Kid Fun for Jesus in San Ildefonso
February 11, 2023, True Path Ministry along with a team from Iglesia Getsemani traveled high into the mountains of Mexico. The early morning was cold, in the 20s, but soon warmed to the mid-50s. The travel was mountainous and dirty, rain is needed here. Our destination was northwest to a small remote town named San Ildefonso. The drive took us 2 hours to travel 28 miles.
Traveling to these remote villages can be treacherous but it is always an encouragement to our hearts and the people we encounter. The church soon filled with children and their moms. Most of the men were working so we decided to have a kids only program.
Teacher Ana opened with a word of prayer, followed by songs, games and a Bible lesson. The Bible lesson taught the children about being a friend at all times even during adversity – Proverbs 17:17. Once the lesson was complete, we all chipped in and helped the children complete their art project.
We then lined the children up by ages and gender. If the child was under the age of 4, they received a bag full of toys and Christian tract. Each school age child received a backpack full of school supplies, a gift, and a Christian tract. The children were grateful and content.
A pile of donated clothes was scattered at the back of the church and the women did not waste any time grabbing what they wanted. We gave blankets to the pastor’s wife to distribute to the church families. The pastor’s family fed our group before we departed on our long journey home.
The need for spiritual food and physical support is great in Mexico, not only to share the Love of Jesus but to encourage them in their faith. Many of these remote villages never receive visitors and to know that like-minded Christians will come not only blesses them, but in turn we receive a blessing.
Please be in prayer for this ministry, which God began. We covet your prayers!
Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. (Galatians 6:9 NIV)
