Hi there all you Fuego Urbano supporters,
I hope you’re doing well and enjoying the holiday season. Summer is quickly approaching here so Christmas has a different feel than in the USA, but as summer begins here and all the kids get out of school, its also a festive time of year.
I’m writing to give you a quick update and ask for prayer from all of you who would like to pray for us. As I told you in my last Newsletter, which is also visible on my blog, we have been talking with the city administration to get the ok to have our Fuego Urbano worship services at the community center right across the street from the skate-park in the area we’re working in. This would be IDEAL for so many reasons, and they said there shouldn’t be a problem but that we need to get official approval from the municipality. The problem is all the city-workers went on strike just then and have been on strike for the past 1.5-2 weeks. So we are helpless waiting for this strike to end before we can get the ok to move your meetings to that location. This has been frustrating, and we’re not sure when it is going to end.
Therefore, I would like to ask all of you who would like to pray for us, to pray that God would move and bring an end to the strike so that we can get the necessary approval. Also, please pray the municipality approves our requests, because as we’ve learned, we’re never guaranteed anything until it becomes reality. We are in the process of making other arrangements up there in case the strike continues, but our hope is that it will end ASAP so we can continue with the plans we have already set up, which would really be ideal for us.
Thanks so much and blessings to you!
