TRIP TO MEXICO APRIL 26 TO MAY 7, 2012
I would like to share this report about what God did during the missionary trip to Sinaloa and Jalisco from April 26 to May 7, 2012. See photos and videos.
A team of three of us went which included Oleg and Kirill from Light to the World Church in Seattle. These missionaries preached in all the churches and missions we are connected to in Mexico.
There was much fruit in all the services and God poured down His presence. There were testimonies about how God broke the chains of the oppressed, restored marriages, and filled many with His Holy Spirit.
Our trip began in Las Milpas, Sinaloa with missionaries Salvador and Carmen Meza. We saw the growth of that mission. There are many new Christians and they are hungry for God.
On April 28 we attended the sixth graduation of the Bible institute there and six students graduated. Some of them will return to be send out to churches and missions in Sinaloa and Jalisco for six weeks.
We were also present on May 5 on the graduation of the Bible institute in Puerta de la Vega, Jalisco with pastor Abraham and Lidia Zepeda. In that place there were twelve students who had already completed their classes and also had just returned from a mission trip of three months. Two of them were sent to the country of Peru and had a great missionary experience by traveling all over the country. Two more were in Sinaloa and helped there as teachers and the rest were sent to San Antonio, Pacana, Buenavista, Ayutla, Cuisillos and La Vega, all of these in the state of Jalisco.
I was really impressed by these brave twenty men and women of God. The testimonies I heard were powerful and we celebrated the faithfulness of God. They told of healings of cancer, also of how they prayed for a person who was terminally ill and how God healed her, and how many people accepted Jesus as their Savior and Lord. Both institutes have the same intensive program of theory with classes like: Theology, Evangelism, Compared Religions, Daniel and Revelations, Church Growth, etc. This is learned during the day and in the afternoons and weekends they practice it at churches, missions and cell groups. When they are sent to the mission, for six weeks or for three months, they preach, disciple, evangelize and win many souls. Many churches have been planted and many others have grown thanks to this effort.
In ECEA, we are preparing for an explosion of revival in Mexico and thousands of souls will come to Christ and from Mexico many missionaries will go to the nations. There are many candidates for missionaries. Our vision and desire is to continue to work with the institutes, work with missionaries, coordinate mission trips, establish churches, promote church growth and to encourage those being called by God to take their place in the body of Christ and do the will of God for their lives. Many are called but few are chosen.
