Ricky was commended from the Mitchell Good News Centre in Mitchell, Manitoba, Canada in June 2012. He spent the next couple years in Pharr, Texas and different places in Mexico with established missionaries to learn about the work. When he married Erika (Thiessen), they were commended as a couple from Mitchell in July of 2015. Most of their time is spent in:

  • Study and preparation for meetings.
  • Sharing the Gospel through regular distribution of literature, gospel meetings, and special outreaches.
  • Teaching new believers through home Bible studies, ministry meetings and quality time together outside of the meeting schedule.
  • Spending time with the foster children who live at a believer’s home.
  • Volunteering at a christian school.
  • Volunteering at a camp for teens.

Losing Loved Ones

Posted on July 30, 2020

Reasons to pray:
  • The families of the people who have lost loved ones recently, due to the virus or other illnesses need comfort from God.
  • The government in Mexico needs to deal not only with ever-climbing positive covid-19 cases, but also increasing drug-related violence, especially in Guanajuato.
  • We hope the believers will continue to have fellowship, even virtually, and grow though we cannot gather as normal.
Reasons to give thanks to God:
  • No believers from Irapuato or la Purísima have gotten sick.
  • Technology that allows us to keep in touch with most of the believers, even though most don't have wifi.
  • People who are willing to spend the time to prepare a message, record, edit and post messages for the benefit of other believers.

New Assembly

Posted on March 26, 2019

In January of 2019, a new assembly was established in La Purísima, Guanajuato. May the Lord use us to give helpful teaching about His assembly to the believers there.

Please pray for:

  • Growth on behalf of those who are saved in relation to conviction about gathering to the Lords name (with a future assembly in mind).
  • Salvation. Simply because people need to be saved.
  • For Gods glory, their fulfillment and a future testimony the Lords name.
  • Faithfulness. It is easy to get side tracked and distracted but when all is said and done, we want to be found faithful.
