This past week Sept 22 – 25 . . .
Phil travelled with Dan to Tampico in the north of Mexico.
They had a really good time connecting with the Pastors, churches and groups that are studying the SEAN material in Tampico, traveling in the states of Tamaulipas and a small town in the northern part of Veracruz, Mexico.
It is so amazing to visit places where groups are excited about studying God’s Word. Seeing and hearing testimonies of what God is doing, how their knowledge and understanding of the Bible is transforming their lives – words cannot fully explain. Below are some photos from the trip.
This older man in the photo to the right gave testimony to the benefit of studying with his group. He is blind and told us how having spent over 60 years of attending church religiously, he learned nothing. Now, being part of this group, he studies with his wife and their lives are filled with joy to learn more and more about Jesus. Pastor Jaime standing behind him leads this group and travels over 2 hours from his home in Tampico over very rough roads to minister at his church in Paso Real for 3 days each weekend.
Their travels took them to a very small church where they were able to encourage the people. Below is a video of the building they currently meet in and the work they have started on building a church. They are looking for assistance to be able to finish the work.
Another 2 groups study in Tampico under the direction of Pastor Bernardo. The more advanced group is in the Second Level of the Seminary Program and the other group is almost finished the First Level.
We are so grateful for these groups studying. Our mission organization World Partners has a fund that we use to help the students with half the cost of the materials for the Seminary Program. This fund is getting low and we ask that you consider a contribution of any amount to help students. Go to Project Leadership Development for more information and how you can make a financial contribution.
Here are a few more pictures from the trip, scroll over for caption.
We made it to the Beach in Madero which is really part of Tampico. It was so hot we could only stay for an hour or so and walk the pier.
