It’s now been four months since the team moved here to Mexico City and God has shown himself to be so faithful, generous, and good to all of us here. There are now 6 on the team (we’ve had short-term staff that come and go), and an incredible thing is that of the 6 team members, we have 5 countries represented! God truly is uniting the nations with Mexico!
Over these past few months, we have seen miracles in our midst! One huge blessing that God really came through with was in placing a fellow brother in our path to rent us an apartment: a furnished place with 3 bedrooms, 2 full baths, an unlimited time limit, very accessible rent, and so much more! This has been such an answer to prayer, and we’ve been so blessed to have a place of our “own” to come home to. God has also been working in a mighty way through the ministries here in the City (read team members’ blogs to follow specific stories and updates), and we are thankful to have been able to experience God’s transforming power in going out to the youth who live on the streets. God’s word is the key to change and we’ve been able to take that to the streets in practical and creative ways, through teachings, crafts, medical care, etc. This has also been something we’ve been applying within the prostitution ministry very recently, for example in hanging posters with key verse “pull-offs” in target areas. We experienced how God’s word is penetrating hearts like when after a poster was hung, a few minutes later, team members passed by and saw a worker bent over, crying and praying. We hope and pray that God will continue to touch hearts through this simple act, and place the right people in our paths to come into contact with and help guide down the right path.
We appreciate all the prayers and support sent our way. During this time, we’ve been able to experience being God’s presence here in this immense city through prayer and intercession, and partnership with the local Church Body.
