Recently I heard the statement, "Generosity Fulfilled", by a church leader who was commending the congregation for their outstanding giving. Another church leader told his congregation during a Sunday morning offering thought that "the church does not need your money, it´s you who needs to give as the Lord blesses your life and family and in turn the church is blessed." Both churches are thriving for the Kingdom at home and abroad. Both congregations are living our what the Bible teaches about giving and that it is a blessing and an honor to support the Church and its many mission out reach opportunities.
We too want to lift up our outstanding supporters for their, "Generosity Fulfilled", in supporting the ministry of Emanuel Mexico Mission. Our board of directors are deeply involved in seeing that the mission work carried out is having an impact on peoples lives in Mexico. Also we are accountable to the Valley Christian Church as our home base in Lakeville, Minnesota and all of our wonderful supporters throughout Minnesota, Indiana, Ohio, Virginia and California.
As we enter this time of fall harvest we see the farmers bringing in what they had sowed in the spring and watched and waited as God abundantly water throughout the spring and summer months. It´s always God who blesses the increase to the harvest especially when we consider the ministry of the Church.
Consider giving a first fruits gift of your fall harvest whether your a farmer or any kind of able bodied worker. It is us who needs to give as the Lord blesses our efforts and labors.
Jose was asked to teach (Tuesday to Friday) at Colegio Cristiano del Centro (CCC) located here in San Luis Potosi, Mexico. This year the college has experienced a new growth in the student body and in need of more professors and faculty.. It is only a 15 minute drive from the mission and still allows time for Jose to oversee all the mission outreach opportunities that EMM is involved in here in the inner city.
Jose is helping to fulfill the Great Commission by teaching and enabling a new generation of Church leaders to be sent out into the harvest fields. The Bible says the harvest is plentiful. Pray for Jose and his students as together they are answering the call for more workers.
"Generosity Fulfilled" by our outstanding supporters of Emanuel Mexico Mission.
