Summer has ended and most people are already prepared to return to work and to their studies. Somehow, it will not be like that for us at our home with Joel and Elis. They have now finished their studies, and hopefully the right doors will open for their future. Pray for those opportunities of employment or further training. We give thanks as a family for the Lord’s provision and trust in His keeping care.
During September and October we are launching a series in La Parroquia on the 1st letter of John; pray for a precious time, for the church to grow and grasp the challenges present
ed by the apostle. Pray for the pastoral team at La Parroquia, for unity in purpose, for wisdom and clear leadership.
We give thanks for a blessed time for the summer camp here in Valencia. We chose the name “Más Como Jesús” (To be more like Jesus) for our church summer camp this year because we believe it is important for our children to know that in Christ they have the perfect example to follow. The children learned how they can follow Jesus’ example to overcome temptation, to forgive when they have been wronged and to look out for those in need. Thank you for your prayer support and trust that many lives have been changed.
One of the families benefiting from the food distribution needs our prayers. The husband is in prison, and she is looking after three small children. She is a firm believer in the Lord; pray for peace in her heart in the middle of this storm. Pray for the Lord’s mercies to be extended to them as a family. Today, 1 Sept, another beneficiary from the food programme came to church bringing along a friend and the Lord spoke to her friend directly; pray for a deep work of grace in her heart. Towards the end of October, DV, we shall distribute the food for the 2nd phase (2019-2020). Pray for all the logistics and for the Lord’s blessing. Pray also for all the volunteers who serve in Asociación Ekklesia Solidaria and for all the financial support needed.
Continue to pray for a clear opportunity to regularly visit the Internment Centre for Foreigners. Pray for wisdom as we prepare a strategy to reach out to these needy people.
Please continue to pray for our friend and brother in Christ, Salvador.
Thanks for being there.
