Brothers and sisters, once again God gives us the privilege of sharing with all of you part of what The Creator continues to do in our lives and through our lives. Wow! One more month full of blessings from God. We thank God for all the time you take to read this newsletter to continue to be aware of how you can pray for us. We ask that you please continue to pray for the Ministry of Dios Me Ve and for all the families that make up this Ministry.
I would like to share with all of you what our Lord Jesus Christ is doing in the life of Abraham, a young father who has been gathering in Dios Me Ve for about 6 years; since he was around 13 years old. Today he is a 19-year-old Young man with the responsibility of raising his little son named Jacob. Abraham is Enrique’s brother, the young man who is studying at the New Tribes Missions Bible Institute in Chihuahua. We have been observing Abraham’s attitude and his positive response to the Gospel and to the teachings of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Five months ago God blessed Abraham with a little house through the Ministry of Hands of Mercy with which he entered into a new stage of greater maturity both spiritually and as a man responsible for his wife Michel and the great blessing that God has given them of their son Jacob. Abraham and Michel spoke with me (Pastor Hector) in order to present the beloved little Jacob before the Lord and Creator of everything. The intention of this young couple was to dedicate their son to the service of God and to be guided by the Scriptures to lead a life that pleases God in their entire family environment. God is doing great things in His Ministry of Dios Me Ve, maybe not with multitudes, but we can see the faithfulness of God and the guidance of the Holy Spirit through His Word, leading young couples like Abraham and Michel to take big steps of Faith by obeying the instructions and teachings of the Scriptures. Today, Abraham is the one who helps me in the Ministry of the Church with everything required in the maintenance and construction of the buildings. It is for these reasons that I ask you in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ to keep Abraham and Michel and their little son Jacob in your prayers, so they can continue with their plans to get married and be better before God and the system of this passing world. Pray for them so that if it is God's will they can be the columns of the Church that is established in the region of the Colonia 89 in Ensenada, Baja California.
As many of you may already know, in previous newsletters we have kept you updated on our health as a family and how we have been battling with different serious health problems, especially my wife Maribel. Again we would like to give you an updated report since we have all been struggling with health problems. Thanks to God, Maribel continues her treatment, which little by little has been bringing her to a state of tranquility in her physical health and bringing a Peace from God, although she was physically intervened with surgeries on different occasions this year. We hope in God that she will continue to recover from everything and continue to be of great help within the Ministry of Dios Me Ve.
As for myself (Pastor Hector), I am really very grateful to God for all this time that He has allowed me to be walking, even with a little pain and a few difficulties when performing certain movements. Thanks to God I have been in a progressive recovery with good results, but the doctors have told me about another surgery to remove the titanium structure that I have in my spine, since two of the screws are poorly fitted and cause discomfort when I make certain movements. I will continue praying about my surgery, letting myself be guided by God, without worrying that I have to be operated once more and again go through all the rehabilitation in order to reach once again the physical state in which I find myself today. I thank God for your lives and for all the fidelity you show to God, for having us in your prayers and supporting what God continues to do in our lives and through the Ministry of Dios Me Ve. We will continue to teach the Word of God so that the brothers and sisters of Dios Me Ve can be strengthened in the Lord and may take more authoritative roles within the Ministry in order to continue the spreading of the Gospel within this community. I ask for your prayers to continue sharing the Gospel to all those who need it so much. Pray for our health, so that God will guide the doctors to make the best decision for our family.
About two years ago Maydean had a serious problem with a deformation of her cornea in both eyes; through your prayers and all your support, she was able to undergo surgery to improve her sight physically. According to the doctors, this surgery would help her improve her vision and help her stop having intense migraine headaches, which would not allow her to work and had her away from certain activities inside and outside the Ministry. Before and during surgery Maydean ran the risk of losing her sight in its entirety but thanks to God everything went well. Unfortunately, since the surgery and up until now the headaches have not yet stopped and now Maydean has also been experiencing severe pain in her ovaries. These pains often force her to stay inactivate and set apart in her personal space, which is why we ask for your prayers, so that the doctors can inform us of what is going on with her headaches and ovaries so that she can receive medical treatment and rest from her pains as well as the physical problems she had because of the deformation of her corneas. Currently she is enjoying a better physical and spiritual sight and continues to participate in many activities inside and outside the Ministry, but with some restrictions because of her pains.
As for the health of Hector Jr., he always seems to be very well but recently he has had many pains in his abdomen so in this month as a family we will be setting aside some time to receive medical checkups. Please keep Jr. in your prayers, since we think that maybe he has a hernia in his abdomen because of all the work in the different Ministries of Dios Me Ve. We would also like to inform you that Hector Jr. is about to finish the career that God has led him to take within the University (Law), first God he will be finishing his schooling in December. Please keep him in your prayers for God to guide him in this new stage of his life, either within the Ministry or in what God has prepared for His son Hector Jr.
Once again thank you for all your support and constant prayers; you are a huge blessing for us.
