Earlier in August, I was with Leonel Chavez (Guasave, Sinaloa; commended from W. Phoenix in 2014) in meetings in the town of Parral, Chihuahua. The closest assembly is 2 1/2 hours away in the capital. There are a few who profess. I counted some 30 unsaved relatives and contacts of Leonel. We saw more happen at the children's level, although some unsaved adults came, including one 64 yr old man each night. A 12-year-old Catholic girl said she got saved while Leonel was speaking on John 3:14,15 and the serpent lifted up. It was nice to hear her clarity and simplicity.

One Sunday, we drove to Vergel, about 2 hrs west of Parral, to visit the few believers there; again, mostly relatives of Leonel. In another town, Matamoros, about 30 mins south of Parral, we met a new family. They are contacts through the work among Mexican workers in Grand Bend, ON area where Phil Lampkin and Michael Rodgers take the man of the house to hear the gospel.

His family showed a keen interest without a lot of clutter of Catholicism or evangelicalism. Sunday, Leonel and I spent with the assembly in Chihuahua, before heading to our respective homes on Monday last week. Here in Iguala (home), Dr. Sandy Higgins gave a series on divine order. The meetings were well attended by both saved and unsaved alike. He also gave one night in Oacalco, an outreach work carried on by Duncan Beckett and others for over four yrs. He and I had a recent series there in July, thankful for a young woman who professed salvation in the third week.

Your earnest prayers are much appreciated.
