As I enter my third year of ministry as a Missions Mobilizer, and my sixteenth year serving our Lord Jesus with Evangelical Friends Mission, I am excited and very willing to let God use me in his kingdom to encourage, recruit, train, equip, and send many more.
One of the tasks that is exciting for me, as a Missions Mobilizer, is to be able to translate prayer letters from English into Spanish and thus be able to give Spanish-speaking Friends the opportunity to learn more about EFM and our missionaries’ ministries and needs. Besides that, my husband and I are interpreters at the monthly EFM Luke 10:2 Prayer Gatherings! We love going out to mobilize the churches, teaching and preaching about missions. It is exciting to see how interest in serving the Lord in other nations is awakening in the hearts of young people.
I am very grateful that God still gives us the opportunity to continue working hand in hand with Mexico Yearly Meeting. We are a part of their team to develop their new church planting project, Vision Mexico 32. This project’s goal is to establish a new Friends church in each of the 32 states of Mexico by the year 2032, sending two-three families of new planters per year. As we see the hand of God working on the results, my husband and I have committed to coaching the new planters that are going out into the field; we are currently coaching four of them.
We ask for your prayers in the coming months, as my husband and I are excited and preparing to lead the follow-up Luke 10 exploration trips to Mexico and Ecuador, seeking discernment and confirmation from God to know where to send new missionaries to launch new fields. We are praying and would like these teams to include future missionaries. Please pray for God to send more laborers to his harvest.
Luke 10 Exploration Trip #2 to Mexico: April 4-May 01
Luke 10 Exploration Trip #2 to Ecuador: June 5-15
I am excited to share our new ministry video. If you would like to use it and are unable to download it from YouTube, please contact Krista Alvarez.
|We are enthusiastic and looking forward to these wonderful ministry opportunities. So now I would like to invite you to be part of, helping me to continue to carry out this mobilizing ministry and all the tasks and roles that God is sending us to do as we carry out the Great Commission, through your support, firstly in prayer and, also, financially. My financial support is down to 63%, I pray that God will touch more hearts of joyful givers who would want to partner with me and be a part of what he is sending us to do for his kingdom.
Another need we have is to raise funds to carry out these second Luke 10 Exploration Trips. The one to Mexico will cost $1,600 per person and the one to Ecuador $2,000 per person. Some can go, others can pray, and others can support with their financial contribution. Edwin and I can go, would you please consider supporting these trips and being able to go with us through your prayers and financial giving? You can do so in one of the following ways:
I am sincerely grateful for so many of you who have faithfully been praying for us, supporting us, and showing us so much love during our 16 years of service with EFM. God evidently loves me and my family and one of the wonderful ways to show it is through you! Thank you!
“And he said to them, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore, pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest. Go your way; behold, I am sending you out as lambs in the midst of wolves.” Luke 10:2-3 ESV
In Obedience to Him,
