January – February 2013 Prayer Letter Update


January / February 2013

Dear Praying Friends,

What a joy it is to greet you once again and share the goodness of our Lord Jesus Christ!

Deputation & Family Update

Since our last letter, we have added several new monthly financial partners and quite a few others that have expressed interest in joining us. I’m always amazed how God opens doors and crosses our paths with people and churches that desire to have an impact in Colombia. If you haven’t done so yet, I want to encourage you to jump on board with us. Each little bit really does help us get closer to reaching people in Colombia with the Gospel.

Also, if you know of a church that would be interested in supporting us or having us in to present our work, please let me know. You can contact me by clicking here.

From The Mouth Of Babes

Amira, who will be turning 3 in March, has made a habit of singing songs about people she meets. Her last song was about her new friend Kylee and went something like this, “I love my friend Kylee… She likes to color… She likes green, purple, blue and red… She’s my best friend ever… And she loves God too… We like to play… LaLaLaLa….” Maybe someday Amira will write a song about you! 🙂

Colombian Culture Corner

When you visit a home in Colombia (a common occurrence, since they are very relationship oriented), it is customary to bring a gift for the hostess, such as fruit, quality chocolates, a potted plant, or flowers. But DON’T take marigolds or lilies, as they are used in funerals!

An Event To Consider

The Our Generation Student Leadership Camp, May 27-31, is actually 2 camps in one. There is a track for youth groups (Middle/High schoolers) and another for College Students/Singles that are already interested in missions. With all the things you’d expect at a summer camp (Yes, there is a BLOB!), what sets this apart is its focus and theme on missions. Missionaries come from all over the world (including us, Lord willing) to challenge and train young people to live for God and be a WITNESS in our generation. Bring a group, bring a friend, and plan to be there.

Prayer Requests

  1. For growth in the new life of recent converts
  2. For others to trust Christ, here and far away
  3. For our support to continue to increase
  4. For Colombian hearts to be prepared
  5. For God to raise up more laborers.

Serving The King of Kings,

Aaron, Aubrie, Amira & Anabel Vance
