May 2008 Mexico Mission Update Letter

"Oh, give thanks to the Lord! Call upon His name!
Make known His deeds among the people!
Sing to Him, sing psalms unto Him,
talk of all His wondrous works!
Glory in His name.
Let the heart of them who seek the Lord rejoice.
Seek the Lord and His strength.
Seek His face forever. Remember His marvelous works,
His wonders and the judgments of His mouth!"
Psalm 105:1-5
I hope that Psalm is an encouragement to you today! If we're seeking the Lord, our hearts should be rejoicing!!!

So, if we're not rejoicing, does that mean we're not seeking? Dunno. It's something to consider!!!

Well, we missed April. I know that it was here, but we suddenly turned around, and it was May! Time flies! Here are a few highlights from April...

Doug and Rebecca have been doing some repair-work at the school. The school now has hot showers and toilets that flush...without running constantly!

A mission team from southern California came down for two weeks...

We still have a missionary student living with us...

Doug began coaching little league...

And he also helped a Christian sister to hear the word of God...for the first time in a long time!

Rebecca continues to help with women's Bible studies...

We helped organize a volleyball tournament...

Held an outreach in Palos Verdes...

Celebrated Dia de los Niños...

And spent a lot of time in prayer!!! As you can see it's been a very full month! The busier we become, though, the more we need to draw from our Source of strength. It's so easy to become so busy "serving" and "doing" that we forget the real reason behind it! We pray that you will be encouraged as you read and that you will continue to lift us up in prayer!

AND (drum roll, please) our web page is now up and running. It is still a work in progress, as we keep noticing things we need to adjust or change, but it's online and all the buttons work (as far as we know!). You can now visit our ministry web site at : [Webmaster's note: you are now visiting the FLOW international site. The old site is defunct!]
