July 27, 2017 VBS and Baptisms

July 27, 2017 - 7:47 pm - Posted by Brenda Matthews

Greetings from hot, muggy La Paz, Mexico!

In my last report, I let you know that we were holding a VBS.  That happened last week and I want to thank you for your prayers.

1-00000000000000000000 Baja collage assembly83There were only 19 kids (I taught those pictured), but the adolescents/youth really pitched in taking on responsibilities and are excited about serving in the church.  The theme of Galactic Starveyors was Discovering the God of the Universe.  We learned a lot about our galaxy and space as well as learning about its Creator.  The two girls in the top right prayed with me to accept Christ as Saviour, so I’d ask that you pray for Camila and Yoselín.  If you’d like to see more photos, hundreds can be found here: https://www.facebook.com/iglesiaelfarolapaz/ (you might need to scroll down and if you keep scrolling you’ll find photos from other events).

Remember the marriage conference back in February and the offer of a community church wedding?

1-00000000000000000000 Baja collage assembly84Well, it’s finally going to happen!  Bernardo and Ana Rita along with Reyna and Memo want to participate in the October 14th wedding.  We had our first planning meeting together and there was a lot of excitement.  Please pray for them to put into practice the Biblical principles and good teaching that they received to build strong marriages.  Thanks again, Doug and Ruth!

In my last letter, I neglected to mention that this Sunday we’ll be celebrating more baptisms.  Bernardo and Ana Rita will be baptized along with two youths, Cony and Xitlali, and possibly some others.  Please pray that each of them will faithfully follow and serve our Lord.

On another note, please pray for the country of Venezuela and especially for the believers.  Insecurity and food shortages are rampant and the tensions are high.  Pray that the difficulties will cause people to turn to God and that the believers remain strong in their faith and share their hope in the Lord.  Please pray for God to intervene and for His name to be glorified.

Thanks for praying!

Brenda
