Thank you for your response!

So many of you responded...several by comment and even more by email...wanting to pray this coming year for a specific person in our church here. I'm so very excited knowing that the Lord will hear each and every prayer. In fact, we've had so many respond that I may be able to assign a couple of people to each person. How wonderful to think that each person in our church could have a couple of prayer warriors each standing beside them as they grow in the Lord and share Him with others!
Over the next week, I will be compiling the list/assigning names, making sure I have a current picture to send, and putting together the information/prayer requests for each one. Each year, during Christmas break, I enjoy working on a special project that I wouldn't have time for during our normal schedule, and I'm so excited the Lord laid this on my heart for this year.
So if you haven't already contacted us and you want to be a part of this, I ask that you let us know by the end of this week. My goal is have the emails ready to send to you all by early next week.
A few of you mentioned wanting to be given the birthdays of those for whom you will be praying, and since I am needing to update our church birthday list/calendar for the new year, it will be no problem to include those (although there are some older people and a few children who do not know their birthdays).
A few also mentioned being pen-pals with a child. I think it would be wonderful if you feel led to write a note of encouragement to the person for whom you are praying anytime. Try out any/all Spanish you know...they would love it. And provided you don't write a lenghthy epistle :), I wouldn't mind translating short notes outloud which are written in English. You should send the notes to our address which is located on the lower right hand side bar (making sure you put our name on the address but also include somewhere on the envelope the name of the person to whom it is for) and we'd be happy to deliver them.
But as far as another child or adult writing back, I would not expect that. To mail a letter from here to the USA would cost over a dollar which is quite a lot of money to the people here (the average wage is $10-12/day). And writing isn't something they do a lot of here, but maybe somebody will surprise you and write ??? :)
If you are going to write, we ask that you do so through regular mail and not email. Often times, our printer is out of ink, so we aren't always able to print. :)
Finally, some have asked about getting updates on the person for whom they are praying. I would love to be able to send each one of you regular updates, but I don't want to commit to doing something I may not have the time to do. Daniel thought this summer would be a good time to send out updates, so that's a possibility. But I do want to post more specifically on the ministry here this year as the Lord has given us such a love and burden for these souls. And as I post, you very well may see a picture and/or update on the person for whom you are praying, so watch for those :)
The burden the Lord laid on my heart is prayer. I've been deeply convicted myself on the amount of time I spend on my knees. And also, we so covet prayer for the people here. And from that, the idea of asking you all to pray for somebody specific came.
May the Lord work through the prayers of His people!

1 Timothy 2:1- I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men.

Ephesians 6:18- Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints.

1 John 5:14- And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us.

Psalms 34:15- The eyes of the LORD are upon the righteous, and his ears are open unto their cry.


  1. We would be honored to pray too and send in a letter (if possible) with the little Spanish we know.

    We have 3 sons, ages 8,6, and 4 and a daughter, age 18 mos.

  3. Jaynee,

    our whole family would love to be a part of this! My husband and I, and our 2 older kids at least...Lily (7) and Ian(5). And since we speak spanish it would be fun to have penpals for the kids somewhere else in mexico, because all of their penpals are in the states! You could give us a family, or individuals, or however you feel led. THanks so much!

  4. Dearest Jaynee,
    You can count us in too! : ) What a great way to help us grow in the Lord too!! : )

  5. Oops!
    Do you need our e-mail? : ) tnjmonninx6@yahoo.com

  6. Being pen pals would be great!! We could use our Dora the Explorer video for help :-0 ~giggle~


  7. How exciting! The Millers would love to participate. Pair us with whoever you think is best. If they have a child/children that would be great. My kids could draw pictures etc. and send them. Let us know...

  8. Jaynee,
    This sounds like such a fantastic idea. God always finds a way for his people to care for each other!
    Count me in.



  9. I'm looking forward to being able to serve our God in this way. ☺

  10. We would love to be a part of praying for someone in your church.
