August 2013Greetings from Guatemala,Cath here... once again thanking you all for your love, prayers and faithfulness to us and theprecious folks of Guatemala.To all our Churches, friends and family who read this, pray for us, support us, love us...we givethanks to God for you and to God be the glory for all that is done here on this mission field of Guatemala.We have not yet heard what the will of God is for this property where we minister but we mayhear something soon. While we wait we pray and praise God for His wonderful works through us,His will, His glory! Ephesians 3:
Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, 21 Unto him be glory in the churchby Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen
.A particular blessing to me (Cath) was to see our praise ministry of 12 precious young people ages16-25 praising God with their voices and instruments in our Sunday am service...all young peoplefrom our church. It is a blessing to see them grow through discipleship. One girl in particular,Jessica plays hammer dulcimer for our special music and she meets with me personally weekly fordiscipleship with such a hunger and thirst to grow in Jesus and in the knowledge of Him.Our women's prayer/bible study on Monday afternoons is growing with younger womenattending. One of our sweet prayer warriors from this group, Lolita went on home to be with theLord and we will miss her so and yet look forward to seeing her again. Another women's Biblestudy in Justo Rufino has invited me to come and minister on Thursday afternoons.Our Saturday rehearsals with our musicians from the different churches continue here for thetime being but not sure how to make plans for this season yet. The music school is on hold waitingto see when or where we should start classes again.With not knowing God's will concerning our church and music ministry we draw close to God andHe is growing our faith in Him. As we pour our hearts out to Him, He fills them with the promisesof His word that certainly strengthens our faith to run the race with patience (the patience whichdoesn't come easily to me, Cath) our eyes on Jesus the author and finisher of our faith. So all thestrength comes from Him and all the glory goes to Him...we just pray and make ourselves availablefor the faith and wisdom to know how to please Him, serve Him, teach others and love Him andothers more each day.God is working in amazing ways through Don as he teaches in the Bible Institute here inGuatemala city. What a blessing he is to the young men and women that are seeking God andgrowing to know Him more.I thank God for the opportunity that I had to visit the United States for a few weeks thissummer. Don thought it best to stay in Guate this time to reduce costs and take care of somethings here in the ministry with the church, tracts, Bible Ins
titute, Home Bible Studies, ….
