May God bless you once again. In the last report I told you that we were getting ready to depart to Nicaragua, we have not yet arrived to our destination. Right now we are in the border of Honduras and Nicaragua. We had a few problems when we tried to cross the border and because of this I ask you to pray for us. The situation in Nicaragua is difficult, they don't allow Mexican nationals to enter because recently there have been issues with the drug cartels. So now they stop you, interview you a lot. They have asked the pastor from Nicaragua to present a letter in the immigration department in where he specifically requests a permit for us so that we would be allowed to enter. Please pray for us, I know God's plan is perfect and His purpose is clear and if he has sent us to be in that place then He will open the doors and everything will work out. In the meanwhile we are helping a church from pastor Luis Parada here in the border town. On Tuesday I shared the Word in a church and it was a great blessing and yesterday my companion Mauricio preached and it was another great blessing. Let us pray, I believe that the Lord has us in this place with a special purpose. Receive the greetings from your brethren in Guasaule, Honduras in the border with Nicaragua.
It has already been a month and a half of the intensive Bible courses here in Las Milpas, Sinaloa and we give all glory to our loving God because year by year He shows us his faithfulness, help, and His constant backup. I am very thankful to Him because He takes care of every detail. I think we have the perfect number of students because they have all been brought here by the Lord. Until now, it has been a course full of seeking the presence of our Lord, even though there has been lots of homework, assignments and tasks that must be met, we always make that time to spend those beautiful moments with our beloved Lord.
We have already finished our first three classes and we are continuing with the next three. God has allowed us to have been taking complete advantage of everything. God has been helping us to not be conformed, but to take the most out of this. There is still two more months of lots of blessings with the students hoping that what they learn will help, not only as theological knowledge, but also as knowledge that will help them be of blessing to their pastors and churches.
We will conclude with a trip to the state of Nuevo Leon, (30 hours away) to a congress that will be a blessing and motivation to continue living as the Lord calls to and to know and live our true identity in Christ.
The youth group has begun to work to fulfill some monetary expenses that will be necessary to cover during the four days of trip and our stay there.
We continue collaborating with the youth ministry ¨Torches of the Gospel¨ with whom in February 25th celebrated an event of spiritual warfare and outreach in Playa Colorada, Angostura where people were healed from soul and body. The cloud of His glory covered us and the Lord began to deliver lives and save souls. A youth leader which is a soccer coach took his players to the service, the teenagers ended in a circle all crying because the presence of God was so great among them. We give all glory to our God!!!
We ask for the continued prayer for the youth ministry ¨Torches of the Gospel¨ so that we may continue going to the towns and communities to bring more light with more strength in honor and glory to God our Savior in that same manner we ask for prayer in favor of the youth group at the Bible institute so that we may strive to not only flourish but give fruit, and to be able to reach and live those promises of which we have studied in the Bible also, to be able to fulfill the purpose for which the lord has brought us to this world for.
“May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, and the Love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all.” (2 Corinthians 13:14)
