Our teams partner with Gerardo Pereyra and the church plants in the area to help with their kids club in the summer and leader training. We seek to support the local pastors in the work they do on a daily basis.
Our intention at Grace is to partner strategically in hard areas of the world where we can live holistically, generously and serve as a catalyst for a movement of God’s church globally. Our goal is to encourage and build up the local cross-cultural workers/pastors so that they feel better equipped to send out their own cross-cultural workers.
Prayer is one of the most simple, yet powerful tools that we, as believers, have to use. Ephesians 6:18 calls us to, “pray in the Spirit at all times and on every occasion. Stay alert and be persistent in your prayers for all believers everywhere.” Pray with specificity for the Pereyra’s and Denver Murray to have wisdom in teaching, training, and shepherding the pastors and community. 30 Ways to Pray is a great resource to pray with specificity.
God calls us to shift our thinking from comfort to sacrifice. As you engage the culture and invest your time, money, and energy into what God is doing in Mexico City, your heart will follow. You can give to Mexico City by providing financial or material support to any of the four workers that we support or by helping someone else be a part of a GO team to Mexico City.
To directly support one or more of the cross-cultural workers please see the link or email in their bios below.
As we hear the Great Commission and understand that God calls us all to share the gospel, we must also shift our thinking from security to service. “For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me and for the gospel will save it. Maybe you have had thoughts about going on a trip. We encourage you to email Sarah Yajko, our Global Coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
The Zika Virus & GO Teams in 2016
Many are aware of the Zika virus that is spreading throughout parts of South America, Central America, North America, and the Caribbean Islands. At this point, though the virus has certainly been identified in Haiti as well as in Mexico where we send teams, none of our on-the-ground missionaries or national ministry leaders have advised not traveling (and they would – they have before!).
A retired Spanish teacher, Denver spends 9-10 months a year in Mexico City assisting the ministry and discipling young men. If you would like to support Denver in the work that he is doing you can at Encompass World Partners. Please be sure to specify Denver when you give.
Gerardo is an Argentine cross-cultural worker. He is the pastoral coach for multiple church plants in the Mexico City area and the team leader for the visiting teams. If you would like to support Gerardo in his work you can email Sarah Yajko at email@example.com to connect with him.
