Mission Focus

Each week we are asking our congregation to be in prayer for one of our supported missionaries or local mission agency. This week we ask that we each bring Lisandro and Patty Restrepo to God in prayer.

Lisandro and Patty Restrepo and their son Samuel continue to serve with the Evangelical Covenant Church in Oaxaca, Mexico. This is a busy season for them, with lots of travel and many responsibilities. They report that Samuel has adjusted well.

The Restrepos appreciated the Christmas “card” we sent (thanks to all who signed the greeting) and send their thanks for our on-going prayer and financial support. They ask specifically for prayer for the following:

  • For the future leaders they are mentoring for the continuation of various ministries in Oaxaca.
  • For the women’s group that is expanding and growing as a community of disciples—women who are committed to listen, obey and serve in the name of Jesus.
  • For the group of leaders in their Ministry of the Abused and Exploited in Mexico (MAEM) in various areas of the Mexican Republic.

Let’s keep this family and their ministry in our prayers throughout the week ahead. Pray, too, that we will be found faithful in our partnership.
