Amelia was 14 when she lost her mother, she had an absent father and two younger siblings to take care of. Yet, for some reason, God touched her heart with the spiritual needs of tribal people who had never heard the Good News and He miraculously made it possible for her to receive training at our center in Chihuahua.
Then her very small church located on the landfill (AKA the “dump”) of Tijuana sent her to join a church-planting team working with the Triqui people, and she learned their very complex tonal language.
This is just a short excerpt from her story:
“In the beginning I had a lot of fear of translating God’s Word,” Amelia shared. “I didn’t want to risk changing something. … But now that I’m in the process of translating, it’s beautiful.””Even more beautiful to Amelia is “how ready the Triqui people are to receive God’s Word. The reason the gospel hasn’t been shared here is because we, the missionaries, aren’t ready. We don’t have the lessons ready, or the translation.
“But the people are ready. … I see God is preparing them to receive the gospel.”
Amelia and her teammates, Gricelda and Miguel, are just three of the Latin American missionaries who have been equipped with the resource materials you have helped provide by partnering with us. They may not get a lot of attention on this earth, but they are outstanding servants in God’s kingdom. Don’t stories like this just thrill your heart?
Despite all the very disconcerting things that are going on in our world, our Lord continues to accomplish His eternal purposes, reconciling people from many people groups to Himself.
Thank you so much for making it possible for us to serve God in this way!
