Mexico Team Letter April 2018

            On July 1st, many Canadians will be eating pancakes, camping at the lake, watching fireworks, and celebrating our great nation. But not for 6 of us from Lawson Heights Alliance. We’ll be embarking on an exciting short term missions (STM) trip to Mexico. David Harvey, Aaron Gleadow, Janaya MacKenzie, Shawna MacKenzie, Nicolas Peters, and Pastor Tyler Rody will be travelling to Mexico City for a 10 day STM trip.
            We have been in contact with the Mexico City site coordinators, Ray & Cindy, and they have created a unique discipleship partnership for us. We will be partnering with Dan & Jenica and 4 students from the C3 church to lead workshops and build relationships in a remote community, San Pablito, 4hrs north east of Mexico City.
            We have connections with San Pablito through Heather, our Seamless Link International Worker, who has built relationships with the community and local church through Brave Heart Ministries.
            Before we go, we have been discovering more about God’s heart for the nations as we meet together for training and discipleship. In the coming weeks, we’ll update you with some specific ways you can pray for us. At this time, please pray:
  • That our team would grow in faith before we go and God would help us prepare to go
  • That Dan & Jenica would be empowered by the Holy Spirit to lead C3 students
  • For Ray & Cindy Perry, site coordinators, who take care of all the Alliance missions teams that travel to Mexico City
  • That God would be working in the hearts and lives of the people in San Pablito
  • Thank God for the Good News of Jesus Christ that changes lives forever!
