Canote E-Notes 01/01/12

We are kicking off Day #5 today...our final full day... on the mission field of Mexicali, Mexico and Day #1 of 2012.

It has been a glorious week where we have seen God work in and through us and our ministry teams in mighty ways. PTL! He has kept His promise to meet our needs and equip us to accomplish what He called us to accomplish. God is gonna what He's gonna do!

We have been so encouraged and blessed to partner with our fellow workers as God "blesses the nations".

We've never been with a group any more passionate and genuine in their faith. God has truly assembled a "dream team" of His people surrendered to His lead - chasing hard after His perfect plan.

We were very honored to be included in a special surprise wedding ceremony this week! Mike & Becky Letherby, here from Caledonia, Michigan, are a married couple who have spent their wedding anniversary with us here in Mexico the last several years.

Their team decided to plan an entire renewing-of-their-vows ceremony complete with music, a pastor (Chris), flowers, etc. Alex even sang them a love song mid-ceremony! The happy couple was overwhelmed with the love and effort that went into their surprise.

God has also provided a staff for this week of team ministry that is second to none. Irv & Mari Penner along with their 2 children, are missionary candidates here with us from Canada. Irv, a former pastor, has lead a daily staff devotional time.

God has used that time to bond our staff team together and help us stay focused on why we are here and who we are actually serving.

There are many stories to tell of God's handiwork but it's time to get back at it...
