Greetings and Merry Christmas!
We are so thankful for all the Lord has done for us, and for the ministry, this year. Your involvement as prayer partners and supporters has made this year such a blessing for us as a family and ministry.
We want to share with you our praises from this year and our prayers for this coming year as well.
- There has been an increase of involvement in the ministry with people from the US and Canada
- The family is in good health
- Even though we have not been able to get up to our budget, God has always kept us with enough to live on
- The work has continued to grow, and there are more pastors and indigenous missionaries working now, than there has ever been in Western Honduras
- Many new churches have been started this year and thousand of new believers have come to know Jesus as their Lord and Savior in Western Honduras
- The coffee farm is thriving
Prayers for 2016:
- Pray that, as pastor training school starts back up again, that things will go well, and that all of the funds for this project can be raised.
- Pray for increased involvement from donors, so that this ministry can continue to grow.
- Pray that we can find people to partner financially with my family, personally, on a monthly basis. Our budget (for myself, Iris, and RJ) is $1200 per month, and at this point we only have $700 of that monthly support need being met.
- Pray that the ministry projects, such as church construction, feeding centers, Bible bookstore, coffee farm, motorcycles for pastors, and Gifts for Gracias can continue, and will be a blessing to the people here.
Thanks so much for keeping us in your prayers! The accomplishments of this ministry are achieved thanks to your involvement!
May the Lord bless you,
Russell, Iris, & R.J.
