Traveling to present our ministry Vision to Plant, Grow, and Develop Hispanic ministries has been an honor, hard work, and very rewarding as we get to do ministry as a family. April & May have by far been one of our busiest and most blessed months of support-raising! We drove a little over 3500 hundred miles starting out with the South Central Hispanic District’s Missions Tour, here in Texas. The tour was very encouraging as we met missionaries, pastors, and church members who are passionate about the lost and missions. On the last night of the tour, we drove through the night to Louisiana where we met up with old friends who have become our ministry partners. Praise God! That Sunday we had the privilege to minister in both services at Bethel Pentecostal Fellowship, the church where Fabian got saved. Bethel's warm and loving reception left us amazed and full of love, thank you! After just a few days of being back in the DFW area (un-pack, wash clothes, re-pack!) we were on the road again to South Texas (Eagle Pass), just across the border from Mexico. We visited family and had the privilege and honor of preaching the Easter Sunday message at Fabian's parents church. We had a delicious Easter breakfast after the 7 am service, where they served traditional Mexican Menudo. Delicioso!!
God is leading Hispanic ministers to rural America.
To top it off, we hit the road yet again to the Kentucky Ministry Network District Council where we presented our vision to many pastors. Many of this pastors are excited and ready to get a Hispanic ministry started in their congregations. On the picture to the right you will see Pastor Victor, a Hispanic man who recently left his full time paid position as a senior pastor in New York to follow the call of God to Kentucky. He has since partnered with a local Anglo pastor and together they are reaching their Hispanic community with the gospel of Jesus Christ. Matthew 9:37 "He said to his disciples, The harvest is great, but the workers are few." Brothers and Sisters, as the Lord is leading us to Kentucky and rural America He is also leading others for His harvest. But the workers are few, please pray with us for workers! As you partner with us, together we will be bringing God-inspired tools and resources to help equip and inspire the church for such a time as this. Thank you for your partnership!
“And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.” Rev 12:11
As an act of obedience and faith at the beginning of April we officially gave away our business to a trusted friend who is a local bi-vocational pastor here in Texas. He and his wife have a heart for children and will continue the vision of our old company "Roofing for Children". They are a dynamic couple in ministry and business and an answer to our prayers. We no longer have any ties to our business and are working full time to raise our support.
While in Kentucky we were able to be with my mom for her complete shoulder replacement. (She did great, the Lord is so good!) Also we are happy to announce that we are half way through the pregnancy with Baby#3! He or she will be arriving before we know it!
What an awesome time we have had meeting with old and new friends and share our ministry vision. Thank your prayers and support!
Could you please pray for us?
-That we would reach full support quickly!
-For a happy, healthy family
-For salvations and ministry calls as we share
vision at churches and in homes
-For God to send bilingual ministers into the harvest fields of Kentucky and rural America to start new Hispanic ministries.
We will continue to pray that God would prosper your endeavors, your health and for you to keep your eyes on Him, the God who is able.
Blessings to you and your families!
