January, February & March 2024

Dear Friends in Christ, 
Go to now, ye that say, To day or to morrow we will go into such a city, and continue there a year, and buy and sell, and get gain: Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away.   James 4:13-14

Mission ConferenceThe first of February I preached in a mission’s conference at the Iglesia Bautista Ebenezer in Dodge City Kansas.  We had a great time, and it was a special blessing to present Faith Promise Missions to them for the first time, though they already supported some missionaries.  I knew some of the folks there which were originally from Camargo, where we started the last church.  They were a special encouragement to me!
    On my way to the conference, I went on to Colorado to visit my brother and sister and their families. I reported to the Calvary Baptist church in Sterling, CO where I was saved in 1976.  It was also good to reconnect with the church and the first person I led to the Lord!

RecoveryI had a hernia surgery the end of December, and it is pretty much healed, and I’m back to lifting 100%!  Praise the Lord!

Hands to the WorkI’m working to get the “Hands to the Work” ministry better organized. We’re setting up the warehouse and shop at the First Baptist Church in Del City, OK, where I can store the supplies and work on my equipment.  Several of the men of the church help me.
    I continue getting more materials, but I’m still not keeping up with the requests from Mexican churches for pews, doors, windows and etc.  Please inform me of pews, tables, chairs, a source for doors and windows, etc.
We plan to take up to 4 pianos at a time to Bro Eduardo, the pastor of the first church we started, in Anáhuac, Chihuahua, who will recondition and tune them, and I’ll pick them up and take them on to the churches.    
    Please pray for the support that I need to pick up and deliver the materials.  Also pray for the organization and planning of trips, as well as picking up materials, etc.!
    I need men, retired couples, families, students, etc. to come on a one week to 16 day trip, to help me drive, and be a blessing to Mexican churches. Please email me if you can help me, or would allow God to challenge you on a short-term mission trip to Mexico!
