"For we through the Spirit eagerly wait for the hope of righteousness by faith.
For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision avails anything, but faith working through love." Galatians 5

Are you waiting eagerly for the hope of righteousness??? I sure am :) How I long for the day that I will be free of this fleshly body and my wicked, wicked heart. How I long for the day that we will live in the splendor and majesty of our God. How I long to hear the words, 'Well done, good and faithful servant'. I cannot wait to see the fruit of our lives here on earth. I long for no more tears, no more pain, no more goodbye's. I long to hear the angels sing; Holy, holy, holy is the Lord, God Almighty. Who was, and is, and is to come.
That day is coming soon. It's coming SOON. Are we living each day as if it was our last? Are our hearts longing for eternity? Do you long to see the Savior's face?

Last week we had a group here from Calvary Chapel Lincoln. There were a huge blast and a huge blessing. They brought 250 gift from their church and also Calvary Chapel Wichita. What a HUGE Blessing it has been to distribute the boxes. Christmas in January :) The kids were not complaining ;) Below is little Uriel, from Huazahuari, with his box.
This last Tuesday the ladies from Osobampo put together a baby shower for Carla. Her due date is February 7th. It was a wonderful time of fun, fellowship, and of course the word. Below we have Tola and her youngest, Ana Sofia.Doña Yaya with gift boxes for her grandchildren :)Adaneli opening her box !!!Adaneli, Dorly, and her cousin on Sunday night.

The group from Nebraska also lent a helping hand to our dear sister in Christ, Chuy. Chuy owns a taco stand in Navojoa. The group gave the place a face lift :) :) They also sealed some roofs for us here on the ranch. Not to mention the wonderul treat of having them cook for us! Chili and cheeseburgers were the highlights :)

Prayer Request:

1. That Carla would have a safe delivery. Protection for her and baby Rebecca.

2. Martin and Eubodia's family. They are new believers who live in Huazahuari. Their daughter, Ophelia, delivered a baby prematurely and with complications 2 weeks ago. Ophelia had emergency surgery that did not go well. She is now home in Huazahuari but is still very weak. Please pray for her, her baby boy, and the whole family. Please pray that the Lord would continue to work in their lives. Please pray that the enemy would be bound from their house and that he would have no hold on any of them.

3. Please continue to pray for all of the villages that we visit: Osobampo, Mocuzari, Las Minitas, Jusibampo, Huazahuari, San Antonio, Jijiri, and Tesia. That the word would go forth with power!

4. Keep Dan in your prayers and he goes to the jail in Obregon on Mondays.

Thanks to all of you for your prayers and your support. May God bless you and keep you planted firmly until the day of His return!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Christmas and New Year's :)

Hello Everyone! I hope that you all had a wonderful Christmas and New Year. We had a wonderful time here at the Ranch. Lots of people, food, and parties :)
Above is a pic of Josie showing off her beautiful christmas tree cookie.

Above is Alexi, from Osobampo, showing off his angel :)

The week before Christmas we got stuck in Navojoa... The bus just WOULDN'T start after church Sunday morning. The guys put their heads together, but to no avail. On the left you see a "UFO" in someone's hand under the hood. It's actually a lemon. They guys thought perhaps the problem had to do with the corosion on the battery cables. Solution: Grab a lemon off the tree and clean the battery. Who would have thunk it?????

Having Brian, Rochelle, and the twins here has been a huge blessing. Brian returned to TN yesterday but Rochelle and the boys will be here til the end of the month.

Dan and Ana should be back tomorrow. They left from CA this morning. They went to CA for the Calvary Chapel Missions Conference. We have missed them. I can't wait for them to get back!

Carla had another ultrasound yesterday. Once again they told her it's a girl. Her due date is February 7th. We think she's going to pop before then though! So exciting!

So, we have begun a new year! 2012. One year closer to the coming of our Lord!!!!

"Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear:
For our God is a consuming fire." Hebrews 12

Remember that, our kingdom CANNOT be moved. I'm expecting alot of big changes, scary ones, to happen in the world this year. Things seeme to be getting darker and darker. Light and truth are being persecuted everywhere. But yet we will ' God acceptably with reverence and godly fear'.Why? Because our kingdom CANNOT be moved. Our God is an all consuming fire. He is THE all consuming fire. He is on the throne and nothing can EVER change that :)

God bless!
