Dear Pastors, Friends and Family,

I want to begin by thanking you for your prayers & support, which make possible the spread of the gospel to Mexico City. I never want to get used to being a Christian, nor accustomed to being saved. Neither do Mary & I ever want to take for granted your involvement in our ministry. As our furlough has come to an end, we want to thank the pastors & churches who have allowed us to present our ministy and give an update.

Then, we must drive the van to Texas, empty it to take it across the border into Mexico to get it nationalized (e.g. converted into a Mexican van). This process normally takes a week so we will then fly to Mexico City to find and sign for an apartment. We will then fly back to the border to pick up our van, drive it into the U.S. and load it up with our belongings and with tracts, John/Romans & Bibles to drive back to Mexico City. Soon after, we will begin looking for a building for our new church-plant. We are hoping to get a … Read More »
