Pastor Bernardo at La Florida

In Northern Mexico, between Reynosa and Matamoros on Highway 2, there are about a dozen tiny homes and 1 church in a village called La Florida. Pastor Bernardo has been laboring faithfully at this church for several years.

Here is Pastor Bernardo teaching Sunday School. He does an excellent job and has been focusing on the importance of having Christian Families.

This is his daughter and newborn son.

Pastor Bernardo's wife, Arely. She is a true helpmeet to her husband.

A new baby in the parsonage!

Children's Ministry

We are convinced that the best way to ensure that our world has Godly, committed, Christian adults is that training begins with little children. What a joy it is to see our Bible Methodist Churches in Mexico involved in Child Evangelism, Sunday School and Vacation Bible Schools.

Another bundle of joy! With God's help, the future is bright.

La Soledad

On the way through Progreso, Mexico we often see this man standing while traveling in his horse-drawn cart. Kent calls him "Juan Hur" in reference to that famous charioteer of yesteryear. ;o) Enjoying a meal after church with our people in La Soledad. A precious lady who attends the church pastored by Homero Luna. Eating tortillas, beans, rice and carne guisada. So very good! Enjoying food and fellowship. This church is often called "28" because it is on kilometer 28 on Highway 2 (known as "the most dangerous road in Mexico").
