Canote E-Notes 12/24/14

"I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus."
Philippians 3:14 NIV

All of the last minute details and logistics for our next big trip are coming together.  We leave Christmas Day for another week of hosting Team Ministry Evangelism in Acuña, Mexico and are nearly overwhelmed with excitement!

As one might expect, there are a million details which must fall into place just right for something like this.  However, our HOPE is in Jesus!  We choose to #PressOn, trusting in our Creator to take care of business!

We have had and will continue to expect the usual "fiery darts" tossed our way and will continue to trust God. 

We did have an extra big hurdle plop in our laps yesterday.  Please pray with us for God's Providence and an opportunity to partner with us for a Special Project.  We had hoped to squeeze out another Mexico trip and possibly a few more months from the tires on our 15-passenger van.  Unfortunately, that plan didn't work out.  We had to put $750 into new tires yesterday!

This is no hill for climbers...and be assured, we are climbers.  If you feel God leading you to partner with us on this Special Project opportunity, please trust His leading. We will #PressOn and trust God either way to meet our needs.

God bless you & Merry Christmas!

Thank you for your prayers and support!

Canote E-Notes 12/16/14

It is time once again for us to pack up that cargo trailer with luggage and supplies and to load up the Casa Canote Express and head south!  

We know there are a bunch of folks in Acuña, Mexico right now who need to know about the Savior, Jesus Christ!  Praise God He is still in the business of miracles and of rescuing folks from the darkness of this lost world!

We know there is another bunch of folks, some from Michigan and some from Missouri, 64 of them to be exact, who have planned, prepared, and sacrificed to come along side us and join us on the mission field.  We are so excited for this opportunity they have to strengthen their faith by simply telling the story of how Jesus has impacted their lives.

Adding in the 15 members of our staff host team makes 79 of us total for another week of Team Ministry Evangelism in Mexico.  We will be there to support and help meet the needs of the local church.  God designed and orchestrated our strategic alliance and partnership with Pastor David Huerta, his family, and the ministry of the Aviva-Kairos Church to help us do just that.

Please keep us in your prayers!  We are counting on it.

Prayer Points
  • Host Team (the Canote family)
    • Travel, logistics, health, vehicle stamina, etc.
  • Ministry Teams
    • Cornerstone United Methodist Church - Caledonia, Michigan
    • Unity Baptist Church - Fayette, Missouri
  • Aviva-Kairos Church
  • and most importantly those who will be ministered to during our week in Acuña.

Merry Christmas!
