Everyone, Hope this email finds you all doing well. It’s hard to believe that 10 Weeks have already gone by, it seems as though we just got to Missouri yesterday. Despite a busy schedule we have been really blessed by the staff and students at the Children’s Ministries Institute. We have made some good friends and have been encouraged by their faith. It is a joy to see so many people step out in faith and trust the Lord to provide for the ministry to which the Lord has called them. Like us they too are trusting God to provide for their financial needs as they go back to their respective areas, here in the United States, Europe, Canada and the Caribbean.
I only have 2 more weeks and I will have completed my training on November 11th . Thank you all so very much for your continued financial support, it has allowed us to get through training and prepare for the ministry. We have reached 20% our support, so still 80% left. We cannot fully focus on developing the ministry in Hawaii until we have acquired 100% of our support, so please pray for us so that we can complete this assignment as soon as possible. Also, I urge you to consider becoming part of our ministry team in reaching the children for the Lord. We have so many missionaries and ministries today that are reaching out to adults and teens which is great. However, children are being neglected.
Through the ministry of Child Evangelism Fellowship, we have been freely given the opportunity to share the Gospel in public schools. What a great opportunity! In 2001 the Supreme Court ruled in favor of Child Evangelism Fellowship to have Good News Clubs in Schools. I have had the privilege of actually teaching kids in the public Schools here in Missouri for the past month and it has been a blessing to share the gospel with the children. There are five who have made decisions for Christ and are growing in their faith.
If you are aware of anyone who would be willing to support us in our ministry we would love a referral so that we can advance our ministry. You are in our prayers and looking forward to seeing you guys soon.
Also as of November 4th 2011, please send any mail to our address in Virginia. I mentioned in a previous email it was the 18th , that date was changed.
The Lord bless you and keep you and cause His face to shine upon you.
In His Service,
Ricardo & Kristin
