Give thanks to God for Blanca’s birthday today (June 1). We surprised her last night with a party at JES church, and many other friends were invited and participated. The kids and I will take her out tonight for dinner and a movie.
Give thanks to God that my seminary class finished well, and only the final exam remains. We also had good performances in oral exams on Monday for Ruth and Reysel, and Ruth completed her thesis which looks great. Ruth is our sole graduate this year and will continue to work as a misionera in her home church in Temixco, Morelos.
Give thanks for safe travel and good visits with both Lee families in Tijuana and the Meyer family in Guadalajara. While in Tijuana I also took a couple vacation days in San Diego to sightsee and catch a breather. Pray for my trip and time with the Kuipers in El Paso.
Give thanks for good kids’ club turnout, but please pray for more volunteers. Our church is small and so the volunteer pool is small as well.
Give thanks that I could preach at the wedding of Suni and Isaac on May 20, and visit another church (Berea church, NPC in Ajusco) on May 21 as part of my project to visit one new church per month.
Give thanks for Daniel and Alexandra. Daniel finished his college semester but is now in summer classes at TEC, and Alexandra continues to study at home.
Please pray for the busyness to end and the to do list to get accomplished. I have not been able to work on home service preparations because of unexpected mission duties, on top of the usual end of semester duties, fiscal year end duties, and outstanding ministry activities. This semester was supposed to have been lighter for me, but has felt heavier than last semester. Please pray for God to bless our home service preparations and for us to be able to complete the remainder of our mission and ministry activities before we leave July 20.
Please pray for a vehicle for us to use on home service, and for our support to improve significantly before the end of the month.
