A Time of Refreshment

Greetings from California!Missions Conf

Thank you so much for all your prayers over these past few weeks since we left Houston to stop over in California on our way to Southern Mexico!
A couple of weeks ago we had the privilege of attending the Calvary Chapel Missions Conference in Murrieta, CA. What a blessed time we had seeing so many long time friends that are serving in Mexico and various parts of the world! We very much enjoyed all the great speakers at the conference. We gleaned much encouragement from those who have been on the mission field and seeing old friends encouraged us as well.
During our visit here in California we’ve had an awesome time of fellowship with close friends in the Chino Hills area and the San Bernardino Mountains. We were blessed to stay a few days at the Calvary Chapel Conference Center in Twin Peaks, CA where Joe used to work and had sweet fellowship with former co-workers and friends. We also had a very special time taking part in a “Missions Sunday” at Calvary Chapel Saving Grace in Yorba Linda, California. Thank you Pastor Trent and Pastor Mike Thiemann along with your wonderful brides and so many others that helped to put on such a wonderful event!

GREAT TIMES WITH SPECIAL FRIENDS AT THE MISSIONS CONFERENCE

OUR HEALTH
We have all been hit by the flu and are now recovering from it. Thank you for your continued prayers that the Lord would strengthen us during this busy time. We were able to get Lupita to the dentist in Rosarito and alleviate some of the pain. She will be going back for another appointment in a few days.

OUR SOON DEPARTURE
Our missions agency requires that we have a certain amount of financial support pledged each month before we are allowed to leave for the mission field and move to Mexico. And although we are close, we haven’t reached that minimum amount of support yet. So at this time our most pressing need is some new ministry partners that are committing to financially support us monthly as their missionaries. If you are planning on supporting us monthly and you haven’t contacted us yet, please let us know! And thank you so much.
We would ask you to seek the Lord to see if He is calling you to partner with us as we take this great step of faith.
We are looking for multiple individuals that can give $20 – $25 a month.
Give a one time financial gift to go towards our travel expenses, and to get some basic furniture, etc. when we arrive down there since we will be flying and not be able to take many things
Mexico para Cristo!
Joe, Lupita, Candice and Cristy
