose and Josue.

Hi Everyone! Wow, 2010 is finally here...and I'm only now just getting to our February! Oh well, better "late" than never, right!

The last time that we posted was in November and so, the following next few posts will be a general overview of the past several months. Happy reading and enjoy following what God has been doing in our lives here in Yucatan.

New Year...New Beginings

So many times at the start of a new year, we try so hard to maximize the fact that we get to start from fresh once more and are often times eager to shake last year's "dust"off of our feet.

Well, this year is definitely a "fresh start" for our family and
our ministry.

On January 31st, we officially completed our last ministering service in the work of Iglesia Bautista Peninsular. Upon our arrival to Merida in 2002, by team ministry, we have since seen a church established and have trained nationals to carry on what we have started. Since they have taken ownership and responsibility for the ministry, it was quite clear that we had accomplished our job! Although it was sad to see such a long and dear chapter of our lives close, we are eagerly looking forward to the ministry opportunities that God has brought into our lives.

With that in mind, we are planning and praying with the Bob Yeater family, to once more establish a new work; however, this time in the city of Caucel. Currently, there is no religious group of any kind there in the city, but that wont be for long! Our desire is to be the first work available to those in Caucel and to make a major impact in their lives for Christ. Please be in prayer for us-particularly this year, as we need to return for furlough, raise additional support for the new work and also plan and establish the foundation of "Project First Impact".
