Winter 2023

Prayer and Praise 

  1. Ed has completely recovered from surgery and is back in the saddle again.  We are so grateful!

      2. For a young boy named Kevin who has been found to be with a learning deficiency that is affecting his whole world.  His extended family criticize him and even in school he is suffering rejection.  There are no programs in the village to address this.  His mother needs wisdom.  He had been a vibrant witness for the Lord and now even that fire for Jesus has abated.  

3.  The continued advancement of home groups which have really taken off so successfully.  Many who will not go to church on Sunday will come to these village homegroups mid-week.  It really has been a sweet and fruitful time!  

4.  The continued maturing of 3 young men, Lito, Victor and Tollan who are key for the future of the Texhuacan church and village outreach.  We have seen both growth and struggle in each of them who have been honest with Ed about wanting to grow and yet seeing their own shortcomings.  Pray we can encourage them in the Word to continue on in hope and victory. 

5. Thankfulness for Denise’s finishing 6 different Bible studies with women in the villages, pastors wives in the state of Puebla, as well as an international (via zoom) study on 2 Corinthians with Spanish speaking immigrants in Canada. 

Thank you so much,

Ed and Denise
