I feel under a lot of pressure mostly about the lack of money.. I have so many hurting people here on my team and I am trying to keep this ministry up and going. about a third of our funds come from mission teams coming in but we have not had a team in three months and we have had others canceled for Oct. and Nov. I am praying to God for help.. We now have a little larger ministry and it takes about 8000 a month just to pay the bills we had about half the funds we needed last month.
I think most people would give up but we are a little crazy. If we are going to go out we are going to go out with a bang. We are putting everything we have on the line. We are going to move the church in Playa to a new place. It is going cost us but it is our best chance to reach the people of Playa. We are going forward in Chan Chen as well... We need help but I am not asking people to do any more than I am willing to do.. I am not going to sing "I surrender all" if I am not willing to do it. When I was young this was easier but the older I get I think, who is going to take care of my wife in old age. And God says HE IS....
Please invite your friends to join us...

We are moving to a new location in Playa Del Carmen. Nov. 7th we are going to be making this big step of faith. It is true that this is a weak economy but our GOD IS STRONG! Today as I preached the message it hit me God knows my needs. The older I get the harder it is becoming to put it all on the line for Christ... I think who's going to take care of me if I give it all to Christ and His work. Today God answered me he said I Will. Please pray for the people of Playa Del Carmen and those living in the Mayan villages where we work.

Please pray for Rodolfo.. He is the one who is heading our building project and the one who gave the land for the project. A few people in the village are jealous and they are attacking this young man. We know Rodolfo is not perfect but if God used only the perfect people this Chan Chen Project would have never started. Pray that these people would not hurt Rodolfo or his family and that they will not slow down the project. Pray also that Rodolfo would live life in a way that honors God is all that he does. When you try to do good there is always opposition.

We have a new unique and innovative way for raising funds for mission and ministry. Plan your next retreat or conference with Encanto Resorts in Playa Del Carmen and they will donate 5% to our mission work here in Mexico and 5% to your ministry or charity... This is a great deal!

Thank you to all of you who prayed for ladies event today. It was ajoy to see and hear so many women who longed to grow in their faith.
Cherylyn was a beautiful lady who came needing a special touch fromGod. She is a ministering leader in an English speaking church inCancun. Through a broken heart, she shared how there were powerstruggles in the church. They were trying to work through them, buttheir hearts were heavy. We prayed for the church and prayed for theleadership of the church.
Cherylyn represents one of about thirty women who came today to hear aword from God. God spoke through Liam, a Spanish-speaking friend fromthe church at Playa as she sang. Our team gave testimonies and weeven had an artistic team member paint to the “Resurrection Song.”The messages were well received as a each lady were challenged to liveout their walks with Jesus and lead others to relationship with Him.Each lady went home filled with delicious food and a gift bag filledwith goodies in addition to a fresh word from God.
Please continue to lift up this team as tomorrow will be worshipingwith two churches here in Mexico.

It has been an exciting time in the small Mayan village of Chan Chen. Yes, we still have a long way to go but now we are beginning to see real progress. This is what we hope to see by the fall of this year, 20 High School students enrolled in our training program. This program will take students in their last two years of High School and teach them conversational English and skills
needed to work in tourism. It is our hope that at least half of these student would want to continue on to college in Playa where we will continue to work with them through the ministries of our church in Playa. The long term dream is that many of theses college graduates would return to their villages as missionaries to help educate and evangelize the next generation . We need your prayers, we are still so far from the finish line it would be easy to give up. Pray that the funds would come in and that God would start working now in the hearts of these future missionaries.
