It has been a very special week here in Oaxaca and God has answered many prayers. Four new AMO Trainers for Mexico were certified by Chrysalis International, represented by Cristina Inchaustegui, Director of AMO in Latin America. We thank all of you who have prayed for this over the past year.
New trainers for the AMO Program are important because many more children – thousands more over time – will be educated and inspired by God’s Word and Spirit in ways that nurture the potential God has placed in each one. Children and parents, both, are discipled.
During the week Carmen, mother of two, shared with our group how God used her two children to save her marriage. In the midst of the storm, Carmen joined her children in their AMO classes. Reading, reasoning with God’s Word, listening to classic literature like Heidi, and creating art, right alongside the children, allowed God to heal her heart and give new vision for her marriage. At home, the children literally counselled their parents with the biblical principles they learned in AMO. Over time, the couple reconciled and now focus their energies on the family and the work of the church. AMO teachers trained by well prepared AMO Trainers set the stage for this healing.
Elizabeth Bermudez, Esther Suarez, Elizabeth Aguilar, each of Oaxaca, and Gloria Viveros of Mexico City, have all worked and studied hard with Dr. Elizabeth Youmans, and others, over the past year to become certified trainers of Biblical Foundations for Christian Education and the AMO® Program. We are excited to walk together with them in God’s calling for AMO in Mexico.
Each of these trainers are volunteers. If you would like to help them get started with the equipment they need to train (computer, projector, globe, Timeline, art supplies, and other expenses) call Chris McReynolds at (830) 719-5812 or write firstname.lastname@example.org.
We also want to ask you to pray for us as we identify future trainer candidates. We are praying that another group of AMO trainers can be certified for Mexico in 2017.
Thank you for your prayers!
