Mark's Mom has experienced the reality of her faith. She is with Jesus. Please pray for Mark's Dad and the family.
With the present 'stay at home' order in Costa Rica, please pray for the children that are now locked into abusive homes with no school and no church to escape to.
Thanks to special offerings from God's people 506 bags of groceries have been delivered to families living in "crisis" in all three of the primary ministry areas in Costa Rica - Los Guido, La Carpio, and Tejarcillos. THANK YOU! Please pray that this tangible way of caring for the most needy will point them to the Lord Jesus.
Please pray for Rosa, Lucrecia, and Josefina - the ministry front line workers at the feeding center.
Lucrecia's husband has tested positive for covid and so she and her two children are quarantined in their home for 2 weeks. Diana will be helping at the feeding center for these 2 weeks. Please pray for Lucrecia's family and pray for God to protect the feeding center operation in order to continue to bless lots of kids.
Because of the sharp increase in covid cases, many parts of Costa Rica have returned to total lock-down. At La Finca, the feeding center remains open but there are no other activities taking place there. All of the discipleship groups have again been suspended. There have now been 20 Sundays with no church service.
Please click here to follow us on facebook. Photos are being posted of some of the folks that are graduating from one discipleship book to the next. Please pray for them by name - for their protection both physically and spiritually, and for the disciples that they are also teaching. Please do not grow weary in praying for La Finca. A court case has been in process for nearly ten years where another person is claiming ownership of La Finca. The case has recently been moved to a new court house with a new judge. The judge has called for one, and only one, hearing where each party will have the opportunity to present three witnesses and then he will announce his verdict. Please pray for this court hearing scheduled for June 30.
For many years now the "final" court date has been canceled at the last minute and AGAIN we have received the call that the court has canceled today's hearing. AGAIN! So disappointing! So discouraging! And yet we are thankful that our God never looses control of any situation and this doesn't take Him by surprise. Again, we ask that you do not grow weary in prayer. We believe that God will have the victory even if it is delayed. Luke 1:37
Please pray for Pastor Sam, Pastor Iván, Pastor Ludy, and Mark as they pastor and lead churches in very difficult areas. Pray for their physical and spiritual protection. Pray for the protection of their flocks as the devil continues to be fierce and unwavering in his attacks.
