June 2020

Published by The Kahlers on

Greetings from the Grand Vision Baptist Church in Bocoyna, Chihuahua, and from all of its missions throughout northwest Mexico. We are grateful to the Lord for His blessings, protection, and provision for the month of June. We praise the Lord that He is still on the throne and still in control. Psalm 46:1-3.

Church Update

We are thankful that we were given permission by the local authorities to open our church to the public for services, and we are also thankful that we have been having good attendance.

Twenty-six men were present for our special Father’s Day service. One young man was saved during the special service. A total of seven people were saved and nine people were baptized during the month of June. Of those baptized, two were from the Grand Vision Baptist Church, two from the mission in Natahuachi, and five from the mission in La Junta. Pray especially for Mrs. Hortensia, a Tarahumara lady that was saved in her home, that she will attend services on a regular basis.

Missions Update

God continues to bless Missionary Mario Zavala and his family in Panalachi. They continue to visit communities near and far, teaching children’s classes and Bible Studies in people’s homes.

Missionary Bonifacio and family continue faithfully in the midst of difficulties in Kipor and Villa Juarez, Sonora. Please continue to pray for Brother Bonifacio’s health.

Brother Carlos and Belem Madrigal, missionaries going to Japan, need our prayers. Their plans have been changed in regard to their departure. The process to expedite visas has been suspended.  In the meantime, they continue to serve the Lord by working in their sending church, the Grand Vision Baptist in Bocoyna.

Prayer Requests

We are thankful for God’s protection and His blessings upon us during these unusual and uncertain times. There are still many people to be reached with the Gospel, so we persevere in His name.

Thank You for your prayers for my health. I have had Cataract Surgery and am thankful that it was a success.

The following is a list of our current prayer requests:

  • Pray for our Christian School, that God will lead us in the preparation for the opening in August.
  • Pray for the Bible Institute, that the current students will all return and that more young people will surrender their lives to serve the Lord and enroll in the Institute.
  • Pray for the members of the Grand Vision Baptist Church and its missions, that the members will remain faithful and that souls will be saved.
  • Pray for Pastor Jose Martinez and the 14 full-time workers, that God will provide for their spiritual and physical needs.

We are deeply grateful to all of you that have stood behind us with your prayers and faithful support. Please continue to keep God’s work here in Mexico in your prayers.

Sincerely in Him,

Mrs. Joan Kahler
Missionary to Mexico
