Brother Arturo Muñoz was saved at the age of 8 years old in Culiacán, Sinaloa. God called him to preach on July, 1992 during a family camp in San Antonio, TX under the preaching of Pastor Mike Patterson. One month later he went to Oklahoma Baptist College to study to be a preacher under the leadership of Pastor Jim Vineyard. He graduated in 1998.
During a trip to California the week of Thanksgiving of 1998, while visiting some churches, Arturo met Nicole for the first time. They married on June 26, 1999. In May of 2001 they arrived in Puebla with their son Japheth and all of their things in the back of a trailer. Seven years later, still on the mission field, God has blessed them greatly. Five more children were born to them while they were in Puebla: Rachel, Sarah, David, Hanna (twins) and Ashley. His wife Nicole is expecting baby #7 due in the month of July 2010.
Little did Brother Arturo know that in less than five years the church would be able to purchase its very own building and have an average attendance of 120 people. Souls have been saved, families have been rescued, teenagers and adults have surrendered for full time service. Currently there are 8 young people preparing themselves in 3 different Bible Institutes to serve the Lord Full time. Many of them to be Pastors.
In 2007, Brother Arturo also became the Editor of the Spanish Christian Magazine El Fundamentalista, which is now read by more than 10,000 people in the Hispanic world.
If your church still does not have the opportunity and blessing of being able to support the Muñoz family in Puebla, please pray about investing in this exciting and growing ministry!
