VBS Mexico 2023 – A BIG HIT!

True Path Ministry and the Central Cristiano Getsemani church in Galeana teamed up recently to take vacation Bible school to four remote mountain villages in the state of Nuevo Leon, Mexico. The group was in: La Presita, July 31; Refugio, August 1; Canoas, August 2; and Purisima, August 4.

Each day a group of enthusiastic adult and youth volunteers loaded up from Galeana and climbed in the TPM one-ton van, along with gifts, musical instruments and special supplies. Travel always included a rough one hour or more ride on roads up and down steep mountains, often clinging to the edge of cliffs just to get to the isolated villages. But it was well worth it for all involved!

The VBS event was a welcome summer break for the children. It was a time to learn more about Jesus and have some fun. The kids enjoyed singing, games, craft projects, gifts and candy. The local pastor at each of the locations were given a “blessing bag” filled with essentials. In some locations families got clothing that was donated.

Because of the cost, most of these children seldom get to travel outside their villages or have visitors. Gas is well over the equivalent of four dollars per gallon in Mexico.

God has greatly blessed this ministry serving Mexico’s rural, often forgotten areas. The blessings extend powerfully to the givers as much as to the receivers. It is a privilege to serve in Christ’s mighty name! “For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.” Mark 10:45 (ESV)
