Mexico Missions

Each year Central Bible Church sends a team to Mexico to minister. This Missions Trip is sponsored my Azusa Pacific University. We leave the Thursday before Palm Sunday and return home on Easter Sunday. Driving from Montana to Mexico can be quite an adventure! Each year, while in Mexico, we assisted a local Mexican church in Abasolo along with various other ministries. We help the church with a Vacation Bible School, Women's Bible Study, and a building/work project. Recently, this church was burned down, and it is thought to be the action of an arsonist. A church from Holtville, California is assisting them at this time so we do not know what to except when we arrive there in March. The church in Abasolo has dealt with much persecution, particularly from the local Catholic church and her members, so we are hoping the church has the courage to persevere through yet another trial.

What can you do?

Please pray for the church in Abasolo. Also pray for Central Bible Church's 2010 Mexico Team as we prepare for the coming trip. Pray that we can raise the necessary funds for the trip through supporters and fundraisers such as the Valentine's Banquet this Saturday. Also, if you would like to support the team monetarily you can send checks to: Central Bible Church, 902 1st Avenue East, Kalispell, MT 59901. If you give, please remember to also put a note that it is for the Bonefeoles' Mexico Missions Trip Fund or simply the Mexico Missions Trip so your money is sent aside for the trip.
