A Christian team from the Iglesia Getsemani Church and True Path Ministry (TPM) held a special kid’s day on September 24th in Santa Rosa, NL, Mexico. It is a small remote village in a pecan tree covered canyon between towering mountains. Traveling with TPM missionaries Stephen and Tonyia Williams was Hope Loveless from Texas, who is on her third short-term mission trip to the area.
It was a day dedicated to teaching the children the love of Christ through prayer, songs, games, a Bible lesson and a gift. About 25 local kid’s enjoyed the event. Each one learned and recited a Bible verse; “The Lord is on my side; I will not fear. What can man do to me?” Psalms 118:6.
It was the first time the team had traveled to the village. Isabel, a local teacher related to pastor Celestino and wife Anastasia, spoke good English and helped the Texans communicate better.
Travel was challenging with the addition of heavy rain during sections of the intense unpaved mountain road as we returned to Galeana. But it was well worth the effort to serve the Lord with our Christian friends in Santa Rosa.
For whatever things were written before were written for our learning, that we through the patience and comfort of the Scriptures might have hope. Romans 15:4 (NKJV).
