God bless!

It is time for another update! I can’t believe how fast this year is going.  I wanted to update you on our ministry here in Cincinnati, and a little of our personal lives as we prepare to move back to Mexico. I will address more on this subject in the next newsletter explaining our plans, location, and needs, but before that we wanted to share what God is doing here in Cincinnati and in our personal lives.
Cincinnati Ministry

A couple of months ago at Western Hills Church of Christ we had an outreach service we called “Mission Hope.” Both Hispanic and English services dedicated a Sunday to go out and serve the community.  As a Hispanic church, we wanted to do something that would allow both parents and children to experience something together that would show God’s love and help them continue the conversation outside the church.  So, we decided to go out and feed the homeless. It’s hard to really feed the homeless with one simple task but we wanted to show God’s love and share the blessings that we have received.  

We ended up packing 36 bags with food, snacks, and a drink, and visited the downtown area. One of the neatest experiences was when Brayan Castaneda shared a bag with a homeless person, who in tears told him that just 5 minutes earlier he was praying to God to feed him. This encouraged Brayan in a strong way as he felt used by God to show His love and compassion.

We know that this is a simple meal, and we may not erase their hunger needs. But as Christians we are called to share His love and bless others as God has blessed each one of us. Please join us in prayer so God will continue to watch over them and that he will allow us to be His hands and feet on this earth.

As you also know later this year we will be leaving the Church in Western Hills that has been a part of our lives for all this time. Cincinnati is where we started our married lives and had our son Ethan. We have seen many member’s kids grow spiritually and physically. This was my first preaching ministry and the members of the Church have become like a family to us. It will be hard to move on for us and for them. It is both exciting and sad to move forward as a big part of our hearts will forever be here in Cincinnati. We ask that you pray that God will send someone that will help the Church grow in this next chapter, as we know that we have grown with them. We know that God will continue the growth of the church with the paster that will follow. Please pray for each member, and for us as we move to Mexico and pray that God will bring someone soon so we can begin working on the transition of ministry.
 

Immigration


As we continue moving toward our vision of moving to Mexico, we have begun working on finalizing all of our immigration status’. Gloria is waiting for an appointment to take the U.S. Citizenship test. We have been on hold for almost a year because there were a lot of applications sent in around the same time last year. We are hopeful that before September she will have completed that process. Please pray for Gloria’s process and that God will give her the knowledge and understanding as she prepares to take the test.

Ethan and I will also begin doing immigration papers once Gloria has completed her process. We will work on becoming Mexican citizens. This process should not be complicated but we ask for an easy transition during this time.

Both of these situations will help prevent any immigration complications both in the US and in Mexico. Please pray with us.
