Our dear friends Pastor Jesús & Rosa Rodriguez oldest son Oscar was murdered in Tijuana

 Late last night this email came from Pastor Jesús in Tijuana:

"About an hour  we were told by the police our eldest son Oscar was killed since August 3, some of you knew him and know that he lived a life away from God.  We are thankful for your friendship and please be praying for us at this difficult time"

For the last 18 years we have had the privilege of serving and ministering with Pastor Jesús and Rosa Rodriguez in Tijuana. They are among the most humble and faithful servants of the Lord I have ever known...they are "family" and we grieve with them over Oscar's tragic murder.

I just talked to Pastor Jesús on the phone and they will be going downtown this afternoon to ID his body and start making arrangements. The murder was very brutal and it appears that it took the police awhile to identify his body and connect him to Jesús and Rosa...Rodriguez is a very common Hispanic name. Oscar knew the truth and it is our prayer that he had time to cry out to God and get things right.

Please pray for them as they go to identify the body this afternoon...especially for Rosa as she has ongoing significant health issues that affect her energy, strength and body chemistry/emotions.

Pastor Jesús did not mention any financial needs but I know they live on about a $1,000 per month and it would be very helpful and encouraging not to be concerned about finances during this time. 

Thank you for your prayers and please consider joining with us in sending a special gift to them at this time.
