Important decisions with the national pastors, with a clear focus in obeying the Great Commision.
 
The Lord provided in that Sandra purchased and sent a number of flashlights for the Totonac pastors & lay workers who attended the Annual National Convention, held in San Sabastian, Veracruz. When they arrived and were given the flashlights, they praised the LORD, as there was no electricity around the place they were to stay for a week. The flashlights were a blessing from the Lord and He was glorifed.  Thanks for all you do in praying and supporting the ministry so that we are able to minister as God lays on our heart in even small areas as small as sending flashlights and batteries.

In seeking the best way to teach his children the Bible, he took the extra step and traveled a day's journey to Tasquillo where he attended classes at the Bible Institute, preparing to teach the Bible to children.  He then returned to direct VBS in his village where 400 children attended. Next they foresee having 1,500 children attend.

Hauled pews from First Baptist Church of Bulverde, Texas to Mecatlan, Veracruz. The deacons in Mecatlan cried with deep thanksgiving to God, as they accepted the gift in awe of the wonders of GOD. The pews were vintage, therefore solid wood, which will hold up better in the semi-tropics.
