11 February 2013 Update!

Dear friends,
Feb 11, 2013  Petal, Mississippi

Thank you for your prayers.  You never know when they are needed.  On Sunday, Feb 10 a tornado roared through Petal, Mississippi and decided to visit the neighborhood where my mom lives.  The Father protected her from certain destruction.  To the right is a photo of her back yard from this morning.  A huge thank-you to Danny Forrest and the crew from First Baptist Richton, MS for helping her to get some trees cut today.

Last week was a busy week.  A Vision team from Urbancrest Baptist Church in Lebanon, OH visited southern Mexico for the purpose of seeking an unreached people group to explore.  
Yes!  The road and the river share the same spot.
I gotta say this was incredibly fun!
We traveled to some interesting  places over the span of four days.  Every community we entered was a blessing.  In every community there was a 'Person of Peace' waiting for us.  Your prayers are opening doors in southern Mexico for the Gospel to move forward.

Here are some more photos and prayer requests from last week:

Pray for this family of believers who are living for Christ
in a very difficult place.

Pray for Nicole.  Pray for a church to be established in her village
so that she will hear about a Father who loves her and has big
plans for her life.

Pray for teams of  Southern Baptists just like this one
who will answer the call of taking the Gospel to last
remaining unreached peoples of the world.

Your prayers are powerful.  James 5:16 reminds us that the prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.  Please don't stop praying for the people of southern Mexico.  Your prayers are making a difference here every day.

Jeff, Liesa, Haylee, and Jackson
