True Path Ministry Inc. is helping a church start construction on a new building in Hidiondilla, NL, Mexico. The congregation currently meets in a makeshift flimsy structure assembled with scrap materials and a dirt floor. Pastor Carlos and wife Jenny are the young couple who are the founders of the small church in the rural desert village. They are on fire for the Lord and eager to extend the love of Christ to everyone in the area.
The plan is to construct a new about 1,800 square foot building on the existing lot the congregation owns. The walls will be concrete block with a sheet metal roof. TPM gave the go ahead with initial funding for the project just after the New Year. A big load of concrete blocks and other building supplies have now been delivered and construction has begun. The bulk of the work will be done by members of the church and other volunteers.
TPM and the Iglesia Getsemani Church from Galeana were humbled and honored to be part of the dedication of the Centro Cristiano Maranatha Church back in July (see A New Church in Hidiondilla, NL, Mexico.). It was a tremendously uplifting experience to witness the group of Christians gathered and committing to sharing the love of Christ with their area. “I have been in magnificent cathedrals, but of all the worship places I have experienced none was better than the one where we visited today,” said Jim Jones who was visiting from Texas. We returned to the church on December 18th to give them Christmas gifts (see Joy in Hidiondilla).
The pastor and members are grateful to the Lord for answering their prayers. TPM is proud to be a part of this upstart church. Your continued prayers and financial gifts will keep this project moving. Thank you for your support.
Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord. (Romans 12:11 NIV)
