APRIL 17 UPDATE FROM GIFFORDS:
Thank you to all of you who are praying for us and supporting us in different ways, and everyone who sent support gifts in March. Our support is on track and we should, Lord willing, reach our 90% support goal for the year. Thank you!
Please pray for music: If kids club and youth club weren't enough, Blanca now has a couple music teachers coming on Thursdays to give music lessons to her and to a number of the unchurched young people who have been coming to the youth club. They are young people who attended the kids club, outgrew it, yet kept attending. Each 'student' has to make a commitment regarding attendance, and contributes toward the cost of the lesson, and we have a fund that covers the rest. Our hope is that more of these young people will be enveloped into the life of the church.
My New Testament classes, preaching and my leading of the Resonate Mexico missionaries are going well. I am working on resources for the book of Jude to publish on http://articulos.giffmex.org. And I hope to soon begin leading a study on the book of Revelation for a few InterVarsity leaders who heard about the intensive bachelors and masters courses I have taught here previously on that book. Please pray that the Lord uses what I do, to impact my students and those who use our website, and through them touch many more as well.
