"Then the disciples cam and said to him, 'why do you speak to them in parables?' And he answered them, 'To you it has been give to know the secrets of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it has not been given."
This month we started up all the ministries at church again after summer break. Tuesdays we have a club for kids called "Agents of Christ". Every Tuesday afternoon the kids come to church for a time of games, crafts, songs, lessons and snacks. We are learning all about eight of the parables Jesus told and are applying them to our lives. God has blown all expectations out of the water in this ministry, we have tons of helpers and more than 20 kids each week.
Saturday evenings we started a youth group. There are about 8-10 youth each week. We play games, do ice breakers, sing praise songs, study God's word and have snacks. We are also practicing the "Everything" skit to present at the upcoming church anniversary. Please pray that this group would grow in number and the students would grow in their faith.
Friday nights we started back up the Women's bible study. About 15-20 women from church and the community come each week for this time of encouragement and accountability. This is one of my favorite parts of the week. Many of the new women are moms of the kids we are reaching in the kids' club.
Three days a week a few of us are visiting the families of the kids that came to Vacation Bible School this summer. Two new families are attending church weekly and doing bible studies with church leaders in their homes. God is at work here in La Mision!!
September is patriotic month here in Mexico. The 15-16 they celebrate their freedom from Spain. We were invited to a celebration at a sister church in Puerto Vallarta. It was a fun night of celebration with food, music, games and a message to remind us that our freedom as believers comes from Christ.
Thank you for your prayers! Please keep these ministries in your prayers. God is good and we see Him at work in so many lives here in Mexico.
