ROM AND RACHEL RIBEIRO
There is no doubt the Lord sent us to the right place to influence other pastors about Missions and church planting. Our seven-month-old church is averaging 45 people per service, and growing. After finishing the newcomers eight-week discipleship classes, our people are encouraged to go through one-on-one discipleship for their spiritual growth and to acquire church membership.
CHRIS AND ELIZABETH ROBERTSON
“Our family has been serving the Lord in Mexico for over 13 years. We started Iglesia Bautista Libertad (Liberty Baptist Church) in Ixtlan Del Rio and desire to start more churches in this area because there are no others within a 25-mile radius of us. We have since begun outreach in Jala, a neighboring town, with the goal of starting a church. The church in Ixtlan is now pastored by a national, giving us time with the new church plant.
