Construction progress for the new church building in Erendira 4/23~4/28
Roof works on pastor’s and guest houses are underway, and the ground has been dug before the foundation work on the sacntuary of the church building next to the house. Three BMU members and an electrician from New York installed electrical wiring of the houses.
The photos below show houses of native Mexicans (often called indio) who live nearby. We pray for Missionary Lee who serves them and leads them into God. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with him.
The photos below are the house complex for the native Mexicans and the farm where they work. Although concrete blocks are shown on the house, the floor is dirt covered with cardboards. They work at the vegetable farm, which the other boundary is not visible, all day long under hot sunshine. After work, they come back home in the evenings and have dinner alone.
Below is a centre for people with disabilities, which is supported by Missionary Lee. Unfortunately, the Mexican government does not provide any program for them.
The photos below are CASA DE OBEDEDOM A. C. (오벧에돔의 집), where helps prisoners prepare for life after prison, leads them into God, and provides four worship services a day, as well as educates future ministers. After a three-year course, they can work as ministers if they pass the exam. Pastor Lee drives there for four hours to teach them twice a week.
He, released from prion upon completion of the sentence for his felony conviction, needs one more year to have an opportunity of being ordained. After he gets ordained, he plans to go back his hometown to serve God. At the time, we may be able to support him financially unless his church runs by itself. We would like to ask for your prayers for this.
