Pastor Abelino was burdened to carry the gospel of Jesus Christ into the highlands of Chiapas, Mexico, with the support of Scripture booklets from World Missionary Press. The church he pastored faced challenges, as the people of the community refused to listen to the Word of God! But they prayed and fasted. Then something happened!
Pastor Abelino received a phone call asking for prayer for a sick person who was paralyzed. He went to that community and began to pray for the sick person. The Lord healed her! He was now able to share the Word of God with the whole family, who received the Lord as Savior.
Carrying Scripture booklets from World Missionary Press, fellow workers began sharing the gospel house to house. They were able to baptize a group of new believers who continue to be discipled. These are the first fruits of the passion and prayer to reach this area for Christ, seeing souls place their faith in Jesus, renounce the world, and be baptized. The Scripture booklets and Bible studies support them in carrying out the Great Commission in southern Mexico.
"Last April we received the materials to evangelize our neighborhood and surrounding streets. We have distributed them and several persons have received the Lord in their hearts. Six were discipled and four were baptized. This is all due to the fact that it is God who blesses the WMP booklets that EHC Mexico delivers to our Church. These Scripture booklets have been a great tool to accomplish the will of God to spread His Word among our people."
-Abraham G., Mexico
"Why did I go? After seeing & praying for the needs of the people in the caravan, I told the Lord that if doors opened for me to go and share hope with them, I would go. So with this burden also falling on others, through prayer and the Lord touching two other men's hearts, doors opened. In five days, we shared hope verbally with over 500 people, while distributing over 1,000 Bibles and 1,500 Scripture booklets. God is true to his Word. He did it all. Each of us also spent less than $350.00. God bless World Missionary Press for all their support."
-Joel W., U.S.A.
“This booklet, Help From Above, came to me in a time of my life when I was looking for the Lord. I was thirsty and hungry and this booklet helped me to find the Lord. I tied my life to this message. Then I looked for a Christian church but it was this message that lead me to the Lord. The Word of God is confirmed in Psalms 107:20 which says: 'He sent His word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions'. This promise was accomplished in my life because God not only healed me but also delivered me from ruin. For this I thank God for His Word, because His Word is hope to me as it is for millions of people, and there is hope for Mexico. May God bless you. It was my pleasure to greet you through this means.” -Julio S., Mexico
EHC Mexico's National Director, Gloria Silva Lopez would like to thank every WMP Donor who is making it possible to reach every home in Mexico! Amazing things are happening as EHC teams share the Gospel from house-to-house, on the streets, in places where drug abuse and crime rates are high, and in strategic places where people, like every one of us, are in desperate need of Jesus!
Gloria Silva Lopez of Every Home for Christ in Mexico shares about her husband Epi being kidnapped, who told his captors about Jesus and the treasure in the back of his van (Scripture booklets).
You can help impact millions in Mexico for eternity! World Missionary Press is teamed with Mexico Every Home for Christ in reaching every family in Mexico with the good news of the Gospel. This effort to reach every home began in 2008, with a projected completion by the end of December, 2018.

Answer: B. Mexico just surpassed Japan this year in population, so now they're the 10th most populated country in the world at *129,504,000.
We at World Missionary Press are teamed with Every Home for Christ to reach the entire population of Mexico with the good news of the Gospel.
The end is in sight! Mexico Every Home for Christ is poised to finish their 10-year campaign to bring the Gospel to every home in Mexico – a country of 130 million people – by the end of 2018. World Missionary Press’ Hope for Mexico project is raising funds for three semi-trailers full of Scripture materials to help finish this task.
Reaching every home includes visiting prisoners where they live. During her time with us, Mexico EHC National Director Gloria Silva Lopez shared about their ministry in Topo Chico prison – sharing the love of Christ with some of Mexico’s most violent criminals. The above video is an excerpt from Sister Gloria’s WMP chapel service, including video from Topo Chico prison.
Recently in chapel at WMP, Gloria and Epi from EHC Mexico shared their heart's desire—to finish covering the country of Mexico with the Gospel for the third time by December 2018. That's a big goal, but with God all things are possible! Precious souls in Mexico need to hear of God's love for them, and YOU can help send them that message.
We are looking to form a special Hope for Mexico team... an inner core of dedicated champions to help build the momentum and raise support for the second of three semi-trailers of God's Word to Mexico. (Our first semi-trailer has already been funded!) The Mexico team will help do this primarily through email and social media from now until December 10, 2017.
Will you be a part of our team? We have begun a "soft launch" of this campaign, and we need you to join us to make this happen. It all begins with setting up your own personal fundraising page. To begin, please open the attached pdf file, print it out and follow the instructions. Note: The most important part of setting up this page is uploading your profile photo.
I will work with you personally to make sure everything goes smoothly, and will be in touch with tips and other helpful guides along the way. The set up is extremely simple, but please give me a call or email if you have any trouble. Thanks so much for your help!!! God is moving in a big way, and it's exciting to be a part of His plan!
Yours in Christ,
WMP Ambassador Network Coordinator

From Every Home For Christ International
At EHC, we often recall how Jesus told His disciples, “Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me” (Matthew 25:40, NIV). He was speaking of feeding the hungry, comforting the stranger, clothing the naked, and visiting the sick and those in prison.
These lost souls live in every nation on earth, often forgotten in the darkest corners of society. As EHC workers carry the love of Christ from home to home—including nontraditional homes like hospitals, prisons, orphanages, and even street corners or sewers—they encounter the “least of these” and seek to care for them as they would care for Christ Himself. Special EHC outreaches and projects seek to reach these lost ones “right where they live!”
The Least of These Living in the Sewers and Slums of Mexico
In Mexico, much of society would like to forget that the “least of these” are among them. EHC Mexico National Director Gloria Silva Lopez explains, “Common people—even Christians—don’t go to the places where these people live because they believe that if we can forget them, they will no longer exist. But they do exist, and they are waiting for someone to bring them the hope of the Gospel!”
Gloria and her teams have made reaching Mexico’s “indigent” populations a priority. “The idea is to immerse ourselves in the depths of our society,” she says, “where no one else wants to go. We find people with drug addictions and with mental health problems. These are people who aren’t even aware of reality. They aren’t able to buy clothes or food, so they rely on people to give them basic necessities. Their homes are streets, gutters, bridges, railways, slums—and yes, even sewers.” EHC Mexico workers will truly go anywhere people call “home” to share the Good News!
Gloria and a team of EHC workers recently completed a project designed specifically to reach sewer-dwellers. “We were invited to visit a network of drains, sewers, and underground passages where entire families are living. Amazingly, up to three generations of indigents sometimes live together in just such a situation!”
Society may have forgotten this community of people literally living beneath them, but EHC has not. Even when homes are in sewage drains, EHC workers will take the Gospel to every such non-traditional dwelling. Although it was dirty and disease ridden, Gloria took a team of workers who together climbed down into a network of sewer drains to share the hope of Jesus with families living there. And as usually happens, a harvest of results awaits our teams wherever they go. Rarely would our workers go to such lengths and not see souls come to Christ as a result. This is exactly why Every Home for Christ exists!
Note: EHC Mexico National Director Gloria Silva Lopez is the guest speaker for our 56th Anniversary Celebration! We invite you to join us for this special gathering on Saturday, October 21st at 6 PM.
