  • Ross Family May Tidings

    Dear Friends,

    Thank you for your faithful prayers in support of our ministry in Mexico. We are encouraged to see what God is doing to build His church in indigenous communities. We are currently in Ohio starting a furlough through August.

    Please continue to pray for the ongoing work in Oaxaca in our absence. Pray for our whole team as they continue the work and especially for Amos who is the only pilot and mechanic. Pray for safety in the flying and for wisdom as he will not be able to meet all the flight requests alone. He will need to prioritize the requests and say “no” to some.

  • Ross Family January 2019 News

    Dear Friends,

    Thank you for your prayers on our behalf. Joan and I count it a privilege to serve with you here in Oaxaca. God regularly answers your prayers for us providing health, safety and open doors for the gospel.

    We have recently been encouraged with indications that we could possibly be given permission to use a vacant government hangar on the airport here. The new Airport Administrator suggested it in a meeting and a friend who is interested in our ministry delivered our request to the new President of Mexico. A place to do maintenance on our airplanes has been part of our prayer requests for several years now. Please continue to pray!

  • Ross Family November News

    Dear Friends,

    Thank you so much for your faithful prayers.

    As we enter November it always seems appropriate to us to ponder on the many gifts from God for which we are thankful. So here are a few of them.

    • You and the rest of our faithful friends who uphold us and our work in prayer.
    • Our delightful new granddaughter, Arwyn. It was so much fun to get to meet her last month and also to play with her big brother, Gerrick.
    • God’s continued working in the lives of our children and grandchildren.
