God Can & Does Use Meetings!
Meetings aren’t always fun, but God can and does work through them. This last week fellow MTW missionary, Larry Trotter and I met with the presbytery for northwestern Mexico (Presbiterio Fronterizo Noroccidental). The meetings were held in Ensenada, Mexico. The Lord gave me the added bonus of being able to visit our friends and to stay with Jesus and Yudy Petrikowski.
The presbytery is filled with a great group of pastors and leaders. They are enjoyable bunch to be with. They gave Larry the opportunity to teach three sessions on Christ-centered preaching.
What a wonderful opportunity!
It lifted my spirit to see the interest the men and a few women displayed as Larry spoke on such an important topic.
Our prayer is that the grace of God will so fill this region of Mexico that individuals, families, communities and even cities will be transformed by the gospel.
New Church Plant Beginning in La Paz!
We rejoice in other important advances as God is opening up for us new opportunities in Baja. Victor and Fanny Gonzalez will be moving to La Paz, Baja California in May to begin a new church planting project there. This will be the first Presbyterian church in this city. La Paz is the capital of Southern Baja California. It is a key city.
Pray for Victor and Fanny as they move from the Monterrey area to La Paz. It’s a big undertaking, and they will need much prayer support.
Looking for More Church Planters
One more exciting bit of news is that we decided on the dates for the first church planting assessment center that we will have for this presbytery. It will held in Tijuana in October of this year!
Hallelujah! That’s a huge answer to prayer. Now pray that the Lord will raise up the right church planting candidates as we prepare for the assessment center.
Prayer & Praise
Dawn and I are so grateful for your prayers. God hears! We see him answering in big ways, despite our limitations. He is bringing healing to our family, even as we walk through this valley that we’ve been passing through.
Sometimes I wonder what God is doing, but then I look back and I marvel at all he has done. Join us in praising him! He is worthy of our worship and adoration!
In His Grip, Dave
