Peck, associate pastor at Bethel Baptist, 1717 W Lindsey, said several members of his congregation have participated in the mission trips. He said many of the Mexican church leaders trained through Bethel Baptist's mission efforts now know how “to passionately share their faith.”
May, associate pastor at Trinity Baptist, said his congregation has partnered with a Mexican church that was struggling when the ministry relationship was formed.
He said that has changed. May said a vacation Bible school and basketball clinic was held recently, and about 70 people accepted Christ as a result. He said his church group held a baptism ceremony in a hotel swimming pool for the new Christians.
“Mexico is crying out; the fields are crying out,” May said, referring to Matthew 9:37.
“We felt very much safe while we were there.”
Meanwhile, delegates prayed for more mission partnerships to be formed with Mexico clergy and their growing churches.
Porter said he has scheduled eight medical mission trips to Mexico in 2013.
“I need some of you to join us on this,” he said.
