Greg's September 2014 Newsletter

Greetings from Costa Mesa: I finally got a job!
I got hired at Trader Joe’s in Tustin about 2 weeks ago and am really excited and relieved to finally be able to work again. It has been a longer process then I ever anticipated and I want to thank you all for your prayers and words/emails of encouragement, as well as all of you who went out of your way to try to set me up in various job opportunities. I am excited about finally being able to move into the next stage of my life and prepare for my future here in the USA; but I want you all to know how grateful I am to you all. Thanks!

Here is Pepe & Gislaine’s September update from Chile:

“Grace and peace brothers and sisters; we greet you in the love of the Lord from La Serena, Chile. In September we celebrate our “fiestas patrias” (literally “country parties” where they celebrate their Independence from Spain on Sep 18th: imagine our July 4th stretched out for the whole month of July and you start to get the picture), and it has been a month of good news and encouragement. The small-group gathering in Las Compañías has already started producing fruit. The gathering at Henry’s house has turned out to be a blessing because every Friday his whole family gathers there and every week we have some new visitor. They are always really happy when we arrive and despite their economic needs, they greet us with sopaipillas (typical Chilean food) and empanadas which they make themselves. 

Our gatherings are being done in the living room of Henry’s house. They live in very humble but welcoming conditions, and last weekend I offered to paint the walls of Henry’s house as a way of thanking them. They we really happy since it had been a dream of theirs to paint the walls; and through all this we were able to honor their family and show the love of God with our actions.

Another great piece of news was that a neighbor found out about our gatherings and asked if we could visit her and pray for her daughter, who was suffering from inflation and indigestion of her stomach and intestines. On the first Friday of last month, we visited her to pray and share the word of the Lord, and after 2 weeks she was really grateful because her daughter’s health improved considerably after we prayed for her. Now she is going to participate in a new women’s group that will start next month in that community.

This month the country’s children were on vacation for a week and we took advantage of the opportunity to have our friend Wilson visit us. Wilson works with Chile’s national team of soccer and he blessed us with a presentation of his collection of original World-Cup jerseys from players from all over the world. He also shared his testimony and how he came to faith; and it was the first point of contact in the community of Tierras Blancas where we hope to start a new small-group of Fuego Urbano in the future.

As a family we are more stable, after the death of Gislaine’s brother. We ask for your prayer and covering for us and the families that are being reached by the gospel of Christ. We ask you to continue supporting our work as Fuego Urbano Church, as it is a time of new challenges but we keep trusting in God and in the support of your prayers and finances. If you would like to know more about our activities in Chile with Fuego Urano, please visit our Blog:   or write us at: ,

A big hug in Christ,
Jose, Gislaine, Gabriel, Gean”
