March 2017 Prayer Letter

Dear Friends and Family,

We hope that each of you are doing well. After a very busy Christmas season and January, we were finally able to get a little bit caught up on things last month. Jeremy stayed busy preaching and teaching kids. Because our Sunday School program has grown, Michelle is now serving as the Sunday School Administrator. Our church has also begun to have weekly teen services and weekly ladies meetings. There were many individuals that have rededicated their lives to the Lord. One young couple in our church will be getting married this month. We will be meeting with them to do some premarital counseling. As for the land and new building, we have now purchased the land and are going through the process to begin building in the near future. As the church plant is becoming more and more self-sufficient, Jeremy has been helping with the preaching and teaching in another local church. One other thing that is keeping us busy is the legal residency renewal process. Thankfully, all of our paperwork has been accepted, and we are currently awaiting approval.

As for the family, we are doing well. In the beginning of the month, we had a short visit from Michelle’s parents. They are always a blessing to us when they come. Our girls are both doing well in school. It has been great for Ellowyn because she is now learning much more Spanish than ever before. Pregnancy has been physically tough for Michelle. Thankfully, she is now beginning to feel better. This month, we will be celebrating our eight year wedding anniversary. I (Jeremy) am so thankful that God has brought Michelle into my life and the blessing she has been. She is a wonderful mother to our girls and an amazing wife to me, and I look forward to us serving the Lord together for the rest of our lives.

We are thankful for each of you who pray for us so diligently. Next month, we expect to have our residency approved and also begin the next steps of the building process. We are also planning to host a three day evangelistic conference on the 13th through 15th of March. This month, please pray:

1. That God will guide our ministry each step of the way.
2. That God will keep His hand on Michelle and our unborn child during this pregnancy.
3. That God will do a great work in this upcoming evangelistic conference.

In Christ,

Jeremy, Michelle, Lila, and Ellowyn Blanz
