Dear family and friends,
I write to you because we really need your prayer support. Since last Friday we have been hearing of serious cases of the swine flu in Mexico. Aguascalientes which is only two and half hours away from us had 17 deaths caused by the swine flu.
"The oldest fair in the country, the San Marcos in Aguascalientes, which has taken place for the last 181 years, was suspended. The fair famously features bullfights but just six minutes before the toreros were to start, it was cancelled. The economic impact of such cancellations will mount as the panic — and the potential declaration of a pandemic — takes hold. Aguascalientes, for example, counts this time of the year as the high-point of its business calendar. The fair provides employment for a lot of people. (See the story about how the vaccine the CDC has prepared for swine flu.) "
Jerez is a very rural town, so..pray that God will keeps us safe from getting the danger.
Right now my husband is in Phoenix with his Dad, unable to come back today like they had planned because of a car problem. Also, due to a string of unforeseen problems, they don't yet have money to pay for the trip. Please pray that God will provide for their needs. The birth of our baby boy is coming up very soon.
We are trusting the Lord in the middle of everything. He is in control of everything, and we know that if He is allowing this,it is for a reason. He gave us Psalm 91 this week, promising that He will keep us safe.
We are peaceful and joyful because we know that God is bigger than any disease.
Please pray that my husband Dan Giles (jr.) will be here for the birth our baby boy. Also pray that my little girls won't get the flu, we are not going out at all, at this point it is better to stay indoors and clean everything very well.
I just want to remind everyone that we are doing well and are at peace. We just need your prayers.
In His Name,
