The Itzels NewsletterPrayer Requests/Latest News
Adoption - After 2 months in Arizona, Karen is home with the new baby. Due to legal reasons, we can't release too much information or pictures until the adoption process is finalized (in a couple of months), but we can say that the little baby girl is home and even making it to some of our concerts (She had her first on-stage appearance last week). Please keep praying for the process as there are several snags along the way that could come up. Also pray that we will be able to pay for this huge loan hanging over us in this slow economy. We are blessed that we have met our matching grant with LifeSong for Orphans! We'll give you more information as time goes on...
Brand New CD - We are in the process of recording a new Itzels CD that will be unlike any other we have ever recorded. The tracks are done and we are working on vocals/lead guitars. The album is scheduled to be released in early December and will be called "The New Life". Here is the track listing:
Burn the Ships
Draw The Line
Thank You God For Saving Me
Jekyll & Hyde
Blessed Be Your Name

BKM - As many of you know, Bill and Karen Itzel Ministries is the non-profit ministry that we started over a year ago with an evangelistic focus. This year, we have done CD giveaways, an Ohio ministry trip, the adoption ministry, and the mission trip to Nicaragua. We are looking for supporters to allow this ministry to expand. We love one-time tax-deductible gifts, but would also love to have a few more monthly supporters. Email me if you would like to help us in our efforts to reach the world with the good news!
