May God bless you, it is a pleasure to write to you...
I want to share with you that it has been five weeks since the start of the sixth course of the “School of Leadership and Missions El Camino”. Weeks in which the young people who attended has been working hard. These came from five different states of the republic. We are seeing the progress each has made in different areas. I confess that we have much to learn and these months only will be a push to get momentum to throw them in the wind of the Spirit and to the study of the Holy Scriptures, flight that will take the time of a lifetime. Along with them are with us our sisters Ana Alicia Ramos and Alma Rosa Fonseca from the State of Jalisco, who have been teaching some subjects, and are of great support to the students and to the brethren of the different missions. We have reached the end of the first course of classes, I just started the second which will cover another three, out of the eight total that will be taught until the end of this school. Therefore I ask your prayers for the students, and for the pastors and teachers in charge of this institution that we may build a good foundation for the edification of the ministry of these brave men and women.
“Expect great things for God, attempt great things for God” were two messages that the father of modern missions (William Carey) preached, after which he was sent as the first missionary to India, where he translated the Bible into the local language, which then would translate into 44 languages and dialects, leading to preaching the gospel in many places. Great men like Augustine (the greatest theologian in the history after the apostle Paul), Polycarp (martyred bishop of Smyrna) John Huss (reformer, and martyr), John Wycliffe (translator of the Bible into English), John and Charles Wesley (preachers shining with the power of the Spirit along with George Whitefield), Martin Luther (who helped to reform the church which was lost in forests and mountains of paganism). And many other men of God who dared to make a difference and leaving a mark on the history and making changes invaluable to us that follow them.
May we achieve something today, that our minutes, hours, work and effort might not be wasted. Let us dare to believe God and discover that He is closer than we think, ready to help us fulfill great commission that He Himself has given us. That at the end of our race we may say like the Apostle Paul “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Finally, there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give to me on that Day....” 2 Timothy 4:7
We give God the glory, because on February 25 we celebrated in Las Milpas the second meeting of “Torches of the Gospel” which is formed by the youth groups of seven churches of the region and other churches come as well to visit. The Lord spoke to us about being thankful for His many blessings that he bestows upon us and to enjoy them and not to get to involved on circumstances that are not pleasing to Him. The preacher was a sister in a wheelchair. What a great blessing, we had a manifestation of the Holy Spirit touching many young people’s lives in a powerful and supernatural way. Thank you God, you are good and precious!!!!!
Thank you for your prayers and support.... for the literature that was provided that is being such a blessing to the young ministers at the Bible school. “The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Spirit be with you all. Amen. (2 Corinthians 13:14)
