Greetings from Mexico,
Just like you have, we have been working hard to make the best out of this difficult CORONA VIRUS situation. And we believe that we are going to see God bring good out of it just as He has promised! (Romans 8:28)
During the past month, we have been hosting what we are calling “CAR CHURCH” services on Sundays. To prepare for this special service, we first built a 450 square foot outside stage in our large parking lot, and then we made a giant 20×30 foot banner that said “WELCOME HOME” (Bienvenido a Casa)!
We also purchased an FM radio transmitter that transmits a live audio signal to a 5 mile radius. The end result is that people get to watch the live service onstage from their cars, while listening to the service on their fm stereo!
As we began to invite our church family we had many safety and security questions and we assured our friends that everything would be held with their safety in mind! We have now held 6 CAR CHURCH Sundays, and each Sunday the participation has grown. This past Sunday, we had over 160 cars full of our friends that attended our two Sunday services.
We are enjoying this special service, but are looking forward to opening up the church again with live services. Would you please join us in prayer about the timing of our re-opening? (The Mexico Government has not yet made any public statements about allowing churches to re-open)
Also during this corona virus, we have been working hard on improving our live streaming for services. If you would like to tune in and watch our live services, we stream them on Wednesdays at 6:30pm and Sunday mornings at 9am! You can find our live streams at our church facebook page, and also at our church YouTube channel. (Here is a link : https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCe6XmDBjFSJ-Hjd2zBWEDfA )
We have also taken advantage of this down time to build an audio video studio inside of our sanctuary to improve our audio and video online services. This 400 square foot addition was built out of the 2nd floor of our sanctuary. It includes a large office for our media staff, a production area for our audio and video team that will be recording the services live, and a permanent small studio where we can record online Bible studies, interviews, and video announcements! We are excited to debut our new studio and recording equipment next month, and hope that you will tune in to our new live-stream services and let us know what you think!
Finally, once again I want to thank you our precious co-laborers for your partnership in this great work. It is through your financial giving that God provides for our physical needs, and it is through your prayers that God provides for our spiritual needs. We are honored and blessed that you have chosen to partner with us. THANK YOU!
Con mucho amor de Mexico, (with much love from Mexico)
Mike, Sarah, Grace, and Daniel
