Jesus Christ teaches us to sacrifice for others. We are especially thankful, this Memorial Day, for the sacrifice so many have made for their nation. We pray this weekend is a blessing for you and yours.
Next week marks a very important time for us. We would like to ask you to pray for our four AMO Trainer candidates.
Next week, in Oaxaca, Mexico, these women will complete their year-long studies with Dr. Elizabeth Youmans, as well as other professors, in a final practicum and evaluation (an actual five-day AMO training for approximately 30 parents and church leader) in order to be certified AMO Trainers in Mexico. Many of you have been praying with us for Elizabeth Bermudez, Elizabeth “Ely” Aguilar, Gloria Viveros and Esther Suarez for a long time now. This is a very important time of growth for the ministry in Mexico that will result in thousands of additional children, over time, being taught with biblical Christian education that will change the course of history for their lives.
Please, pray for Elizabeth Bermudez. Elizabeth will be travelling from California, U.S.A., to Oaxaca, specifically, for this evaluation. We’ve mentioned before that Elizabeth, her husband Chevy, and young son Nehemiah, who live in Oaxaca, have been in California for months for Chevy’s very specialized treatment to cure basal-skull cancer. He is doing much better and insisted that Elizabeth make the trip back to Oaxaca for her certification. Please, continue to pray for complete healing for Chevy, safe travel for Elizabeth (from California and back again after the evaluation), and for God to use this whole experience to greatly bless Nehemiah.
Pray for Ely. Ely’s church is hosting the training and so she has taken on a lot of the logistics and planning in addition to her final preparations for the training.
Pray for Gloria. In addition to her preparations, Gloria and her husband, Pastor Edgar Teran, are in the midst of settling into an apartment closer to the church they serve in downtown Mexico City.
Pray for Esther. Esther is a pastor in her church and has many responsibilities in addition to her preparation for this “final exam.”
Please, pray for our good friend, Cristina Inchaustegui. Cristina will travel from the Dominican Republic, representing Chrysalis International, to evaluate the four candidates for certification. Some of you will remember that Cristina conducted many trainings with us in Mexico before Francelia became certified to train.
Thank you for your prayers. We’ll keep you informed.
