Please continue to pray for preparations being made for 4 short-term Calvary Worship Center teams to go to Juarez, Mexico, and assist the pastors training with Marie & Nolan Schockey!
One team will go May 28-June 1 to do Construction on Mexican pastors' homes & churches. Another is scheduled for October 1-5 to do a Car Repair Clinic to train and support the pastors. We may also minister to the pastors' wives through crafts or first aid clinics. A High School team will also go July 21-27 to support the churches by doing games and crafts for 2 neighborhood Vacation Bible Schools! Finally, in late October, a small group will go to train the pastors in Biblical counseling.
Please pray for CWC members to hear the call to "Go into all the world and preach the Gospel", and to respond by either praying, sending, or going!
For more information on how to participate in a short-term mission trip, please email firstname.lastname@example.org!
Please continue to pray for Marie & Nolan Schockey, missionaries in Juarez, Mexico, who train Mexican men to pastor and lead through their ministry, Servant Senders.
- Praise God for continued work on the church building for the congregation Pastor Pepe' leads.
- For salvations among the police coming to devotionals led by Servant Senders.
- For Pastor Pepe' as he teaches devotionals to 3 different cartels in the federal prison.
- A couple to come alongside and learn the ministry so it will continue after Nolan and Marie retire.
Please continue to pray for Vicente Guerrero, Mexico, and Bob's ministry as he encourages and supports pastors and leaders in the Mexican church. He is teaching Systematic Theology to about 20 men and women.
- Please continue to pray for provision, travel, and safety as Bob travels to Vicente Guerrero from California every other week (a 12-hour bus ride each way).
- Please pray for Isaias Vasques and Isaias Ventres, 2 pastors who are both attending class. Pray that God will meet each Isaias exactly where he is at, and minister HIS Word to the deepest needs of each man's soul. Pray that the transformation God does in the their lives will be an encouragement and blessing to the many people they serve.
