International Ministries

Iris and Mario Morales

January 28, 2009 PrayerCall

Missionaries Iris and Mario Morales, who have served in Bolivia for the past seven years, also work with American Baptist International Ministries in the recruitment of new missionaries. Iris and Mario serve on part-time special assignment as recruitment associates while continuing their mission work related to Bolivia.

Mario writes of encouraging news concerning Iris’ recent medical treatment:
Oncologists at the MD Anderson CA Center are very optimistic to see how Iris is progressing. She looks great, energetic, enthusiastic and her lab results were encouraging.
This was in general the most positive visit we had since we started treatments here in the U.S. The doctors may be surprised to see Iris’ improvements but we know that it is our God, the one who takes all the glory and honor for what He is doing in Iris’ health. We are due back in July for follow up, possible treatments. In the meantime we will continue our mission work to Bolivia and at the same time working with International Ministries to identify people God is calling to serve in mission work. It is a better life because of Jesus!
•    Pray for Iris’ health and continued improvement.
•    Pray for God’s blessing and direction as Iris and Mario minister both in Bolivia and in the U.S. identifying people who can serve as missionaries.
•    Pray for their children, Mario (20) and Ben (16).
