"I have learned...."
It says in Philipians 4:11 "I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances."
For seven days during the month of March and the first 5 days of April, 2021, Jose had the privilege to learn to be content whatever the circumstances dealt him. He went on a missions trip to the southern most part of Mexico, Chiapas which borders with Guatemala. He ventured into an unknown for him into this very rugged terrain hill country of Mexico. His mission was to preach, teach and encourage our brothers and sisters in Christ in this somewhat forgotten part of Mexico.
While many are traveling north across the U.S., Mexico border, Jose went south. He said many have abandoned their homes and properties in this part of the country for a better life in the Unites States but there are still many living in the most humble of conditions and circumstances in these remote villages. He said their number one need is for more preachers in this area. One minister, Felipe, is getting older and is just plain worn out physically, Jose said.
It was encouraging though to see faithful saints gather together to worship and sing praises to God and to sit attentively to hear the Word preached. It says we should pray for the harvest fields and for more workers to be sent out. Matthew 9:38 Pray for Chiapas, Mexico and for Guatemala.
"I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or want. I can do all things through him who gives me strength. Philipians 4:11-13
The apostle Paul is thankful for those who have shared with him in spreading the Gospel message to those most in need. We are humbled by your continued gifts and prayers given to E.M.M. and its many ministries to the inner city of San Luis Potosi and beyond.
We truly thank you for your continued support and prayers. Without you we would not be able to say, "I have learned the secret", and what is that secret? Jesus Christ. "And my God will meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus". Philipians 4:19
Coming soon will be an announcement about an exciting opportunity for you and many others to gather together and hear first hand about the ministry of E.M.M.. Whether you are in California, Minnesota, Indiana, Ohio, Louisiana or wherever you will be able to gather in small groups to listen, act and share with those in need in Mexico. Stay tuned and we know you will love what is about to happen here at Emanuel Mexico Mission.
We have learned....
