Free Reformed Mission
- This month it will be good if we concentrateour prayers on pastor Xicara. Reports to the Mission Committee about himare very positive and encouraging. God has sent a man to Cubulco who hasa genuine calling to minister the Word to the Achi. Pastor Xicara has a lovefor the people and expresses that in a kind and caring way. Although he isnot a young man he consistently makes the arduous treks to visit theoutlying Aldeas. He is building rapport with the obreros and helping them tobe more effective in their leadership roles. During Sunday School classeshe is giving instruction using the catechism. The nearby hospital sees himon a regular basis ministering to the sick and injured. A busy scheduleindeed. Please pray that he can maintain his stamina; that his ministry willbe fruitful; that his rapport with leaders and people will strengthen more andmore.

would be strengthened for God’s
