April and May are full of holidays in Mexico. You may think of Cinco de Mayo which is a commemoration of the Battle of Puebla (not Mexican independence day). There are many more holidays to be celebrated over a 3 week span! April 30th is Children's Day which often includes parties and candy. May 1st is Labor Day, May 10th is Mothers Day and May 15th is Teachers Day. Most of these holidays are celebrated at IMPACTOnetwork churches with special events or some sort of recognition. We are thankful for the kids, mothers and teachers that God has placed in the churches!
At El Ancla Iglesia Cristiana, the Children's Ministry began to meet on Sunday mornings at the facility! They previously had been holding children's Sunday school classes over Zoom because of health and safety precautions due to the pandemic. The Children's Ministry inaugurated their space with a Children's Day party to celebrate. They had Bible stories, games and even a piñata. The kids were so excited to meet together. We look forward to what God will do through the Children's Ministry at El Ancla.
The women of La Viña met together for a breakfast before Mothers Day. Marisol López, IMPACTOnetwork's Director of Legal and Financial matters, taught on "Beyond the Mirror" about looking at ourselves the way God sees us. Natalia Ochoa, wife of Pastor Gerardo, did an excellent job of organizing the event. Please pray as the La Viña women follow up with the guests who were present.
Pastor Gerardo of La Viña organized the "Model Man" event at the end of April to connect with the "Defeating Giants" sermon series. Jaime Castro, Director of Mexico Christian University (UCM), taught and led small groups. Four different churches, including La Viña and El Ancla, were in attendance. It was a great time of learning and fellowship for all.
This Saturday, May 22nd is MILES FOR MISSIONS! There's still time to sign up to participate and donate. You can support church planting in Mexico with the "Mexico Miles" team or directly to the El Ancla church plant with the "Kingdom Partners" team.
