Dear Valley Christian Church,
Your regular monthly support and prayers are truly making a difference in the lives that the ministry is touching each day. Jose is doing a remarkable job with the maintenance of the facility and seeing that the mission doors are open to all who are truly in need.
Jose is holding in home Bible studies, prayer visitation to neighbors in need of prayer and just a simple visit from a friend. Even though there are still some Covid restrictions in place in the city for the most part people are more accessible to having us into their homes and attending church on Sundays.
With summer approaching VBS is on the horizon and camps will be held this year with limited attendance Late July a film crew from Indiana and Florida will be visiting the mission and making a video for a special event we have planned for October. Things are looking up for the ministry.
With the van up and running we are able to have the children from the Vallado Children’s Home once again for church each week and for the afternoon.
The remaining balance for paying the clutch repair to the van is $497.00. We are grateful for the two very special gifts that allowed us to pay for part of the repair. Any extra help in this area would be greatly appreciated as to not take away from the regular monthly needs.
We truly thank you for your generous help!
We are humbled and blessed!
David and Sheri
Teaching by Faith
Jose has been asked to teach at the Colegio Cristiano del Centro (Bible College) located in San Luis Potosi, Mexico, starting this August 2021 - May 2022, school year. I (David) taught there from 1993 to 2008. It was a blessing to serve students that come with the desire to learn and prepare for ministry. His responsibility (class) will beTeaching Hebrew History I and II. It is just a quick 15 minute drive from the mission, so it will not take away from his responsibilities of serving to the inner city. Even though the College does not pay for his services, it will give Jose the opportunity to share his passion for ministry and the Word.
In last month's letter, we shared about a need for repaying the van repair (clutch). Update of Faith: Total bill was $854.00. To date we have paid $357.00. We have set up a payment plan to cover the rest. Thank you to two churches who have helped. We live by Faith, not by sight, but are also responsable to take care of all needs so we can best serve the community, children and adults that God has entrusted to us. Any help in this area of physical maintenance (van) would be greatly appreciated. Put "van repair" in the memo.
Preach and Teach the Word,
Jose, David and Sheri
