Greetings in Jesus!

K-Y_mask_walk_Hotel_Del_Coronado-240.jpegWe are healthy and doing well, thank the Lord. During this past month we have not been calling, scheduling, visiting churches or having appointments with pastors. First thing, how are you doing? This unprecedented and sudden change has caught us all by surprise. So before reporting on us, how can we pray with you?

Yvonne has been making a prayer directory of family, friends and supporters, so we will gladly add your requests and come alongside you in prayer. We are convinced that prayer works miracles. Case in point: last month our AGWM Executive Director Greg Mundis was “…in desperate need of God’s healing touch!”

We gratefully report from a recent AGWM Facebook post:

“Greg is improving steadily. He arrived a week ago from three weeks in ICU at Barnes Jewish Hospital in St Louis. This week at the specialized hospital here in Springfield, he has come a long way: off the vent, off the feeding tube, breathing 100% on his own now, and talking a lot. Soon the trach will be removed. We praise God every day for Greg’s healing, and he praises the Lord, too, for this amazing miracle in his life.”

Now, for loved ones who have not been so fortunate, or who are still battling disease, our heartfelt prayers are with you as well.

Second thing, we want to express our heartfelt thanks for the faithfulness and generosity of so many. Several of you have asked how we are, and even sent special offerings above and beyond to help out during this time. May God bless you for it.

So, you may ask, if we have not been calling or traveling, what have we been doing? Well, during the present COVID-19 social distancing God inspired me to try increase my social media connection by re-telling some of the stories we have shared over years of our life, family and ministry that "give God the glory," in English (#GiveGODglorystory)

& Spanish (#gloriaaDIOShistoria).

On Thursdays I post the next episode. To receive updates, we invite you to follow us on the social media platform of your choice (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter; or see links below).

You can see past videos in the Vimeo showcase. The first two episodes are:
01-My stupidity? Or God’s Sovereignty? (6:33) 02-Migrating to Latin America? (6:01)

In addition, we have recorded video presentations to replace our in-person missionary participation at church. If you would like a virtual visit from us, go to our Vimeo Promo showcase, and please choose the format and length that fits your needs:


1.    Missions Window (English 11:27)
2.    2020-04 Update COVID-19 crisis (English 2:44)
3.    Full Missions Presentation and Preaching (English 30:17)
4.    Yvonne singing “Through His Eyes” Music Promo Update (English 1:50)

Feel free to link, post, or share any/all of these missionary videos on your social media platforms (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter or YouTube).

Fundraising progress report:
   * WAS: $2,000; NOW: $928 in new monthly support needed
   * WAS: $27,000; NOW: $6,956 cash budget lacking
   * As previously reported, we had hoped to return to Panamá end of July. With cancellations and travel restrictions due to COVID-19, AGWM extended itinerating missionaries by three months. So, we will return once budget is raised, hopefully before October!

From some of the most meaningful verses during this time, I could not pick just one:
fear not, for I am with you;
be not dismayed, for I am your God;
I will strengthen you, I will help you,
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
Isaiah 41:10 (ESV)

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous.
Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed,
for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”
Joshua 1:9 (ESV)

…casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you.
1 Peter 5:7 (ESV)
