Two of our friends, Erran Miller and Mark Morrison, from Church of the Living Word in Hampton, Iowa came to visit us after seven years of absence.  They decided to come in spite of the warning not to visit Mexico.  We celebrated lots of time together with our youth and adults, worshiped together and had an awesome time together.  Our friendship is deeper now.  We are blessed.

Saludos amigos y hermanos en Cristo Jesús que apoyan de diferentes formas nuestro ministerio en Zapopan Jalisco. Le enviamos también un poco de información de lo que últimamente está sucediendo entre nosotros y lo que Dios está haciendo para que sigan orando por nosotros, anexamos también algunas fotos.

Con la ayuda de Dios el día 4 de febrero nos movimos a una nueva casa donde viviremos mi familia y yo, y donde tendremos nuestras reuniones para adorar a Dios y predicar la Palabra de Dios.

Hemos estado muy ocupados acondicionando la casa pues no estaba en las condiciones óptimas para habitarla, pues las personas anteriores la dejaron en muy malas condiciones.

Hemos tenido desde entonces nuestras tres primeras reuniones, y nos hemos sentido muy motivados y con más libertad de poder planear actividades para invitar personas nuevas y que no tengan ninguna restricción y problemas de acceso como en la casa anterior.

Estamos en el desarrollo de un plan para visitar a los vecinos para invitarlos a nuestra Iglesia. Queremos presentarles el mensaje de salvación a través de la fe en Cristo Jesús, y que aprendan a confiar solo en DIOS, pues la fe de muchos de las personas en el pueblo en el que vivimos esta puesta en todo tipo ídolos, santos, vírgenes y toda superstición antes que en el único Dios verdadero. Es maravilloso ver cómo la gente que asiste a nuestra iglesia compara su fe anterior con la fe basada en la Palabra y se llenan de gozo como esta fe verdadera les ha cambiado la vida y como Dios de muchas maneras se ha vuelto real, vivo y poderoso. Este evangelio transforma vidas y nos motiva a vivir un estilo de vida según Dios.

Les pedimos que oren por nosotros, para que Dios nos abra nuevas puertas para predicar su Palabra, para que Dios toque el corazón de las personas y con el poder de su Espíritu Santo derribe toda resistencia a recibir su bendita palabra. Y que el Señor añada como dice la biblia los que han de ser salvos. (Hechos 2.47). Pedimos oración por protección a nuestra integridad física al salir a las calles a predicar el evangelio. También para que Dios nos de valor y pasión para comunicar su mensaje, y que Dios manifieste su gloria y su poder ante cualquier oposición.

Les rogamos que oren por nosotros para que Dios traiga crecimiento numérico y espiritual a nuestra pequeña congregación, y que los asistan sean guardados fieles y librados de todo desánimo y tentación de parte del diablo para regresar atrás.

Les pedimos que oren para que Dios siga supliendo para la renta de la casa, por biblias pues solo tenemos 6 biblias y están ya muy usadas. Recursos para mandar imprimir publicidad de nuestra iglesia y que sea de buena calidad. Folletos apropiados para evangelizar.  Que Dios supla los recursos para poder financiar actividades para impactar con el evangelio a nuestra comunidad.

Reciban un saludo y nuestra oración y gratitud por todo su apoyo e interés por nuestro servicio y ministerio a Dios en el occidente de México.

Pastor Juan Vázquez 

Greetings friends and brothers in Christ Jesus who support our ministry in different ways in Zapopan Jalisco. We also send you some information about what is happening lately between us and what God is doing to continue praying for us, also we attach some pictures.

With the help of God on February 4 we moved to a new home where my family and I live, and where we have our meetings for worship and preaching the Word of God.

We have been busy renovating the house because he was not in the best conditions for habitation, as previous people left it in very bad condition.

We have had since our first three meetings, and we felt very motivated and more freedom to plan activities to invite new people and do not have any restrictions and access problems as in the previous house.

We are developing a plan to visit neighbors to invite them to our Church. We want to present the message of salvation through faith in Christ Jesus, and learn to trust in God, for faith of many people in the village where we live this type worn at all idols, saints, virgins and superstition rather than the one true God. It is wonderful to see how people attending our church compares his previous faith to faith based on the Word and are filled with joy as the true faith has changed their lives and how God in many ways has become real, alive and powerful . This gospel transforms lives and encourages us to live a godly life.

We ask you to pray for us, that God may open new doors to preach His Word, that God touch the hearts of the people and the power of his Holy Spirit knock down all resistance to receive his word blessed. And may the Lord add as the Bible says those who will be saved. (Acts 2:47). We ask our prayer for physical protection to take to the streets to preach the gospel integrity. Also for God to give us courage and passion to communicate your message, and God manifests his glory and power to any opposition.

We ask you to pray for us that God brings numerical and spiritual growth of our small congregation, and that the faithful attend are saved and delivered from all discouragement and temptation of the devil to return back.

We ask you to pray that God will continue supplying to the income of the house, as we have just 6 bibles bibles and are already widely used. Print advertising resources to send our church and be of good quality. Appropriate brochures to evangelize. God to supply the resources to fund activities to impact the gospel to our community.

Receive a greeting and prayer and gratitude for all your support and interest in our service and ministry to God in western Mexico.

Spirit of Faith Youth

Our youth at Spirit of Faith are visiting hospitals to feed the hungry and share the Gospel.  They collected money and made sandwiches and distributed some materials to introduce Christ.  it was raining and we were not allowed to approach the door, but people came and formed a line and we gave them food.  Also many of them share the suffering their loved ones are going through so we prayed we them.  God loves people through our youth.

It was dark and cold, But that did not stop them!  Their task was fulfilled!
