VBS materials and other Christian curriculum.

The fire escape stairs need to be welded and anchored to the

Repair and Extend the Old Restroom
We have only one restroom, and it’s in very bad shape. The
walls and flooring need repaired, the toilet and sink need to be
replaced, and a shower needs to be installed. Supplies need to
be purchased: concrete, paint, electrical wiring and fixtures.

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
I wanted to send out this update informing you of the
completion of the restroom at our church building. We also
purchased a sound system for worship services and open air
meetings like VBS and other community outreach activity. As
you can see above we still need to complete several more
projects. We desperately need Bibles and materials for VBS,
our class rooms are in really bad shape and we need to finish
all of the much needed repairs on the building. Please pray
about taking on one of these projects during your VBS or
Camp Week this summer. Present these needs to your
Mission’s Ministry for their consideration. This Church is
located in a very poor area and has the potential to reach
hundreds for Christ. The members are hard working folks
whose income is around $10 a day. Most of them work as
hotel maids and maintenance laborers or other service type
jobs. Two of the elders work on a garbage truck 6 days a
week. They need our help to reach out to the community with
the Gospel. There are many false doctrine groups in the area
such as the Jehovah Witness, Mormons and 7 Day Adventist.
We need the true New Testament teaching on salvation
proclaimed in this region. Will you help your brothers and
sisters in Christ? We will be back in Mexico the end of this
month the Lord willing. Please let us know ASAP if your
Church would like to fund a project or if you are planning on a
short term mission trip with MEI this summer to help with our
VBS down in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico.
