As I read Mathew 24 in light of the world wide virus, I read about famines and earthquacks in diverse areas. It didn't say pestilence in my NIV. So I picked up my trusty old King James version,  and there is was, pestilence. I googled pestilence and bingo, Pandemic.  Is this the beginning of the days of sorrows before the tribulation period? I'm thinking yes! There is right now locusts devouring Africa, over 100 - 3.0 earthquakes every day, volcanoes are blowing up all over the globe, the Church is silent, people are freaking out because of corona, but all these other signs are there at the same time. Birth pains, more frequent and closer together. Aye chiwawa!!!!
  We see what not being prepared for even the slightest disruption in our life has done. Of all the things humans need to survive, TOILET PAPER IS THE FIRST THING THEY HOARD????? We're blessed, a warehouse full of beans and rice, freeze dried food, several pallets of water, a propane,  gas, and solar generators. We can take care of lot of people, should the need arise, and yesterday I picked up over 1700 new bibles, tha Power Ministry had for us in their storage shed a few towns over. So I guess you could say that we're ready for whatever is going on. I don't say that to boast, I say it to encourage people to be prepared to take care of yourself and others as well.
  We are not supposed to travel to Mexico,  but we did go Tues to finish up some quilts that Paula needed to send to those that ordered and paid for already. Andres and Goya held our monthly food outreach Saturday without us and ministry continues with food outreaches. If any of you needs to discontinue supporting the ministry during these difficult times,  we understand. Take care of your family first. We have bagged up beans and rice and will head into the community as restrictions permit. The US MEXICAN border is closed now to non essential travel, we'll test our ability to cross in a few days. Blessings to all and thanks for the continued prayers and support.


  The bible says that perilous times will come towards the end of life as we know it. I'm kinda of the in the camp of God is shaking the Nations. Not one or two, but all nations are feeling the backlash of the Corona virus. 
  As I type this, the US Mexican border is preparing to close, both North and South to non essential travel. We are home in the US, and our monthly food outreach is tomorrow morning.  Andres and His wife will either hold it as scheduled or postpone it. The call is theirs. A few weeks ago, we crossed several thousand pounds of black beans and rice. God knew this virus was coming and we prepped without knowing the extent of the virus. We also bought enough oil, sugar and flour to supply 150 families.
  We're so thankful for the ability to provide all this food to so many. The demand on this side of the border is bigger than ever. We had only 25 bags of rice left when Power ministrie Louis Davenport showed up with 200 bags of rice. God's timing is perfect everytime! Speaking of Power Ministry,  they were supposed to be finishing up their 3rd week of ministry this week with 80 men, but they wisely cancelled their trip.
  I had oral surgery last week,  and eye two eye injections this week, and went to my cardiologist ( all is well),so I haven't gone to Mexico as much as Paula. Her quilting class is still cranking out the quilts.
  Facetimmingwith the kids is more frequent, trying to get things done around the house, way to much time on social media, trying to spend more time in the Word, and prayer, trying to find toilet paper, kidding, I'm a prepper and have had plenty for years.
  Trusting you all stay calm, and free of fear. God did not give us that Spirit. The hand crank bike we're given to Melodys Orphanage and we took them across. He has given them to people with missing legs.



  Jesus grew in wisdom, and stature, and favor with God and man. Why would Jesus need to grow in these areas? Wouldn't He already have all these things?  I would dare to say that in His humanity, as in ours, we need to acquire this.
  Why do I need to acquire wisdom? Because I have been so stupid!!! Stature is something I don't seek, but it just comes as we discover our purpose. Favor, oh yes, favor, with God and man. A walk of faith for provision for the ministry requires favor from both.
  Last week we doubled our food purchases to feed more people. A step of faith.  We also bought enough roofing materials to cover the 100 foot long, 50 foot wide shelter at Senda De Vida home for the wandering migrants in Reynosa,  another instruction that God gave me. Obedience is better than sacrifice. I brought the $3000 in cash to pay for the materials. Before the day was over, donations in the amount of $3000 was pledged to pay for it all. Favor! With God and man. Now I'm looking for a new opportunities to sow into. LUKE 6 vs 38. Give, and it will be given to you. Pressed down running over, for in the measure you give, it will be given to you.
  Hallelujah for the truth of God's promises!
