The Canote E-Notes 10/26/08

Greetings and Happy Sunday to you!

It's another busy Sunday for the Canote family. We're headed south to the Ashland Baptist Church located in beautiful downtown Ashland, MO. This is a return visit for us so we're looking forward to seeing some familiar faces. And, our former Director of Missions and good friend, Bro. George Roach is the Interim Pastor there.

I'm preaching again tonight at Sturgeon Baptist Church located in beautiful downtown Sturgeon, MO... :) I'm really enjoying this season of preaching for me. I'll be speaking about spending too much time hanging out too close to the edge.

Susan and I will driving to Pittsburgh, PA on Thursday to represent YUGO in a national youth workers conference. Our goal is to connect with some youth leaders looking for a short-term mission opportunity for their group. Please pray for those connections to happen and please continue praying for our goal of "100 teams in Mexico in 2009."

Thank you for your prayers and support. We're countin' on it.

God Bless You and have a GREAT week!

In His service,

The Canote E-Notes 10/20/08

We've enjoyed several ministry engagements over the last couple of weeks including a 3-hour drive to Iowa and a 15-minute drive just down the road. A local church is praying about possibly sending a team to join us in Acuña next summer. Woo hoo! Would you join them in praying for God's blessing for a team from their church to join us on the mission field in Mexico?

We very much count on and appreciate your prayers and support and we thank God for you every day! We'll be needing to make some big decisions over the next few weeks regarding finances and our future. It's comforting to know so many come along beside us in prayer.

God Bless You!

The Canote E-Notes 10/07/08

You may have seen an email I sent out a few weeks ago about a specific ministry prayer request for YUGO Ministries. As one of the primary mobilizers for YUGO, I have taken responsibility for setting a team recruitment goal. I have felt led over the last couple of months to pray specifically. So I have been doing that myself and am asking others to pray specifically as well. I'm praying for 100 teams to join us at one of our summer envangelism outreaches in 2009 in either Acuna, Tijuana, or Mexicali, Mexico.

Imagine, if you will, the ripple effect of increasing the number of teams who join us on the mission field in Mexico. Hundreds or even thousands more would come to know Christ as a result. Untold seeds would be planted for future decisions for Christ. Hundreds or even thousands of North American youth and adults would go home as experienced ministry leaders creating a legacy of change for generations to come.

If you haven't already done so, would you please consider praying regularly for this goal? Also, would you please consider asking your church and/or others to join us in praying for our goal of "100 in 2009"?

Thank you and God Bless You!

The Canote E-Notes 10/04/08

Busy weekend ahead....we'll be sharing some gospel bluegrass and testimony tonight at the Clark Christian Church in Clark, MO. We'll do that again tomorrow morning at a school fundraiser in Macon, MO. And then I will be preaching again tomorrow night at Sturgeon Baptist Church in Sturgeon, MO.

Please keep us in your prayers. Our hope is that God would continue to use us as He sees fit and that we'll get out of the way so He can do that.

It occurred to me that some of our friends and family might not be aware of YUGO's "Project Joy" ministry in Mexico. Some of our Acuna teams have participated in year's past and will be again this year. They have found it to be a very rewarding experience.

Project Joy is a unique Christmas ministry that invites individuals of all ages to give gift-filled shoeboxes to poor children in Mexico. We invite you to join us by providing shoebox gifts to the children of Mexico. Many of the children who receive these gifts will not be receiving any other gifts to celebrate the birth of Christ this year. They are presented during a celebration and "fiesta" atmosphere including a presentation of the gospel.

This project makes for a great Sunday school, church or family project!

If you're interested, please feel free to contact me for more info or you can go directly to YUGO's website:
