Update 4-16

Thank you for covering us in prayer as we've traveled so much the past month. 

We had a wonderful time at the Ethnic Worker's Summit in Phoenix.  It was a good time of fellowship with other AMF Missionaries, and other people who are working in Ethnic Ministry here in the US.  

We also had a good time at AMF's camping conference in Wellfleet, NE.  We always get so many good ideas from other camp directors when we attend these meetings.

We returned home to have a couple more cajun boil fundraisers (our last one will be this Friday Night.)  We have much to do in the next month and a half to prepare for IMPACT (VBS ministry) and for Camp.  We are still trying to finalize camp speakers and such.  Please be praying for these ministries coming up this summer.

We will be wrapping up Rachel's Kiowa Ladies Bible Study for the year, as well as finishing up Curtis' preaching classes, and wrapping up our UIM Hispanic Kids Bible Club in the next weeks to come as we focus on our summer ministries.

Prayer Requests:
~ We will get our speakers all finalized for camp.
~ That we will find the needed staff for camp this summer.  It looks like Rachel will be the head cook this year, so that means we'll have to find childcare for Noah and Hannah this summer.
~ It looks like Curtis will be joining the Regional Committee for the Ethnic Worker's Summit which will be held in Denver in 2011.  We are very excited about this, but there is a lot of work to be done so the conference will be a success in Denver.
~ We have gotten a little behind in our IMPACT training for various reasons, which will place a little bit of pressure on the young people we're training to have ample time to learn all their Bible stories and everything.  Please be praying that God will change these young people's lives and they will see what kind of Impact they might make for the Kingdom of Christ here in NE Colorado.
~ We will need to begin working on locations for our Vacation Bible Schools this summer.  It looks like we might 20+ VBS again this year.  Pray that God will lead us to communities that need Him the most.  Pray for open doors and open hearts.
~ It appears that we have lost about $400 a month in support due to multiple reasons.  Please be praying that people might be touched to join our financial team and help us reach people in NE Colorado for Christ.  

Thank you so much for all your prayers!  We appreciate you!
