This is an update from our missionaries in Mexico.....

Dear All,

Good news from El Monte! You may remember our shock when three men showed up on the doorstep and claimed that our property belonged to their community. You may not know that they later informed us that we had twenty days to cough up $250,000 U.S. dollars or they would send in squatters. You may recall our relief when our Christian lawyer found iron-clad evidence in the national land registry that the property did not, and never had belonged to them. And now...the rest of the story!

The other day we made an appointment with goverment officials at the state level to help arbitrate the matter. Shortly after we got to the office, the official called downstairs to the main desk to see if the men had arrived. Yes, he was told, they'd signed in and asked if we were really there. The official then asked that they be sent up for the meeting. After a few moments the guard called upstairs to explain that the men couldn't be found. Our enemies had run away! Hooray!

Psalm 37:9 says, "Evil men will be cut off, but those who hope in the Lord will inherit the land." Amen. Thank you for your continued prayers!
