IMPACTOLatino church plant El Ancla Iglesia Cristiana is encouraged by growth. Over the past month, five new families have gotten connected to El Ancla. Many of these families are already Christians but have recently arrived in Querétaro. Others hadn't made God a priority but the pandemic has drawn them back. They will be taking the "Conócenos" (Get to Know Us) course to learn more about El Ancla and its mission to reach its surrounding neighborhood, El Mirador.
This growth is leading to some new problems. The chairs that were purchased around launch time are almost all being used every Sunday. The area that they have designated for Ancla Kids needs to be reworked for the amount of children who are attending on Sunday mornings. Approximately $12 buys a chair. Would you buy a new chair or two so that someone new can hear the Gospel at El Ancla?
The building that Iglesia Cristiana La Viña has been renting for the past two years is on the second floor of a sports complex. To access it from the parking garage, you have to go down one flight of stairs and up two. Due to this there have been some families and individuals who have chosen not to attend La Viña. The leadership had been praying and researching a way to remove this barrier since before the pandemic. Due to a generous gift from a supporting church in the US, La Viña was able to build a small pedestrian bridge that goes directly from the parking garage to La Viña's space. The bridge connects to the building in the children's ministry area so the staff built a hallway from the entrance to the main auditorium. We are so grateful for this new addition that allows us to reach people who may have been previously deterred by so many steps.
We look forward to a new class of church planting residents in partnership with Mexico Christian University in August as well as an updated online course in which people from all over Mexico will learn practical church planting and leadership principles. This summer, the residency teachers have been filming new clips to be used on the platform and social media. In July and August, there is a big focus on promotion and recruitment for the program. This training has already impacted dozens of church planters and leaders and we know God will do the same this year as well.
