Praying Luke 10:2
As I looked out the window of the plane back in March, I was deeply impacted by the immensity of Mexico City. I was on my way to Yucatan for another ministry trip; this would simply be a stopover so I could transfer flights. I prayed, as I do every time that I fly into Mexico City, that the Lord would send laborers to this enormous city with a combined population of over twenty million people.
On May 14 that prayer was answered as recently appointed Global Faith missionaries Victor and Annette Segura flew into Mexico City to begin their ministry. The Segura's departure for the field was the culmination of their prayers as they searched for a mission agency with whom to partner, and our prayers for missionary personnel.
The metropolitan area of Mexico City is home to over 20 million people.
We are excited about the ministry of Victor as he will be involved in the establishment of an online seminary for local pastors in Mexico City and the ministry of Annette as she ministers as a counselor.
When asked about strategies for recruiting missionaries, my immediate response is that the greatest strategy is the two thousand year old command given to us by Jesus Christ Himself when He said that we are to pray to the LORD of the harvest that HE would send forth laborers into HIS harvest.
It is HIS field, HIS harvest, and HIS calling that will result in additional missionary personnel. We invite you to join us in prayer as we continue to pray this prayer; it still works today!
Thank you for partnering with us as we continue to work with those who are going to the fields of the world.
