Prayer letter - February 2015

It’s Monday morning, and I’m wondering where to start to brag on the Lord…let’s see. The most wonderful blessing He gives to me is found in Lamentations 3:22, 23: It is of the Lord's mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.” “Thank you, Lord, for a brand new week, and another chance to try to please You better than I did last week.”

How do I sum up His blessings to me and my ministry in few words, so as not to take up too much of your time? I’ll do my best.

It was an honor to be able to participate in my daughter, Ruthie Miller, and her husband, Steve’s first Ladies’ Christmas Banquet in QuerĂ©taro, on December 4 of last year. There were two ladies saved, and it was a blessing to have had as their special guest the judge (magistrate) of the Supreme Court, and her husband. She was visibly touched, as I asked her to come up and say a few words. I told her I would pray for her every morning. It just happened to be her birthday, and the ladies from the church sang “Happy Birthday” to her…actually a birthday hymn we sing in our churches here. During the mealshe asked me if I actually would pray for her every morning.  I assured her I would, and I do.

Do you remember my mentioning our new special guests at our banquet here last November? They were the eleven policewomen who attended. On January 28, five ladies from the police force who had just finished their night shift, went home and showered, and attended our first monthly Prayer Breakfast of the year. Estela was saved at our Banquet, and she told me during breakfast that she prays with her group before they go out. Estela’s baby is due in a few months. 

In 2010 for the first time in the history of our city, we had a lady mayor. She was also present that morning. She raised her hand for Salvation when I gave the invitation, but she couldn’t be convinced that she could know for sure that she would go to Heaven when she dies. Please pray for the Holy Spirit to work in her heart. 

I never take for granted the invitations my sons and sons in law extend to me to teach the ladies in their churches. On December 28, I enjoyed teaching the ladies’ Sunday school class in Ixtapa, where Ulises and my daughter, Elizabeth serve.

What has the Lord done for you that makes you want to serve Him better this year than you did in 2014? Well, let’s get busy and do it!
