In Full Swing

The New Year has started off with a bang! We pray for and give thanks for your part in this growing community of AMO México and that you sense God’s leading in all you do this year. We ask your prayers for the following:

Thanks ~ For AMO Trainers of Tabasco (Marlene, Esther, Diana, Africa) who held a training at Sureste Presbyterian Seminary. Petitions ~ Please pray for Loyda, one of those who attended this training. Loyda is a missionary in one of the most troubled and impoverished areas in Chiapas. Her heart is now set on establishing AMO Programs there. Pray for our team as they walk with her. Also pray for Doris who also attended this training and is now feeling called to establish a Christian school using AMO as the core curriculum. Pray for collaboration among her and others who have the same calling.

Thanks ~ For the training which started in Oaxaca. This training will be carried out in five consecutive weekends by Betzabe, Pablo, and Elizabeth A. Petition ~ Pray for Betzabe and Pablo and for Elizabeth as she mentors them during these weeks.

Thanks ~ For the training which opened in Merida, Yucatan, today. Petition ~ Pray for the young trainers, Mildred and Ruby, as they train throughout this week, gaining more experience and confidence.

Children and their church inspiring their community to celebrate learning.

Thanks ~ For the upcoming training in Xalapa, Veracruz. Petition ~ Pray for God to break the grip of organized crime in this state (as well as the nation). Pray for Esther S. and Fidel as they lead the training and for us as we go to assist them and visit other churches and programs there and in Tabasco.

Thanks ~ For our time with other ministries, sharing information and making new friends, at First Presbyterian Church of San Antonio, TX. Petition ~ Pray for this church as they renew effort and focus on discipleship for reaching their city and world with the full Gospel of Jesus Christ. Their initiatives using AMO has been key in transforming communities in Dominican Republic and Mexico.

Thanks ~ For the wonderful festival celebrating learning and God’s vision for life by Principe de Paz Presbyterian Church of Comalcalco, Tabasco. Director and AMO Trainer Esther Velazquez and husband Samuel organized the event along with the pastor and leaders of the church. The celebration included good food, music, a play depicting the Heidi classic, which the children recently studied, and a parade through the city streets! Petition ~ Pray for God to use this celebration to impact the community with a Godly vision for life and learning.
