  • Ross Family July 2017 News

    Dear Friends,

    Greetings from rainy Oaxaca. In the month of June we dealt with a lot of rain and clouds in Oaxaca. The landscape around us has changed from brown to green. We needed the rain but we dealt with three named tropical storms so we had lots of rain. The local reservoirs went from critically low to full in a couple of weeks.

    As the weather permits we continue serving several mountain communities. We received a request to help open an old airstrip that hasn’t been used for many years called San Miguel. We will make a trip overland to inspect the airstrip next week and then follow up with a flight afterward. Please pray for wisdom and safety in the whole process. Pray for open doors to share the gospel in this Mixteco indigenous community.

    Dear Friends,

    Thank you for your prayers. Yesterday we were able to buy gasoline for our airplanes for the first time in a month. We are very thankful to be in a position do flights again.Pray that the problems that caused the shortage will be resolved.

    At the moment we are experiencing the effects of Tropical Storm Calvin. We hope to be able to resume normal flights by late this week.

    Blessings,

  • Ross June 2017 Special Prayer Request

    Dear Friends,

    We would appreciate your prayers. There has not been any gasoline available for our airplanes for over two weeks and we were told yesterday that it could easily be another two weeks. Bottom line is that someone in the government agency that handles all the aviation gasoline in Mexico needs to authorize a shipment of gasoline to Oaxaca. Please pray that a decision will be made in a timely manner.

    Blessings,

    Mike & Joan

  • Ross Family April 2017 Ministry Update

    Dear Parkside Friends,

    Thank you, thank you, thank you! We so appreciate your faithful support and prayers on our behalf. We truly could not continue the work here in Oaxaca, Mexico without fellow Christians like you.

    Please pray for safety as Mike and Amos cover the flight responsibilities here. We are drawing to the end of the driest "dry season" Oaxaca has experienced in 50 years. This means lots of extra smoke and dust to interfere with visibility.
