The wish of this congregation for you is grace and peace from our Lord Jesus Christ.
It is of much joy to inform you of our activities in this month, which the Lord helped us to do.
We had the privilege, while having a thanksgiving service at our sisters Maria Luisa and Alejandrina, widow of Gomez, for her son’s first year of life. Because of the time of the year, different activities were organized for children, which were of great blessing and uplifting, they had a contest on all they had learned during the trimester.
According to the program we made for this year, during this month, every week end we went to visit hospitals to pray for the sick and their families, and take them some coffee and bread. This we did after 10 p.m.
Such activity was motivational for our brothers, and being aware of spiritual and material needs in those places, we decided to continue with the commandment of James 1:27 the last weekend of each month. We ask your prayers so that the church may not faint in this purpose.
Also, the last Sunday of December, the ministers signed a pact of work with God. We send attached the work program for 2010, and pray to be able to apply it.

Receive our Greetings in the Lord, from the Church of Christ in Lo de Coy, Mixco.
It is a pleasure for me to tell you about the work that is being done in the church here thanks to the blessing that you share with me.
In November I decided to strengthen the message that the church receives, by visiting the brothers in their homes, dividing my time among reinforcing the brothers and evangelistic work, using Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. Thanks to God I was able to visit 12 homes. Working on Wednesdays and Saturdays, I was able to meet and evangelize: Juan Guillermo Gómez, Julio Oroxon, Sebastiana Canel, Pedro Tambriz and Alexander Vásquez. I ask your prayers for them, so the Lord my give the growth of His Word in their hearts.
We had a thanksgiving service at the home of our sister Alba Marina widow of Martínez, because God protected the life of her grandson after falling from 20 meters. To God be the glory.
It was also of great joy for the church that young Luis Fernando Vásquez came to our worship service the first Sunday of November, since he was absent for health issues during a whole year.
With help from God and other brothers we were able to have a special activity in the home of our sister Norma Vásquez de Alonso, after finishing the study we gave her. We trust and hope in the Lord that this family may turn to the Lord.
In Christ Jesus,
Mario Tobar Dubon
It is a great blessing to be able to greet you once more in the Lord, asking Him to always protect and bless you.
Thanks to God’s blessing, we were able to share on October 4th with different congregations a special worship service for unity among churches in Mixco. This activity was held in a park, and our children and teachers also had participation.
We want to share the news that in the Lord we have new brothers:
Brandon Santizo,15 years old was baptized on october 4,
Jaime Hernández, 60 years old, was baptized the 14, and
Paulino castellanos, 94years old was batized the 25th.
Please keep them in your prayers.
Our children had their Bible school season’s end, in which an exam was made to the congregation regarding what they had learned during the period of classes.
To maintain harmony and fellowship among the members, we had a recreational activity on the 18th; it was a great experience for children, young ones and adults.
It is also a pleasure to tell you that our ladies are active in their ministry; they had a special trip to an ecological park, and both single and married women participated, and some of the men helped to take care of children.
Having in mind the program for the year, the church visited the orphan’s center with children that are HIV positive. This was a memorable experience, and we were able to share benevolence with this center. All of the groups of our congregation participated.
By God’s blessing, we continue to study the evangelistic course with 6 people, and we are visiting and encouraging members in general, and giving follow up to those who where baptized with the “My first 40 days” course.
We always thank you because it is thanks to the Lord and your effort that this congregation is being blessed.
We already installed the gate from the side of the street, so now our children and our belongings are a little safer.
In Christ Jesus,
Mario Tobar Dubón.
