Looking Over the Horizon
by Mauricio & Lulu Salazar
Faith is the most powerful thing that exists in us. By faith we are saved through grace. It is by faith that we understand that God made the Universe. It is by faith that we call things that are not like if they were. Faith is the victory in us that has overcome the world. Faith is the certainty of things we hope for, it is the evidence of things we don’t seen. Contrary to what many people think, faith is not subjective at all, it is completely objective, solid, specif and the most real thing that exists. Faith is the hand that comes our from our being to take hold of the things that God has promised to those that believe in Him.
When I say “Looking over the Horizon” I am saying that I am looking beyond of where the line of the horizon is, where my eyes can’t see, in other words, as the old timers would say……”yonder”.
Missions is very much like this, we call the souls that are not saved, saved, the churches that are not planted yet as already planted, the disciples that have not yet been “discipled” as “discipled”.
We have been for the last 10 months traveling in the USA visiting many churches and sharing the things that are not yet there as if they already are. We are eager to go and start our work in Paris and see how our Lord Jesus touches people and plants His church through us. Yet as we remain here in the States still missing a percentage of our support the work continues to wait for our arrival. Please pray for the necessary group or prayer partners and supporters to be added to the team and that we, all together in prayer, supplication and work see that great city, so called “The city of lights” meet the real Light which is Jesus Christ.
In these months we have visited 33 different churches in several States, Lulu and I have traveled 37,000 miles in our little car. We have met new people and seen good old friends and supporters as well and we thank you for supporting us in this time of furlough and transition from Brussels, Belgium to Paris, France while increasing our support in the US to meet Paris’ prices and cost of life.
We still have need of more partners for this new effort, please help us to pray as we visit still many churches to share the vision for Paris.
We also want to thank the Lord and praise His name for the grant that my son has received to study in Southwestern Christian University, so He will be moving from Brussels, Belgium to Oklahoma City in the month of January 2016. Please pray for him as he enters this new chapter of his life. Please continue to pray for our daughter Betsy that is currently in her second year in SWCU.
We pray and hope that you continue to be blessed and don’t forget to pray for the nations and never loose your Christian biblical perspective of this world of ours, for it is written: “Ask of Me, and I will give You The nations for Your inheritance, And the ends of the earth for Your possession.” Psalms 2:8
