Pray with us for Western Mexico

March - April 2022

Dear Pastor, Supporters, and praying friends,

Although we have been dealing with some struggles as we all do the Lord has truly been blessing the work and teaching us to trust Him every step of the way.


As of this writing I am going to meet with some city officials in the next couple of days. Please keep this situation in special prayer. Once everything gets worked out, we will be proceeding forward.


Our mission in San Ignacio is continuing to be blessed of the Lord. We recently had two precious Soul’s trust Christ as their Savior. We are continuing to pray for the Lord to touch someone’s heart to come help us.


God has truly taken care of us delivering Scripture. We want to start off by saying if it were not for you praying and allowing the Lord to use you in helping this would not be accomplished. We just recently returned from a delivery all the way down to the state of Yucatan. The trip took 12 days and 4,800 miles round trip. We were able to supply over 100 churches in 14 states. Glory!!! Also, God gave us the privilege to help a brand-new church plant in xocchtel (pronounced choctel) Yucatan. Please continue to pray for this as we are planning another delivery to him in the future where we can stay an extended period of time and help him evangelize in the area and whatever needs he may have. Upon returning we were able to ship 300,000 tracts to Chiapas to be distributed in churches in five different states. As of this writing we have now delivered 3.6 million pieces of Scripture in 2022. Please be in prayer as our brethren are continuing to beg us for bibles and New Testaments. Remember they cannot just pop over to a Christian bookstore like we can in America. There is a desperate need for solid churches needing Scripture to reach their community. I will give a tract etc. to anyone who asks but our policy is not to setup distribution points or yoke up with those who preach and teach heresy, we pray that they will hear the true gospel and get Saved. As of lately we have been watching many of the Scriptures being delivered in quantity to heretics so they can spread a false gospel. Please pray with us that God would reveal this so we may get this Scripture in the hands of those who share the truth and can reach the lost.


Thanks again from the bottom of our hearts for helping reach the people here in western Mexico and beyond. Please pray about coming to Mexico we are in desperate need of help. Remember if God calls, He will supply, so you need not worry Just trust Him and His perfect will. We will be traveling thru the United States picking up supplies and Scripture in the Months of June and July, if you would like us to stop by, please let us know it would be a great privilege. Remember also if you have a missions emphasis month etc. myself, Bro Shawn or Bro Mike would count it a privilege to be a help. May the Lord continue to bless you as we continue to pray for one another.

A major part of the mission work we focus on is evangelization through scripture distribution. It's our belief that everyone should have the opportunity to hear the Gospel and read His word for themselves.


Another cornerstone to our work at Hands Across The Border is providing existing churches with the resources they need to teach and train their own congregations. These resources are very valuable to all.


The final focus is to establish local churches in various parts of Mexico, including Sonora, Sinaloa, and the Baja Peninsula. There is no greater cause than having a part in the everlasting salvation of others.
