This morning was a special morning. I had the privilege to baptize our own daughter Sarah. Today was also a special Sunday because we celebrated Easter Sunday — we celebrated the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ. We also baptized 4 other people of our church. What a blessing is to see our church growing in grace and in numbers. We had 99 adults during our Sunday morning preaching service (not counting the children’s church nor the nursery). Three of them were first time visitors and we had one person accepting Jesus as his personal Savior.

Youth Conference in Cuernavaca, Morelos

From Monday to Wednesday we took our youth group to a Youth Conference in Cuernavaca to Iglesia Bautista Monte Abarim, whose Pastor is Brother Alejandro Ramirez. We had 27 young people from our church plus another 20 from Brother’s Tim Aguiar’s church from East Puebla. A total of 50 attended the conference just from Puebla — What a blessing! — 10 years ago I only took one young man to a youth camp and now there are more young people saved and willing to serve God!

When I went to Cuernavaca to pick up our young people, Bro. Tim Aguiar told me that his mini-bus broke down. The bought a mini-bus few months ago and they helped us take some of our young people. Pastor Alejandro Ramirez let us use one of his fifteen passenger vans to bring our young people back to Puebla. So… I brought 25, and Bro. Tim brought another 25! Praise the Lord we were not stopped and everything went OK! Here is a picture of the ones I brought (missing three on the picture.)

Couples Retreat in Toluca, Estado de Mexico

This last Thursday through Saturday my wife and I had the opportunity to attend the annual couples retreat that Bro. Victor Castillo organizes in Toluca. Bro. S. E. thought during the three days. My wife and I came back to Puebla blessed by the preaching of the Word and the fellowship.

Bro. Manuel Garcia

Today we had Bro. Manuel Garcia, missionary to “maybe Puebla” preach in our church. Bro. Garcia has been a missionary in Guaymas, Sonora for the last 7 years. God has put in his heart to visit the south part of the country of Mexico and see where He would lead him to start another church. We are praying for Puebla for more missionaries. Puebla, I believe, has the least amount of missionaries per capita in the country of Mexico. At the moment we have 3 IFB churches in the city. We surely would love for Bro. Garcia to come to Puebla, but we will wait to see what God has for him. If you don’t know were to go in Mexico as a missionary, please playfully consider the city of Puebla as an option. Please come and help us!

  1. Praising the Lord with you for your daughter Sarah’s salvation and baptism! It is such a special treat when it is our own children who experience these big steps in their lives, and we are happy for all of you!
