New Church Building

We started off 2017 by moving into a new building for our main services on Sundays and Wednesday nights. It is located on the main street of town, right next to the market. Our hope was more people would be able to come to church from out of town, because Sunday is market day. The response from the locals has been great. We have seen a increase in attendance, averaging around 60 people on Sundays.


Being in the center of town, there are a lot of people who pass by the church. We have been praying that people would see the church sign and God would draw them in. We have already seen fruit from these prayers! There have been multiple families who didn’t know anyone, but seeing the sign, entered, heard the message, and decided to follow Jesus. They have been faithful in returning every week as well!

Our Year in Review

2016 in Review

2016 was a year that God moved in ways we have personally never seen before. Here is a very quick recap:

  • -9 people were baptized in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit
  • -7 new villages were opened up
  • -15 healings and miracles

However, our ministry is not all about numbers. (more…)

Return To Mexico

Update on Mary Beth

About one month ago we sent out an email saying that we were returning to America because the doctors in Mexico couldn’t figure out what was going on with Mary Beth. (If you didn’t read that email, she had been sick for a while, and then took a turn for the worse the month of August.) Well, after a 5 day stay at Vanderbilit hospital, after several doctors took turns examining her, after CT scans, a lumbar puncture, colonoscopy, and 20-30 vials of blood taken from her for testing, the doctors there couldn’t figure out the problem either! They were extremely thorough, but just weren’t able to identify what she had. They ended up putting her on Flagyl, and she started feeling better on the second day of taking it! Thank you everyone for praying!

Return to Mexico

 After allowing Mary Beth to rest for a couple weeks, we decided that it was time to head back to the mission field. This also gave us time to make sure there wouldn’t a relapse. We are hoping and praying that nothing else happens that would make it necessary for us to leave the work here again for a while. We ask that you be praying for that as well.

  • Pray that Mary Beth can have a complete recovery.
  • Pray that our whole family will have excellent health.
  • Pray for the church here, that God will touch and encourage the believers.
  • Pray also for continual growth for the church, that new people will come to know Christ everyday.

We are so grateful for you. We couldn’t be here without the other parts of the body of Christ sending us, so thank you!

Jeff, Mary Beth, + Tybee Joy 

Mary Beth is sick, We’re returning to the States.

July Update

Hey everyone!

The month of July was a busy one, and yet we didn’t see a lot of fruit. We didn’t see anyone get saved. We didn’t see anyone get healed. It’s easy to get discouraged when you don’t see results that you can see and measure.

But at one house service, a man named Julian gave us some words of encouragement. He told us, “What you’re doing is working, because here I am.” Jeff helped lead this man to Christ nearly three years ago along with two other missionaries. After he got saved they would go back every single week to disciple him and teach him more about the Bible. Now he is a strong believer who is rock solid in his faith!

This was a reminder that even though at times we can’t see the results, that doesn’t mean that they aren’t happening! We have to believe that change is always taking place on the inside.

Prayer Request

Please pray for healing for Mary Beth, as she continues to be troubled with health problems. She has low energy, and achy body, and her stomach is constantly having issues.

Vacation!

At the end of the month we were able to go on a week long cruise vacation with many of Mary Beth’s family. (24 people total!) This was made possible because her parents very generously covered the entire trip! It was a fun and special time! This was Tybee Joy’s first vacation. (Too bad she won’t be able to remember, because we probably won’t get to do something like that again!)
