DECEMBER 13-20, 2021
(Border Status: Open, Vaccine Not Required)
December 13-20, 2021 we will partner with churches in the suburbs of Mexico City. Our evangelistic outreaches will target youth and children as well as the poor communities that are in desperate need of help and salvation. The Lord connected us with wonderful partners whose vision for evangelism is aligned with ours. The main church Iglesia De Cristo in a poor suburb of Mexico City is reaching a community of 170,00 people. This multigenerational congregation led by Pastor Fernando has been highly active and creative in helping meet the needs of the poor communities and reach the young and the old with the Gospel message. Even the local government has recognized their efforts and has given them the “green light” in the community.
