All the ends of the earth will remember and turn to the LORD, and all the families of the nations will bow down before him..
“La Iglesia de Cristo en Monterrey”, led by Evangelist and Women’s ministry leader Roberto and Sonia Arroyo, are very grateful for the emotional, spiritual and financial support they receive from the DFW Church every year. Because of the love and support of the DFW Church, the Monterrey Church has been able to receive great training and inspiration through various resources such as our Ministry In Training program, past Texas Jubilees, and valuable discipling relationship with Mark and Connie Mancini.
In the last years, the Monterrey Church has faced great challenges in converting their youth. However, through the love and sacrifice of the DFW Church they have been able to hire a Campus Intern as well as a Youth and Family Intern, which has resulted in a growing number of young people coming to Christ and families being strengthened in their faith as they witness their children becoming faithful disciples of Jesus.
My Wife and I felt honored to travel to Monterrey last October and minister to the church through a weekend long Youth and Family Workshop.
On our first day there, we had the opportunity to share our lives before their vibrant teen and campus ministry. We loved meeting the young people in the church as their stories of struggles and victories resembled those of the young people we serve in Dallas.
The next day, we had the opportunity to meet with the Hope World Wide chapter director and exchange ideas of how Hope can continue to partner with the Church and serve the community in Monterrey in even greater ways. The church in Monterrey is dreaming big about being a light to the world as they serve the poor.
On our last day there, we had an opportunity to present a Youth and Family workshop at a congregational service of over 200 marrieds. The disciples in Monterrey walked out of service full of faith for their families, as they listened to victory stories of how God has been blessing families in Dallas in a powerful way.
God has incredible kingdom plans for His people around the world and those plans include our youth and our families! He purposefully intends to use our parents and children for His glory. We are faithful that God will continue to transform our communities and nations, one family at a time.
