Martin, Stephen and Pastor Reynaldo recently checked-out the location where Getsemani will one day be located. Pastor Reynaldo currently rents a small building for church services, but has big plans for the future. The property the church has purchased is up on a hill east of town overlooking Galeana. Once built it would be seen and heard all around the area. Please pray the Lord will touch hearts for the funds to build this church.
We (the True Path Ministry Mexico team – Martin, Anna, Genesis, Tonyia and Stephen) learned about the new building plan when we hosted the Pastor and his family for a meal on Wednesday night May 25. Joining us at the table were Pastor Reynoldo, wife Lourdes, children Arele age 5, Jose age 8 and Elias 10 months. Another member of his congregation, Yessi and her two small children, also ate with us. She has extensive experience teaching children and wants to be involved as we develop weekly programs at Casa Cristana El Alfarero.
Pastor Reynoldo has a number of young families in his growing church. Among his duties as a pastor he has developed specific skills as a marriage counselor. He has been a pastor eight years and five of those he has been working with couples to strengthen marriages. He was also pleased to hear we were developing plans to work with the children in the community.
We discussed having a weekly Christian club for children. It would be a fun time that would include games, life skills and Bible study. Yessi who has worked with similar programs over the past 13 years believes the idea has merit and agreed to help. We will all pray about the idea and pursue an outline detailing what would be involved. If the Lord is in it we’ll overcome any barriers that stand in the way.
