God does NOT make mistakes

An investigation, although leading to various possibilities never resulted in any arrest. Shawn believed the seen had been staged to appear to be just another robbery by home invasion, but the overwhelming evidence suggest that it was more than just another robbery. Shawn Casias along with his oldest brother, Johnny Casias decided that they were not going to allow Satan to use the murders of their parents to end their 30 years of service.

Ephesians 3:8       Unto me, who am less than the least of all saints, is this grace given, that I should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ;

Through miraculous chains of events, God has provided an incredible pastor and his family to carry much of the burden that John and Wanda carried for so many years. This has allowed the First Baptist Church of El Cercado to continue and allow the Casias Ministry, now formally formed in Mexico as Ministerio Casias A.C. to support Pastor Gustavo and the other related churches move forward as they preach the Gospel in continuance of Soul Winning which is what John and Wanda Casias so much loved to do.

The Ministry and established Churches have not gone without an abundance of discouragement, battles and all the other tools that Satan uses to stop the work of God anyway he can.

The work founded by John and Wanda Casias, which they loved so much continues. Their service is allowing the people they loved so much to continue to serve as the mustard seed John and Wanda planted continues to grow.

Luke 13:19    It is like a grain of mustard seed, which a man took, and cast into his garden; and it grew, and waxed a great tree; and the fowls of the air lodged in the branches of it.
