We were commended to the full time work of the Lord in Mexico in September of 2011 by the assembly that meets in Arlington, WA, USA. Currently, we live in Santiago Ixcuintla, Nayarit, and continue to be involved in gospel outreach, Bible teaching, children’s work, and Bible studies with the local assembly here, in Tepic (an hour away), and other surrounding areas. In years past, we have been heavily involved in building projects and maintenance for a few assemblies throughout Mexico.
The Lord is forever gracious and have been encouraged to see the Lord’s hand working in our own lives and in the lives of many others. Please pray for us and the work of the Lord here in Mexico!
We have prayed earnestly about how we can best serve the Lord’s people and with his guidance and direction, over the last four years we have begun to plan for and work towards building a Discipleship and Trades School Program. With the help of the Lord we hope to invite two to three young Spanish speaking brothers in Christ from around Mexico to live with us for a few months to a year as we disciple them according to Mathew 28:19-20. We would be involving them in local outreach work, daily Bible study and meditating, and to give them an opportunity to learn a few trades (welding/fabrication, plumbing, electrical, framing and drywall, concrete work, etc.). With the Lord’s blessing and in His timing, we hope that this school will encourage and ground our young believers in God’s Word; giving them spiritual stability. We also hope that learning a trade will give them some economic stability in their work so that when they return to their homes they can be stable in their jobs, their families and in their local assemblies as well. We trust that the Lord will use them to take the gospel and New Testament doctrine to places we could could never reach alone.
