With the present 'stay at home' order in Costa Rica, please pray for the children that are now locked into abusive homes with no school and no church to escape to.
Donations are understandably down but praise God for the "special" donations that have been received to fund the feeding center and provide groceries for over 70 families living in "crisis". Please pray that the ministry will be able to provide more groceries as the need is extremely great.
The updated government restrictions were announced for Costa Rica. Churches must remain closed until at least June 21. Schools will stay closed until at least July 13. Driving restrictions are being eased a little at a time and most businesses are open with strict guidelines enforced. Thank God that the children's feeding center is open Monday-Saturday which is a blessing to lots of families. Over 70 bags of groceries have been delivered to families in great need. Thank you for praying for these families.
Mark and Meg are now stuck in Costa Rica unable to meet their tourist deadline date for leaving the country. The country has closed its borders until June 15.
Please click here to follow us on facebook. Photos are being posted of some of the folks that are graduating from one discipleship book to the next. Please pray for them by name - for their protection both physically and spiritually, and for the disciples that they are also teaching. Please do not grow weary in praying for La Finca. A court case has been in process for nearly ten years where another person is claiming ownership of La Finca. The case has recently been moved to a new court house with a new judge. The judge has called for one, and only one, hearing where each party will have the opportunity to present three witnesses and then he will announce his verdict. Please pray for the court hearing in June.
Pray for the advance of the gospel. Pray that it would penetrate the hearts of the adults as well as the youth. Pray that entire families will come to know Jesus Christ as Savior. Please pray for unsaved parents. It is obvious that the violence and abuse ends only when parents find Jesus.
Please pray for Pastor Sam, Pastor Iván, Pastor Ludy, and Mark as they pastor and lead churches in very difficult areas. Pray for their physical and spiritual protection. Pray for the protection of their flocks as the devil continues to be fierce and unwavering in his attacks.
