Our female dormitory is still under a bit of construction, but that hasn’t kept us from opening it for our first 7 young ladies. Abby Flores is our Resident Dean for this new dormitory. We are still looking for a name for the ladies dorm!
Please continue to pray for Abby and girls as they learn how to live and grow together as women of God.
We are happy to officially announce that we have opened the new Male Dormitorio in Texcoco. This dorm is located in what was previously the medical clinic and home of Dr. Noe Flores. A lot of painting, building, and repairing went into making this home a dormitory. All of the young men living in this dormitory are at least 18 years old.
We have not officially named the dorm yet, but Daniel Myers (Resident Director of the dormitory) and others have jokingly called it “La Casa de Los Cachorros” for now. This translates as: “The House of the Puppies/Lion Cubs.”
Please continue to pray for all the young men in the dormitory and also for Daniel as they begin this new journey together.
Recently our church plant -Comunidad Cristiana Expansión (Expansion Christian Community)- found a building of its own to hold services in. You may remember from earlier posts that we had been meeting at the Bethel home for quite some time. With the new location we do not need to bring chairs from each house, we have parking for visitors, our meeting space is MUCH larger, and the location is more centrally located within Texcoco.
We have decided to provide an inside comment from Abby Flores, who is the wife of our church planter Saul Flores, in order that you may know the needs still necessary at this time: “My husband, Saul, is able to devote all of his time to the church. We are renting a building in a central area of Texcoco, Mexico. We have been blessed to receive help with the rent of the building from a church in the United States. They are going to help us get on our feet until we are able to pay the rent out of our own offerings. Our weekly offerings are currently helping our teaching staff and volunteers buy the supplies that they need for their classes, helping to buy other church supplies we need, and musical instruments needed for the Sunday worship.”
We ask that you continue to pray for the hearts of the people that live in our city, for financial support that the church could still use, and also that those of us involved in the formation of this new Christian Community will make wise decisions daily and be a light where we live.
