Thank you for being a part of the Avance/Spearhead ministry.
"All though scriptures, God has been calling imperfect and broken people to join with Him in partnership with what He is doing all around the world. With my time in Mexico working with Avance, despite my weaknesses and fear, God has worked powerfully in my life and in the lives of those who I have served, who served alongside, and even those who I have lived with, in Mexico City. Christ is doing great works of restoration and reconciliation here, and He has chosen to invite us along Him in this work. How could I not stay where God has invited me?"
"It is no understatement when I say that my life and character have changed dramatically since coming to Spain. I have seen God work in amazing ways all the way through the difficulties of learning a new language and culture and in profound ways in my community here in Granada. We spend time processing what the Lord is doing in our local context that we might better understand what He wants to do in our own lives as well as in the lives of those whom He puts in our lives. Avance España has helped me see God in a new way, a way that is helping me understand how He wants to work in and through me, my ministry, and His church in the local context."
"The word ‘obedience’ brought me to Mexico City with Avance. Trying to adhere to this Word has brought me into places of difficulty and growth while here. I have been able to see God actively working within me, the Avance team and Mexico City. I pray to be able to continue working alongside what God is doing here and it is so encouraging to be able to serve our perfect, loving and passionate God. I have seen a great amount of change in my being as I seek God first while serving in Mexico City! And I am excited to continue serving our partners well for the remainder of my time with Avance and beyond."
"One can only do so much preparation before arriving in Mexico City. Avance Mexico has done this research and helped me understand the cultural differences here in Mexico City to effectively and lovingly share the gospel here."
"As a teacher at a small Christian school in Mexico City, I have found new meaning in what it means to love as Christ did, as I patiently disciple and educate young believers. Through my cultural immersion and relationships with my host family, I have a deeper understanding of the significance of being a daughter of the one true King and belonging to a family to which many others worldwide also belong! I can see God moving on a global scale rather than solely in the context of westernized cultures, and He is AWESOME!"
