Serving Locally & Mexico Trip

Last week Gretta had the opportunity to serve dinner at "Loaves & Fishes", a shelter in Harlingen, TX.  Our church here in TX sent a team of ladies up there to work one evening last week. Loaves & Fishes is a homeless shelter for men, women and families and they also serve breakfast and dinner 7 days a week.  They feed anyone...no questions asked.  They served meals to over 100 people the night they went.  It was a blessing to be able to serve people right here in the Rio Grande Valley and participate in mission work on a local level too.  And Gretta said...."we rocked those hair nets!"  :)  
David will be leaving for Oaxaca, Mexico Feb. 25-March 11.  It will take them 3 days to drive down to Oaxaca.  He is part of a team that will be working with "People Q", an unreached tribal group of Zapotec Indians in the mountains of Oaxaca.  They will be doing a dental/medical clinic in the village there. They will also have the opportunity to visit the SIL school at Mitla, Mexico (sil.org/Mexico) during this trip.  We have created a Prayer Guide that we would love to send you so you can join us in prayer while David is in Mexico on this trip.  If you would like to receive the Prayer Guide, drop us an email at Bamagv@aol.com  and we will send it right out to you.  We would love a huge prayer team for this trip!  Ultimately, we pray for God to be glorified through their efforts on this trip and that hearts will be softened to the gospel message of Jesus Christ.
