Welcome to our Spring 2018 Pray America~Manos De Jesus prayer letter. Our way to keep you informed of what God is doing in
and though Manos De Jesus! Come, praise and pray with us!
Ron Morin, Founder of Pray America~Manos De Jesus, 1940-2017.
We want to praise our God for the life and service of our founder Ron Morin! For more than 25 years, Ron has been available, he has listened and he has been obedient to God’s calling. God’s calling has led Ron to a variety of service in the States as well as overseas: from a pastor’s prayer network, a shoebox ministry to working with orphanages and eventually to Chichicastenango, Guatemala.
Ron had a vision that “Jesus Christ would be Lord and Savior over Chichi”! Over the last 14 years, God has used Ron to build a ministry and an infrastructure for ministry in Chichicastenango. From its beginnings of renting a mission house and hosting feeding programs, to the multi-faceted ministry on campus of Monte Flor, Ron’s vision of Jesus as Lord and Savior over Chichi is underway at Manos De Jesus.
“Papa Ron”, as he was known to so many staff at Manos De Jesus and mission team members, was a father figure to some, a grandfather figure to others and a mentor to all who came to know him. His love for God, his desire to hear God through prayer, his patience to wait on Him and then be obedient to His call are lessons learned by all who came in contact with Ron.

Lord, we want to bring You glory doing the work You give us to do! John 17:4, “I have brought you glory on earth by finishing the work you gave me to do.” -Jesus
Lord give us direction! Psalm 25:4 “Make me to know your ways, O Lord; teach me your paths.” Psalm 32:8, “I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my loving eye on you.”
God, where You give the vision, please give the provision! Philippians 4:19, “And my God will meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus.”
Lord open their hearts! Acts 16:14, “One of those listening was a woman from the city of Thyatira named Lydia, a dealer in purple cloth. She was a worshiper of God. The Lord opened her heart to respond to Paul’s message.”
Lord of the Harvest, send forth laborers and teams! Matthew 9:38, “Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.”
An urgent and specific prayer request!
Many of you know and have prayed for our sponsor family Theodora and her daughter Johanna before. They are in need of prayer again! Johanna has just nicely recovered from her first tumor removal surgery, but recently the tumors have returned and increased in numbers. She is scheduled for surgery again this May! Would you pray a bold prayer with us? That if it is His will, that our Almighty God would heal Johanna of these tumors-even without the surgery! Let's all petition Jehovah-Rapha, the God who heals on behalf of Johanna and Theodora! If God chooses to use surgery, may the surgery go as planned, may recovery be quick and may Johanna's sons Julio and Cesar be cared for and comforted during this time.
Thank you for reading, praising and praying with us!

The Manos De Jesus American staff will be heading back to the States for a few weeks after a busy spring season of teams. We want to say a big "GRACIAS" to all the teams that served with us over the past few months. And we look forward to meeting friends (new and old) coming on our summer trips!
