It looks like an update from the Rosses is overdue. Thank you for your prayers. We have been dealing with a lot of rain over the last two months and some resulting damage to our unpaved airstrips. The Amoltepec airstrip became unusable because of deep ruts. There are some internal political problems there, so no one was willing to take responsibility to repair the airstrip. Last week a group of volunteers got together for a work day and now the airstrip is useable again!
Last month we celebrated the first group of 17 Christian leaders finishing their studies in ESI (Equipping Servants Internship). We enjoyed a time of worship and testimonies together. Several expressed gratitude for the tools and training to study the Bible and how this ability had enhanced their ministries in the local church. Afterward one pastor who did not participate in the program himself but who had four leaders in his church participate in the study told me that he cold not believe the positive change he had seen in his church as God's Word was faithfully being taught.more >
