Second Family Conference in Mexico
Without a doubt, one of the main answers to prayer and a highlight of the conference was to see for the very first time in the history of the IBLP Mexico ministry, an all-Mexican CI team––both the leadership and the assistants. It was exciting to see the team gather together in the Training Center three days before the conference to set aside time to seek after God in prayer. In the days leading up to the conference, they also received training, worked on the preparation of their lessons, songs, Scripture memorization and crafts for the conference. God blessed their efforts each day leading up to the CI presentation to the parents on the last day. And after the presentation, the parents and guardians of the children and orphans praised God, clapped their hands, and gave the team a standing ovation! We are aware that it was God’s grace upon each of the volunteers that made such an eternal impact on the children. The hard work of the CI team members was rewarded by the joyful tears of gratefulness on the faces of the parents. The parents were thrilled to see that God had spoken to their children as deeply as He had spoken to them!During the conference, no one could dispute that God honored His Word and gave a wonderful conference, filled with rich fellowship for those that attended. Most of the attendees were people near the Guadalajara area, but there were families that traveled from all over Mexico, and even a few from the surrounding Latin American countries. There was a constant request for more materials to be available in Spanish, and we feel that God will have us continue both the translation of materials and organization of the conferences in other parts of Mexico.
