July 2020 – Prayer Letter
Dear Beloved Brethren,
Greetings and peace and love in the name of our eternal God, Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
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, His mission that He has initiated when He came on this earth and now it is our mission to continue; speaking to our hearts, answering the call that He has called us for and accepted the mission that is ahead of us to do His work according to His ways and will. We pray that His Holy Spirit will keep on guiding us in the right path of righteousness and to be obedient and faithful until the end. Praise the Lord, we are where the Lord wants us to be; as there are still obstacles to go over.
As we keep on pressing on this glorious journey, the month of July has been a continuing experience still dealing with the COVID – 19 crisis as we are still in lockdown until further notice from the Ministry of Health.
As we press on, please pray and continue to pray for the following prayer request:
- We are still waiting for the application to be approved by Immigration, it is still in the process. Immigration was supposed to be opened on July 18, 2020, unfortunately it is still close until further notice by the Ministry of Health; we have no idea when it will be open, from what I a hearing it could be as late as the end of September but only God knows.
- Our health in order to work in His vineyard. The Lord has been good with us. Protection from the COVID – 19.
- Place for the ministry, we have a location in mind; we are sending pictures of the place with this letter and a video via Face Book in this link https://www.facebook.com/Guilbauds2CostaRica/videos/274704193787511/.Continue praying for its availability. We are very anxious to start the ministry but we have to wait on the Lord, He is in control (Psalms 27:14).
4. As we wait, we truly need a miracle for our support to be at 100%; we fervently pray for this to happen. God is able, with Him nothing is impossible. We need this miracle as we are preparing to start the ministry. We pray and humbly plead for your help and what He will have you to do according to His will. All donations and funds should be sent to Macedonia World Baptist Missions (MWBM) under SHIPPING – TRAVEL ACCOUNT.
- Pray about the COVID – 19; It has gotten worse and has surpassed 18,000 cases, it is a lot for a small country; many areas have been infected with 133 deaths now, including many people at Immigration and other government offices.
- Pray regarding the assembly of churches, the Ministry of Health has pushed back the date again and has not given a new date to go ahead and start because of the continuing increase of COVID – 19 cases.
- Pray about the country to open the airports; the proposed date is August 1 but as of now no one from the USA is allowed only from Europe, United Kingdom and Canada.
Our support is still at 90%.
Safety with Travels
Protection on the road and the COVID – 19.
Schedule of Meetings
It will be a blessing if we can have meetings via the internet while we are in Costa Rica.
Softness of Attitude
To stay close to God and focus on Him and the mission that is set before us.
- Praise the Lord for the pastor’s fellowship we have every Tuesdays and Fridays; it is truly a blessing, I am getting to know many national pastors and the Lord is using me in many ways for His glory.
Thank you, as always, for your kindness, compassion and love, but most of all for your sensibility to the Holy Spirit of God who dwells in you. We are deeply grateful for your continued prayers, financial support and being behind our vision to further the Gospel of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
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!
