The bunnies grow large in Rabbit Creek, Alaska. The team is building a lot of excitement in a middle class neighborhood in Playa for tomorrow's block party. Pray for this event tomorrow night at 6:30pm our time. We are going to be serving tamales and playing games with the kids. We are promoting this as an event to meet your neighbors in the new middle class neighbor. We hope to have many of our church people there informally talking about our church and inviting them to visit. Pray Pray pray!
Please pray for Jose and all the worker over at our house site.
We have a lot going on this week. Thanks for praying.

I guess it's not that much different than working men up north. Toby Keith has a new song that goes like this, “Yeah, the big boss man he likes to crack that whip. I ain’t nothing but a number on his time card slip. I give him forty hours and a piece of my soul and he puts me at the bottom of his totem pole. I don’t even think he knows my name. My baby cuts hair at the beauty boutique just blowing and going till she’s dead on her feet. They walk right in and they set right down. She gives them what they want and then she spins them around. I don’t even think they know her name. All week long I'm a real nobody but I just punched out and it’s paycheck Friday. The weekend’s here. Good God almighty I'm going to get drunk and be somebody. We’re just average people in an everyday bar driving from work in our ordinary car. But I like to come here with the regular Joes, drink all you want and be the star of the show.”
Pray for these men who are building our house... They need hope...
The two lead guys are Fred and Dino. I know it sounds like the Flintstones.

Our prayer needs this week:
I am still looking for land to build a small hotel, mission training and outreach center. Land cost in this part of the world are out of sight for the most part but this week I have a lead on a land that might work. Pray for God's leadership in this matter. Pray that we will have the support we need to make this vision happen.
Continue to pray for the workers building our house.
Pray that we will find God's answer to our need for a great communicator in our Spanish speaking service. Using video might be the answer.
Pray for the new believers in the Paamul church

Sooo the million dollar question is what do you do to impact this area for and see a real movement of God?
I could give you a long list of things we have tried that have produce some fruit but never gained the momentum needed to impact our city. Maybe it has been a lack of faith, or the wrong timing I don't know.... but one biblical principal I have learned and am already relearning is found in John 15:5 He who abide in Me and I in him, bears much fruit; without Me you can do nothing.
We need your prayers as we go forward. I have a dream that we will see a movement of God in this part of Mexico. Pray that we will always seek to know God and that we will abide in HIM.
Update on the mission house
Please keep praying for the workers who are building our home. I am practicing my Spanish sermon on them everyday. Maybe that is the key paid guys to listen.

We had a great night of worship and fun at small group tonight. Our small group was not that small tonight we had 19 adults and about 10 kids. We had a great time of worship and study. We are planing to do our first 101 membership class this Sunday please pray for this class. I am going to be teaching this class in Spanish. The people keep saying they love my sermons in Spanish. It hard for me not because the people don't understand my Spanish but there is just so much more I would like to say but I just don't have the words.
