January 2014 Prayer Letter
Dear Pastor & Friends,
We are excited to share with you what the Lord has done in these past few months while we have been traveling in the states visiting churches. Our church in Panama is doing well and it joys our hearts to hear the reports of visitors going to church and also of people receiving Christ as their Saviour.
We would like to thank NEW LIFE BAPTIST CHURCH for sponsoring our Manna Children’s Feeding Center and also for sponsoring their Christmas Party. The kids had a GREAT time with lots of food, cake, piñata and PRESENTS!
Special Prayer Request: Please pray for my family in the recent passing away of my grandmother and my step-dad.
GOOD NEWS! We have the money to buy land! The Lord has allowed us to raise $20,000 to buy some land in Panama where we can build a church building. We have the option to buy the next lot for another $20,000 in the future. We also have some money which will allow us to start building right away. We still need a lot more to actually finish the building so please continue to pray for the Lord to provide!
COME to PANAMA and help us with the construction! Don’t take our word for it…come see for yourself what God is doing in PANAMA and have a HANDS-ON part of raising our building! Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org!
We also are excited and thankful to the Lord for providing THREE new supporting churches to partner with us to reach Panama for Jesus!
The same day that we arrive back in Panama there will also be arriving a young couple to work with us for two weeks. They have surrendered to missions and feel that it might be to Panama. Please pray for the Diehl’s that the Lord will reveal His will to them during this time.
Thank you all for your faithful prayers and support! May God Bless You!
Your servants in Christ,
Rafael, Tracy, Evelyn, Emily, Rafael Jr., Elisabeth
