Prayer

Join us in Prayer…

Prayer is of transcendent importance. Prayer is the mightiest agent to advance God’s work. Praying hearts and hands only can do God’s work. Prayer succeeds when all else fails.

E. M. Bounds

Pray:

  1. God’s continued work of healing for our family as we grieve Hannah’s loss.
  2. That we can raise $30,000 for a new church plant in Tijuana in Hannah’s memory. We’d like to build the church in early 2018.
  3. Upcoming Incubator church planting training this Fall.
  4. MTW’s Global Missions Conference in Dallas from November 10-12.
  5. Wisdom for our leadership in Mexico as we seek to see the gospel go forth, and for the church to expand.
  6. Peter and Jenny Boling as they minister in La Paz, Baja California Sur. We are looking for a new church planter to join them.
  7. Petri & Yudy Petrikowski and their team as they begin to work on the new church plant, Renuevo in Ensenada. They need a new place to meet on Sundays.
  8. For Redeemer San Diego in their growing partnership with us on the Ensenada church planting project.
  9. Dawn and Dave need to work on raising more support and to trust the Lord to provide so that we will be fully funded, and be able to focus on the ministry on the border.
  10. For Jim DeWitt as he is ministering with our team, and serving with us in the area of executive administration and training.
  11. God is opening up some new opportunities as I get to know the leaders of the Mexican National Presbyterian Church on the border, and throughout Baja California.
    • Pray that my relationship with them will be strengthened, and for wisdom about the best way to work with them.
  12. For our relationship with the MTW Monterrey team as we work with them on various church planting projects including the church planter’s incubator training and training for coaches.
  13. The ministry of Ministerios Transformacion:
    • Pray for Pastor Daniel and Yolanda Nuñez and their ministry with Ministerios Transformación formerly Lo Mejor Del Trigo (LMT) in Tijuana. Daniel is the leader for the MT movement.
    • The new church plant in Rosarito, Mexico which is led by pastor Victor Bravo along with his wife, Sol. The church is celebrating it’s first year anniversary this month.
    • The new church plant in Valle Verde/Rivera del Bosque is off to a good start. Pray that it continues to grow under Pastor Ivan Casados’ leadership.
    • For Abraham and Martha Velazquez. Abraham pastors the Ministerios Transformación church in Rojo Gomez. He and Martha need wisdom as they balance ministry and family.
    • For Pastor Jaime and Valentina Rodriguez as they lead the MT in La Morita. He is also leading the Hispanic group at Bridge church.
    • For Pastor Jose Luis and Raquel Rivera. They are working in a difficult area called Lazaro Cardenas. Pray for the gospel to break through.
  14. The Lord has given Dawn and me some great opportunities to coach pastors and their wives in Tijuana.
  15. God’s blessing, wisdom and direction as I network on the San Diego – Tijuana border.
  16. Pray for our partners – especially Bridge church as the founding pastor Stephen Phelan and his wife Bradford just resigned and moved on to another ministry.
  17. Pray for the leadership of Bridge and Pastor Christian Castro as he helps to lead the transition.
  18. Pray for Dick Kaufmann who founded the former Harbor Network of churches. Dick’s been a great friend and coach to me. Pray for his health.
  19. That the Lord will raise up more workers. We need an administrator, trainer/educator, coordinator of mercy ministries, church planters, and evangelist. We are also praying for interns to join and help.
  20. Pray for holiness, wisdom, discernment, energy, and stamina and as we serve.

Our Family:

  1. David, Jr.works with United Technologies in Connecticut. He just moved there the end of last February. We are adjusting to him being so far away.
  2. Jonathan lives in Colorado Springs and is working at Security Services Credit Union while going to school.
  3. The Lord called Hannah home suddenly and unexpectedly on October 18, 2016. We are grieving her loss while remembering our hope of heaven.

    Hi, David, Dawn and Family, We are praying for you. It’s unclear to us what Hannah’s difficulties are, but we are still lifting her and all of you up in prayer. It’s pretty awesome to see you all pushing forward in the face of challenging times and trusting God. He is always faithful, as Samuel Rutherford put it “Seldom early but never late” in His answering. Congratulations to David for his great work at college and his job at Pratt and Whitney; it’d be interesting to hear what in particular he’s working on for them, as we have a bunch of aviation buffs here. Blessings on you all! Love in Christ, Lucy for the T family
