Dear Friends and supporters of NGM:
My trip across Canada went very well, and we (NGM) had a board meeting June 4th and all were in favor of pursuing this couple further to become members of NGM. Our next meeting is planned for July the 9th, and if all goes well they will become members of NGM. I am really looking forward to working with them and training them for this position. And I also want to continue to work with NGM. One of the main reasons for me to step down is because of my limited Spanish.
For the month of May, four of the workers have visited 63 schools, served 18,419 students and 754 teachers.
On a personal note I would just like to inform you that I have been diagnosed with Parkinson’s. I have been asked how I feel about it, and after thinking about it this is how I feel about it.
Let me first of all say that because I am a created being, I have a Creator who has placed me here, and who also will take me from here at His appointed time. To get a glimpse of the greatness of this Creator, let’s consider the “sun.” As we all know that without the sun life on earth could not exist. The distance between planet earth and the sun is 149,000,000 kilometers. To travel to the sun with the speed of a jet it would take 17 years. To travel around the sun with the speed of a jet would take 6 months. Compare that with planet earth, it would only take 50 hours to travel around the earth by jet. Besides that, there are bigger planets then even the sun and also farther away.
This does not even begin to explain the greatness of our Creator, and leaves humanity incapable of understanding The Creator. This is only one of the reasons He became a human being “flesh” to dwell among us and make Himself known to us, His created beings. Yet not a single bird shall fall to the ground without Him knowing about it, Matt. 10:19. And although I do not have many left, He also knows the number of hair on my head, verse 10. His greatness exceeds all computer abilities, because computers have nothing in them that He has not already made, but He allows man to discover them.
Having said all that, I just want to acknowledge that He knows all about this Parkinson’s thing, and if He is allowing this to get my attention I want to respond to Him willingly. On the other hand, if this is an attack from the enemy, I will plead for His healing. I know that many of you will take this matter to the Throne of Grace, and may the Lord richly bless you for it.
Gus, on behalf of NGM.
