On this trip we experienced the ministry of Patrick O'Connor (E3 Partners house church Trainer) and Lyle Smith (E3 Partners house church Director of Mexico).
"E3 Partners Ministry, based out of Plano, TX is a worldwide international ministry with the purpose of planting house churches."
They served together with us to teach a two day Leaders/Pastors' Conference on how to plant house churches. We were excited to see the great number of pastors and leaders who attended to learn the strategy for planting house churches. Lyle and Patrick illustrated the different steps of developing house churches through visual and literal examples. It was awesome to see the enthusiasm the attendees displayed. They were excited to receive training in order to be equipped to reach out locally, in other parts of Mexico, and Latin America! After completing the training everyone enjoyed a meal and fellowship together!
We also had the privilege on Sunday to participate in a Baptism Service at the Sinaloa River located outside of Alamito. A big crowd of people came to watch including some non-believers. Twelve people made the decision to further their commitment to following the Lord through public testimony!
