Perla and her four children received a new home last week in Reynosa, Mexico. They were so happy and grateful. As a team, we were so humbled. God used our team and volunteers working together in harmony, peace, and displaying His love toward one another.
Earlier in the week, part of our group visited with Lupita. Her family received a house we built in 2003. Lupita shared that she prays daily for each person on the team who built her house. Her belief in the power of prayer and her dedication to the Lord stands as a powerful witness to the people of Reynosa, and to our team. We also had the opportunity to pass about Bibles and food to people in the community. We then invited them to our big fiesta on Thursday. We showed an evangelical video, and it was easy to see God at work. Many were moved by the presentation and fellowship.
Our time in Reynosa taught us thankfulness. We are all thankful for God’s perfect plan. He brought a team of people together with a variety of skills and abilities. He blessed our time and ministry. One major blessing in our partnership with Faith Ministries is the chance to go back year after year and see the community change. We had the opportunity to meet a new young pastor named Carlos Santos. He worked with us to meet community members and invite them to church. Reynosa can be a difficult community to work in because of the limited resources available. Our hope is to return in a year and see Pastor Santos’ ministry thriving. We are very thankful for our SPC family. Your prayers and support for this ministry and our trip were a blessing to us and the community we served. May God continue to work in and bless Reynosa.
Andre Crouch wrote a song with words “How can I say thanks for all the things you have done for me.” The words seem so inadequate, yet all we can say is “thank you, Lord!”
