An update from Chris…

Hey everyone!

Thank you much for all of your prayers and e-mails and support! George, Irian and I got up this morning to head into La Barra and face what will come for us only to find Eva (one of the believers) walking up to us. She let us know that she had spoken with Jose (the second president, VP) and he told her that if we do enter the village again, not only will he for sure throw us in jail, He will through her and her children in jail also and then kick them out of the village for good. She is not ready right now for this. Her husband is in North Mexico visiting sick family and she is alone with her 11 year old boy, Jonathan, and 5 or 6 year old girl, Dyana. Pray for them, continue to pray for the believers and for Those who hate the gospel and hate God. WE WERE THERE AT ONE TIME! We hated God so much and were running from Him with all we were. ONLY by His grace, through faith, did He open our eyes and save us. Pray for Jose, pray for Pablo, pray for those against us they will see our God and drop and repent of their sins!

We are planning to meet with the believers today in Huatulco (village 40 minutes from a Barra) along with anyone else who would come to the service. We will try to speak to them about standing for their faith and persecution. We will go through some of Acts and encourage our brothers and sisters to realize HE is worth it all! Pray for this meeting as well as the hope to have small meetings th e town over from La Barra with anyone who can come each day afterwards. These believers need to be discipled and guided through the Bible. Pray for the church that is in Huatulco striving to bring the gospel into La Barra too, La Amistad de Huatulco. God closed the door for us to go in but He is working hard to bring His people. Inocentas’s husband, Endofonso, has made a proclamation of faith and was baptized a few weeks ago. Inocentas son Uriel and daughter Jessica were also baptized! OH what a MIGHTY GOD we serve! There is reports also that the husband of Briseda, a professing believer in La Barra, also made a proclamation of faith! Also, there is another man, Fidel, who has also made a proclamation of faith! I have not spoken with these MEN, but I hope to today! HIS CHURCH IS GROWING! To GOD be the Glory and He WILL get it!

Malachi 1:11 – “For from the rising of the sun even to its setting, My name will be great among the nations, and in every place incense is going to be offered to My name, and a grain offering that is pure; for My name will be great among the nations,” says the LORD of hosts.

IT WILL be great and it is happening and WILL all over the world! Thank you for your prayers and PLEASE CONTINUE!!!!! Pray for the next week of working with the believers and others who the Lord has given an interest to. Pray for Wisdom and knowledge for us as we teach and for us to give God Glory in all things!

Revelations 5:9 – And they sang a new song:
“You are worthy to take the scroll
and to open its seals,
because you were slain,
and with your blood you purchased men for God
from every tribe and language and people and nation.

Thank you again and please continue prayers!

For His Glory!
