Please PRAY for the education of the youth as the new school year has started. The school year follows the calendar year starting in February and ending in November. Praise God for the offerings that were received to provide the required school uniforms for many children living in the worst conditions.
Mark will be having hand surgery this month. Please PRAY for an operation without complications and for a quick and complete recovery.
Please PRAY for the protection of the lead pastor of the New Life Church Puerto Cabezas (Nicaragua) as there have been recent death threats targeting him and his family. Pastor Sam remains steadfast and focused on the church and serving Christ. Recently a nearby pastor, his daughter, and all of his grandchildren were murdered.
Please PRAY with us about the financial needs into the new year as the ministry continues to expand throughout Costa Rica, Nicaragua, and Honduras.
Please PRAY for the next missions trip to Puerto Cabezas, Nicaragua. A team from the Costa Rica church will be serving there the second week of January.
Thank you for praying for this trip. The New Life Church Puerto Cabezas officially planted a new church about 20 minutes away from their church in one of the remote communities. We had the privilege to be there to pray for the church and the new pastor with about 40 people in their first official church service. More details coming in the February newsletter. Praise God!
La Finca is the Costa Rica ministry base located in Los Guido. Please PRAY for God's protection as a court case against the property is slowly making its way through the Costa Rica system of justice. The next court date, which is supposed to be the final one before a judgement is made, is Wednesday, November 1. Please PRAY specifically on this date. Read more about La FInca here.
Once again, the hearing with the judge was canceled minutes before the scheduled time due to a technicality on the part of the court. We fear that the needed prayer cover in this case will diminish because of the constant delays. Please do not grow weary in prayer! The answer has already been given. We prayerfully wait for it. (Daniel 10:10-14)
Please PRAY for Jessica, a member of the New Life Church Los Guido, as it has been confirmed that she has cancer and it has been confirmed that she needs surgery. The surgery has been scheduled and canceled serval times.
Please PRAY about the need for a house to be built on the property where the Puerto Cabezas church is located where a family would be able to live and care for the church and property similar to what is at La Finca in Costa Rica.
Praise God that offerings have begun to come in to draw up plans and and begin to take steps to start the foundation on the house. We have faith that God will meet this need in the months ahead!
PRAY for safety and God's protection. The gospel is being shared and discipleship is taking place in dangerous areas known for serious violence.
