Prayer Requests/Answers to Prayer


Dear partners in prayer,,,

May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all. – 2 Corinthians 13:14

2. The seven Alliance churches of Paraguay are having a young adult’s weekend retreat March 4-5. The speakers are Noe, Marcos and Jorge. Please PRAY for the speakers and that many youth will attend and lives are changed at the retreat.

3. Noe and Keila Hernandez have been making good evangelistic contacts in the gym they go to in Asuncion, Paraguay. One of the employees has already come to know Jesus as Savior and now some others associated with the gym are interested and will be beginning this month a study of “The Purpose Driven Life” with Noe and Keila. PRAY for much fruit as the Lord draws them unto Himself.

4. We PRAISE God that there are three young men studying full time for the pastorate at a seminary in Asuncion, Paraguay. Please PRAY for Angel, Arnaldo and Diosnel as they press forward to their goal of being pastors.

5. Our hearts are burdened for the country of Venezuela(we served as IWs there from 2004-2008). The situation there has worsened as the people are without food (a UPI news article reports that 75% of Venezuelans lost more than 19 pounds last year!). The Alliance churches are strong and ministering to many who are turning to the Lord. Please PRAY for the people and the churches of Venezuela.

Thank you for praying so faithfully for us. Should the Lord lead you, you may give to us and our ministries the following ways:
