News from Kenn and Frieda Pike

Kenn and Frieda have asked if we could pray for the Christian Center in Los Guido. The center is being used 6 days a week for cell group, prayer meetings, women ministry, computer classes, English classes and a childrens club. There has been an increased focus on sharing the gospel and discipleship with all those that come. Recently a young boy accepted the Lord while attending the childrens club. We are teaching English three times a week, we have been asked if we would open another English group in a different location. Please pray for continual healing for Friedas knees. The doctor has her on restricted walking orders, only where the ground is level and for a limited time. Jocelyn knows that it is very difficult to find in this part of Costa Rica. Dios los bendiga a tudos ustedes y gracias por sus oraciones. God bless al  of you and thank you for your prayers.
