Dear Friends in Christ,
“Jesus saith unto them, My meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish his work. … Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest.” John 4:34-35
Church: The “Precious Seed” Baptist Church in Anáhuac celebrated its eighth anniversary. We had a special dinner, with 91 in attendance, 5 people saved, and 8 baptized! We had a great time of food and fellowship, and a testimony time that lasted well over an hour! Many of the testimonies were of gratefulness to the Lord for bringing a church into town that preaches and practices the Bible, and for their family’s lives that have been changed. Praise the Lord!!
Please pray for Rigo and Ofelia, and their 4 kids, for Jesús, Susana and Rosa – adults who were saved at the anniversary celebration.
We have had 20 saved through our church efforts in the last couple of months. AMEN!
Teens: We took 11 teens to camp, with more than 200 teens in attendance. Most of our teens surrendered to do whatever the Lord would have them do, and to get involved winning souls.
Two young men surrendered to serve the Lord full-time. Please pray for them to keep their priorities straight, and to go to Bible institute as soon as possible. We also had three saved; one new girl, and two who thought they were already saved. AMEN! Since camp, the teens have won 12 other teens to the Lord! Pray for all the teens and that their excitement will continue!!
We have been praying for over a year for 17 year old Perla, who had been saved but had gotten into rock music and the world. She has been coming around little by little, and went to camp with the youth group. She surrendered to do the Lord’s will at camp. Upon returning home, she was baptized on our anniversary Sunday and brought her mother and an aunt to the services. AMEN!
Please pray for Alejandro who is 15, and says he is saved but won’t submit to the Lord for baptism.
Also, please pray for César, who used to be faithful and fell away from the Lord. He came to church for the first time in months, and needs to get right with the Lord.
Pastor: We are still asking God to give us the man that He wants in Anáhuac as pastor. While at camp, I had the opportunity to talk to some pastors who have Bible institute graduates working in their churches, and there are three good possibilities. I have been in contact with them, as well as with a couple who is completing their last year of institute this next spring and they are also praying for the Lord’s direction.
Praise: Great camp, safety to and from, and for decisions – salvations, and for the difference we’re seeing in our teens; Wonderful anniversary celebration;
People saved in services, as well as on visitation; People who have been baptized
Prayer: Teens to serve the Lord; Pastor for the church; Saved to grow in the Lord; Alejandro; Cesar
In His Service,
