March 2022 – Prayer Letter
Dear Beloved Brethren and Co-Laborers,
As always, we cannot over state this, we thank and we will keep on thanking our Eternal God, Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for sending us on this glorious mission. It is truly a joy as we do His will even in difficult times.We pray that His Holy Spirit will keep on guiding us in the right path of righteousness, to be obedient and faithful until the end. We understand that we are living in difficult times and we do immensely thank you for your support, prayers and we praise the Lord for your faithfulness.
Praise the Lord all the vehicular restrictions have been lifted but all others remain the same such as, social distancing, wearing mask and occupancies in public spaces and places of worship.
As we press on, please pray and continue to pray for the following prayer request:
- Continue praying for the project that I have been working on, Outlines and Commentaries in Spanish for all the Books of the Bible. I am still working on the 1st Epistle of John, at the moment I am still in Chapter 2 verse 28; I didn’t have a chance to study and work on it while we were in the States. The booklet that I wrote and titled Focusing and Trusting in GOD in the midst of Difficulties & Storms will be distributed to all the churches that we will be going to during our visit and we know that it will be a great blessing. For those of you who didn’t get a copy, you can download one from our website www.guilbauds2costarica.com under BOOKS – Spanish & English. The Commentaries and Outlines can also be seen on our website under the Tab Spanish Bible Commentaries & Outlines, as well my preaching under Media/ Sermons in Spanish and Sermons Notes under Spanish Sermons, Notes and Outlines.
- Our health in order to work in His vineyard. Thank you for your prayers while we were in the States.
- Place for the ministry – Once we returned from the States, we were going to start the ministry, by faith, without having all our support to 100%; but unfortunately we were informed, just this week before we left for the States, that the place has been rented out. We felt a bit discourage after waiting all that time and preparing all those documents. Now we have no other choice to start all over, going through the same process and find another place. Well, I believe the Lord has something else in mind. Pray with us as we ask the Lord for wisdom, guidance and direction concerning this matter. Pray regarding a piece of property that we have been looking at in our area that the Zoning will be suitable for a church building; this property has been on the market for a while now. I will be doing the design and a local architect will be doing the construction documents. But in the meantime, we have no other choice to rent in order to save money to purchase that property once we have the church established or another property, if that is the Lord’s will.
4. Pray about the COVID – 19, it keeps on increasing and as of today the 28th of March it has surpassed 834,726 cases with 8,266 deaths. It is mandatory to wear a mask everywhere you go and if you don’t, you will not be allow to come in unless if you are in open air keeping your distance.
5. Pray regarding the assembly of churches, it is the same in regards to the restrictions from the Ministry of Health.
6. As we were in the States for the whole month of April, now we are back on the Mission Field, Costa Rica. Thank you all for your prayers and support.
Our support is still at 84%. We pray and trusting in the Lord that it will go up by the time we start the ministry; even though we are very eager to start but the Lord knows what He is doing,
Safety with Travels
Protection on the road and the COVID – 19 which still lingers here in Costa Rica.
Schedule of Meetings
It will be a blessing if we can have meetings via the internet, with the Lord nothing is impossible.
Softness of Attitude
To stay close to God and focus on Him and the mission that is set before us, not on our circumstances because it very easy to get discourage at times.
- Praise the Lord for His protection and provision while we were in States.
- Praise the Lord for all the meetings we have had and for all the blessings we have received from all the churches.
- Praise the Lord for the 35 Anniversary of Bible Baptist Church Calle Blancos this month of March 2022.
- Praise the Lord for all the new members (4) and baptism (4) we had this month of March.
- Praise the Lord for everything.
Beloved Brethren, may the love of the Almighty God, the grace of our Lord and Savior Jesus, and the communion of the Holy Spirit be with you All. Amen!
