4 Funerals...

& a wedding.

We've been involved with four funerals in the last 8 weeks, some very loose connections, but also a very dear friend and a friend's son. Funerals in Mexico happen within 24-hours of death, so they become a "drop everything and react" experience. We got 1:30 am phone calls on consecutive nights, and Tim was also out very late with the others. This past week we lost Dr. Pedro Carrillo, who was 82 years old, and had served the Lord faithfully his whole life. Those are the best times, even though we hurt with his family and miss him, we rejoice in his life well-lived and in the hope of his being with Christ. Being around death is an exercise in perspective: am I living my life so as to finish well? "Well done, good and faithful servant" are words we long to hear.

and joy...
We're also starting premarital counseling with a couple at church, Edgar & Andrea. They are young professionals who have been with us from the beginning of Pueblo de Esperanza. We baptized Edgar last year and it is a great joy to work with both of them. We're so thankful for God's work in them and their work for Him.

Help Wanted
More space...yes, pray with us that a bar would move out of the shopping center and we could move into the bigger space they occupy!
  1. 2 Years: In September we celebrated our 2nd anniversary as a church. There would be so much to give thanks for, but especially for the team we have to work with.
  2. 2 Salvations: Abelardo has been meeting with 2 men separately, and both have accepted Christ in the last 2 weeks.
  3. 2 Girls: Amanda has been fantastic. Among many things she's doing is a weekly meeting with 2 girls from church, Valeria and Daniela, to study the Bible together.
  1. 2 new disciples: pray for discipleship and growth in the two new believers (J & R).
  2. 2 families: great economic need. Actually it seems that we have more, but pray for 2 of the following: The Ángeles, the Luna, the Muñoz, the Morales.
  3. 2 months: of crazy football scheduling. Flag football season is going, which means coordinating and coaching 7 teams with about 40 players (including moms!). It's very rewarding but very demanding.
Thank you for your prayers!
Tim, Barbara-Lee, Drew, Gavin, Fiona
