…and finding HIM!

Authentic, effective ministry always, alwaysflows out of union and communion with God. Then, if we’re going to be effective servants of the Lord,if we’re going to have something to give others,we have to cultivate and maintaina growing, vital, intimate love relationship with God.” Dear Friends, and Prayer Warriors,    I’ll be as brief as I can, […]

Nemo’s Story

The 2018 and 2019 mission team members that have served in Guatemala have had the privilege of getting to know Nehemias. During the last two years Nemo has worked beside our teams, doing “Whatever it Takes” to keep them safe, healthy, and provide them with the best mission experience possible. His fun-loving demeanor, passion to share the Gospel, and hardworking attitude have made him an invaluable part of the PBM team.

Fall Newsletter 2019 – Continuing to Seek HIM!

What an absolutely beautiful covenant promise that our Lord offers us in the verses above in Jeremiah 29:12-14! Yet, our Lord, in HIS infinite wisdom, places the first move (step of faith) in our hands, actually in our hearts! Who would not want to “find” the Lord HIMself..having HIS full Loving attention? To be gifted […]

Anya’s surgery & Day 30!!!

As you guys know, our story is very… different. A lot of people could say, “well God has forsaken you”, “why would He take your husband from you” “he was so young to die”. Those are a lot of “normal” statements I've heard. Especially because, as humans, we weren’t made to deal with death. We were made to live in perfect harmony with God forever. Death wasn’t supposed to be this jarring thing. It didn’t exist before Adam and Eve sinned. So I get the statements and the questions all the time. Death is difficult for me to wrap my head around. Most days it feels like Luke is gone on a trip that he’s never coming back from. Such an odd thing to process.

Day 28 –  “…a spiritual transaction” Huh?

My friends, Day 28 has arrived and only 3 days are left of our journey together in 30 Days of Prayer! The word “transaction” may seem kind of cold to describe the personal relationship we can have with Christ Jesus our Lord…yet it is one we can understand easily, as every one of us transact every single day of our lives…secularly speaking. So Prayer should be, as transactions are, a very normal, ongoing, exciting, interaction between us and “the Lover of our souls”…not someone just seeking something from us...or us seeking something from them, as is a worldly transaction…which have become incredibly common, but unfortunately cold (think online purchases) in our lives today.

Day 27 – “…for what is yet to come!”

Today is an exciting day because TOMORROW, Saturday, Oct 19th, we begin our final 3 day fast for this 30 days of prayer. The culmination of prayer leads to the PBM board meeting on Monday night. So we fast and pray for that and for the personal things going on in our lives.

Day 26 – “…what prayer cannot do.”

Prayer Warriors…here we are! Day 26, or only 5 days remaining in our 30 Days of Prayer journey! I am compelled to confess to you all; I have thought more about Prayer in these last 26 days than I have for well over a year. Yes, I Pray. I Pray often. PBM was/is built upon Prayer…but to Pray is one thing, to get to know our Lord HIMself through Prayer is yet another!

Action Bible Monthly Report

Guatemala October 2019 Greetings from Guatemala! It is so good to share with you how God is providing opportunities for us to reach hundreds of children with the good news of salvation through the Action Bible Program. At this time, we have focused on the San Marcos Area and a few schools in Peten, Totonicapan and Alta Verapaz.

Day 23 – “…tasted and seen that the Lord is good.”

In our last email on fasting, I challenged you to fast during Oct 19-21. If for no other reason, then because Jesus fasted. We saw all the miracles that came in His ministry, in part because of that sacrifice and His special connection to God. If He did it as a divine-human, we should even more so since we’re only human. It strengthens our connection with the Holy Spirit within us and our communications with God. It humbles us which allows God to be even more powerful in our lives.
