Praying For The Children  -  June 9, 2015
God’s grace and mercy come because you pray!  Thank you!


Current Prayer Requests:
Pray:  Rancho Milagro has had no water from their well for 2 weeks.  The pump broke and they are searching for the lowest cost replacement.  A tank truck is bringing in water for drinking and cooking ($200 / 3 days).  All the plants in the gardens have now died and their orchards are struggling in the heat.  Pray this will be resolved soon!

Pray:  Jose and Yolanda have been invited to live at Rancho Milagro.  We must pray God will give them the guidance they are seeking from him as this would be a major change in their lives.

Praise:  The president of the native plant association for Baja California has expressed willingness to come teach a class to the children on local, edible plants this fall!

Pray:  It costs $495 per year per child for this program.  Pray God will move the hearts of many to sponsor a child this year. 

Praise:  Guillermo watered his garden and proudly showed us his garlic, squash, swiss chard, and radishes this week.  The children’s gardens at Una Luz Encendida are thriving as the children learn about God’s love for them.

Praise:  Drew Foisie from St. Aidan’s Episcopal Church (Camano Island) is riding with Jon this week, visiting the sites and hearing the stories.  He is learning how the theories of transformational development are woven into the baskets which carry one another’s burdens in the work we are doing.  It is a great week for all of us!
