National Leadership Conference 2016

Thank you for your prayers for our Leadership Conference. Praise the Lord, we had 16 people that surrendered their lives to serve our Lord and Savior full time! We also had an attendance of 550 people and among them, we had 44 Pastors, assistant Pastors and Missionaries attending our Conference. We had the privilege to have the following guest speakers during our conference: Pastor Kevin Wynne, from Mexico City; Pastor Luis Ramos, from San Luis Potosí; Pastor Luis Parada, from Long Beach, CA; Pastor Oscar Galvan, from Sahuarita, AZ; Pastor Gil Torres, from San Diego, CA; and Pastor Alejandro Cordova, from Celaya, GTO. All of them were used by God greatly to bring exactly what we needed!

20,000 Tracts – Battle of Puebla Parade

As we do every year, we were able to go early on the morning of “Cinco de Mayo” and give 20,000 tracts just before the Battle-of-Puebla-Parade started. Our family had 1,000 tracts, and we gave them out in less than 30 minutes. One young men that we sitting waiting for the parade to start, helped my oldest son Japheth, to give out some tracts to the group of people around him. I even took some pictures of this “unbeliever” helping us give away these Gospel tracts! Praise the Lord many, many people were reading these tracts, and I am sure, many got saved!

Update on New Property

I would like to thank all those who had been praying for the purchase of our new church property. The owner accepted our proposal and within 30 days we were able to come up with the first 1 million pesos! We only had 300k and God provided the rest through a series of miracles. The first one is that our church gave an extra 300k pesos within 20 days! The last miracle is that we were still short 120k pesos and a brother from another church new about our need and gave the rest of the money! We are so excited about this answer to prayer. We have been looking for a new place for our church for quite-a-while. This new place has 800 square meters of land and is a little over three times the size of our current place. Our 14th anniversary is the first week of July and we would like to have our first service in the new place by then. Pray that this will happen!

Naason Joaquin Garcia

Few days ago, my wife and I were witnessing to a man named Raul Jimenez. We were in an area that is inundated with people from a sect named “Luz del Mundo” (Light of the World). This sect buys and rents houses all around their main church, and is very difficult to find people that does not attend this church. This sect is very similar to the Mormon church; it is like the Mexican version of it. They worship an “Apostle” named Naasón Joaquín García. Anyway, after I was done talking to Raul, I asked him if he wanted to pray and ask God to save him; he, without hesitation, bowed his head and started to pray by himself, a very honest prayer for God to save him. Praise the Lord for God’s grace, and for one more person going to Heaven!

Prayer Request

Please pray that we can sell our current church building at a good price and fast! so we can finish paying the new church property. The owner is giving us three months after the first down payment to pay the rest of the money for the new property. Thank you!

We Found a New Property For The Church

We have been praying now for about two years for God to give us a bigger place for our church. Two weeks ago we found one property that is about 15 blocks from our church and in the same main street where we are. The place is three times as big as our current place. We have 250 sq. meters and the new property is 800 sq. meters (about 8,500 sq. ft.) It sells for a good price and we think we can come up with the money. I would like to ask you to consider us helping us to pay for this new property. We have most of the money, but we are still short 20 thousand dollars. Our church has been saving money for the last five years, and we also want to sell our current property for a good price. Please, help us to pray for this needs. And if you, in any way, are able to be a blessing to us, please call me or send me an email. We could easily fit over 500 people in the new property. Here is a video below…

Trip To Cuajinicuilapa (Say that five times!)

From April 1st to the 5th, we took a group of 16 people from our church in Puebla (including our family) to visit my sister Aglaee and her husband in Cuajinicuilapa. My brother-in-law and my sister are doing an excellent job in this town. Cuajinicuilapa is about 9 hours south from Puebla, and only three hours from Acapulco. It’s very hot and humid; about thirty minutes from the Pacific Ocean. During our time there, we went out soulwinning and our group was able to lead 30 people to the Lord, and 15 came to church on Sunday! Praise the Lord they were encouraged in their third anniversary with the church.

Evangelizing Puebla

We continue with our vision to reach Puebla with the Gospel. This is our soulwinning group that went out two weeks ago to knock on doors and tell people about salvation. My wife and I were able to lead four people to the Lord. Just so you can understand why is a little more difficult to lead people to the Lord here in Puebla, I would like to give you an example. On our trip to Cuajinicuilapa, ten of us went soulwinning and 30 people got saved. Here in Puebla, over 30 people went out soulwinning, and only seven people got saved. And it was a good day! Normally we see three or four people saved, during our soulwinning time on Saturdays. Please pray for Puebla, we love the people, and we want to reach them before it is too late. That is why we are constantly praying for God to let us start 20 churches within 20 years here in the city.
