True Path Ministry (TPM) and the Iglesia Getsemani Church in Galeana, NL, Mexico are close partners sharing the love of Christ. They have taken on three big construction projects in addition to ongoing monthly initiatives, such as the Marcos 10:14 Kids Club and church responsibilities. We ask for your prayers and if the Lord is leading you to donate, a check can be mailed to: 1420 Mosley Rd, Ennis Tx 75119 or by going to the “Support” page on our website and push the donate button.
The three biggest construction projects are:
1) constructing a new church building in the desert village Hidiondilla;
2) constructing a new church building in the mountain village Purisima; and
3) adding a bathroom and kitchen area to the home of a single mom raising three children in Galeana.
In Hidiondilla, the Centro Cristiano Maranatha church, lead by Pastor Carlos and wife Jenny, is a young and growing church. It is in a small desert community near large scale tomato farms. When complete the new building will be 1,800+ square foot and will replace a small existing structure made from scrap materials. Construction has gone well; the walls are up and it is time to pour the concrete for the floor. The metal roof, windows, doors, wiring and plumbing will come after the floor is complete. Many from the church contribute their labor to this project. (see related: Good Construction Progress in Hindiondilla ; A New Church in Hidiondilla, NL, Mexico).
In Purisima, the existing tiny church building is in disrepair, is on borrowed property and is too small. The long-term pastor Lebardo recently passed away and his final wish was that a new permanent building be constructed. Iglesia Getsemani, Pastors Reynaldo and Lourdes, go there to preach monthly and a member of Lebardo’s family plans to move there as the full-time minister. The church has a clear land title where the new structure will be located. The small, remote mountain community is excited about a new building. The footings for the wall area have been started, but we are praying for more funding to complete the 1,400 square foot place of worship (see relate: Presents in Purisima)
In Galeana, construction is underway to build a kitchen and bathroom for a single mom who is raising three children on her own. This mother is very involved with TPM and Iglesia Getsemani. She recently acquired a tiny unfinished concrete structure and lives there without the many conveniences we often take for granted. The team has already rebuilt much of the roof area and completed electrical wiring. The wall area and new roof over the additional space have been roughed in. But stucco, plumbing and additional wiring are needed to complete the project.
TPM and Iglesia Getsemani are grateful for the ongoing assistance from individual and church supporters. It keeps us serving Christ in the way He leads us, in this part of Mexico. With you, and under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, we have accomplished much over the past few years. We are honored to continue working with our brothers and sisters in Mexico to Glorify Jesus! But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. Matthew 6:33 (ESV)
