We have many goals this year -- new ministry projects, for example. Our time at the beach with Anita's family was a beautiful experience. Our daughters are doing very well in their studies and their growth. Belen is sleeping better every night. Praise the Lord! This month was very busy for us, but very interesting and with great expectations.
Wonderful news: Genesis made her decision for Jesus Christ as her Lord and personal Savior. Praise the Lord. Please pray for her growth in the Christian faith.

PALM MISSIONARY MINISTRIES-Ec
We had various work meetings. Pray for our field missionaries and for us, because it's not easy. We need to always remember that the Lord Jesus is going with us.
We stopped the construction of our house, because we don't have more money for this just now. Pray for God's provision of funds, please. But we are very glad with the new rooms.
A pickup or jeep, used (four while drive) for our ministry in the mountains, because we have many invitations and opportunities to carry the Gospel, and pastoral training into difficult places.
A laptop & projector, for my presentations, class, conferences and messages. This tool is very necessary and urgent for our job.
And for spiritual support. The devil is very angry with us. We were suffering his hard attacks the last month.
"Because you are sons, God sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, the Spirit who calls out, Abba, Father"

Thanks you very much, for your help, prayers and support for us. God bless you all.
