My Dear Partners in Prayer,
Praises: Yes, I went through the Mexican border without even a â€œtotalâ€ stop last Sunday afternoon and it was raining. The Inspector looked, waved a go ahead and I went forward. The cargo went well. I did NOT take the vice last week as it was heavy. It goes this week, I think. Things go quietly on Godâ€™s schedule.
Praise: the two days at the Calvary Chapel Bible College were a special blessing to me. These folks encouraged me as I was in their presence. As often happens, I had several opportunities to do â€œdeepâ€ counseling with some students. Sometimes an â€œoutsiderâ€ can do this effectively.
Petition: Maya Khatunâ€™s facial surgery by two doctors (the 8 year old angladeshi) was postponed until May 27. Pray it goes well.
Praise: my schedule often takes on unusual events. Thursday Iâ€™ll meet with Jewels Pattillo to take her to the DMV (Department of Motor Vehicles) for a California driverâ€™s license. Then weâ€™ll go to Ensenada, BCN, Mexico to Davidâ€™s and Jewelsâ€™ home. Iâ€™ll have overnight and then go on. (I hope to go to MGFâ€™ers Trino and Esther Ortizâ€™s home with the vice Friday a.m.)
25 PRAISES: Friday at 5 p.m. Twenty Five will graduate from the Calvary Chapel Bible College to move out into fuller ministry. All 25 are praising.
Not confirmed is this: I may be invited to teach or preach either on Saturday with MGFâ€™ers Luis and Christina Romero in Rosarito, or possibly on Sunday with MGFâ€™ers David & Debbie Tazelaar in Tijuana. (Pray, please.)
Praise for you: As you join me by praying, God works. Thank you for your continuing ministry. These days of mourning, rejoicing, loneliness and all other aspects of missing Bettyâ€™s presence cause deep sentiments within me. I am moving as slowly as I can and leaning heavily each moment on our Wonderful Holy Spirit as He leads me forward. Your prayers help.
Your fellow ambassador for Christ,
