3rd Quarter Prayer Letter from Fred and Joyce Davis:

” ‘As cold waters to a thirsty soul, so is good news from a far country.’ – Proverbs 25:25

Wonderful news! We have been praying for a man named Inco. A while back his wife who is a precious Christian lady, called and said they wanted to come to our house and talk. When they arrived, he told us he was ready to be saved. Our hearts overflowed with praise to the Lord as he humbly accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as his Savior.

Almost a year ago, we were asked to visit a man in hospice. He was dying of cancer. While he was still able, he accepted the Lord and a few weeks later went to be with the Lord. His unsaved wife was devastated. After many prayers and manny conversations Joyce was able to lead her to the Lord one Sunday.

We recently had our annual Youth and Young Adult camp. During the Camp this summer, Abigail, one of our teen girls accepted the Lord. A few weeks later we held our first Adult Camp at the same campground. Joyce and I were able to visit the camp one evening. Everyone had a great time and relationships were strengthened.

Our church surprised us with a gift for our 55th Wedding Anniversary. They presented us with a round trip cruise from Vancouver to Alaska. We sorely needed the rest and thank the Lord for the loving people He has given us.

Our daily Chinese devotion “A Moment With God” is reaching the Chinese in our area and also in mainland China. We also have people from China taking part in our weekly internet Bible Studies. Please pray for Christians in China. The powers that be are trying to stop the spread of the Gospel. We recently had to change our program ID becaus ethey started blocking our original ID.

Please pray for more souls to be saved, discipled, and baptized. Continue to pray for our health needs. May God richly bless you for your faithfullness.”

Santoso Family Prayer Letter

Ed Hoagland (5/23)

Dear Prayer Partners,

The longer I live in this world the better I understand that it’s less about what I do and more about who I do it with.  Ministry is all about working with others, it’s about training others to walk with us as we serve sinners and build believers.  So thankful for the teams of people I work with to fulfill the Great Commission.
This past Saturday a team of 20 people from our main church went with me to an area in front of a public market and did a special program for kids in Tultitlán and then we travelled 20 minutes to Tultepec to do the same thing at a government park.
We played games and sang songs with the kids as their parents and many others watched.  We taught them what the Bible says about being content and grateful in life.  The gospel was also given and a total of 106 people called on Jesus to be saved between both places.
Each person was given a New Testament and other important information.  We called this MannaFest 2.0 and a church in each location is doing the follow-up.  We’re now planning MannaFest 3.0 where we’ll seek to reach more Mexicans and strengthen more churches.
Then yesterday morning at our main church we saw God do it again during our Children’s Day special presentation.  The kids participated in our two services, they invited their friends, and in our second service we had our best attendance since Covid.  It was great to see so many new adults (34), such joy and happiness during our singing, and the attention given as I preached from the Bible.  Another 15 people received Christ as their personal Savior, we also baptized 2 new believers, and dedicated a baby to Jesus.
Finally, Sunday afternoon at our mission in Atarasquillo we saw 65 people show up for the meeting with 43 salvation decisions.  All this fruit makes me cry with tears of joy.  Nothing compares to the feeling that comes when God moves and blesses your efforts.  But it’s not about us, it’s about God in and through us.  Because without Him, we can do nothing.
All this is possible because of your prayers and financial support.  Still no word about camps for this year (keep praying), but God is opening other doors and ways to get the Good News out to more people.  Know this, Annita and I, along with many others here in Mexico City, will work till Jesus comes.  God bless.
In His Service,
Ed & Annita Hoagland

We’ve included a link to his recent letter below, as well as a message he shared following a positive visit to Centenary Baptist Church!

Prayer Letter

 

Greetings!

It’s been an exciting few months for our ministry AND our family! Many of you prayed for our youngest son and his wife, Garrett and Kristin during their miscarriages. Over this winter, we discovered that Kristin is pregnant again and will have a baby boy in August. Last week our oldest son and his wife, Christopher and Lorena gave birth to our first grandchild named Liam. We also found out that our other son and his wife, David and Hannah are expecting a boy in May. Christmas this year will be vastly different than it was in 2022!

In addition to this wonderful news, the Lord is really blessing our efforts and we’re receiving positive reports from the churches we have visited. I thought that you would be blessed by one of the messages I received a few weeks ago:

Brother Mike,

Thank you for teaching the Witnessing 101 class at Centenary Baptist Church.

By way of follow-up, I would like to let you know what it has accomplished. One salvation has occurred this week! Brother Curtis led a man to Christ by using your teaching. Two (2) men have decided to start visiting using your method and will begin this week.

We are also beginning a witnessing program reaching out to the 68 homes that we discussed when you came to the church.

Thank you for your help in starting a fire in our church for reaching the lost.

May God bless you and your ministry,
Pastor Tom Grant
Centenary Baptist Church.

 

Thanks again for your faithful support of our ministry! May the Lord richly bless your families and ministries this year.

In Christ,
Mike & Julie Coker
