Dear Family and Friends,
My family and I hope you all had a great Christmas! God has been faithful towards my family and I (Jacob). This year was exciting! God provided $35,000 for us to purchase our land and property, New Haven Baptist Church got started, we experienced our first VBS on the Quechan Reservation, began Bible studies with the Teen boys and men, and have seen God work in great ways! We have seen several Natives come to Christ, a teenage boy was saved and called to preach, we have had the opportunity to baptize 2 teenagers, and we have had up to 30 people in attendance. To God be the glory! On the Cocopah Reservation, my family and I are continuing assisting the church with Sunday nights and Wednesday night services. On Wednesdays, my wife and I have the opportunity to run the Cocopah Teens for Christ Class. A lot of the teens have been so neglected by family that a lot of times they wonder if God even exists. We are going through a series called “Be All You Can Be” (Luke 9:23). I go through Bible characters who were used by God and teach them what each characters had to do in order to be used by God. We had several come to Christ this year! Please keep these teens in your prayers! They have no one to care for them.
This year has been exciting and with all the things God is doing, we know Satan is working. Continue to pray for us as we minister to the reservations and nearby areas!
As many of you know, my wife contracted Covid-19 in the middle of October. Although she still struggles with her lungs due to “post Covid syndrome,” God has been good and spared and preserved all 3 of us! We thank you for the prayers from many of you on our behalf!
God has been so good to us! We need to show our thankfulness by serving Him through our local church.
Here are a few goals we have for 2022
* We keep pressing forward in getting the gospel to the Cocopah and Quechan reservations.
* Try to get into the Quechan school.
* Minister more to the teenagers.
* Try to get fully supported.
If you have any questions, feel free to email me back.
