First, my apologies - I was faithfully uploading our monthly prayer requests, but I forgot to change the title for October and December, so the new requests still showed "September 2019" in the title. A big thank you to everyone who checks this list and prays for us. God bless you!

  • Family
    • We give thanks for special moments: the visit of my (Dave’s) parents in early December, our Christmas celebration at home and at church, and our family getaway to Tequisquiapan Dec 26-29.
    • We ask for your continued prayer for a job for Daniel, for health for Alexandra and Blanca, and spiritual growth for us as a family.
  • Ministry
    • Dave is thankful for progress on his Spanish resources. The new location is giffmex.org/wiki. All resources from the old site (articulos…) have been combined into 11 files. Some older Spanish materials got updated and integrated, and several new materials have been produced. Only a handful of materials to go.
    • Dave gives thanks for his students, who did well on their courses in early December. One group had a written exam, and another had an oral exam. All survived and passed, some with fewer bruises than others. 😊
    • Please pray for Dave for a busy January: grading from final projects to be turned in from November’s Revelation course, numerous team leader related projects, and initial prep for Reconnect this summer.
    • We are thankful to the Lord for Karla, who was baptized yesterday at our church while we were on a trip.
    • Please pray for Mario Angel, a baby who is in the hospital with respiratory problems. Mario was born in September to Lu, a single mom who attends our church.
    • Please continue to pray for Blanca’s kids’ ministries, and that soon she will be able to directly participate in them rather than just assist behind the scenes.
