Bro. Salvador Derreza, missionary to India, giving out tracts

First of all, I would like to thank every one of you for praying for our ministry here in Puebla. This year, during the “Day of the Dead” we were able to give out 40,000 tracts, in just few hours, in many of the cemeteries of the city of Puebla. Last year we gave out 20,000 tracts and next year our goal is to give out 80,000 tracts. Many of our church members did this for the first time and were really thankful to be part of this endeavor. They praised the Lord for participating on this and many of them shared with us amazing testimonies on how people got saved.

Our Missions Conference

We also had our Annual Missions Conference at the beginning of this month. We had the following missionaries visiting our church and presenting their work:

  1. Salvador Derreza, missionaries to India.
  2. Javier Gonzalez, planting churches in the mountains of Puebla.
  3. Luis Colorado, missionaries to Switzerland.
  4. Jesús Alanis, missionaries in Ecuador.
  5. Pablo Yam, missionaries to Venezuela.
  6. Mike Guzmán, missionaries to Venezuela.
  7. Gerardo Castro, missionaries to Venezuela.
  8. Moises Garrido, planting churches in Puebla.
  9. Felipe Sloan, in Xalapa, Veracruz, our guest speaker.

Our mission church also had 5 other missionaries, and their conference was right after ours. This was the first missions conference for our mission church.

Praise the Lord, our faith promise giving for the year was about $17,000 dollars. Our mission church faith promise for the year was close to $6,000 dollars. This means that between both of our churches we promised $23,000 dollars to reach the world with the Gospel! We are very excited about this, and we thank you for your prayers.

People Saved

The ministries of our church include Wednesday soulwinning, Thursday hospital soulwinning and Saturday soulwinning. We soon are going to add Tuesday visitation in the morning time and Thursday visitation during the evening.

On Wednesdays, we have Bible Institute from 8:00 am to 10:00 am. And then at 10 am we go out soulwinning with the students of the Institute for two hours. Today we had 6 people saved! I had the opportunity to lead the Lord Sra. Lucia Arroyo. She said she is interested for ladies of our church to come to her house and give her a Bible study in her house. Also, I was able to speak with Sr. Lauro González. He did not get saved, but he said he would come to church Sunday morning. So, I am planning to pick him up this coming Sunday. Pray that he will come. He said that he lived in the Los Angeles area, in California, for two years and that no one spoke to him about getting saved. I thought that that was kid of sad. But, praise the Lord he is willing to come to our church.

Land Next To Our Church

Many of you know that we would like to buy the land next to our church. Just recently it went for sale. Right now we only have $30k dollars. And the owners now want $160,000 dollars. This land is a magnificent opportunity to grow our church and have more space. (Right now we only have two Sunday School classrooms.) We covet your prayers so that the Lord can provide the money to buy the property. Another option that we have, is to sell our building and buy a bigger lot near the area were we are. We know that God is in control and we need Him to guide us to know what to do.

Thank you for your prayers and God bless you!

In Christ,

Lord willing we will be heading to Mexico the last week in July. We are very excited about it and praying that God will provide for our trip.

West Coast Baptist Church in Vista, CA., is preparing a going-away Munoz Sunday on July the 21st. Our kids attended the Christian school while we were here and they are sure going to miss their new friends, but they are also ready to see their old friends back in Puebla. We sure miss our dear church and friends in Mexico. We cannot wait to go back!

On the mean time we have seen many blessing come our way. Of the them is Damien. After preaching last month at a Spanish Church in Oceanside, CA, a lady came to me and asked me to witness to her first time visitor. He only spoke English. He listened very attentively, but decided to wait. He said that he was raised Catholic, and wanted to make sure that the decision about asking Jesus to save him was to the “correct” one. Two weeks later, while I was preaching at North Hills Baptist Church in San Marcos, CA, he showed up. God moved in his heart and after the message, someone took him through the plan of salvation again and he god saved. He also brought his sister Melissa, and she was saved too!! They were just so excited to have just received Jesus as their personal Savior. Please pray for them as they grow in the Lord.

Iglesia Bautista de Anaheim

Iglesia Bautista de Anaheim

Yesterday we had the opportunity to visit Iglesia Bautista de Anaheim. Pastor Jorge Ayala is leading this amazing Spanish Church. They started just seven years from zero, but they already have a strong soulwinning church. They probably had close to 200 on Sunday morning. On Sunday night the Pastor gave me the opportunity to preach. It was a tremendous blessing. There are just some churches fun to preach at, and this one is one of them. We will be coming back to this church in one month during their Missions Conference. Pray that God will help this church take us on as their missionaries.

We will be going back to Mexico soon. But our plan is to continue visit churches here in the States, maybe five or six times a year, to present our ministry and burden to Mexico. We have now 6 new churches that have taken us on, but we really need 10 more. Our church in Puebla needs us, and we are going back full of excitement to see what else God will do in our midst. Thank you for your prayers.

Prayer Requests:

  • Travel money for our trip back to Mexico
  • For God to provide for the Abeka videos and books for our seven kids.
  • My mom’s visa. She would like to fly to the States and accompany us on our trip back to Mexico.
