New Ministry in Baja California Mexico
My name is Eylin Rodriguez. I am 25 years old, born in a Christian family in Honduras. At the age of 13, I was taken to the USA by my parents who were already working with General Baptists. Some people can say that being part of a Pastoral family is difficult, I can say that on the contrary, I am blessed to be able to learn from them. I feel truly blessed to be a witness of the work that our Lord has done through many great men and women who have taken on the privilege of expanding the kingdom of God.
At the age of 21, I married Jose Carlos Hernandez, with whom I now have 2 beautiful children. Last year, my husband and I had a long conversation with the director of Sheffield Association of General Baptist Pastor Rene Rodriguez (my father) about the necessity of a new work in Mexico. My family and I decided to make ourselves available to work for the Lord and go wherever he wants to take us, so now here we are in Mexico.
On Saturday October 22, 2016, we had our first meeting in Tijuana Baja California, Mexico. Five Pastors decided to associate with General Baptists, giving birth to Northern Mexico Association of General Baptists. We also have started a Bible Institute under the guidance of Pastor Rene Rodriguez who is the director and teacher of the Bible Institute in California. We have approximately 30 students and 3 fully accredited teachers. We are still looking for a more appropriate location for all three cities, (Ensenada, Tijuana, and Tecate) since we have students from all three locations. Up to this date, there is a total of eight associated churches who have started working with us and ready to carry on the Great Commission. There are more meetings scheduled with pastors who want to know more of the work of General Baptists. I am honored and thankful for being part of the all the work that is being done through International Missions of General Baptist here in Mexico. God Bless you all!
General Baptists International is currently committed to $200/month to help sustain the new Bible Institute and more opportunities exist. If you would like to be a ground floor partner with this new ministry please contact GBIM.
