CAPILLA CALVARIO BUENAVISTA, MEXICO - MIGUEL & LUISA CRUZ
Buenavista is a small, rural community, 25 miles from Guadalajara, where tradition is very important—and the Gospel can seem very threatening to the old ways.
For the past three years, Miguel and Luisa Cruz have been working with a small community of mostly new believers to bring the Gospel to their neighbors in need. The ground is hard, but their love is infectious. They pray that God would give them wisdom for reaching the lost with the truth and love of Jesus Christ.
CAPILLA CALVARIO OAXACA, MEXICO - ANTONIO & CARMEN HERNANDEZ
Oaxaca is a cosmopolitan city of 300,500 people located 300 miles south of Mexico City. It is surrounded by the most ethnically diverse area in Mexico. At least a third of the people speak indigenous languages and live in isolated communities.
Calvary Chapel Boise began partnering with Capilla Calvario Oaxaca La Puerta Abierta several years ago so their work with the indigenous peoples in the area could be expanded. CC Oaxaca sponsors four missions in remote areas: La Chicocana, San Juan Ihualtepec, Jossat, and San Andres Tiahuiloptepec.
CAPILLA CALVARIO TEPIC, MEXICO - SAUL & ANGELICA ALVAREZ
Tepic is a city of 350,000, located 140 miles northwest of Guadalajara. Almost 95% of its people are Roman Catholics and very resistant to the Gospel of Jesus.
The Alvarezes labor diligently to plant seeds of the Spirit in the hard ground of Tepic. They are sharing the gospel, and pastoring a church that is growing in grace and love.
A mere 3% of Mexicans consider themselves Protestant Christians. Furthermore, the Catholicism most people embrace is mingled with indigenous rituals and superstitions. Calvary Boise desires to see the true Gospel of God preached and believed in México. So, in 2012 after many years of short-term mission trips, God opened the doors for Calvary to pursue more focused long-term outreaches. Now, our missionaries minister to three Mexican communities: Saul and Angela Alvarez are in Tepic, Miguel and Luisa Cruz are in Buenavista and Rachel (Barber) Garduño serves with her husband Pato in Semilla de mostaza Santa Monica. Please pray for much fruit and also for God's perfect provision for the work.
