Prayers Needed

Communicating with a growing network of partners through a growing number of ways can be a challenge. Here’s Francelia in a hotel room in Chiapas “Whatsapping” with one of our fellow AMO Trainers.

We join with all of you praying for those in Houston and in all areas affected by the hurricane. Please, pray for our team at The Antioch Partners (TAP), based in Houston. News from TAP’s director, Andrew Adair, is that they are safe and very busy helping others.

Andrew asks for prayer for Evelyn Smith, Personnel Assistant for TAP, who suffered a severe fracture to her left leg while in Uganda with a team from her church. Pray for her safe return from Uganda and her care back in Houston, if she is to stay there. Evelyn is a wonderful support to us and all TAP members around the world.

Please, pray for The Antioch Partners fundraiser dinner planned for the 28th of September. As mentioned, TAP provides support to us, and all TAP partners around the world, in a variety of very important ways. From health insurance and income tax withholding to educational support and spiritual well-being, they truly dedicated themselves to helping us. Please, consider donating to TAP and keep an eye on the website for updates.

Finally, we ask for your continued prayers for our upcoming MeXed gathering in Oaxaca, this September 19-21. Biblical Christian educators and friends from around Mexico and the United States will gather for the fifth year to strategize and equip for discipling the nation. Staying connected as the body of Christ is a crucial part of the work. Call (830) 719-5812 in the U.S. and (55) 2118-3003 in Mexico to join us.


Thanking God for the Growth

MeXED Oaxaca 2017…join us!

Please, give thanks to God for the very successful AMO Training by Gloria Viveros in Guadalajara last week. This training for nine leaders, perhaps small by some measures, is crucial for opening future opportunities in that city.

Pray for Gloria and her training next week at Sureste Presbyterian Seminary in Tabasco. Pray for strength as she takes on these near-consecutive trainings. We are thankful and blessed by Gloria’s help which allows us to address other areas.

Since the last training at Sureste Seminary in January, approximately 100 more children have entered AMO® Programs. Also the video of the training, recorded at that time, has been sent for use in a Spanish-speaking ministry in – of all places – Stockholm, Sweden!

Dr. Elizabeth Youman’s was contacted by the ministry in Stockholm and has assigned one of our new AMO Trainers, Ely Aguilar in Oaxaca, to mentor the group by Skype as they go through the video training. (Congratulations to team AMO for putting technology to work for the Kingdom!)

Last week’s Disciple Nations Alliance (DNA) conference in Mexico City, led by the up-and-coming DNA Mexico team, was a great success, according to future AMO Trainer, Susie Frerichs, who attended. Susie reports these leaders should greatly help the spread of a biblical worldview among ministries across México. This in-turn helps implementation of AMO Program. Please, pray for this team led by José Curiel of YWAM Guadalajara.

Our visits in Chiapas last week rendered new friendships and future AMO Program training partners. Pray for Chiapas. Pray for the many poor rural indigenous communities who are influenced by activists pushing Marxist ideas, on the one hand, and discriminated against and marginalized by many in Mexico, on the other. Pray for the Church here to embrace AMO and engage in the battle of ideas that is raging. We thank God for his protection when we encountered a roadblock by activists demanding money for their cause, a common occurrence according to pastors we met with.

Pray for Mission On the Move Children’s Home in Tapachula, Chiapas. This group is doing wonderful work with children in need and we plan to offer AMO training for their house parents in future trainings.

Finally, pray for MeXED coming up September 19-20-21. You are invited to join us in Oaxaca for this important gathering of educators, proactive and focused, on Jesus’ command to make disciples of all nations. Contact us for details on how to attend…call Chris at U.S. mobile (830) 719-5812.
