A Sunday in San Francisco, NL, Mexico
True Path Ministry along with Galeana Evangelist Ramiro Garcia went to San Francisco, a small village several miles north of Galeana on Sunday, August 25th. It is situated at the base of a 12,000 foot mountain named Potosi. Pastor Saul had heard we had some reading glasses and wanted us to come to his church and offer them to his congregation. We were set to be at his first service at 10:30 a.m., normally a small Bible study group. He said it would be good if Evangelist Ramiro would preach as he was hoping to build up the Sunday morning group.
Word must have gotten around because the Church building filled with worshipers. Ramiro ‘s spirit-filled sermon prompted raised hands and lots of shouts of “amen” and “hallelujah.” After the service we set up our glasses table at the back of the church and began to help those crowded around select the right reading spectacles. All of our glasses were given out. We also had five bags of clothes we spread on the floor and bags to contain them. They were quickly snatched up by the many families attending the service.
Tonyia handed out small bags to the children with simple items like bubbles and a few pieces of candy. The kids were excited and grateful to get the unexpected gifts. Pastor Saul told us over coffee afterward he was very happy with the number of people who came, Ramiro’s sermon and the gifts, glasses and clothes True Path Ministry brought were a blessing. But most of all that Christ was honored and glorified.
“Then the righteous will answer him, “Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’ “The King will reply, ‘I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.” Matthew 25: 37-40
It is so humbling to be used by our Lord to show his love to others! It is supporters like you who make it possible for us to continue. Thank you for your support in all forms.
