July 2016 Prayer and Praise

The heat is here!  And with warnings to prepare for possible hurricanes in Florida – and coastal tropical cities in Central and South America.  It is always a challenging weather time of  year.

  1. While in Mexico last month, I was thrilled to spend time with a national pastor and wife whom I have known and loved for many years. Their church is partially built in a very poor section of Cancun where he has been establishing it for 14 years.  And it was 14 years ago that they had a baby who did not live more than a few days.  Their great desire is to be blessed with a child.  Would you pray for Neri and Leydy Gonzalez?  You would love them with their joyful and dedicated service to the Lord in a hard place.

  2. There are 64 national leaders and pastors in Cancun who receive our materials and NONE of them live in the tourist section!  But MANY of their church people and friends work in the lavish hotels and properties. The contrast is huge.  Pray for these servants of God who work outside the beauty of Cancun where life is hard.

  3. We are seeing a marked increase in pastors and leaders registering on our LOGOI website.  When describing his ministry, one new member of our LOGOI family wrote: “evangelista en las calles” (street evangelist).  Can’t you just see him?  In my mind I already picture a fearless man unafraid of what people might say and do.  And we are helping him know what to say and do!  Thank the Lord for these national missionaries proclaiming God’s Word!

  4. And thank you, Lord, for partners in ministry…like YOU! What a joy to serve the Lord together.
