Greetings from Guatemala! We began the month of June at a Prayer Retreat with a few other IMB missionary families. It was a great time of fellowship and refreshing for us all. Soon afterward we hosted a vision team from LifePark Church in Mount Pleasant, SC. We spent our time together visiting in each of the villages that we are currently targeting with the hopes of them catching a vision to help us reach the lost in those areas. We had a great week together and as a result we have entered into a partnership with them. They will be sending their first team down to work with us in November and they have three teams scheduled already for 2016. We look forward to seeing how the Lord is going to work through us all in the months ahead. We took some time off to celebrate Father's Day and then ended the month attending a training conference that was held in our work area by some fellow IMB colleagues. We were learning about working with and partnering with our U.S. Southern Baptist churches. It was a great time of fellowship and growing together as a mission family.
We continued with our regular Bible studies during the month of June and have a full schedule of study times lined up for July. We begin the month with our regular Wednesday study today in the village of Tunuco Arriba.
If you would like to pray for our Bible study times on a weekly basis here is a look at our typical schedule:
Sunday- pray for Bible study in Nearar
Wednesday- pray for Bible study in Tunuco Arriba
Thursday- pray for Bible study in Muyurco
Saturday- pray for Bible study in Lagunetas
On Tuesdays David generally tries to make visits both in the areas that we are currently targeting and in new areas also. Pray for him as he is out encouraging and trying to get open doors into new places.
On Monday and Friday you can pray for Chanco, Churischan, and Tarshaja. These are villages that we are targeting but currently have no on-going Bible studies lined up.
Your prayers would be greatly appreciated for us as we travel and teach and for the hearts of the people that we share with on a regular basis.
We will end the month by hosting a team from First Baptist Church, Mount Pleasant, SC. They will be working with us in the village of Chanco. Begin praying now that God would do a great work through us all that week.
The work here is slow but we are continuing to do our part to plant seeds and share the Gospel. We know that in God's perfect timing a great harvest will take place here. Would you join us in praying for the people of Eastern Guatemala? Your prayers could be the difference in someones life here being changed for eternity.
