As the IMPACTOnetwork project continues developing its processes and materials for planting new churches in Mexico, we continue to be involved with some young local churches. One of these churches is Iglesia Cristiana Fortaleza (Fortress Christian Church) which was planted by Iglesia Cristiana El Jubileo. The church is located in a small town outside the city of Tizayuca, about halfway between Pachuca and Mexico City.
Jorge and Maria Esther Herrera had begun a cell group in their home that was having over 20 people weekly and the Lord placed a burden on their hearts to see it grow to something more. After more than a year of prayer and discussions with Jubileo's eldership, the first services were held in May 2016.
Every week, Jubileo videotapes its sermons and, with the help of Good News Productions International's NoMAD team based at Jubileo, sends the sermons to be shown a week or two after being preached at Jubileo. This allows Fortaleza to continue with the same cell group studies that Jubileo uses. Jubileo also sends teachers for the children's classes every week and a preacher monthly (rather than a video sermon).
On May 21, 2017 Fortaleza celebrated her first anniversary. Luis Lopez, Jubileo's pastor preached and challenged the congregation to focus on God's purpose for their lives. Please pray for this congregation located in a challenging community. Pray that Jorge and Maria Esther would be encouraged and have wisdom in leading.
Also pray for the Jubileo leadership as they search for a pastor to serve at this church. IMPACTO Latino is providing the funds that will be used for the pastor's salary.
On May 26, the entire Mexican based IMPACTOnetwork team met in Querétaro to review projects and talk about upcoming events. It was good to have the team together again, albeit for a short time.
The team has already done Sunday School teacher training at a church in Querétaro and soon will be holding a seminar for pastors on legal and financial requirements for churches.
We will also be participating in events in Mexico and the United States this summer. Please continue to pray for our team and the connections we are making laying the groundwork for church planting.
