October 2016 Prayer Concert

Naomi is doing fine at her new life space, although she misses the family so badly. She has already built a good community with her roommates and Korean students. She keeps herself so busy at school and her financial world…she is getting jobs for the first time. We do miss her as well.

Please pray with us for the followings.

1.- Praise God for a wonderful Coffee Break workshop for the group of 91 pastors and church leaders in Merida. It was the very first workshop with this big group of participants, and everyone of them showed great passion for our method of Bible studies.

2.- Our home church, All Nations CRC (Sunland), has decided and settled with the need of new lead pastor. Pastor Tae Kim is now the senior pastor, young and energetic. We pray that he will further be a godly man with good sense of God’s calling and direction for the church.

3.- Oct. 3rd (Monday), Abe will receive his mentoring group (4 preachers) who will bring pictures submitted by their church members for our first photo contest “My Church”. May we can collect our thankfulness as we learn how much our churches understand and put in the small screen their church. Pray, in addition, for Emmanuel Velazquez who recently got a job to support his family need. It will however limit his pastoral schedule during weekdays.

4.- Coffee Break small groups continue at Cristo Arca de Salvacion Church (Armando Ponce). We barely started it couple weeks ago, but it sounds well received and the participants are already showing much interest in its method. May they take the Word into daily life application.

5.- A 12-hour Young Adult Night is on Oct 7-8 at Dios Altisimo church. It will be from 8pm to 8 am next morning. Three speaker will take turn for 4 hours each throughout the night teaching and sharing stories on Ten Commandments. Our main theme, "Consecrated Youth," will knock our youth hearts and lives. May they hear it and respond to it with an huge yes to God. Pray for pastors Robelio, Keith and Abe who will speak to them. Pray also for Saul our event organizer.

6.- Abe will preach at Emanuel Church (Mario Pascual). The church is celebrating the month of reformation, so Abe is given a specific them to preach about, “Grace Alone”. May God give His Word to us, so we will deliver it right at the heart of the church.

7.- Oct. 9th, Elaine and number of pastor’s wives will meet for the first time. They’ve been saying about this gathering for a long time, and it finally being reality. May they enjoy each other’s company and come up with future activities for their personal growth.

8.- Pray for meetings of field council and COMUNI in Merida. May all the decisions shine God’s wisdom in us as His servants. So His church will dance with joy and thanks.

9.- A Coffee Break Conference will be held at El Buen Pastor Church (Edgar De la Rosa) on Oct 19-20 in Villahermosa. The church had delegated its leaders last month event in Merida. They have returned home with clarified idea about the CB objectives. We hope and pray that this conference will be a big plus for church growth and outreach.

10.- Please pray for elder Lorenzo Vazquez (El Buen Pastor church) who is going through medical delicacy. He is waiting analysis results on his stomach and other tests. May the good Lord show His mercy to this fine believer and exemplary church leader. We’ve enjoyed so much of his never weakening love and leadership for his church.

11.- Oct 21-22, Nueva Jerusalen Church, Villahermosa, will host our #20 AID Seminar. It’s the second time hosting, by the way, at this 130-year-old church. We are so grateful to God for His love of this church. Pray specially for elder Serafin who continues to dream with spiritual renewal of the church. Pray that the church will see another work of God to His people through this seminar.

12.- Oct 25, RPC pastors (book club) will study on the same-sex marriage at their monthly gathering. There is not enough Spanish literatures on this ever challenging topic of our time. May we all hear what God has to say to His church and now through us, His servants.

13.- Oct. 28 is our 21st anniversary. God has been so deeply working in our vow and daily activities. We give unceasing thanks to our God, the Maker and Witness of our union. He has blessed us and trained us to serve between us and to others. We pray that He will continue to hold us together and further grow in covenantal love and commitment to each other.

14.- Elaine continues her Tuesday morning Coffee Break studies. Now it draw more missionary wives who come to hear and unpack their heart stories. It is being a real blessing to a participant. She used to be very reluctant and passive to other gatherings until up to know the CB. Now she gives all of her Yeses as she felt fit in this kind of ministries and develop her skills.

15.- Oct 30, Abe will lead the Communion service at Manantial de Vida Church (Rafa Ramirez). It’s been a huge blessing for us as we had led this small congregation to an ever closer life to Jesus. May our God continue to pour His grace upon the church and each of its families.

Thanks for your friendly prayer and faithful givings.
