True Path Ministry Inc. and the Iglesia Getsemani church are close partners in proclaiming Christ and drawing people to the gospel in Galeana, NL, Mexico and the surrounding area. In the midst of the COVID-19 medical crisis (see COVID-19 a Menace to Mexico) many activities have been altered or halted, except for our construction projects. One bright spot is Pastor Reynaldo, Lulu and family’s home beside the church building. It is taking shape, plus, there are several new additions to the church building.
The steep lot beside the church has been transformed to a level building site where the parsonage will stand. The foundation, cinder block walls and concrete roof have all been completed. The exterior windows and doors have been ordered (they are made locally out of steel and glass). The floor in several rooms has been poured and the walls covered in stucco. They are using a pre-colored cement stucco so no additional painting will be required. There is much more to be done before it will be move-in ready, but all things considered, progress has been amazing.
A footnote, the master mason we are using is also the Christian pastor at a small village church in the area. It is amazing how the Lord places people like him in our path. Also, Pastor Reynaldo and other members of the church help with construction.
Next door, at the Iglesia Getsemani church building, the exterior is completed. The metal roof is finished, white pre-colored stucco covers the walls inside and out. The wiring is completed and there are light fixtures installed. One of the two downstairs rooms is completed. The one restroom has wooden stall doors, a double sink area with mirror and there is a baby diaper changing area. The latest additions: construction has begun on a second restroom, wooden curtain rods are being hand made and new tile was installed on the stage area.
There is still much to do, but the people of the Iglesia Getsemani church, Pastors Reynaldo and Lulu are so grateful. The church building is the nicest in town and it maybe the largest.
Reynaldo, Lulu, and kids- Abdiel, Areli and Elias are excited to see their new home going up. They have never had a house that was theirs, no more rent and no more moving.
The Lord is in this every step of the way. Thank you supporters for your prayers and financial donations! It has made a huge impact here for the glory of God!
