Dear “Amigos en Cristo,”
October has been a very
special month for us in Juarez, with two special events.
FIRST, on Sunday afternoon, October -, our main church invited several local
pastors to meet for the ORDINATION of Angel Ruiz. After a very tough
examination, the council recommended and the church proceeded with the
Ordination. Angel was raised and saved in Acapulco and came to Juarez as a
teenager to work. He came to our church and in less than a year surrendered his
life to serve the Lord. He entered our Institute and after three years graduated
and married one of our young ladies, Olivia, also a graduate of the Institute.
They both went with our then pastor, Jose Luis Mares, as a missionary team to
Argentina where in less that three years have built a church of 100 in
attendance each Sunday, built a building, started a Bible Institute, and opened
a mission in a poor area with a Manna program to feed hungry children. I was
blessed to preach the charge and present the Ordination Certificate to Angel,
our son the in ministry.
SECOND, our church
had our Annual Mission Conference with two of the families we have been
supporting, Mario Rodriguez and Angel Ruiz. Our church really got into the
spirit and each class of children presented a program, dressed in the national
dress of the country their class had adopted. The classrooms were also decorated
and after church samples of food was given to the parents as they visited each
of the classrooms. The winning class gets $100.00 dollars to send to their
adopted missionary, and second place gets $50.00 dollars for their missionary.
We had a tie for first place so the church will send each missionary a $100.00.
Our FAITH PROMISE for the year was $600,000 pesos which translates to a little
less that $60,000 dollars.
Yours for Mexico,
Garland and Charlene Hamilton
