1 August 2012

Dear friends,

Thank you for all who pray for us regularly.  You are such a blessing to us.

Time really flies when your having interesting experiences.  While not all of our time here in Mexico has been fun we are amazed that it is August already!  Jeff and Liesa are excited that August brings American football.  The kids are gearing up for a return to classes in a couple of weeks.  It is amazing how time passes so quickly.  In just a few weeks we will mark 5 years as a missionary family.  Wow.

Thank you for your prayers over the past couple of weeks.  The Vision Trip with the team from Virginia went really well.  We were able to visit two people groups and the Father blessed us with open doors among one of them.  Pray for NBC from Virginia as they determine the Lord's plan for their future mission involvement.

A Vision Team from SBC in Tennessee arrives next week.  Pray for the Father to give clear direction to this team.  Pray for them as they make a commitment to training/preparation for their mission task in a cross cultural assignment.  Pray for the village they will be visiting to have a 'person of peace' to welcome them.

Liesa, Jackson, Haylee, and Jeff are currently traveling to a meeting of our Mexico mission personnel.  Pray for safe travel and a spirit of unity during the meetings.  Pray that the Father will continue to guide our steps.  Pray for those leading our meetings to be led by the Holy Spirit.

Also, we said 'see ya later' to our summer missionaries this week.  J, E, and Z did a remarkable job in the village of SBY.  Thank you so much for praying for them.  Your prayers definitely made a difference as they were able to build strong relationships and started a Bible study in their village.  Pray that 2BC in Missouri will continue to send workers into this harvest field.

We are blessed to know you all are praying for us and the work here.  Thank you for your support through prayer and your financial support through the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering and the Cooperative Program.

Liesa, Jeff, Haylee, and Jackson Holeman
