Hitting the highlights this month . . .
We collected donations, via Facebook , for Children’s Illustrated Bibles available through a contact with Last Days Ministries. LDM got a case of them donated for free! Thanks Carol D. The children loved them.
Wayne connected with VOB partner Peter K. and his men’s group from Northern California who traveled to Tecate Mexico to shingle a new roof on a children’s dining hall. It was great fellowship, great fun with the kids and a long lasting blessing of a shelter from the sun and rain. We also gave each kid a new pair of shoes – thanks to VOB supporters.
We created, and continue to create care bags for those who live on the street. A VOB partner and a neighbor of ours’ (both travel for work), supply us with multitudes of hotel bathing products! These items, matched with donated toothpaste and an online bulk purchase of toothbrushes, turned a little bag of love, into a large blessing, to souls in many desperate situations. Thanks Peter S. and Christy W.
We are grateful to serve in Mexico and grateful for you on the home front! We would like to beckon you for one small, yet important task. A good missionary friend strongly encouraged us to make sure that others are praying for Wayne’s safety in Mexico. Safety, as well as border official hassling, does make for a trying trip across each day. We thought there might be some of you who would be interested in getting a text from Wayne when he (along with his angels) is about to cross the border, so you can agree “yes Lord”! If you are interested (and able – as we just got new phones and entered the world of texting)…just let us know if you want to be added to the group. Let’s cross the busiest international border in the world together!
One thought on “VOB News October 2010”
IT IS SO AWESOME 2 RECEIVE BORDER CROSSING TEXS. I DROP EVERY THING IN MY MIND RIGHT THEN AND SAY A PRAYER & BLESSING. I FEEL AS THO I AM GOING UNDER (ground) COVER WITH GOD ON A SECRET MISSION ACROSS ENEMY LINES.(but i know mexico is not our enemy lol) ANY WAY, IT’S A BIT SPUR-OF-THE-MOMENT RUSH IN JESUS. IF I DIDN’T GO ON THESE TRIPS THIS WAY WITH WAYNE & CAROL, I WOULD NEVER GET TO GO OVER THERE. 🙂 THEY CARRIE MY HEART & PRAYERS EVERY TIME IT’S ” TEX ” TIME 🙂 I AM VERY GRATFULL. XOXOXOXO JANE
