Come and see.” Oaxaca already is an amazing corner of this world, and it’s amazing to see how the Holy Spirit has been working and moving in the Mission here over the past year. Under the leadership and direction of our pastor, Edgar Rivera Aguilar, we are experiencing spiritual healing and growth in the lives of the children and staff, along with members
of the community who have begun congregating with us.
I personally feel flooded with gratitude when I look around
to see the people I serve alongside with their hands raised
in worship and adoration to our Lord.
Joy springs up in my heart to witness children and youth feeling the freedom to dance before the King. Truth is being spoken in love, deep wounds are beginning to heal, and relationships are slowly being restored. We hear reports of how God is working through
outreach efforts as well.
We have discovered new ways to share God’s bounty with those in need around us, through supplying rehabilitation centers and local Bible schools with food staples that they sorely lack. God has produced blessings from the earthquakes last September, opening up connections with new communities from the valley to the isthmus,
and even in Chiapas.
The mountain missionaries continue to enter new communities with their ministry teams. They join us once a month so we can
learn more about them, the work they are doing,
and the ways they see God moving.
And the teenagers here are shining so brightly that other churches are beginning to invite them to their events, in an effort to inspire
their own youth. God truly works in wonderful ways.
One of our staff members often says, “We are not a children’s home. We are a family.” As with many families, life is not all sunshine and roses.
We continue to have struggles, misunderstandings, and disappointments. But this family has an amazing Father
who unites us and we are eternally grateful for His mercy and grace,
and for the ways He is moving among us, even now.
