Canote E-Notes 06/14/10

Dear Friends & Family,
Greetings in the matchless name of Jesus Christ our Savior!

For starters, no you didn't get bumped off the "Canote E-Notes" list. I just haven't sent one in quite some time. We have maintained the monthly prayer letters but have fallen short on our commitment to keep you informed and updated regarding our ministry on a more frequent basis. Your friendship, support, and prayers are priceless and we are so very thankful, honored, and blessed to consider you part of our ministry support team. God bless you! Your reward is stored up in heaven pending your arrival. Praise the Lord!

If life in full-time ministry is anything, it is certainly never boring. God continues to stretch us and use us according to His perfect will. It's always amazing to see how God works things out; His plans and timing are ALWAYS the best. It's awesome to look back and see how He has moved things into place over time to accomplish His ministry - often in ways we never even considered. Praise the Lord!

We are trusting Him and His plans with a new ministry opportunity. On Sunday, June 6, I was elected the Interim Pastor of our home church, Harrisburg Baptist Church. Aside from a strong leading from the Lord to make myself available, the vote was unanimous, providing additional confirmation God was right in the middle of the plan. It is a bi-vocational position making it a perfect match for the ministry work I do with YUGO Ministries. I am very excited about serving in this new role and about the vision for ministry I believe God has given me for our home church.

Aside from making multiple trips per year to serve alongside our YUGO missionaries who live in Mexico, my primary role with YUGO is to serve as a mission mobilizer. My work includes developing relationships with churches and ministry leaders. The goal is that YUGO Ministries and our missionaries living in Mexico can help these churches maximize their ministry resources and efforts to most efficiently impact the world for Jesus. The result is that the people of Mexico come to a saving knowledge of Jesus. I also built and maintain the YUGO website along with assisting with various other marketing efforts for YUGO. None of that has changed. I will continue to work in that capacity. If anything, this new ministry plan for our family has given me a renewed vision and refreshed outlook on God's plans for working in and through us for His Glory.

Thank you for your prayers!

God Bless You!
