I just want to take a moment to share some of the exciting things happening in our ministry this week.
To begin with, my time at Iglesia Bautista Resurreccion here in Miami on Sunday was just AWESOME!! Guess what? An entire family of 8 gave their lives to Christ! It was amazing! They came to the church for the first time because their Mom in Cuba had died and the pastor was doing a special prayer time for the family members. The prayer was done at the beginning of the service but the family stayed to hear me speak. Imagine the joy and amazement in my heart when I saw an entire row of hands go up one by one as I gave the invitation to receive Jesus.
Each one had tears as they came forward and so did I. You can even see how moved the pastor was in this picture above. It was an incredible sight as not only this family but 16 others also came forward for salvation! Wow, God is so good!!!
Thereís more great news! As most of you know, in January, Jeff and I began our Operation 'Beanie Baby' project for kids in Cochabamba, Bolivia next month (March 19-31). We set a goal of 1,000 beanies for this particular trip and thanks to all of you who participated, we've exceeded our goal!

Here is a picture of kids at Chapel of the Cross, my sisterís church, in Massachusetts getting all the Beanie Babies that they have collected ready for me to bring to Bolivia.
WOW!!! PRAY for favor with Customs!
Well, thatís the latest and the greatest here on the home front. We're off to Bolivia on March 19th but I'll fill you in on those details later.
United with You in His Service,
