Over the past few days we’ve been busy holding crusades in which we are giving small gift packages to need Indian Children.
We ministered with music, clowns, preaching and even cutting hair in these needy places.
This article will mostly include missions photos because a picture can tell a thousand words.
After driving an hour and a half on some pretty rough dirt roads we made it to this Tzotzil Indian comuuntiy tucked away in the mountains.
This community is special because a Catholic Pries and his Congregation all have given their lives over to the Lord. (Catholicism in Mexico is filled with Idolatry and witchcraft so it’s not the same as in the United States). The new believers are still meeting in the Catholic church building only they took out all the graven images.
I was particularly touched as I saw the small children playing soccer with a soccer ball made out of candy. They’d never seen a piece of candy like this and since it was wrapped in paper they didn’t know what it was. Some of the larger kids played with the real ball that we included in their gift package.
We met in the public park area of the community and had over 600 people attend the event. I preached the crusade and was also touched when an older gentleman, among many gave his life to the Lord.
Tzemembolom, Chenahlo, Chiapas
This place is one of my personal projects since it’s one of the poorest places I visit and also one of the place making the most progess for the Lord.
We met in an adutorium and had 3 Churches attending in addition to the people of the community (around 500 people attended the event)
Although not a christian, the community leader let us use the auditorium at no cost and actually thanked me for the event once it was finished.
I’ll give you an update on San Juan Chamula a little later on plus I’ll have missions photos from Yajolon, Chiapas so if you haven’t signed up to get instant updates you’ll want to do so via the forms provided on this website.
