November-December 2017 Prayer Letter
Dear Family and Friends,
[God] has saved us and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works… [and Christ] has now abolished death and brought life and immortality to light through the gospel. 2 Tim. 1:9-10
As we celebrate the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, it has been encouraging to see the Lutheran church here in Cuenca use this time as an opportunity to proclaim anew the message of the Gospel. During the month of October, the Paz de Dios congregation had special church services focused on the message of the Reformation. The services were well organized and well attended. Most evenings at least 150 people attended including a large number of new people. Pray with us that the Word they have heard will grow and produce fruit.
As a family, we continue to enjoy the visit of Justo’s cousin, Beverly. She plans to be with us until the end of Nov. She has been a help in the home but also in the ministry outside the home. We have been very thankful for good health the past month. The children continue to thrive and have been remembering their Spanish again. Merry Christmas!
Love in Christ,
- Praise God for the many people who have attended the Reformation services.
- Pray for perseverance and good attitudes for the Aletheia Bible school students.
- Many of you faithfully support us each month, for which we are so thankful. This year AFLC World Missions as a whole has experienced a sharp decline in giving. Please be in prayer about this situation.
