This morning Rod and I get together with various Christian leaders from the area to hear some presentations about “mobilizing” Mexican missionaries. It was a good chance to meet some people and chat with some people. We talked about bringing some missions training to churches, about Bible translation, leadership training, Islam in Latin America, and so on.
Yesterday at our morning service I shared a little about nineteen unreached people groups here in Mexico, many thousands of whom live quite close to where we are. It was interesting because we learned about some of the same groups today, such as one people group of more than sixty thousand people, no believers among them that I know of, who have only the New Testament in their language. Many other groups in Mexico only have a few portions of the Bible.
This afternoon our new semester of community centre classes started, including the very first class in the new building in Las Palmas! English class and painting class (they’re painting cacti) were the order of the day. I believe there was some soccer going on too. Quite a few students. Exciting!
Lots more coming up this week, including for us a baking class on Thursday and a keyboard class tomorrow.
