True Path Ministry Inc. missionaries Stephen and Tonyia Williams were at the Sunday morning service on February 16th at the White Rock Christian Fellowship Church in Bandera, Texas. Stephen delivered the message using PowerPoint slides to emphasize his points and to show some of TPM’s work in Mexico.(Hear his sermon from the White Rock Christian Fellowship Church website at: http://www.whiterockcm.org/teachings/2020/021620serm.mp3)
Two members of the Church went to Mexico on a short-term mission trip during the Christmas season. Robert and son Zachary Lyman were part of a group from various churches and Texas towns who helped deliver gifts in rural Northern Mexico (see http://truepathministry.com/news/ for stories about the Christmas giving tour). After their adventures they worked with Pastor Bob Morris to invite TPM to speak at their church.
Stephen’s sermon focused on three of the many ways God talks to us. One way God uses is nature to remind us who He is. The Bible says “For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse” (Romans 1:20 ESV). In rural northern Mexico TPM is surrounded by majestic mountains. God’s majesty is on full display through the natural environment there.
Another way our Lord talks with us is through His word, the Holy Bible. “For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart” (Hebrews 4:12 ESV). TPM shares the word in many ways in the Galeana, NL, Mexico area.
And finally, the Lord uses His Holy Spirit to communicate with us. The Bible says, “In him you also, when you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation, and believed in him, were sealed with the promised Holy Spirit,” Ephesians 1:13 And through the Holy Spirit we were given gifts, “A spiritual gift is given to each of us so we can help each other (1 Corinthians 12:7 NLT). TPM has been blessed to work with many people who are using their spiritual gifts with TPM.
The Lord is working through TPM to spread His gospel and we are humbled and honored to be a small park of His work. Praise Jesus!
