Last Thursday my wife and I went to visit a dear family that has been coming to church for the last two months. Pablo and his wife came first. Then, last week Pablo invited his brother, sister-in-law, a nice, his mom and his dad. Marco Antonio, his brother, had to leave early because he had to go to work on Sunday. Also Marco Antonio’s wife left to take him to work. So, we went to visit them last Thursday. The whole family was there. We had a Bible study about Cornelius. At the end I asked everyone there if they were saved. Marco Antonio said, “I am definitely like Cornelius. I am not saved yet.” So, I took another 20-30 minutes, and I explained him clearly that God loves him, and that Jesus died on the Cross for him. At the end we prayed, and he, with his own words asked God to save him. It was a wonderful feeling to see how God worked in his life. We left their house at 11 PM.
Today, they all came back again to church. Marco Antonio’s wife was not at the house last Thursday, but she came today and she got saved!
Today we had many people visiting for the second time, two first time visitors and three people getting saved! We also had three baptisms.
Youth Conference in Cuernavaca, MOR
Tomorrow we are taking 25 young people from our church to a Youth Conference in Cuernavaca, MOR. (about 2 hours south of Puebla). There are five more going from our Mission church. Pray that God will keep them safe and that many of them will make great decisions for God.
Our Mission Work
Bro. Erik, who is in charge of our mission church came to me last week and said, “Pastor, we received $2,000 pesos in February, and $2,500 pesos in March for missions in the mission church. Is it OK to take another missionary for $500 pesos a month (about $40 dlls).” I said, praise the Lord! Take one more! Our mission church currently supports two missionaries and they will be taking one more missionary in less than six months. We are praying that God will give them an average attendance of 50 this month. This month also marks their 6th month since the mission work was open.
Our Church Building
As you might know, we don’t fit in our current auditorium. We are praying that God will show us what to do. We have two options: Expand our auditorium, or sell and buy a bigger property. We had already two arquitects coming to see what we can do to expand our auditorium. And we are also looking for another property that we could move into, without making big modifications to the building. Please pray that God will show us the way to know what to do. I would like to find a place that is perfect for the church to grow into. We have some extra money that we are saving for the expansion for the church, but we could also use it to buy a bigger property.
Pray for our kids. Hannah has a little flu, and I am awake with David right now (12:39 am)because he has an ear-ache. My wife, Nicole, said that she used to have the same thing when she was a little girl.
Thank you very much for all your prayers. And thanks to those churches that support our ministry.
For the souls of Mexico,
