Canote E-Notes 09/28/10

Greetings & Salutations!
It's been an exciting last few weeks around the Canote house! We have had a lot going on at church, plenty of school related activity - including elementary, jr. high, high school, AND college!, along with our usual adventures in missions with Mexico and YUGO. You know...the usual Canote Family Circus!

I just returned from spending a couple of days in Atlanta, GA touring the Operation Mobilization (OM) USA headquarters and spending time with their leadership team. One of our board members at YUGO, Bill Drake, is also an OM missionary himself. He and his lovely bride, Teri, hosted me along with another YUGO board member, Ray Schwartz. OM has missionaries serving world-wide in over 100 countries and on multiple mission cruise ships which travel port to port taking the Good News of Jesus to the world. We went to learn and learn we did! It was an exciting trip. I came away refreshed and with a renewed vision for the future of YUGO Ministries and how God can and will work in and through the Canote family to accomplish His big ole plan! And I'm very excited about putting some new ideas to work ASAP!

I am currently coordinating the logistics for directing and speaking for the Mexicali, Mexico New Year's Outreach. The boys and I have been a part of this outreach now for several years. They will be joining me to lead worship, set-up, tear-down, etc. We have a team of 40 high school students and 15 college students coming to minister with us from Michigan this year - so far.

Thank you so much for your friendship, prayers, and financial support! You have an important role on our ministry team just by your presence in our lives. And it's awesome to see how God uses each of you to accomplish His will.

God Bless YOU!
