GREG, PEPE & GISLAINE'S APRIL 2014 NEWSLETTER
hope this Newsletter finds you well. I (Greg) am still looking for ministry
positions so please keep your eyes and ears open for me, and please read below
to hear more about Pepe & Gislaine in CALIFORNIA with Fuego Urbano. Chile
FIRST: WILL YOU CONSIDER SUPPORTING PEPE & GISLAINE FINANCIALLY FOR 10 MORE MONTHS, UNTIL FEB 2015? After talking with Pepe & Gislaine, we agreed that the best thing we could hope for from our supporters at this point, is to continue supporting them and their work with Fuego Urbano until February, 2015, when Pepe could then look for a job as a teacher (which is what he studied and did before). Since the school years there begin in March, it would be almost impossible for him to find a job at this time of year. But if we could get as many of our supporters as are able, to continue supporting them until February 2015, then Pepe could find a job teaching and we would then shut down the economic support from you all. Would you prayerfully consider supporting them until this February so they can continue with the ministry of Fuego Urbano and not be left without enough income in the meantime?
SECOND: BELOW I TRANSLATED WHAT PEPE & GISLAINE WROTE THIS MONTH:
“We want to begin this report by thanking you all for your commitment in helping to start Fuego Urbano in
Northern Chile. The work in is not easy. It is a
difficult country, and even more so in the north where it is very dry, has a
strong mystic background, and a Catholic syncretism (Catholic beliefs mixed
with indigenous beliefs) that dominates the area. It is a region that has a
large number of historic Catholic churches and where they have the
second-largest festival of devotion to the virgin Mary in all of Chile , where some 60,000 people
gather each year. Chile
However we have successes like establishing our work with sports & basketball that continues firm after all these years, where we are beginning a bible-study after the training times, and handing out bibles and weekly devotionals that are applied to life and sports. Soon we will also begin meeting in the houses of the people involved as well.
We know that it is difficult for you to support us indefinitely without knowing us personally, so we are asking if you would support us financially until February, 2015, which is which is when I (Pepe) could look for a job as a P.E. Teacher (which is my profession). It is hard to find work this far into the school-year (which begins in March). We will however, continue reporting to you all about our work and ministry like we have always done up until now.
If you would like to contact us, receive more information, or visit us, you can write us at:

Just go to the right side of my Blog (http://greghaugh.blogspot.com) where it says ‘Recurring Donation’ and adjust drop-down menu to the amount you’d like to give each month; then click ‘Subscribe’ and it will take you through the process.
