Greetings from Chihuahua Mexico!!
We thank the Lord for your prayers and partnership with us. We’re sure you have heard ALOT about the swine flu here in Mexico. We want to let you know that we are all fine. There are no official cases of the flu here in Chihuahua. Still, all schools are closed. Many churches have suspended services and meetings. Sports events are canceled as are ALL gatherings of larger groups of people. Today is a holiday and the streets are deserted. We see MANY people wearing medical masks. It is a strange feeling but we are thankful that the government is attempting to contain this flu BEFORE it is widespread.
Please continue to pray for us here and we will keep you updated.
Interestingly, we have a work team/ mission group here from Massachusetts and New York. At first there was concern that they might not be able to leave but all seems well and they are scheduled to leave Saturday morning. They have been a huge blessing and encouragement to us this week.
“ The Lord is my strength and shield; my heart trusts in him and I am helped. My heart leaps for joy and I will give thanks to him in song.” Psalm 28:7
