Rejoice with us, El Ancla Iglesia Cristiana had its first baptism on March 28! Christian moved to Querétaro with his fiancé Marisol 2 years ago. He had attended a Christian church in Pachuca but had never made a decision. Marisol had been baptized at a women's retreat but never received any follow up. During quarantine, they starting reading the Bible on their own and the Holy Spirit convicted them to get rid of the saints and images that they had previously worshipped. He started attending El Ancla with Marisol a few months ago after seeing the signs for El Ancla while eating tacos. At El Ancla they have found not only salvation but also a community with whom to share life. Please pray for Christian and Marisol as they grow in their faith and also as a family. They are getting married soon and have a baby on the way. Thank God for how His Holy Spirit works in people's hearts as they seek Him. Pray for the El Ancla staff as they continue to reach out to their community, even with many things still closed or severely restricted.
Iglesia Cristiana La Viña held a Holy Thursday communion service on April 1st. The evening was based on 1 Corinthians 5:7 which says, "Get rid of the old yeast, so that you may be a new unleavened batch- as you really are. For Christ, our Passover lamb, has been sacrificed." We looked at how the Old Testament outlines the Passover celebration and how Christ takes the place of the lamb and takes away our sins. It was a somber yet celebratory evening. For many, it was their first time attending such an event and shared how impactful it was.
In March and April, IMPACTOnetwork held two events to encourage and connect its church planting teams. The women of Iglesia Cristiana La Viña, El Ancla Iglesia Cristiana and IMPACTOnetwork were treated to manicures and pedicures at a local spa, had lunch together and heard a teaching from Juanita Del Angel. The men traveled to Peña de Bernal where they hiked and had a ATV tour followed by a time of teaching and dreaming with Sergio Alvarado. These event have allowed church planters to have a fun break from their daily routine and enjoy a time of fellowship and sharing reminding them that they're not alone in the challenges that they face as church planters.
There's still time to sign up and participate in New International's Miles for Missions initiative! On May 22, people around the world will be logging miles with the goal of covering 25,000 miles representing the circumference of the globe. Some of our team here will be walking, biking, or rollerblading miles. One of our churches has a group going on a canoeing trip to cover the committed miles. There is also the goal of raising funds to reach more people with the Gospel. You can support church planting in Mexico through the Kingdom Partners team which is raising funds for the El Ancla church plant or the Mexico Miles team which supports IMPACTOLatino's general church planting fund.
