May 2023 CHILE MISSION Praises & Prayer Needs


Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever!   –Eph. 3:2021

HAPPY PENTECOST SUNDAY MONTH, everyone!!  Just before he was taken up into heaven Jesus told his disciples (Acts 1:5) to wait in Jerusalem where in a few days they would be “baptized with the Holy Spirit”.  That is exactly what happened on Pentecost Sunday, 10 days after Jesus’ ascension, on the 50th day beginning with Easter Sunday.  May we always remember that the same power of the Holy Spirit that raised Jesus from the dead and that baptized the disciples is the same Holy Spirit power that empowers us today!

He helps us pray (Eph. 6:18 and Rom. 8:26), his sword is God’s Word (Eph. 6:17) and his power is immeasurable.  We’re told to pray in the Spirit on all occasions” and we give you thanks for your prayers of us and for Chile Mission, as we also pray for you!!


As seen here, the rebuilding of Luís’ storage building for grains and equipment is beginning to take shape.  Planks and metal roofing purchased with a special donation from a U.S. church will soon cover the Eucalyptus poles serving as the framing.  Luís is also now fully recovered from being attacked by robbers in his home last month.  He is not a Christian, but Abraham continues to minister to him, epecially with the fire losses and his injuries.  Thank you for your prayers for him!

With the help from men from his main church in nearby Cabrero Abraham has now completed the welding and installation of the new metal entrance gates for the two main entrances to our camp property.  Pictured above is one of the two entrances—much better than the barbed wire fencing that they replaced.  Other entrances have been blocked by tree trunks on the ground, as well as the open areas on the borders of our property. A security specialist is evaluating the placement of security cameras and motion lights.  Your prayers for all of these steps are MUCH appreciated.

In addition, Abraham will be concentrating in May on getting our excavator in full operating condition, as well as improving the fencing in certain parts of the camp property.


Jordan & with MatíasAmongst the families currently staying on our ministry site in Santiago are Jordan & Laura, with their little boy Matías.  You may remember seeing his name in our January 2023 Prayer letter.  Matías is back in Santiago for further exams and possible treatment.  He had a virus known as CMV (Cytomegalovirus) and is now 6 months old, but he continues to maintain the size and weight of a two-month old baby and still cannot hold his head up.  The virus is caught from the mother either before birth or afterwards and as you can imagine, his parents are greatly troubled.  It’s possible that the disease can cause various disabilities.  We appreciate your prayers on their behalf!

Regarding our MISIÓN CHILE Foundation we continue to be in contact with the attorneys helping us with important steps relating to both the board of our Chilean Mission Foundation and our certification to receive donations from all sources.  Thanks for praying with us.


Thanks again for your prayers for the preparation and sale of our Indiana house.  It is no small task as we first sort and prepare items to be either sent to California, be sold, donated, or be thrown out.  Taping, painting, and otherwise re-arranging aren’t far behind.

We spend weekends visiting churches and friends and are SO grateful for the relationship we have with you all.

Praising, praying, fasting to OUR ONE & ONLY “LIGHTS, CAMERA, ACTION” GOD,

Jack & Janine

  1. So glad to hear that Luis is fully recovered. So alarming to think of being attacked in his own home. I pray for little matius also that he would recover completely from his virus. For you & Genine & all the responsibilities you have there, that God will heal those mentioned & that work will move to completion. Love you both.
