Dear friends at Cornerstone Baptist Church
WE REALLY WANT TO THANK YOU!
You have been faithful to our support so that as partners in ministry we can continue to serve in Mexico. The border seems to be constantly in the news. There is a new drama series called “The Border”. Politicians speak or don’t speak about the border. Yet the most important thing about the border is that there are people that need to hear and feel the transforming power of the Gospel.
As you start thinking about the Fall and your ministry to your community, Please continue to include us in your ministry plans for outreach. This year your offering to our ongoing support was about $1404.70 and the year isn’t over yet. That is something to celebrate. Your generosity is much appreciated. We are so thankful for your prayers and support and for your ongoing pledge of support among the many other things that you do.
Please pray for our goal to grow our network of ongoing partners and supporters by 20 at a level of at least $50.00 a month. We are already seeing God’s provision in so many unexpected ways.
In the picture above, I am standing with Rev. Cal Lord who is a member of our Missionary Partnership Team. We are celebrating at the biennial in Puerto Rico. Blessings!
In God's Service,
