Today we had the pleasure of meeting the Pastor of a village only one hour outside of Galeana (Palmito). Pastor
Ruben is 85 years old and still spreading the Gospel. He invited True Path Ministry and Pastor Rey to his one room rock church that has been vacant for 20 years.
Stephen, Tonyia, Pastor Rey, Pastora Berenice, Edith, Sandra, Mari, their families and I all pitched in to help fill the church. Stephen and Pastor Rey created benches in the empty building from old lumber and cinderblocks.
As services began, LuLu, Sandra, Mari, Edith, and Pastora Berenice led the church family in song. Pastor Rey preached an excellent sermon on “all you need is Christ.” The children were treated to their own special worship service led by Pastora Berenice and Edith. They loved singing, dancing, and learning a bible verse.
After services were over, we brought out clothing for all ages and gave the children gift bags of toys, Christian literature, and personal care items. The children immediately began playing with their toys.
After today it is obvious that there are many projects that True Path Ministry could use help with…There are many people in need here in Nuevo Leon, Mexico. However, we have several special projects to help the local Pastors and some of the families that are in extreme need. Here is a partial list:
- Pastor Ruben’s church in Palmito-The church building has been vacant for 20 years. It needs: glass put into the windows; inside walls need stucco; inside walls needs repainting; lighting needs to be installed.
- Pastor Santigo’s church in Refugio-This is a very simple wood slat building. It is aging too. It needs: siding repairs; inside wall repair; new concrete on certain areas of the floor.
- Pastora Benerice’s church in San Francisco-This is also a very old building. It needs: a working bathroom with a shower; lighting.
- Family with no running water—This family needs a water storage tank installed, and needs a fully functional bathroom with a shower.
True Path Ministry would like to request help in whatever form you feel led to give. If you would like to come to Nuevo Leon to help with the labor, we would welcome you.
Until next time, Gloria a Dios and Dios de Bendiga/Glory to God and God Bless You.
