Greetings from the Rojas’, your Missionaries to the US Military!
Dear Pastor Smith and Church,
Trusting the Lord that all of you and your families had a safe and blessed Thanksgiving Day celebration.
We would like to thank you so much for your faithful prayers and monthly financial support! God has been so good, and He is getting us closer and closer to our mission field and continually blesses our deputation and soul-winning efforts. Even though Canada's border is closed, the Lord blessed and used technology via Zoom meetings and allowed me to present our ministry and preach in two churches, thus they partnered with us and our ministry.
-Three more churches took us on for support!! A church in Utah showered us with so much gifts and incredible amounts of spending money for shopping and love offering towards our ministry through the sacrificial giving of God’s people despite this pandemic!! They gave above and beyond their ability even as such a time as this. Glory to God!
-We are now at 73.6% ... much closer to our departure to the field. Hallelujah!
-God has led us to more Divine appointments:
-8 Nov 20, Durshanna works at Garcia’s Mexican restaurant in Layton, Utah. The Pastor and his wife took all of us missionaries, their families, and church staff to lunch after church. On our way out, the Pastor’s wife invited Durshanna to their church and handed her a church invitation. My wife and I were the last ones to leave. The Lord gave my wife the opportunity to share her the Gospel, and shortly after she prayed and accepted Jesus as her Lord and Saviour. Her info was provided to the Pastor’s wife for follow-up
-9 Nov 20, flight 785 to Nashville, my wife was sitting next to Maya from Montana, a college senior student majoring in Social Sciences and Business. The Lord used my wife to share the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ. She told Maya that we can make plans for our future but things don’t always happen as planned. After sharing the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ, she prayed and asked Jesus to come into her heart, to save her and to be her Lord and Saviour.
-13 Nov 20, Jessica works at IHOP Smyrna. My wife and I and a friend of ours were finishing up with our breakfast, the Lord allowed my wife to share the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ to Jessica. My wife asked Jessica if she truly believes the Word of God and what Jesus has done for her, Jessica said yes. My wife guided her through the sinner’s prayer and she prayed and accepted Jesus in her heart as her Lord and Saviour. She provided us her contact info for a follow-up from a nearby like-faith church.
-17 Nov, Marcus who’s originally from Puerto Rico and currently resides in Nashville was working on a project across the base commissary and exchange. My wife thought it was the project she developed many years ago to install two gas pumps for the base. So, she approached him out of curiosity, Marcus said it’s for ATMs instead. After discussing the project, my wife handed him our church’s Gospel tract and briefly explained the simple plan of salvation. Shortly after that he prayed and accepted Jesus Christ in his heart as his Lord and Saviour.
Please pray with us for the following:
•That God will work on government leaders’ hearts who are persecuting and politicizing our churches that are being fined for conducting church services
•For well and healthy Christians to return to their respective church services once their churches reopen
•More Divine appointments during our soul-winning efforts
• For Prayer and Financial Supporters that God will continue to keep everyone safe, healthy, and to enable them financially.
•Our country, the pandemic, the President, military, first responders and frontliners
•Our continued safety on the roads and to stay healthy.
Please send us any prayer requests you would like us to pray for. We believe in the power of prayer.
In His Service,
Bro Fred and Ms Roma
