Struska Family – Rosarito, Mexico

Praise God:
 -For the teams that have overcome the difficulties of the Coronavirus quarantine and overcame any fears of traveling and doing ministry here in Mexico in 2020. 

Payer Requests:
1. Spring is one of our busiest times of year. Please pray for our spring teams as they plan their upcoming trips while dealing with the obstacles of any Coronavirus or quarantine issues. Pray that the Lord will move the hearts of pastors and church leaders to allow those who are called and those who are willing, to be able to come and serve. 

2. We continue to seek the Lord’s wisdom in knowing how to move forward in ministry with our teams during this time of quarantine and social distancing. So far we have given out a lot of food bags and cleaning products, while doing less up close ministry. We request your prayers that we would be able to continue with ministry while doing our part to help ensure the health and safety of both those who come to serve, as well as those we are ministering to. 

3. We ask for prayer for the 3rd floor kitchen/dining hall project here at Connections House. We have relied almost solely on donations for this project and have seen a drop in donations this year, which correlates with the drop in ministry – also Coronavirus related. Pray with us that the Lord will provide the funds and materials to get this building operational by March 2021. This will allow us to add more beds and host larger teams, as well as multiple teams at a time. 

4. Ron had back surgery 14 months ago, which unfortunately has resulted in very little pain relief. This has been very limiting work-wise. Ron just had an MRI and has a doctor’s appointment on November 20th to look over the results and find out what the next steps may be. Please pray for wisdom for the doctors and that there will be an effective solution. 

Thank you so much for your prayers!
