8 August 2013 Update!

Greetings from HOT and HUMID Mississippi!

Cousins having fun in Mississippi.  August 2013.
We are in Mississippi for a few days of vacation and we're enjoying our time of family, friends, fun, and food!  We wanted to update you on a few things:
  1. Summer 2013 was a great one!  We saw the Father do some amazing things through our family and through our Mexican brothers and sisters and through some great folks from the USA.  We are grateful for the prayer support you all have supplied us.  We saw new doors opened for the future, several new believers become a part of God's family, USA partners with a clearer understanding of missions, and some young folks who sense a call to missions as a career in the future.  God is so good to allow us to be a part of all of this.
    We were blessed to have some great friends to help with
    International World Changers 2013.
  2. We have SIX young adults coming to be a part of our team until December.  Hannah, the other Hannah, Jasmine, Katherine, Sarah, and Shelley will be arriving on August 20.  They will be with us until December.  We are thankful the Father continues to send us workers to help us.  Please pray for them as they adjust to the crazy life we live in Oaxaca.
  3. Community Transformation Training is coming to Oaxaca in early September for USA partners and IMB personnel, and other interested folks.  If you would like to come down to Oaxaca and be a part of this training, we would love to have you.  Email us and we'll get you the info you need.  Please pray that this training would better equip us to plant churches in southern Mexico.
  4. We have several USA churches coming to southern Mexico on Vision Trips in the next few months.  These churches are seeking the Father's plan for them as they engage unreached communities.  Pray for each of these fellowships to have a clear understanding of where the Father wants them to work.
  5. Haylee and Jackson return to school in a couple of weeks.  Pray for them.  Haylee is entering 11th grade and Jackson is attacking 9th grade.  Pray for them to have a great year!
Thank you so much for your prayers!  We definitely need them and they are so important to the work the Father is doing in southern Mexico.

Jeff, Liesa, Haylee, and Jackson
