Tim and Kathy Laughlin
-We may have mentioned before that it’s been a challenging year or two in our little church plant as we’ve lost some of our core members, and lost the venue we had been using for our children’s ministries which caused a real drop in numbers. We certainly wouldn’t have chosen to have these things happen but we’re beginning to see the Lord’s hand in all of it as it has given us opportunities to reach out in a new area.
-Our Oasis kids club was well attended last week and we’ve had some new kids coming. Some of the young people were asking spiritual questions and were very interested in what God has to say through his word! We went away from that evening amazed and encouraged!
-We had an evening Carol service on Sunday evening which was very well attended by people from our community. The gospel was clearly presented and many of those who attended stayed for tea, coffee, biscuits and a chat, many seemed very interested. We’ve had others from the community who have recently started attending church and even Bible study.
-Please be in prayer that the Spirit of God will move in their hearts and that they would believe. Also, that he would bring along believers who could join with us in the work here in Kinsale.

Foundation for His Ministry
Baja and Oaxaca, Mexico
-Please pray for God to continue illuminating this valley and the children at the home.
-Specifically I pray for our children in university who are on the brink of "adulthood". I pray they know they are not alone and they will seek God as their compass.
-I pray for the six new children who have arrived this past month. Three are babies but five are young ladies (age 5-15) who have transitioned here....tough to begin with but with the holidays even more so. I pray God can redeem these children's pasts and not be the "identity" of their future.
-For those of us who serve, I pray for strength, patience and reliance on a Mighty God who equips us for His work.
