Hello from Tabasco! We are here in the southeast of Mexico carrying out AMO® trainings and working with parents, congregations, and seminary students to focus on education that heals families and nations.
So far, we have had an AMO® training in Comalcalco and have shared biblical worldview lessons with parents and leaders in nearby Huimango, and Cunduacan. We have also met with the student body and leaders at Sureste Presbyterian Seminary in Nacajuca.
We helped the students begin to identify in themselves the “double-mindedness,” that is referred to in the bible. Hearts and minds of integrity set on God’s truth and goodness is powerful, transformational, and very much-needed in our confused and hurting world.
In Comalcalco, Norma, an AMO teacher taking the training for the second time, shared about one particularly difficult student. For weeks she struggled with the child who was disruptive, non participative, and disrespectful. She was determined to appeal to the child’s own responsibility to govern himself according to Christian principles agreed to at the beginning of the school year.
“It’s finally working!” she exclaimed. He is now one of the most engaged, he brings his bible regularly, and he has stated, emphatically, his preference for his teacher, Norma, over other teachers.
- We ask you to pray for this state. Drug Cartel activity, corruption, and general insecurity, is higher now than people can remember.
- Pray for our national leaders to work together and to seek God’s plan for our nations.
- Pray for our AMO training next week at the Seminary in Nacajuca.
- Please, pray also for Ely Aguilar, new AMO Trainer in Oaxaca, who has a training planned there this month.
If you would like to make gifts to support the addition of certified AMO Trainers in Mexico, please, call us (830) 719-5812 or go to The Antioch Partners and search for Project Support/McReynolds.
Thank you, and blessings to each of you in this New Year.
