Greetings and peace in the name of our eternal God, Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
As always, we thank our Lord Jesus Christ for taking us on this glorious journey, a journey of endless joy, speaking to our hearts and answering the call that he has given us, to do His work according to His ways and will.
During these past two months we have been on the road in and out of Virginia. The Lord has blessed us with Meetings in Florida and Virginia. We had the privilege of speaking and presenting our work to Temple Baptist Church in Sarasota, Florida and Memorial Baptist Church in Ocala, Florida. We had a Mission Conference at Hampton Roads Independent Baptist Church in Hampton, Virginia; at the end of the Conference, the Church voted and decided to partner with us. We also presented our work to Fellowship Baptist Church in Norfolk, Virginia and Tidewater Baptist Church in Chesapeake, Virginia. We greatly rejoiced and were refreshed in the Word and amongst the brethren as we were blessed. We also visited other churches to introduce ourselves. Praise the Lord for His goodness, mercy and grace. Pictures can be seen on our Facebook page Jean-Claude and Matilde Guilbaud – Missionaries to Costa Rica
We praise the Lord, as always, for His protection (physical and spiritual) and provision, as well as the wisdom that He gives us to do His work. We also praise the Lord that He gives us good health so we can serve Him with all our strength, to adore Him in spirit and in truth with all our hearts, and to glorify Him in everything that we do. The Lord is Good!
As we press on, continue to pray for the following prayer request, but one in particular. My wife’s physical need with her varicose veins, it has gotten worse because of sitting too long in the same position in the car. We have to stop every one to two hours, maximum, to stretch and walk in order to prevent blood clot.
- Support Levels
Pray as we are on full time deputation that the Lord will guide us to the right church and have favor along the way in order to obtain our support, so we can arrive on the field by December 2017 or sooner. As of now, we are about 14%.
- Safety with Travels
Pray that our Lord, God would protect us on the road. We will be in Georgia in November than back to Virginia for more meetings.
- Schedule of Meetings
Pray that our schedule will be fill for next year. So far the Lord has blessed with other meetings in VA, GA, NC, NYC and possibly in Florida and California. Praise the Lord!
- Softness of Attitudes
Pray that our hearts would stay soft, to have a humble attitude, to stay close to God, and focus on Him. Also for the churches that we have been in contact with.
Thank you for your faithful prayers, kindness and love, but most of all for your faithful service for our Lord!
Under His Wings Reaching the World for His Glory.
In Christ alone
