We returned from Ucila, Mexico on Sunday the 15th. What a great time we had. We saw over 1000 people in the medical and dental clinic during the five days. Hundreds received Jesus. We had youth meetings in the afternoon with about 150 youth and open air meetings in the evenings with about 1000 in attendance.
This is our 7th year to go to Ucila. The first year we came upon great opposition. Many in the village did not trust us or want us there. That is until they saw we really cared about them. The church there had been struggling with only a few members. We showed them the love of Christ. How God can make a huge difference in ones life. Many came to know Jesus that first year.
Year after year we continued. Now 7 years later the president of the village greeted us the first night by holding our meeting in the square of the county seat. He built a stage for us, welcomed us personally, and made his entire staff sit through the service. The president of the village publicly admitted he was a sinner and he needed God. Hundreds prayed with these government workers as we lead the entire congregation in the sinners prayer.
Each night seemed to get better as we preached and lifted up the name of Jesus. Thursday night it began to pour rain just as we began to preach. No one left. Many just got out their umbrellas and sat there, others took shelter under the platform covering and others under a near by building, but their hunger kept them there.
The final night our team prayed for individuals and families. It was a wonderful time seeing Gods grace unleashed on people crying out for the truth.
Today, 7 years after we first began working here, the church is running over 600 on Sunday. They now know the truth and the truth has set them free.
