My church family is Palm Valley Baptist Church. We are a very small and "old-fashioned" church in an area of northeast Florida that has many "fancy" new churches with large congregations. We have been searching for a pastor for almost a year now and the problem is that we are in a crisis financially. We have a beautiful, historical parsonage that is currently in such a state of disrepair (including major foundation issues) that it could easily cost $50,000+ just to make it livable again! We have sadly had to consider selling it as is, have it torn down, or moved. But now, we are excited to have a pastor candidate coming to preach for us on March 29th. If he becomes our new pastor, he will want to live in the parsonage and has already told us that he can provide a team of skilled workmen to do the much-needed repairs. We will need to supply the money for materials. Money that we don't have. Please lift up your prayers that we find the man that God has prepared for us, and that we will find a way to raise the funds needed to make the parsonage a home again. God bless!

While we were in Guatemala the Lord gave us a vision to not only continue serving "the least of these" in Jacksonville, but to also continue the ministry we started in Poptun when we were there last month. The ministry we partner with in Guatemala only gets to the remote village of Poptun once or twice a year. There are many widows and orphans in this area of Guatemala that need our help and the love of God. We feel that we are called to expand our ministry here in Jacksonville to reach the people of Poptun. Our goal is to open a refuge center in this small village meeting the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of the community while partnering with the local church. There are a million details that need to be worked out, but we know that God is calling us to expand our borders. We are excited to step out in faith in this area and believe God will use us and work through us wherever He has us to bring glory to His name. Ministry in Jacksonville will continue to go on as normal as the need here is great! This simply gives more people an opportunity to serve! As we embark on this adventure Light of the World has needs. We need you to continue or begin praying for us. Pray that we would seek God with all our hearts. Pray that God would give us wisdom and discernment. Pray that God's will be done here in Jacksonville and in Guatemala. Pray that God would be glorified through Light of the World! Another need is finances. We know that God will provide everything we need to accomplish His will and we believe He will use people like you to sow into it. When you give to Light of the World you can designate whether you would like to give towards local ministry in Jacksonville or international ministry in Guatemala. Your donations will continue to be tax deductible and will help us take Jesus to the ends of the earth. The final opportunity is to join us on one of our mission trips to Guatemala. It is not an easy trip, but will give you the chance to help people in need, share Jesus with those who have never heard, and send you home with a fresh fire and passion to share the love of God with the lost. Thank you for your prayers and your support! We are excited to "go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation" with you! (Mark 16:15)

Please pray for my family that we get financially stable. We have been struggling for years, we have not always made the best decisions with our money and now we are facing losing our home. I have prayed for forgiveness for mistakes and I am praying God intervenes and saves our home and gives us wisdom in our finances. God please have mercy on us. Thanks in advance for all your prayers.
