†††One Saturday I received Christ at 11 in the morning in the month of January, 1983. This same day I traveled to an Evangelical institute called Berea, located in Mount Carmelo, Huehuetenango. From that time I was saved through the grace of God. Also from that time I began to evangelize and teach in church.
†††Since coming to Christ, I have led 41 people to Him and I have started a church in Chiapas, Mexico. My present ministry regularly involves open air evangelism, church planting ministries, literature distribution, discipleship, slum ministries, teaching the Bible and visitation. I also am actively involved in training others for the ministry.
†††In order to reach many of the villages with the gospel, it is necessary to walk many miles. Sometimes you can reach them by bus and sometimes you cannot.
†††I did have work I did for a company and it covered my expenses but now I do not have that job. I am living by faith. We live in a one room house constructed of block with a sheet metal roof. We mostly eat beans, potatoes and some meat.
†††Your financial help will be a blessing to me and my family. It will help provide our basic needs and also enlarge our ministry. Please pray for our work here in Guatemala as we try to reach our own people for Christ.
Every 4 months sponsorship funds are sent to the preachers. With it goes a Missionary Report Form for each one to complete and return to our office. After compilation of statistics they are forwarded by mail or email to the sponsors. Below are past report forms from this preacher. They have been modified to protect the financial data of the sponsor.
†††I was raised as a staunch Hindu and closely followed all the teachings of the goddesses. When once a classmate witnessed to me, I could only argue, even though I often wondered about life and existence afterwards. In school one of my friends were murdered and another committed suicide, then another collapsed and died. I was afraid. While in that condition a friend gave me his Bible to read. I went to a remote place to pray and became convicted by what I read. Before long, I had put my faith in Christ.
