Faith comes by hearing

Faith comes by hearing

We first would like to say thank you for everyone’s prayers for our family as we traveled. We are back in Ocala, Fl. now. We spent a few weeks on the road sharing with others about our family and ministry, the great needs and challenges we face, and the many things that God is doing in the DR that we are privileged to be a small part of. We met many brothers and sisters in different states and were overwhelmed to find out how many people knew about and have been praying for us. We are so grateful, and in so many ways we are in need of the continued faithful prayers of the saints back home. We are confident that the Lord hears them.  Thank you.

I thank my God always when I remember you in my prayers,- Philemon 1:4 ESV

What is man?

What is man?

I often wonder why an Almighty, Holy, and Sovereign God is concerned about my needs.  Who am I? I know Jesus said that we are not to be anxious about food or clothes, and that He provides for the ravens and we are of much more value than them ( Luke 12:24). But why does He provide so many times and is so faithful to do so? Now, I know it is because of who He is. And I know that He does not change, and because of this, whatever He has promised we can trust that He will do. But, in light of who He is and who we are, if God did not answer one more prayer, or provide one more thing, He would still be worthy of worship. It is thinking of all this that leaves me so in awe of Him. There is nothing special or worthy about me or anyone else, it’s just who He is. It’s all grace. Which makes His blessings and answered prayers that much more beyond my understanding.

Salgado D.R. Mission Newsletter 19

Dear mission partners, friends, brothers and sisters in Christ. We are presently back in the United States for a visit. It is great to take the opportunity to see family and friends. The kids get the chance to see their old friends, and today they got to see fresh snow fall for the first time! They were pretty excited about it. There is none of that in the DR (or Florida either for that matter, lol). And although we love to be here as it refreshes and recharges us, we miss our brothers and sisters in the DR. We are currently in Tennessee as I write this, but we wanted to share a  few different reasons why we are here on this trip.
