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.
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.
Day 20, of our 30 Days of Prayer to be Centered in HIS Holy and Perfect will for this, HIS ministry is upon us. That Prayer is not simply for PBM, for if you are Praying for “The Center of HIS Holy and Perfect will”, that same Prayer will also transform your life as it has mine. There is no better place to be than in the Center of HIS Holy and Perfect will! No better place, now or Everlastingly!
Hey PBM Family, We celebrate with Bruce and Jen as after 111 days in Parkland Burn Center in Texas, they have been successfully moved to Florida…back to their home and family! This is something they have longed for, for a very long time. Mountains continue to be moved through the thousands that have and are […]
In response to a Sunday morning Church service where someone shared about an upcoming mission trip to Guatemala, my then 8-year old son Jacob looked at me and said “I want to go to Guatemala! I can use my Spanish to tell others about Jesus.” Jacob is a Spanish Immersion student and he wanted to […]
The focus of every program within Paradise Bound is to bring the Gospel of Jesus Christ to those who do not know him as their personal Lord and Savior. Presenting the ministry to those who are not familiar with PBM is simple. We share the process from the initial impact within a village through medical […]
In 2019, there are over ﬁve million children enrolled in elementary schools within Guatemala. Our Action Bible Field Director, Nelson Morales, has a goal to reach as many of them as possible with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. These beautifully illustrated Action Bibles are an amazing tool to introduce children to the love of their […]
“People all over America and the far reaches of the world are beginning to see that fasting is not just for a select few—but that God is a rewarder of all who diligently seek Him. Fasting and prayer bring you closer to God. While that may be a brief answer, it is by no means simplistic. Fasting is a short season that releases long-term rewards.”
“After Jesus had spoken these words; ‘But take courage, I have overcome the world’, HE looked up to Heaven and Prayed, ‘Father the hour has come, Glorify your Son so that the Son may Glorify you since you have given HIM authority over all people to give Eternal Life… And this is Eternal Life, that […]
For those of you who might have known Luke slightly better, I’m Ashley. I have 3 daughters - twin 3.5-year-olds and a nearly two-year-old. I’m also 32 weeks with my youngest. Yes, they are all girls! Their names are Nicole Faith, Isabella Grace, Brooklyn Hope, and Amari Michaela Mercy.
Why 30 Days of Prayer...again? It has been nearly 1-1/2 years since PBM called upon you to call upon our Lord in 30 Days of Prayer specifically for PBM. Then it was for the largest decision to date of PBM...through that 30 Days of Prayer we realized it was not a decision (facts and figures), it was to be discernment, and that can only come through Prayer!
