What we are Hearing

The week before Christmas, we conducted the last AMO® apprenticeship of the year in Cunduacán, Tabasco, making a total of nine carried out in various parts of México in 2014. We’ve received overwhelming affirmations of God working through these five-day courses and the children’s programs that are resulting.

At least, 800 children are being served, families are being blessed, and churches are gaining new vision for education and discipleship. We are thankful to God for the work He is doing through this ministry.

The following are unsolicited comments, about AMO®, that we’ve had the privilege of receiving this year:

“I’ve been to a lot of trainings about education but none like this,”

~ commended Thelma Martinez, grandmother and long-time Christian educator, Villahermosa, Tabasco, México

“I came (to the apprenticeship) thinking I was just going to learn a children’s program, but my life has been changed!”

~  Chevy Cruz, father of one, missionary, Oaxaca, Oaxaca, México

“We are accustomed to being led and leading others…it takes time and effort for us to develop a habit of reflecting and reasoning in Christ to make sound decisions.”  

~  Abimael Borbolla, father of two, Pastor at Nueva Vida Church, Oaxaca, Oaxaca, México

“We can’t adequately lead our children to places we’ve never been. This is a beautiful time for us as teachers to experience renewal and follow the Spirit and Word of God into areas we haven’t been before.”

~  Alejandro Melgoza Sanchez, father of three, Pastor at Casa de Gloria Church, Pátzcuaro, Michoacán, México

“In the beginning, the children’s lessons seemed to end up everywhere, except in their notebooks. Now, the children are placing their work in its proper place and they are relating prior lessons with the one they just learned.” 

~  Veronica Bedolla Garcia, mother of three, Pátzcuaro, Michoacán

“We began working with the children using AMO and the parents… seeing transformation and joy…asked ‘what is going on?’ We then started a class for the parents.”

~ Arturo Rodriguez, father of three, México City

“AMO has served me tremendously, not just with my classes, but in my personal life as well.”

~ Priscila Zeda Ceja, Sunday school teacher, Rios de Agua Viva Church, México City

“AMO has been a wonderful help to me, foremost, with my family…it concerns me when I hear the way my nieces and nephews speak.”

~ Veronica Garcia, aunt and Sunday school teacher, Oaxaca, Oaxaca

“This program has helped me in being a better teacher and, since I love literature, it has confirmed my desire to be a writer!”

~ Yediael Borbolla, 16 years old, Nueva Vida Church, Oaxaca, Oaxaca

“I began working with children simply because I loved them. Now I have good foundations to work with them from.”

~ Ruth Pérez Silvestre, teenage teacher at Nueva Vida Church, Oaxaca, Oaxaca

God bless each of you and your families in 2015. Please, contact us anytime for more information about what God is doing in México through AMO® México. We also invite your prayers and financial support in this New Year.
