Dear MMI friends. Receive my greetings and the greeting of our congregations as we prepare ourselves to start our Summer activities. Our pastors and their teams will start VBS this days. All the materials have been sent to Rio Bravo and Zapopan.

At the same time Pastor Enrique will be traveling to Minneapolis Area for a few days. He will attend the Board of Trustees meeting. Then he will spend a few days visiting friends and churches. As he travels back, he will attend the Texas District Convention. He will be a keynote Speaker and have a breakout. Then he will move on to Monterrey.

July Update from Family of God

“Buenas Nuevas del mes de Julio”
Dios derrame sus bendiciones en abundancia a todas las personas que oran y apoyan nuestra pequeña iglesia en Zapopan Jalisco.
El 14 de Julio iniciamos un nuevo grupo de estudio bíblico en la casa de una familia que asiste a nuestra iglesia. Dios nos bendijo con una asistencia de 18 adultos y jóvenes, y 6 niños. En nuestra reunión asistió una mujer de 51 años llamada Estela con cáncer en todo su cuerpo y desahuciada por los médicos, ella se mostró muy agradecida y feliz por las oraciones que hicimos por ella.
Dios ha bendecido nuestras reuniones dominicales y de entre semana cada vez con una mejor asistencia y personas nuevas.
Les rogamos de sus oraciones para que Dios siga abriéndonos puertas y conocer nuevas personas para comunicarles el Evangelio que transforma vidas y se integren a nuestra iglesia. También para que Dios los afirme en su fe y en fidelidad a Dios a su iglesia.
Saludos y un fuerte abrazo.
Pastor Juan Vazquez.

June Update from Family of God

Saludos amigos y hermanos que oran y apoyan nuestro ministerio en Zapopan Jalisco, que el amor y las bendiciones de Dios sean con cada uno de ustedes.

El mes de junio celebramos el día del Padre en nuestra pequeña comunidad. Fue una celebración muy maravillosa pues fue una gran oportunidad de compartir el mensaje del amor de Dios nuestro Padre Celestial con todas las personas que nos visitaron.

Tuvimos canciones especiales a los padres, alabanzas llenas de gozo a nuestro Dios, oramos por ellos, los jóvenes y niños les dieron palabras de gratitud a sus padres. Después de nuestro tiempo de adoración tuvimos una cena especial. Las personas que nos visitaron se impactaron mucho con nuestra reunión. Oramos que la semilla de la Palabra de Dios sembrada de fruto en sus corazones.

Les pedimos que oren por los padres de algunos de nuestros jóvenes que no asisten a nuestra iglesia, y también por algunos de nuestros jóvenes y niños a quienes su padre los abandonó y viven con tristeza en sus corazones, para que se sientan amados y abrazados por Dios.

Sigan orando por nuestro ministerio para que en cada  evento que hagamos Dios sea predicado, glorificado y que haya fruto.

Les bendigo en el nombre de nuestro Padre Celestial en quien toma nombre toda familia en la tierra.

Pastor Juan Vázquez.

July Update from Good Shepherd

Queridos hnos pues en este mes con excepción de un domingo tuvimos nuestras reuniones habituales los domingo a las 10 am y los miércoles a las 7 pm gracias a Dios los miércoles estamos teniendo muy buena asistencia de niños y adulto no asi el domingo pero estamos trabajando para convencer a los fieles que el el domingo es el dia del Señor, en este mes estuvimos en aniversario de ordenación del Rev. Enrique Estrada el cual fue una gran bendición pues reiteramos el apoyo incondicional de mmi, les pido de sus oraciones pues hemos estado pasando pos mucha enfermedad en los últimos días y eso daña mucho nuestro rendimiento en muchos aspectos que Dios no sane, seguir orando por las personas pues es difícil mantener a la gente en la búsqueda de santidad pues en mexico el pecado es muy tentador para las personas, también por las despensas, escuelas bíblicas y necesidades de las iglesia. Dios les bendiga

Dear Brothers as this month with the exception of a Sunday we had our regular meetings on Sundays at 10 am and Wednesdays at 7 pm thank God every Wednesday we are taking very good care of children and adults not so Sunday but we are working to convince the faithful that Sunday is the Lord’s day, in this month we were in anniversary of ordination of Rev. Enrique Estrada which was a blessing because we reiterate the unconditional support of MMI, I ask your prayers as we have been going after much illness in recent days and that much harm our performance in many ways that God does not heal, continue to pray for the people it is difficult to keep people in the pursuit of holiness in mexico because sin is very tempting for people, also pantries, Bible schools and needs of the church.

On June 28th I celebrated 30 years of serving God as an ordained minister.  They have been years of a great deal of experiences of success and challenges. Thank God I can rejoice in the outcome. After many days of preparations the gathering took place. I had visitors from several places from the metro area and beyond. Our main messenger for the night was Pastor Tom Lovan from Morningside Lutheran Church and Director of the Asian Ministries. It was a real honor to count with his participation and attendance. I had several pastors who in one way or another were participants on my ministry along the years. I received letters from Pastor Bill Bruggeman, from Pastor Bruce Nelson, and Barb Dejonge Overline. We showed three video messages. One from Pastor Mark Vander-Tuig, LCMC Service Coordinator, Kip Tyler Chair of the LCMC BOT, and from Pastor Juan Vazquez from Family of God Lutheran Church in Zapopan Jalisco. And the presence of our pastor in Rio Bravo Victor Barbosa. Also I was surrounded by friends and members of our congregations too.

Make out if this gathering a historic meeting. There were several recognitions for the congregations and pastors. In addition to that one of my members in my previous ministry from Saltillo Coahuila, Professor Gerardo Laguna a great Musician came to perform a few songs with another person using a piano and a Clarinet. As we ended we offer a great banquet to the people present. It was a magic evening and I give honor and Glory to our King Jesus.
