We support eight missionaries who are serving and ministering in the mountains of Oaxaca among people who have still not heard the Gospel. Over the next several months we want to use the newsletter to introduce you to these amazing people so you can be praying for them:
My name is Teresa Tello Rodriguez. I was born in the community of Yucuyi, which is part of San Sebastian Tecomaxtlahuaca, in the Mixteca region. Currently, I live in Juxtlahuaca with my family (grandmother, mother and my brother and sister).
We heard the good news of Jesus through a missionary, Maria Villa Pablo, who not only presented us with the Gospel, but also guided us in the first steps of the faith.
Some time after, I felt that God was calling me to serve him and doors were opened for me to study in the Bible Institute in Baja. When I finished the Institute, I returned to my town to be a light to my own people.
RIO DE HIELO:
Cafeteria for children: Every weekend we have about 30 children attend. We share with them a Bible class, we serve them food and we spend time playing with them. My greatest wish is that the children know the truth, and the truth is Jesus. I desire for God to use them to share with their families.
Embroidery workshop: Around 40 women attend an embroidery workshop every Saturday. While they embroider, we put on music that has a salvation message. They are also able to hear Bible advice about the family and at the end we have a small Bible reflection. We hand out cookies and juice.
We want to start this workshop in other towns where God will open doors, above all else, in communities that do not have the Gospel yet.
