21 April 2014 Update!

Hola Everbody!

Here's some highlights of the past couple of weeks!

Last Tuesday Jeff was able to visit with our friend, Pastor Franco Lopez.  He has been serving the Lord for a long time and planted several churches in southern Mexico. They were able to pray together before Jeff left.  We received word that God called Pastor Franco home last Friday.  We're thankful for the opportunity Jeff had to visit with him one last time on this side of eternity.  Please pray for his family who are grieving the loss of a great servant of God.

Sandi Bridges came back to Oaxaca last week as a part of a Vision Team from her church.  We were blessed to serve with Sandi in Peru and on a couple of occasions in Oaxaca.  Now, she's all grown-up and is a leader of missions mobilization in her church.  We had a great visit to a village in southern Mexico with a small church in need of some encouragement and training.  This village has few believers and there are villages surrounding them with no churches.  We are praying for Sandi and her church as they decide whether or not to come back and take on this task.

Meeting some great people is a benefit of being a missionary.  Would you add Pastor Hector to your prayer list?  In this photo, Jeff and Hector are sucking down some coconut milk.  Please pray for Hector and his wife, Maria, as they lead a small church in southern Mexico.  Pray that they would be encouraged even during difficult times.  Their village is struggling with unemployment and poverty.  Pray that they will be able to minister to the people in their village.


Your prayers are so important to the work the Father is doing in southern Mexico.  During the month of May will you join us in praying for the people of southern Mexico?  Our cool colleagues, Jeff and Cam Dunson, have put together a website for all of you praying people.  Here is the link:


Please pray for our 2014 Summer Student Missionaries:
--From Mississippi College: Lauren.
--From Ole Miss: Natasha, Bryce, and Michelle.
--From Mississippi State: Courtney.
--From North Greenville University: Katie.
--From Liberty University: Davinity.
--From the University of Arizona: Jennifer.
--From Loyola New Orleans: Bailey.
--From Oxford High School: Drew.
--From Jackson Academy: William.
--From Freeman High School (Virginia): Rachel.

And pray for Ronnie and Diane Conner (Oxford, MS) who'll be coming down to help us keep these students well-fed and having a great time.


You all are blessing!  Thank you for HOLDING THE ROPE!
Jeff, Liesa, Haylee, and Jackson.

7 April 2014 Update!

Greetings to all of you out there!

Thank you to all who pray for us.  We are so grateful for the partnership we have with so many back home in the USA and all over the world.  Your prayers are very, very important to what the Father is doing in and through us.  We will never be able to express our gratitude to you all.

We want to pass along a few more prayer requests:

1. Jeff will be traveling with a Vision Team from a Florida next week to investigate opportunities among a people group along the Pacific coast of Oaxaca.  Please pray for open doors for this group and a clear understanding of the Father's plan.

2. Pray for our Spring 2014 Hands On team.  Heather, Holly, Nathan, and John David have about six weeks left with us.  Please pray their final days here will give them opportunities to make an eternal impact.

3. Summer 2014 is quicky approaching and we have a Dream Team of students coming to Oaxaca.  Most of these students have experience with us and are coming back for another opportunity to minister in this great place.  Please pray for Natasha, Jennifer, Davinity, Bailey, Michelle, Courtney, Rachel, Lauren, Bryce, Drew, and William.  We expect some great things from this group!

4. Please continue to pray for more laborers in southern Mexico.  We would love to see more Mexican believers join the work.  We have opportunities for families and singles from USA churches to come and join the work here.  Please pray to the Lord of the Harvest to send more workers.

5. Would you pray for more interpreters for our USA partners?  We need help in this area as we have more and more USA teams coming.  Our USA partners are trying to learn Spanish but we still need some help with interpreters.  This is an urgent need.

Thank you so much for your prayer support and your financial support through the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering and the Cooperative Program!

Jeff, Liesa, Haylee, and Jackson Holeman
