Years ago, I didn't see much harm in Holloween. It seemed like harmless fun. I don't want to be critical of anyone who celebrates trick or treating with kids. But I have also come to realize in my 6 years of living here in Mexico that the spiritual world is very real. Most of the work that we do here in the children's home is not so much physical but spiritual. Satan has had his way with families here for generations. The result is thousands of kids that are abused and abandoned. There are real live witches that live within walking distance of our children's home. Some of them have been so bold as to ask for our children or they will put a spell on us!
This year, in the children's home, we are spending Oct 30 & 31 in the evenings praising God in worship.

Medical Outreach in Rio 3

We recently hosted a medical outreach team at Rio 3. They were able to serve this very poor community from the inside of the church that we have been constructing for 4 years now. The building is a huge blessing to the church as they serve this community in practical ways. This medical team was an added blessing because they not only provided medical treatment but also brought groceries to stock Olga's soup kitchen pantry.

I have been thinking a lot about the testimonies that God gives each of us. The thing that I have discovered is that they are all God's testimonies. You see the point is that whatever happens to us is to be used for God's glory. I have learned to try and remember that in every story that I am a part of or have a chance to witness, it is not about us. It is all about God! God uses us and allows us to even suffer sometimes so that He can be glorified. I think if we fail to use our testimony for anything but to show the world about God's great power, mercy and love for us then we are not honoring Him.
Recently, we have witnessed and even been a part of some amazing stories of God showing His love for His children. I want to be sure that in every way I give God all the glory for what He has done!
