Greg's July 2014 Newsletter

Greetings from Costa Mesa: I hope you are enjoying the summer. I am still looking for jobs and would appreciate your prayers regarding that. Please read below to see what Pepe & Gislaine have been up to this July:

Here is what Pepe & Gislaine wrote this month from Chile:

“Grace and peace to you, friends; we greet you from our little corner of South America. It has been a month filled with blessings and lots of ministerial activity. Our son Gabriel (8 years old) just finished his winter vacation. It was a great time to share as a family. We were able to climb Cerro Grande walking with the whole family and it was beautiful to be able to enjoy God’s creation. In our ministry, as we told you in our previous letter, we are having our meetings in our house because as you know, we focus on people who normally would not go inside a church. We have been sharing quality time with the families, brothers and sisters of the church, and that has been a big blessing. In Chile, as in many areas of the world, there is a lot of rejection and judgment towards any religious authority figure, due in large part to the sexual abuse cases of the Catholic Fathers and unfortunately, evangelical churches that don’t give a good testimony, which the newspapers always report. That’s why we are intensifying our work face-to-face. People believe in God but they are skeptic of religious systems. This has presented us with the big challenge of how to give someone the message in ways that are more and more relevant, clean, and filled with the love of Christ. We just received word that a woman wanted us to visit her in her house because she said her house was “spiritually weighed down,” and that some weird things had happened there: sounds, doors shutting, etc. We were able to visit her and she received us very happily. We were able to share the gospel of Jesus with her and pray for her and her family (see photo). This month we began again with our bible study “Profundo” in Las Compañías, in Henry’s house, and the group is growing every Friday.

The children’s ministry of the church is called “Fuegitos,” which takes place every Sunday and has a weekly lesson applied to everyday life. We pray that this work will continue growing and that the gospel and love of Jesus will reach many more children.

We hope you will keep supporting our work with Fuego Urbano. It is time of new challenges but we keep trusting in God, in the support of your prayers, and in your financial support. If you would like to know more about our activities with Fuego Urbano in Chile, please visit our new blog:   or write us at:
