True Path Ministry Inc. continues to serve Christ through its work in Mexico. In the last few months we have helped families during this trying time and have made major strides with supported construction projects.
The international COVID-19 pandemic has hit hard in Mexico including around Galeana where True Path Ministry (TPM) bases its operations. As of July 3rd there were 238,511 reported cases nationwide, 5,090 of those cases in Nuevo Leon and 51 in Galeana. Local residents are under a stay-at-home order and no large gatherings are allowed, including Church services.
Pastors Reynaldo, Lulu and evangelist Ramiro continue to serve the Lord during this difficult time. They are ministering to people in their homes, taking care of TPM business (while Missionaries Stephen and Tonyia Williams are in Texas) and related construction projects.
There has been substantial progress on the Iglesia Getsemani church building this year. All the exterior walls are now covered with a final layer of white colored stucco. The roof has been completed, thanks to a short-term missionary group who came in March (see Roof Finished & Restroom Complete at Getsemani Church). One of the two lower rooms was completed with a concrete floor, window, door, storage shelves and white stucco interior walls. It will be used for storage for now, but will easily convert to other uses later.
Work has begun on the parsonage. The building site has been leveled, which was a major effort because it is located beside the church building on the side of a rocky mountain. The footings have been cut in bedrock and wall support cement poured. The concrete block wall construction has begun. Reynaldo, Lulu and their three kids have all pitched in to help, in addition to paid skilled labor. Pastor Rey and family are very excited and thankful that they will soon have their own home.
Activities at our weekly Marcos 10:14 kids club meetings had to be suspended until we get the go-ahead from officials. We will discuss how to resume club meetings once we are able.
Missionaries Stephen and Tonyia Williams are are in the USA during the COVID-19 crisis and are blessed to have Pastors Reynaldo and Lulu to oversee TPM in Mexico. “We are in regular contact with Pastor Rey by phone and on occasion have used facetime to see him and the family. We enjoyed seeing them but we very much miss being there in person,” said Stephen.
TPM wants to thank you for your continued prayers and financial. Pray for the people in Mexico who are especially struggling during this time and for the Lord’s favor to end this plague soon. God bless.
Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 (NKJV)
