    “Where Are You?”- GOD
                 Known as the first question in The Word Of God asked to humankind after the fall (and we did just enter Autumn), as we enter into a New Biblical Year, according to Leviticus 23:23-25, let each and every one of us prepare our hearts and the world that we live in for the second coming of Christ/Messiah/The Anointed One, spoken of in 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18; Isaiah 27:12-13 & Matthew 24:31.
    October brings us Yom Kippur/The Day Of Atonement (Leviticus 23:26-32; Zechariah 8:19; Romans 3:23-26 > Fulfilled:  Zechariah 13:1; Romans 11:25-27) on Wednesday the 9th, Columbus Day (USA), Thanksgiving Day (Canada) and Sukkot/The Feast Of Tabernacles (Leviticus 23:33-44 > Fulfilled:  John 1:14; 7:37-41; Revelation 21:1-3; Zechariah 14:16-17; Luke 2:21), Monday the 14th, National Boss Day, Wednesday the 16th and Halloween on the 31st.  [I strongly urge each and every one of you to read and pray over the above Scriptures].

                  Please pray for and attend the last Fiesta De Amor/Festival Of Love of 2019 at Anna Becker Park in Belen, NM on Saturday, October 12, 10am-3pm (Contact Pastor Jim Montoya @ 505-440-9770 for more details), pray for a Men’s Meeting I’ll be attending in Las Cruces, NM on Friday & Saturday, October 18-19, for other strategic prayer events happening throughout our state this month and especially future political elections.  Mark your calendar for Saturday, November 9, 2019, as we’re planning a return trip to see The 10 Commandments Rock on Mystery Mountain in Los Lunas, NM and hope you’ll all prayerfully consider joining us in our efforts to get this historic site protected, as a State or National Park.  If you or someone you know would like to hold an event in your area of the state, don’t hesitate to contact me.

    MUCH is happening this month, so surely we’ll connect somewhere in New Mexico, but even if you can’t make it to any of these events, you can certainly agree with us in prayer for God to have His Way in our state, across America and around the world!


    Fall Pilgrimage Day Trip to Ten Commandment Rock and Hidden Mountain 9-21-19

    Our Fall Pilgrimage Day Trip to Ten Commandment Rock and Hidden Mountain is scheduled for this Saturday, Sept. 21st.  I hope all of you can attend.  I am still waiting for final permit approval by the SNM Public Land Commission and anticipate receipt of it this week.

    We will all start meeting around 8:15-8:30 at the gas station about 1 block west (right) of the Los Lunas I-25 exit.  The gas station/market is just a short distance from the Wal-Mart parking lot.  Please park toward the main street/highway and away from the market building.  It is suggested that carpooling from Albuquerque or your neighborhood be considered to save gas and minimize the number of cars coming.
    At the gas station, we will basically introduce ourselves, then direct everyone with driving instruction to the actual site (approximately 10-13 miles west of Los Lunas toward Acoma).  The Hidden Mountain site is located across from the Valencia County Landfill.  Further instruction will be given out when everyone arrives at the site.

    Event Overview:  Once at Ten Commandment Rock, you will be provided with some basic public address announcements/instructions following by entertainment and sing-a-longs, character reenactments of Moses as well as an Apostle of Christ, communion, and a festival of Blowing of the Shofar.  This will be both a sacred and historical day for enjoying the artifacts and petroglyphs on Hidden Mountain.  I hope all of you have read and enjoyed the 13-page document I distributed on the Ten Commandment Rock and Hidden Mountain.

    Safety:  Come prepare with water and stacks.  If you have a medical issue, be prepared in case.  Come with adequate walking/hiking shoes/boots.  The walk from the parking area to the base of Hidden Mountain where the Ten Commandment Rock is located is flat mesa area except for the last 100 yards or so.  There will be loose rock in that area; so be careful and watch your footing.  Bring a walking stick with you if you want.  But let’s all make this a safe and enjoyable trip; celebrating and praising our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

    If you need any additional information, you can contact me at my email address” or on my cellphone at (505) 892-5685.  You can also contact Mark Tross for information.

    Rosh Hashanah, Yom Teruah (Day of Shofar/Ram’s Horn Blowing), Yom Hazikaron (Day of Remembrance) and Yom Hadin (Day of Judgement), the Jewish New Year, actually means “Head of the Year” (it’s one of the most important holidays), begins on the Hebrew calendar dates of 1 and 2 Tishrei/September 29 at sundown – nightfall on October 1.  The shofar itself recalls the Binding of Isaac, an event that occurred on Rosh Hashanah in which a ram took Isaac’s place as an offering to God.  This holiday is also considered the anniversary of the universe, the day God created Adam and Eve, a day of judgement and coronation, proclaiming God King of the universe!

    May 2019 Update

    Shalom In Jesus,
                 Are you counting Up To Shavuot/Pentecost? Now that we celebrated the life, death and resurrection of Jesus (on The Feast Of Firstfruits), let us occupy/take ground in May! I visited Questa, NM in April for a Revival Meeting @ Pastor Gayle and Peter Martinez’s Church (uniting Southern CO and Northern NM Churches) and The Fiesta de Amor @ Ana Becker Park in Belen (Bethlehem), NM, where 4 people received Jesus, 5 were baptized and 2 are planning a wedding.  The fields are ripe for harvest, so let’s PRAY To The LORD and take The Gospel/The Good News out of the box, go into ALL The World to seek and save the lost, preach, teach, heal and set the captives FREE!
                What’s happening This Month? Thursday, May 2 is National Day Of Prayer, so find an event near you @ and attend + Pray Daily for Government, Media, Education, Church, Family, Military and the Economy.  Ramadan Begins on Sunday the fifth, where Muslims worldwide will be fasting and praying for thirty days, so certainly The Church Of God should be praying for those who sit in darkness to see His Marvelous Light!
                 JOIN us for The Fiesta de Amor/Festival Of Love at Daniel Fernandez Park in Los Lunas on Saturday, May 11 from 10am-3pm (contact Pastor Jim Montoya @ 505-440-9770 for more details).  Sunday the twelfth is Mother’s Day!

    the fortieth day after Resurrection Sunday, on which Christ’s Ascension is celebrated in The Church – READ Acts 1 and do the math: 40 + 10 = 50).
                 Continue to Pray and Read THE WORD:  Judges 20-21; John 19-21; Ruth 1-4; 1 Samuel 1-29; Psalms 56-68; Proverbs 11:24-14:1-14; Acts 1-20; 2 Samuel 1-24 & 1 Kings 1-2.

    May The Light Of Life Shine Ever Brighter In & Through You!

    As we polish off another year In God, we are closer now to His Second Coming, than when we first believed.  We continue to read and Pray thru The Word this month with Dan. 1-12; Psalms 133-150; Proverbs 29:15-Proverbs 31; Revelation 3-22; Hosea 1-14; Joel 1-3; Amos 1-9; Obadiah-Jonah 1-4; Micah 1-7; Nahum 1-3; Habakkuk 1-3; Zephaniah 1-3; Haggai 1-2; Zechariah 1-14 & Malachi 1-4, because we all want to finish well.  THANKS & God’s Richest Blessings to one and all who joined us in reading and praying through the entire Word Of God this year.  He watches over His Word to Perform IT!

            Hanukkah, The Feast Of Dedication, Begins At Sundown on Sunday, December 2nd, lasting for eight days it ends Monday, December 10th, so let us pray for the Salvation of every Jewish person alive today and for all the Gentile Nations to Come to The Light Of The World, Yeshua, Jesus, ‘God With Us.’ He celebrated The Festival Of Lights at The Temple in Jerusalem, according to The Good News, The Gospel written by John The Apostle in Chapter 10:22-23. The First Day Of Winter starts on Friday, December 21st, setting the stage for Christmas Eve on Monday, December 24th and Christmas Day on Tuesday, December 25th.  Our Canadian friends have Boxing Day, Wednesday the 26th and New Year’s Eve comes to us all on Monday, December 31st, 2018!
            The Bible tells us that ‘It was winter, and Jesus was walking in the temple, in the colonnade of Solomon.’ As we enter into Winter, which Our Heavenly Father Created, Jesus continues to walk with us and talk to us, because we are now The Temple Of The Living God, abiding In Him, The Wisdom & Power Of God, as Living Stones, being built up, together as One, In The Unity and Purposes Of The Holy Spirit.  It’s been my pleasure to work with you this year, throughout New Mexico, furthering The Kingdom Of God in our state, in person, on social media sites, television and radio.  BLESSINGS & Thanks to the many across America and around the world who continue to pray for God to have His Way here in the Southwest.  I certainly look forward with great expectations and anticipations, as to what God is going to do upon, in and through us individually and corporately, as His People in 2019!

    To the “Prayer Warriors” of the Church of Español Thank You for participating in prayer with us throughout the year of 2015. It was a year of


    Prayer Warriors (2)


    To the “Prayer Warriors” of the Church of Español

         Thank You for participating in prayer with us throughout the year of 2015.   It was a year of

    victory in  the  spiritual  realm.  We have had some awesome prayer sessions.  God is bringing

    the Body of Christ,  His Bride, in unity within New Mexico to intercede for the state.  The last

    prayer session God brought people from Arizona,  Albuquerque and Santa Fe to help us pray for

    the valley and the surrounding Pueblos.


    I  have  been  studying  about  great  moves  of  God  and  revivals  in  general  around  the

    world  and  they  all  start  with  the  saints  gathering  in  prayer  and  the  pulling  down  of

    demonic strongholds.  Many of these strongholds have been established hundreds of years ago

    and some  more  recently.   If we continue in obedience to Chronicles 7:14, God will heal our

    land physically and spiritually.  I believe 2016 is going to be a year of change and the beginning

    of a great move of God but it is also going to be a year of great victorious spiritual battle.


    We  invite  you  to  another  prayer  session  on  Saturday,  February  13,  2016  at  10:00 

    a.m. at  EVHS  water  Tank  Hill.  Bring your weapons of spiritual warfare and let us seek

    God for change in our beautiful valley and state.  May God bless you richly.

    Your Brother in Christ,


    Joe  Gonzales


    II Chronicles  7:14    If  my  people  which  are  called  by  my  name,  shall  humble  themselves  and  pray,  seek  my  face  and  turn  from  their  wicked  ways.   Then  will  I  hear  from  Heaven  and  will  forgive  their  sins  and  will  heal  their  land.

    Merry Christmas & Happy New Year 2016 to ALL who are part of NM Prayer Connect!

            Thanks to ALL of you for praying faithfully with us in 2015, as members within the body of Christ here in the great state of NM.  God has opened doors throughout our state, bringing unity, opening spiritual eyes and ears to what His Holy Spirit is saying and doing in our midst.  From Roswell to Jemez, Taos, ABQ and beyond, we have been humbled and honored to serve Him with you, but still much work needs to be done, in building relationships across the board, fleshing out The Gospel and taking ground to further His Kingdom.  Already we are working towards Franklin Graham’s coming to Santa Fe on Wednesday, March 16, 2016, 12 noon, at the Capitol West Concourse, outside the Roundhouse.  Hopefully you’ll join us in prayer prior to this event and by attending, plus spreading The Word to ALL, because this is a national happening, The Gospel will be preached, so pray specifically for a true spiritual awakening and revival to sweep across our land.  I’m hoping to restart our monthly prayer call, so please let me know what day and time works best for you and if you or someone you know would like to hold an event in your area.  Be encouraged, cause much has been accomplished in 2015 and much has been learned.  My prayer is that you’ll experience the fullness of His Presence during this Christmas Season and catch His Vision for you, your gifts, talents, abilities and what He is calling you to do in 2016.  Remember always that God is faithful & Jesus never fails, so keep your eyes on Him, the author and finisher of our faith, be faithful, obedient and His will shall be done!
