March 2023 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, no matter what. 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.
- Our health in order to continue and work in His vineyard.
- Pray for the growth of the Church – Reaching for Jesus Christ Baptist Church in Santa Ana, Rio Oro, as we are going to physically start this Sunday April 2nd, 2023.
- Pray for a local pastor and his name is Esteban Rivera with his wife Laura and two young children; they are willing to work with us.
- Provision for the rest of the needs for the church.
- Pray for available and dedicated laborers to come and be part of the church so we can form an association; we need ten members including my wife and I before we do.
4. Provision for another church and property in Ciudad Colon – Mora where we will have our principal buildings for Baptist College & Theological Seminary.
We are sustaining an 83% support by the grace of God. By faith we have started this journey, by faith we are trusting in Him for His provision and by faith we will keep on serving Him as we do His work according to His will.
Safety with Travels
Safety as we traveled in Costa Rica. Protection on the road as we traveled to churches, especially in the mountains.
Schedule of Meetings
With God nothing is impossible. He knows the churches that will support us so we can reach the goal.
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 and Satan, as always, wants to put his nose in God’s business.
- Praise the Lord for His continued protection and provision as we serve Him.
- Praise the Lord for Pastor Roberto of Bible Baptist Church of Escazú for his continued help with his congregation.
- Praise the Lord for the place that we have found in order to start the ministry.
- Praise the Lord that a national pastor is willing to work with us as we have mentioned above.
- Praise the Lord for the knowledge that He has given us in order to start this church and also for the patience in waiting for His perfect time.
My Beloved Brethren, we are extremely excited to see what God is going to do with us and the people of Costa Rica.
Beloved Brethren, may the Love of the Almighty God, the grace of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, and the communion of the Holy Spirit be with you All. Amen!
Brother Jean-Claude & Sister Matilde Guilbaud
Reach the World, Reach for Christ; Under His Wings Reaching the World for His Glory!
