Dear Praying Friends,
Thank you so much for your prayers for the Saturday luncheon! Gerson kept the boys all day for me, so in the morning I was able to go to a local Barnes and Nobles bookstore, drink some coffee, and spend some much-needed time in prayer and preparation. The Lord helped me as I shared with the group about Him being our I AM. It was a wonderful reminder to me, as well. He IS all I need. He IS the same yesterday, today, and forever. Praise His Name! Thank you for praying. It was a blessed time.
Gerson will be preaching (in the same church where I spoke on Saturday) on September 4th. Please be in prayer for him as he prepares the message.
These are super exciting times as we see the Lord opening doors for ministry. In another week or so, Gerson will begin teaching PE once again at Taylor Christian School. He is also finishing up the soccer field. We are thankful the Lord has provided the last amount of money needed to put up the poles and netting around the field to keep stray soccer balls from leaving the property. Praise the Lord for HIS provision! Gerson hopes to finish up the soccer field project in the next few weeks. One the sod is healthy and has deep roots, he will be able to begin using the soccer field for ministry. Please continue to pray for rain. The sod needs lots of water at this time and it is time-consuming and costly to maintain the irrigation needed to keep the sod from dying. Many of the neighbors have stopped by to talk to Gerson about the soccer field. They are anxious to use it to play soccer! We are anxious to tell them about the Lord.
There are other things "in the works," but I'll leave those for another post as we finalize the details. We are thrilled the Lord is working and opening doors for us to reach the community. Thanks for being a part of our team and for keeping us before the throne through your prayers.
In His Grip,
The Tejeda Family
