  Dear James,

For all things are for your sakes, that the abundant grace might through the thanksgiving of many redound to the glory of God. For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day. For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory; While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.
2 Corinthians 4:15-18

And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are called according to his purpose.
Romans 8:28

Looking to the things which are not seen is the key for all those in Christ and who are going through afflictions. The renewal of the inward man speaks to us that all this life is preparatory for the eternity of glory in the presence of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Thank You, Freddy
  MITC - Freddy

Our hearts have been deeply touched by the life and death of brother "Freddy" Alfredo Pacheco. He came to the school as a hired brick mason in 1994 to help on one of the many construction projects that the Lord has given us here on the MITC campus. As he worked with the concrete, our students helping him shared with him about the "Rock" of our salvation. Through this testimony, God in His grace and mercy brought Freddy to believe in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. Soon after this, Bible studies began in his home, and his wife Irma, seeing the transformation in Freddy's life, also came to believe the Gospel.

In God's generous providence to MITC, we were able to keep Freddy working on ongoing projects from 1994 until 2010. His handiwork is seen all over campus in many buildings, such as the Chapel, the Villas, The Kitchen, The Tower, etc. He was also the master builder in the church building projects at Ebenezer, La Cumbre, Loma Bonita, Cuidad Mendoza, and lately at El Pochote, where he and his wife served and attended. Freddy was specially loved by many brethren from the visiting groups who came and worked with him side by side and took great joy in serving on Freddy's "crew". Freddy went on to be with the Lord after fatal complications with diabetes, with which he struggled for many years. We are very thankful for the blessings of knowing Freddy, for his friendship, and for his faithful work here at MITC. Please keep Irma, his wife, and their sons and daughters in your prayers at this time.

Faith through the Storm

As you may have heard in the news, the state of Veracruz has been severely battered by storms and lastly by Category 3 Hurricane Karl. The calculations are that 65% of the territory has been flooded in the last three weeks. There has never been a situation like this in the history of the state. We are spearheading an effort to help with those who have lost all their belongings and whose homes are destroyed. Many churches in our immediate area that have ties to MITC are gathering supplies, water, cloths and medicines to help. We have several of our alumni who are pastors in the towns under water. We hope to work with them to share food and basic supplies to those in need. Our prayer is that through the help we can give, the Lord will bring hope and love, and that others will come to know the Lord Jesus Christ as savior in the midst of this most difficult time. Please pray that the Lord would bless these efforts and would multiply the supplies and bless their distribution for His glory.
Summer Youth Camp
  MITC - Danny Guiltner

During the past month, the Lord allowed us the blessing of having our Summer Youth Camp. As each year, once again the Lord blessed in a tremendous way, using the preaching of the Word of God by Brother Bill Britt. We had a "full house" in attendance. Many were impacted by the Gospel for salvation, and we were glad to see several campers enroll in the Bible School as God called them to prepare for the ministry. This camp is directed by our alumni and staff member, Jimmy Vazquez, who, working with our third year students, put together an exciting five day stay for the youth that came from all over southern Mexico.

Also, each year we are blessed during the camp by the presence of the youth group from the Baptist Church of Summerville Florida, led by Pastor Danny Guiltner. These brethren are a tremendous help during the camp as they work long hours in the kitchen helping our cooks with preparation, serving and clean up. Their spirit of service is a special testimony to the youth at the camp of the Love of Christ.

  MITC - Lamar Group

We thank the Lord for all the help received by our summer groups. The last one of these was led by Lamar Nelson and comprised of brethren from several churches in the Shreveport, Louisiana area. This team helped us get things back to normal after the youth camp and get ready for the start of the school year - painting dorms, putting together beds, etc. Off campus, they helped with the VBS at El Pochote working with Ana and Pastor Fernando.

In Conlusion
  MITC - United Youth Choir
In August, God allowed us to visit the United States with the United Youth Choir on a one week tour to Shreveport, Louisiana. The primary purpose of the visit was to share the Gospel in song and message with the Hispanic community in this area. We were able to go and return with the group of fifty-four brethren with His blessing. There were concerts in several public venues as well as in Hispanic and non-Hispanic churches. In each place, Christ was exalted and a strong testimony was given of His Love. The youth in the group were greatly encouraged by this opportunity to sing of the Lord's grace in the United States. Special thanks to Broadmoor Baptist Church for their part in making this trip possible.

As always, we thank you for your interest in God's work among us here In Mexico. Thank you for your attention to this letter. Thank you for your prayers, love and for your support. May the Lord continue working in us and through us unto those things that are eternal and for His Glory.

Yours in His Love,
Dan and Chuy Hall

    This blog adds to our information that there are many big institutes which give training to the workers. In that way they learn the different things from that and do the work from that knowledge. This is an amazing facility for the students who can’t afford them.
