27 May 2012 Update!

Hola from southern Mexico!

Thank you to all who pray faithfully for us, support us through the Cooperative Program and the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering, and come to southern Mexico to work among these precious people.  We are so thankful for you 'holding the rope' and enabling us to be here in southern Mexico.

We have had a good week.  Haylee and Jackson are busy getting ready for the end of their school year.  Haylee finishes up 9th grade and Jackson will say good-bye to 7th grade on Friday, June 1.  They are so ready for a break from school and a good summer vacation.  Haylee and Jackson will be spending a month in Mississippi this summer with family and friends and they are excited about that.

Liesa and Jeff have enjoyed a 'calm' week before a busy summer arrives.  Jeff's mom arrives on June 6 for a couple of weeks of life with us.  We will have two summer missionaries here during the months of June and July.  There is also a great deal of research that must be done and Liesa and Jeff will be traveling quite a bit to find info on some of the areas of southern Mexico.  We have three churches from the USA coming down in the next few weeks on Vision Trips to seek God's place of service for their churches.  We have much work to do to prepare for these big events.

We were blessed this week when the Father sent us a wonderful young lady to work with us this summer.  We have been praying that God would call out some Mexican Christians who would be willing to teach us about ministry here and allow us to teach them also.  We are excited about what God is doing here through us and the other missionaries who are working here.  We are convinced that this part of the world must be reached by our Mexican brothers and sisters.  Our role is to help them to do what God has given them to do.

You can join us this week in praying for:
  1. The Right People, in the Right Places, doing the Right Things.  
  2. For more opportunities to build 'discipleship' relationships.
  3. For the villages of S.B.Y. and S.P.T. to have new churches soon.
  4. For protection as we travel around southern Mexico conducting research.
  5. For J and E who are coming to spend two months living in a remote village.
  6. For Z, our new national partner who wants to serve the Lord with us this summer.
  7. For God to guide our steps so that we are following Him every day.
Psalm 9:10 - And those who know your name put their trust in you, for you, O Lord, have not forsaken those who seek you.

Many blessings to you all!
Jeff, Liesa, Haylee, and Jackson
