Maranatha Life, like any ministry is only as effective as the prayer support
that we have. We earnestly seek your prayer support in agreeing with
us for God to provide the following:
CURRENT NEEDS - (for the ministry we are involved in now):
Volunteer workers to co-labor with us in the ministry. More than anything,
we need secretarial help, and someone to help with vehicle maintenance. There
are lots of retired people living in the area who could help, we just
need God to bring is a few of them.
The prayer movement we are working on in Reynosa, Mexico.
Espcially for God to move on
the hearts of more of the the pastors and believers of
Reynosa to become involved in this
work. Click here for more
information on this work.
Ongoing financial provision. We can only continue to do what God has
provided the money for us to do. We believe that God is directing our
steps, and that He will provide for all that He has directed. Please
agree with us for God's abundant provision for the work.
Please pray for the pastors who are our spiritual children.

FUTURE NEEDS - (for new ministry expansion):
Video equipment for the television ministry institute. We basically need
everything for a television studio, so that we can videotape and edit
the programs. Click here for more information
on this work.
ONGOING NEEDS - (for the continued work of this ministry):
Continued open doors for ministry. One of the basic principles that
God has given us for this ministry is that we aren't allowed to ask to minister
anywhere. We must trust God to open doors for us to minister. Most
of the time, this happens through our following God's direction on what churches
to go to. He then opens the door for us to minister. At other
times, pastors contact us to ask us to minister at their church.
God to minister to our family as we minister to others. One of the
mistakes that many people in ministry make is to put the ministry before
the family, thus harming the family. We desire for God's help in keeping
things in proper order.
For God to put our books, especially the language books into the hands of
people who need them. We are believing for Bible schools to use our
language books to train people who are preparing for the missions field.
Since we are a ministry, and not a sales organization, we put our effort
into ministering, not selling. We need divine connections with
the people who need our materials.
ANSWERED PRAYER REQUESTS
A vehicle we can use for minitering in Mexico. We are ministering in
several churches along the border, but bringing our motorhome back and forth
is difficult. We also need this for ministry deeper into Mexico, in
places where the motorhome can't go. God has answered
this prayer request and given us a custom van
A replacement for our tape duplicator, mixer, and cassette deck. Recently,
our trailer was broken into, and this equipment was stolen. However, the
Word of God says that the devil must repay seven times what he steals. We
are believing to receive much better than we lost.
Praise Report!!! Part of this has been answered,
as God has had a brother give us a mixer, and has provided the funds for
us to buy a new cassette deck!!! We also were able to buy another
God to provide people for assistance with translations. Because of
the international nature of our ministry, God has directed us to translate
some of our materials into other languages, specifically Spanish. We
also need to produce language curriculums in other languages. Please
agree with us that God will send us people to assist in this work.
We now have 12 different people who are helping
with translation of books and articles for the web site.
New computers. We are still using Pentium II computers. While that may not
seem so old to some people, with the amount of work we
are doing on them, we are in desperate need of upgrading. We've been able to replace all our computers with new Pentium 4s. Praise God for His provision!
