H10 is thankful for the opportunity to continue to partner with Mexico for Jesus in Mexico, providing financial and prayer support to this vital ministry. Mexico for Jesus was founded in the mid 1990’s by Jim Jordan. Jim went there as a full-time missionary and became a street evangelist – handing out gospel tracts daily and setting up new home church fellowships. The ministry has grown considerably after World Missionary Press (www.wmpress.org) asked Jim Jordan to become their director for the nation of Mexico and to put a bible or scripture booklet into every home in Mexico. With Jim’s leadership, millions of scripture booklets are shipped to hundreds of pastors throughout the country and are then distributed by their congregations to the people in their area. This ministry is one of God’s lights in a dark place.
Continues Ministry After Family Killed
This email was received from Jim, leader of the ministry in Mexico. It shows the power of God’s Word in a pastor’s life. The Pastor’s name and location has been changed but not the original email grammar and punctuation –
“Like to share a little of pastor, his name is Pablo his church is in Guaymas. He is from Panama, came from Panama, with his wife and four kids, in hopes of he and family crossing in to the US, as so many come up the same with the golden dream of life in the US. But as for Pablo and so many focus on the world, dreams gone bad, you see on the way up his wife and four kids were killed at the hands of the narco traffic. He was thinking considering taking his own life, but on the streets he received a little scripture booklet produced by World Missionary Press, and the spirit of God through the written word went to work on him. He has been pastoring his little church now which he planted with no support, but lots of faith 10 years ago with 5 or 6 home groups as well. Two years ago Pablo contacted me begging for scripture booklets and I mean begging, for the life giving written word. They are out daily distributing scripture booklets, please consider praying for pastor Pablo and his work. And if you pray for us as we labor together in the name of the Lord our fruits are yours as well.”
Updates from Mexico
Update From Mexico
2018 to Present
After watching Jim Jordan faithfully serve our Lord for decades in Mexico, WMP (World Missionary Press) asked Jim to become the Director of their ministry to the entire country of Mexico. The role played by Tom & Betsi has also continued to grow. The ministry has now grown to include the effort to put a scripture booklet into every home in Mexico, to reach out to other countries in Central America, assist churches throughout the country to reach more people through street evangelism and the planting of new home churches, continue to expand the discipleship program (this 2 year Biblical program has now resulted in hundreds of true disciples of Jesus who are now in ministry), and to expand the efforts to give food to the needy in Mexico.
Email True Story Update
We recently received this email from Mexico sharing a true story that shows the power of God’s written word to change lives. The grammar is printed as it was from the author:
“We now have been receiving material, scripture booklets, and bible studies from you guys for two years. Our people are out every afternoon going door to door handing out scripture booklets. And yes we have had some problems from time to time for instance one day I went to a house and said hello and could I have a glass of water the lady said yes one minute, when she returned she said sit down on a bench in the front of the house and we visited which is normal and in our conversation I asked if I could give her something she said yes, so I reached into my bag and handed her a scripture booklet, she looked at it and said I should wait a minute for her husband to come out. So I sat there in the shade of the tree, in a few minutes her husband came out holding a pistol and told me this is what I think of your God and shot me in the leg, they had to remove my leg from the knee down. Sounds bad? Well I still pastor my church and it has not slowed me down, about six months later as I was walking down the street using crutches, I saw the lady and she came up to me running I thought oh lord here goes another leg. But she said sir my family has been mafia for many years and my husband shot you but you left the scripture booklet How To Know God and as time pasted we read it and the words in that booklet changed our lives our whole family accepted Jesus in our hearts and if you would could you supply us with a supply of these booklets to hand out, I said gladly. You see friends to many the cost was great but for me the blessings were far greater I would gladly give my other leg or even my life to see the light of Christ move in someone’s life. The man who shot me has a very strong group in his house and they hand out around 200-300 booklets a day. Thank you for being in Mexico and supplying Mexico with these life giving booklets.”
