Dear Brethren in Christ,

May the Lord's blessings be upon you as you witness for Him, and work toward reaching
others for Christ through your Christian example.

it is wonderful to serve our Lord. It is a joy and an honor to be able to tell others what God has promised to them that obey Him. We pray that all Christians everywhere may always have the desire to expand the Lord's kingdom, that we will never be satisfied with the present progress, but to the contrary, set great
er goals and reach them.

At the present time I am helping Bro. Antonio Medina here in the city of San Luis Potosi
where he has a home dedicated to house young men to be trained for the Lord's service. On Sun days I help Moises Saucedo and Benito Soliz preaching and teaching.

San Luis Potosi is one of the states in Mexico with fewer material blessings, but it is a great place to preach the good news of the Gospel of Christ.

Everytime that we speak, we ought to speak with a purpose because most people are feelers. They will listen if you make sense, and if they trust your motives. In most coses after lis
tening they are either upset or glad about it.

We talk to and teach people because we want to bring about a change in their spiritual behavior in a positive way. We plant, someone else waters, and the Lord gives the increase.
Qur boys are having exams this week, and while the other children are worried ours seem

calm and relaxed. Not because they are well prepared for them, but because they do not realize
what is going on.
We are still short of funds in order to meet the most essential. We would like to be able

to rent a house for us to live in. Would you consider us in your project? May we remind you to keep us in your daily prayers so that the Lord may give us strength and wisdom to help advance His kingdom. The love and peace of our Lord be with you all.
/N CHRIST,
