"I thank my God every time I remember you. In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now, being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus." Philippians 1:3-6
From our IMPACTOnetwork Church Planting family to your family: GRACIAS! We are so thankful for your partnership in planting churches! You are an essential part of our team reaching people who are far from Christ. Because of your prayers and financial giving, Iglesia Cristiana La Viña and El Ancla Iglesia Cristiana are impacting their communities. In person and online, church planters are being trained. Believers are growing in spiritual maturity through discipleship courses. Thank you for making it possible! May God continue to do good work in you as He is also doing here.
Iglesia Cristiana El Ancla (Anchor Christian Church) has been meeting on Sunday mornings for a month. They are currently having about 50 people in attendance. Three new families have been consistently attending and have expressed interest in serving. A new Life Group is also opening this month. We are excited to see how God is working in the El Mirador neighborhood. Church Planter Andrés García and his team are working hard to continue reaching out to the community to share with them God's news of rescue for all. You can be a part of what God is doing at El Ancla by investing in the new church plant.
Though the pandemic has affected Sunday morning gatherings and Life Groups, it has not been able to stop personal evangelism studies. On Sunday October 25, five people surrendered their lives to Christ in baptism at Iglesia Cristiana La Viña! It was excited to see Kike baptize his daughter Sofía and Cynthia baptize her dad Victor. Other Life Group leaders participated baptizing members of their groups with whom they had been studying. Praise God for these new believers! Pray for Victor, Sofía, Jesús, Luis, and Juan as they start their walk with Christ.
As we reflect on 2020 and the strange year it has been, one of the losses we have felt is not being able to minister along side short term groups who make sacrifices to come and serve in Mexico. We truly value our partnerships with churches and individuals in the United States who invest in church planting. Without you, our ministry would not be possible!
We are looking ahead to 2021 and it is our desire to be able to once again receive short term ministry teams. Our priority is the health and safety of trip participants and nationals. Because of this and the current climate, some modifications are being made. We are focusing on small groups of 7 or fewer participants which allows us to have more focused interaction with all. Ministry needs here in Mexico may include light renovation and improvement of church facilities. There is also a need for teachers in areas such as church planting and leadership development.
On a national level, Mexico is open for visitors with no quarantine requirements currently in place. Entering stores and restaurants requires the use of face coverings, temperature reading, and application of hand sanitizer. As we have seen throughout the duration of this year, all of this is subject to change. We are grateful to serve a God who never changes! Please contact Eric Duggins (firstname.lastname@example.org) about serving in Mexico with IMPACTOLatino. We look forward to continued partnership to reach Mexico’s cities with the Gospel of Christ.
