RUF HOLY WEEK RETREAT
During Easter Week, around 40 students headed to MTW’s camp in Guanajuato for our Holy Week retreat. Pastor Victor Martinez of Redeemer PCA in San Antonio, TX taught on “A New Family: The God Who Adopts”, and students had a great time learning about the Christian life and building community (there was even an engagement!). Pray for Christian and non-Christian students to grasp and respond to God’s adopting love as they finish the semester and enter the summer season.
ENGLISH CLUB CONVERSATIONS
The free conversational English Clubs that RUF offers twice a week continue to be the hub of a community of friends and conversations, and several students who we know from the clubs have professed faith this semester. Pray for their growth and for continuing fruit from this no-strings-attached ministry to the campus.
RUF LOCATION ISSUES
The Lord provided a great ministry center last year in a student cooperative across the street from campus. Due to problems with the administration, the cooperative is moving, leaving RUF struggling for a location for May and for next semester. Please pray for God’s provision of a place for large group!
CHURCH PLANT CHANGES
The San Angel church plant, aimed at a professional demographic located in southwest Mexico City, has a strong core group and vision, but recently had to be suspended. Pray for the core group and mother church as they figure out next steps. Pray also for the Redeemer Mexico City church plant and their pastor, Victor Cruz as they move into their new location and continue to reach out in the hipster neighborhoods of Condesa and Roma.
Peter continues to be in the US on Home Ministry Assignment, a time of rest, renewal, and support development after 7 years in Mexico City. Pray for this time of growth for Peter and for the support he needs to raise for himself, RUF staff Ruth Martinez and interns Monserrat Santiago and Juan Carlos Alca?ntara (he is currently at 60% of his personal budget). Peter would like to meet with each current supporter if possible to catch up on life and ministry.

- For wisdom and grace for the leadership of RUF UNAM (Ruth Zurielly Martinez, Monserrat Santiago, Juan Carlos Alcántara) and the San Angel church planting project as they hit some bumps.
