And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name Jesus: for he shall save his people from their sins. Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.
Matthew 1:21-23.

And his mercy is on them that fear him from generation to generation.
Luke 1:50

Our God is the promise keeping God! Not one of His mighty Words has failed. And the Promise of promises is our Lord Jesus Christ! Only because of His coming to be God With Us (Emmanuel), we now have a Savior (JESUS) to save us from our sins. Here we are 2000+ years later, still receiving His mercy, forgiveness, and salvation. We rejoice because of His coming to save us and we pray that many more will see His Mercy from generation to generation.

Danny Martinez

Danny Martinez (right) graduated last year, but his story started long before. Juan Martinez and Gaby came to school here and are both Chinantecos from the Vega del Sol area of the state of Oaxaca. God called them to full time ministry so they came and studied at MITC back in the 80’s. They graduated and then got married and served together in the mountains of Oaxaca as missionaries for MITC for several years. There the Lord gave them a daughter and a son. Little did they imagine that Danny, years later, would also be called by the Lord to serve in the Gospel ministry. Danny is now serving in Costa Rica, working as a missionary at a church and as a Bible teacher in a Bible Institute. So we see God’s mercy from generation to generation and His blessing going out to all the nations to save His people from their sins! Praise Emmanuel! The Lord is allowing us to see several second generation students rise up to come and prepare for the Lord’s service, following in the footsteps of their parents. It is a great joy to see God use this place to bring these young people together and start families and continue to receive and share the mercy of the Lord.

December Bible Conference

We had a good opportunity to “catch up” with many of our alumni and hear their testimonies of how the Lord is using them in the ministry during our December Bible Conference and Alumni Reunion. Fifty-two graduates came, many with their families, to stay for the week long teachings given by Pastors Mark Webb (Olive Branch, Mississippi) and Jim Gables (Trussville, Alabama)(left). Sixteen sessions, eight messages on First John and eight on the life of Elijah, were the themes God used in a powerful way to instruct and challenge all of us in our service to the Lord. Of course, all our present students and faculty and staff were present for the meetings, as well as many pastors and leaders from the area and also from the state of Oaxaca. This year, Pastor Jim Gables announced that this would be his last year to come for this special time of teaching after eighteen blessed and very fruitful years of ministry among us here at MITC in Mexico. We are very grateful to the Lord for brother Jim and his efforts in teaching many generations of our students. In this too, we see the “mercy of the Lord from generation to generation”. We pray the Lord will guide and bless our dear brother in the more local areas of his ministry now that international travel is becoming very difficult for him to continue.

Dr. Tom Robinson

Dr. Tom Robinson (Alexandria, Louisiana) continues to faithfully serve the Lord here in Mexico, leading the eye surgery team that is a tremendous blessing for so many people. Dr. Robinson was called by the Lord in 1977 to come to Mexico and serve the Lord helping people with their physical blindness. Literally hundreds of trips later and thousands of patients seen and treated, God continues to use our dear brother and his wife Daphne(right), and all those who come with him to serve. Once again, we see this special mercy and faithfulness of the Lord among us.

Medical Ministry

This year Drs. Brad Black (Baton Rouge, LA) and Pam Williams (both pediatric eye surgeons)(left), operated with brother Tom to help many people with their eye diseases. Cataract, Strabismus, surgeries were performed on over ninety patients. As the patients waited with their families, our students prepared and served food, preached, sang, and shared the Gospel, one on one. The children received  Bible lessons and Vacation Bible School type activities while they waited to be seen by the doctors. During this time, the mercy of the Lord was shared in Word and deed and we are grateful to be a part of this special ministry for the glory of the Lord Jesus.

United Youth Choir

Please be in prayer as the United Youth Choir ministers during the month of December, singing about the first coming of our Lord Jesus. There are several public concerts scheduled and there will also be preaching of the Gospel when the Choir sings. This past month, we had the first of these concerts with the Choir as Brother Tom Harrison came from Shreveport, Louisiana and preached the Word of God in the cities of Fortin, La Cumbre and El Pochote. Still, many others need to hear of the Mercy of the Promise Keeping God in His son, Christ Jesus.

We are very thankful for your love, support and prayers throughout this year, as we have seen God’s mercy through each of you. May the Lord Bless and keep you for His glory.

Happy Thanksgiving!

And Jesus, when he came out, saw much people, and was moved with compassion toward them, because they were as sheep not having a shepherd: and began to teach them many things.
Mark 6:34.

Howbeit Jesus suffered him not, but saith unto him, Go home to thy friends, and tell them how great things the Lord hath done for thee, and hath had compassion on thee.
Mark 5:19

The compassion of our Lord is the high standard and model we must follow in all we do in this world. We must remember we are on a mission with HIM as co-laborers with Christ. We need to have compassion in our teaching, in our giving and in our relationships each day. May the Lord renew in us His love and compassion even now.

Fall Bible Conference

We are thankful for the time with brother and friend, Pastor Mark Engelthaler (Garland, TX), as he came and taught our Fall Bible Conference for village leaders. He spoke on the topic, “The Pursuit of a Heart for God”, a study on the life of David, who was declared to be “a man after God’s own heart”. We had around forty leaders from the Chinanteco, Mixe, and Cuicateco regions of the mountain churches. In addition to the conferences, there were also classes for these brethren with our staff in the subjects of pastoral practice, guitar, song leading and sermon preparation. The brethren traveled long distances to make it for the four day meeting. Our prayer is that God would continue to establish and use these leaders in the mountains for many years to come.

Pastoral Conference

Eric and Vicky are both graduates of the Bible School and have been working for the last several years in Mexico City, where Eric pastors a Baptist church in the northeast side of the metropolis. Eric brought the pastors from his association for a two day visit and pastoral conference. Teaching this conference was Danny Hernandez(left), former MITC staff member and alumni. The theme for this was “Only Scripture”, emphasizing the Bible as the only rule of faith and practice for the Christian. We are glad to see Eric’s growth and leadership that the Lord is giving him among the churches.

As for Danny Hernandez, he has been on “loan” to us from Broadmoor  Baptist Church in Shreveport, LA, where he is the head of the Hispanic ministry. Danny is presently waiting on his paperwork to be approved so he can return with his family to the mission in the U.S. In the meantime, he is living here at the mission in Cordoba and helping with many special teaching projects, visiting groups and working here on the compound.


Also this month, Marco and Gina Barroso and Chuy and I, had the blessing of visiting the brethren in Usila(below), a town in the mountains of the state of Oaxaca, among the Chinantecos. The purpose of the trip was a weekend Bible conference for the leaders of the churches in that region. Preaching with a translator into the Chinanteco dialect and hearing choruses sung in their native tongue reminded us of the grace of God upon all nations, tribes, and tongues. We taught from Peter’s first epistle.

Also during the weekend, there was a special meeting with the leaders of the area who expressed the desire to go to other villages in that mountain range where there are yet no churches. Teresa, one of our alumni from the village of Alianza attended the meetings and shared how she has started to visit a place that is a four hour hike from her own village in the mountains to share the Gospel. That is sharing with compassion. Please keep her in your prayers.

Thankful for Blessings

As we have shared in recent letters, the Lord has provided many opportunities here in our state of Veracruz, to help with those that lost homes and possessions due to flooding in the past months. God has moved hearts to seek to alleviate this situation and we have been able to send food, clothing, medicines, etc. to these areas. Our primary purpose is to share the love and compassion of the Lord with those in need, but the ultimate purpose is that God would use this to bring people to faith and salvation in Jesus Christ. MITC Teacher and Pastor Moises Torres(right) and members of Belen Church, have been the ones to take the supplies to areas close to Moi’s hometown. The Lord has blessed the distribution of these items and touched many hearts with His love and compassion. In the small town of Playa Maria where everything was lost in the flooding, a family has asked that services to the Lord Jesus be held in their home. Praise the Lord for His saving compassion for us!

We are grateful for all the Lord is doing and how He uses each one in a special way to share His love. Thank you for your prayers, love and support, that make this possible. May His compassion be greatly manifested in our lives for His glory.
