Because of your generosity, 2 new churches were planted in Mexico this year. Expansión launched in March on the northwest side of Querétaro. The Mérida church plant team moved in July and has started their weekly gatherings. Both church plants are building relationships in their neighborhoods and seeing people introduced to the hope we have in Jesus.
Church planters and leaders are continue to be trained by IMPACTO's Church Planting Residency. There are currently 14 people enrolled in this year's program. There is also a new course, "Biblical Panorama 360" being launched in January to increase Biblical literacy and maturity. Each of the 10 classes will be 6 weeks long and will cover topics such as the Life of Christ, Old Testament survey, and books of the Bible.
These are only a few of the projects the IMPACTO team has worked on in 2022. There are more new projects beginning in 2023 that will serve to plant churches and transform lives. Your tax deductible year end gift will help these projects IMPACT even more lives in Mexico's largest cities. We are grateful for your partnership and generosity.
And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord. This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.”
Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying, “Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.” When the angels had left them and gone into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, “Let’s go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has told us about.”
In Luke 2, we see how the angels announced the Good News of Jesus' birth to shepherds. How did the shepherds react? After getting over their initial fear, they decided to go together and see for themselves.
In Mexico as we plant churches, we see God transforming lives. Many of these people have the same reaction of the shepherds- they invite others to go with them to meet Jesus. This happens because of your generosity! Thank you for investing in church planting and life transformation in Mexico. May you have a very Merry Christmas and meet Jesus in a new way this year.
