VISITS AT CHRISTIAN COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES
We are coming to the last few days of our recruiting trip to the Christian Universities . We are talking with students that are studying Inter-cultural studies with the prayer that some will be interested to be missionaries in Mexico to partner with Mexican pastors to plant churches. This month we have been to Great Lakes Christian College, St Louis Christian College, Lincoln Christian University and Seminary, Johnson University and Milligan College and Emmanuel Seminary, and Manhattan Christian College. We finish up at Dallas Christian College on November 9. These trips have given us insight on how the IMPACTOnetwork can better partner with schools to increase awareness of the need in Mexico for church planters. We are also seeking well prepared young people with a heart for sharing Christ in Latin America. Already we have compiled a list of some candidates, and we still have at least five more schools to visit over the next year. We were especially encouraged by Johnson's and Ozark's openness to see how they could provide internships and possibly do some on site missionary training in Mexico in the future.
After Thanks-giving we will be in Maryland to report to three of our supporting congregations.
JUBILEE CHURCH MEETS FUND-RAISING GOAL!
Jubilee Christian church has finished her campaign to raise 70,000 pesos to erect a wall and gate at the entrance to the church property. For the first time they have surpassed their goal. They are beginning construction. construction.pesos to erect the entrance wall and gate to help the church with security. The church has been very faithful as they still have two weeks and 6000 has come in already. This is a big accomplishment for the Mexican church.
Presently they are studying the sermon series "I'm a member". A series on why the church is important and our responsibilities and the benefits of being part of a church body.
OTHER CHURCHES IN PACHUCA AREA:
They were encouraged by a visit from David Garcia, the night we left Pachuca, to hear about his church, The Door to Heaven, that it is moving forward and has doubled in size this year. They even have 6 small groups meeting.
The Ticyuca church, Fortaleza, is ministering to families in their community. They are a church plant of Jubilee of about 25 in a town about 45 minutes away. Jubilee sends a team each week to teach their children and youth in Sunday School. Andrew Duggins has been a big help in this ministry and even had opportunities to preach
