10 years already!!! – Villegas Update August 2023

This past month we celebrated God’s faithfulness to this work. He has granted us 10 years of serving in Acapulco. To celebrate, we had a special service given by Pastor David Rosales. After a fantastic message, we had a great time of fellowship with some delicious pozole (Mexican stew).

We look forward to what the Lord still has in store.

Rancho Poiema

Pastor Cesar invited me to teach my apologetics course for a week at Rancho Poiema which is in Baja California. It’s a ministry that prepares and trains future pastors and leaders. The goal is to raise them up with the intention of sending them out to start a new work, which is something I absolutely love. We were able to send a couple, Johnny and Litzy, who just graduated and will be serving in our youth ministries.

Reaching the Youth

As most of us can see, Satan is after the youth and has been gaining a lot of ground. We decided to make a more serious effort to reach them. So that no one gets lost in the crowd we divided them by age so that we can minister to them in a way that’s personal and at their level. Please pray for our youth leaders as they minister to a difficult generation. I must add that all three of these youth ministers feel the call to eventually plant a church. I’m on board!! We just had a youth retreat with over 40 young men and woman present. It went amazing!!

Children’s ministry

We celebrated KIDS DAY!! It was a great time! The kids learned that Jesus came to save the lost and is the BEST and ONLY real super hero!! We will be having our VBS in August. We are praying that the local children will come. We covet your prayers for this event.

Pastors Conference

The annual pastors’ conference is coming up in October. It will be in Baja California. These conferences are always such a blessing. They encourage and edify God’s servants. It’s a tough job and it’s a real blessing to be surrounded by others who can identify with each other and pray together. But it’s not an easy expense for many pastors. The flight alone is above their income so I ask you would to please consider and pray about sponsoring one of our church planters. We have 4 pastors that could use your help. If the Lord puts it on your heart please reach out to us. A roundtrip ticket is around $350.00

The 70 -Men’s Discipleship and Women’s ministry

We had the honor of having Pastor Angel from Clavary Chapel Monrovia share with our men and church. He knows how to stir us up.

Local Outreach

The Lord has called us to go to the nations and that’s exactly what we aim to do. The Mission trip to Teloloapan in Guerrero went AMAZING!! Thank you for the prayers! We were able to give out food bags, medicine, clothes, toys, and the Gospel!! The local pastor said that the Love of Christ was poured out over the people. We are so proud of the team that went!

Further Outreach

There is no doubt that Mexico is in need of more servants but at the same time we cant ignore our own calling to serve all nations . Lili called to serve in the middle east. If you would like in more information clic the following link. https://sgwm.com/rabiella/


Please pray for the youth! We are asking for a revival!

Please pray for wisdom for our leadership. There is so much we would like to do, like open a drug rehab, more churches, and orphanages, etc but we need the Lord to lead every decision.

Please pray for our upcoming VBS and men’s and women’s retreats.

Thank you for your financial support! We are eternally grateful to you and ask the Lord to bless you double fold! “May the Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face shine on you and be gracious to you; the Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace.” Numbers 6:24-26
