Friday, May 25th:
Thank you for your prayers.
Tonight was our last event of this tour. We were at the Inglesia Methodist Libre in Papalote and God blessed as 74 people prayed and responded to the invitation to receive Jesus Christ into their lives. Of these 37 indicated a first time acceptance of Christ, 28 registered a rededication, and 9 indicated 'other commitment'.
A very special first time acceptance of Christ occured when an 84 year old man who said he had never been in a church at anytime in his life came forward and asked to receive Jesus Christ. This was an exceptional experience with God due to his age and the fact that he had never gone into a church before. This was definitely a "Divine Appointment". Praise God for His grace and love that has touched so many of these Mexcian people.
We would like to thank Pastor Ramon Rubio and his wife Esther, Dr. Don and Ilene Nagle, and Pastor Moises and Tere Rodriquez affiliated with Northern Light Ministries who spent several days in January traveling to the locations we have been at and did all the initial groundwork of contacting and arranging for this Freedom Team Mexican Tour. Thank You and may God richly bless you for your time and efforts!
We leave at 9AM tommorrow morning to return home and will be traveling for 3 days. We would appreciate your prayers for a safe and uneventful trip home.
Thank you for all you prayers and the blessing you have in helping reach many of these people with the message of hope and salvation found only in Jesus Christ.

Tonight we were in Mulege B.C. in the center of town in the town plaza. A very powerful movement of the Holy Spirit was being poured out on the town. We won't know the final count of registered decisions until tomorrow due to some decisions cards not being turned in by a couple of new helpers. What we do know is the more than 21 prayed to make a decision for Jesus Christ. Of the cards we received tonight 10 people indicated a first time acceptance of Jesus Christ, 7 indicated a rededication, and 4 indicated other commitment.
Two police officers who were on patrol stopped to obeserve the Power Explosion and ended up praying and making a decision for Jesus Christ.
The movement of God continued for a considerable time after the Power Explosion ended with a number of people coming for specials prayers and desperate needs. This special outpouring of God leds me to believe that Revival started tonight in Mulege and will continue to spread through this littel town of 3,111 Mexican people. Praise God for His infinite wisdom and power.
Thank you for continuing to lift up our Team in prayer and know that God is answering your prayers. Bless You, Pastor Tom

Tuesday, May 22nd:
God continues to bless with drawing souls unto Himself. We were again blessed tonight as 46 people prayed and responded to the invitation to make a commitment to Christ. Of these 8 indicated a first time acceptance of Jesus Christ, 24 made rededications, and 14 indicated 'other commitment'. The ages of the respondents ranged from 9 years old to 70 years old. The temperature was very hot and in spite of the heat we were blessed with a very receptive audience. Praise God!
Thank you for your prayers.

Your prayers were extremely effective today. Leaving Viacaino B.C. at 6:45 AM the Team traveled 142 kilometers to Santa Rosalia where we went into the prison at 9:30 AM. Even though it was early in the day the temperature inside the prison yard climbed to 40 degrees celsius which equals out to 104 degrees Fahrenheit which was very hot for us Northerns. Yet God blessed very stongly as His Holy Spirit feel upon the prison yard and 118 prisoners prayed and made a decision for Jesus Christ. Of these 83 indicated a first time acceptance of Christ, 24 indicated a rededication, and 11 indicated other commitment. A very blessed and very powerful Prison Power Explosion of God's grace and love for these prisoners.
At 7:30 PM we were at the Event Center in San Lucas which is about 25 kilometers South of Santa Rosalia. Again God poured out His Spirit as 41 Mexicans prayed and made a decision for Jesus Christ with 19 indicating a first time acceptance of Christ, 18 rededications, and 4 other commitments. The message of salvation and hope in Jesus Christ was powerfully lifted up and God's presence was strongly felt again.
Due the response at the San Lucas Event Center the Power Explosion for Tuesday, May 22nd has been moved from a church to Center Park in the middle of Santa Rosalia. Those organizing the locations were very eager to see many more people have the opportunity to attend this event. Please lift this up in prayer and that again God would use us to bring souls into His Kingdom.

The quotation reminded me that on March 11, 2012 I committed myself to the next chapter of my life. Until then, my focus remained on life with husband. He could fix this or that. He would plant the flowers. He’d know when my car needed tires. Or how empty my bed without him.
On that Sunday in March our Pastor read from Joshua 24, “As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.” I scrawled across a note paper, “Me and my house, Paddy and me, we will serve the lord.” My anger spilled through the ink until a still small voice inside said, “Kat, ask me. Just ask me.”
After the sermon I bawled a bucket load of tears, asked the Lord to forgive me for not trusting him with all the little things in my life and determined I could live without husband.
Freedom comes when we let God have full control of our lives.

Thank you for your continued prayers.
This evening we were at a Municipal courtyard in Vizcaino B.C. and the weather was beautiful. The Freedom Team Power Explosion was well received by the people and God again allowed us to be a part of His great harvest with 43 people of all ages responding in prayer and making a decision for Jesus Christ. Of thos who filled out decision cards 20 indicated a first time acceptance of Jesus Christ, 22 indicated a rededication, and 1 indicated 'Other Committment'. Thank you, Lord, for your faithfulness.
The event was organized by Pastor Lazaro of NLM Ministries who has been in Vizcaino with his wife, Letti, and 2 daughters for the past 8 months beginning a new church work. Also a big blessing was from Pastor Ceballos and his wife, Laura, who pastor the Calvary Chapel in Vizcaino. They brought chairs and people from their church to help and encourage us.
The event was opened by Pastor Moises and Tere who along with their son, Moy, do an excellent job with their gifted music.
Tomorrow we leave at 7 AM and drive 142 kilometers to Santa Rosalia where we do a Prison Power Explosion at 10 AM in the Santa Rosalia Prison.
Again thank you for your continued prayers.
Bless You, Pastor Tom
