Friends and family,
Greetings from Mexico! Going into week 5 here! This week at the outreaches I was challenged to go and talk to the adults. Normally this is no problem for me, however, trying to talk to adults in a different language is hard! At our last outreach at the Chumeya Reservation, I was encouraged to eat lunch with the ladies. The Lord used this to encourage me through Julia. Julia is a quiet 20-year-old woman who lives in the Chumeya Reservation. The conversation I had with her was important to me because I was way out of my comfort zone, and this random lady was able to encourage me and show me that even though I barely knew how to talk to her, we were still able to connect by laughing together and have a decent conversation!
I was impacted this week specifically in the classes about the unreached people in our world! It was interesting for me to learn that for a people group to be considered ‘unreached’ they need to have no access to a Christian or the Bible. I am only one person, but God has put this desire in my heart to reach them, and bring the love of Christ into the dark places. There are 7,000 unreached people groups in the world. That is a total of 3 billion (THREE BILLION!!) unreached people. My vision is starting to form on how God wants to use me to reach these people…if you want to join me in reaching the nations with the gospel, you can partner with me in prayer and finances. I have a secure online giving link at the bottom of this page, and pray that God will continue to define my vision and direct my steps!
A man’s heart plans his way, but the Lord directs his steps.Proverbs 16:9
Thank you all so much for your prayers and support,
#1: Pray for the Chumeya people that we visited on Saturday. They live in a dark place and need the love of Jesus!
#2: Pray specifically for Julia and her family; that God will bring a full-time pastor into her community to encourage her!
#3: Pray for our outreaches this week: for boldness in the team and open hearts of the people.
#1: Thank the Lord for unity in the team! We all get along and work together well.
#2: Encouragement from people like Julia and the conversation we had.
#3: The Spirit is directing my paths and preparing me for long-term missions! It is a great adventure, and I am so excited to see what He will do!
