November 2012 Update
Pedro & Stephanie Garcia (2002)
Dear Praying Friends,
A few days ago we purchased tickets for the final leg of our return trip to Chile - from Santiago to Iquique - and now it feels like the countdown truly begins! With just ten weeks to go, we know time will fly. We are heading into another busy season as we leave this Thursday to travel back to Michigan for Pedro's ordination exam (on Saturday) and service (on Sunday.) Returning to Delaware on Monday or Tuesday, we then depart again Friday for a weekend missionary conference in Connecticut. At month's end we anticipate some special moments with Stephanie's family over Thanksgiving; and in mid-December we drive to Florida for one final reunion with the Garcia side of the family.
Briefly, some praises and prayer requests -
PRAISE: 1. For God's protection during the recent "superstorm" Sandy. 2. For a wonderful 15th anniversary getaway built around the blessing and encouragement of a Christian marriage retreat. 3. For some increases in support bringing us ever closer to our 100% requirement. 4. For a little bit slower pace in September and October, allowing us a couple months of more "normal" family life. 5. For our two "home" churches - First Baptist of Lapeer and Faith Baptist in Wilmington, Delaware - whose ministries have been instrumental in our family's life this year.
PRAYER: 1. For Pedro as he prepares for Saturday's ordination exam. 2. For safe travels and that we might "finish strong." 3. For final support needs to be provided. 4. For God's provision of a job for our brother-in-law Dave Fisher. 5. For God's grace in the lives of family members experiencing difficult trials.
God bless each of you, and thank you for your prayers!
Pedro & Stephanie
