Pastor Juan Tun gathered the churches from Merida, Carrillo Puerto and Yaxley together in the village of Quintana to celebrate the 4th anniversary of Iglesia Bautista Ixoye. Pastor Pablo Borges planted this church four years ago with help from Vivos en Cristo in Portland Oregon and Hispanics for Christ.
More than 50 people came from the churches to celebrate and over 100 joined them from the village. They played soccer, basketball, worshiped and enjoyed a dinner together on their property where they are building their new church building. Pastor Fausto Ek May from Yaxley delivered a message and Pastor Pablo and his team led worship.
This July Randy Schmor will be bringing a Gateway team from Hillcrest Baptist Church in Sultan, WA to work with Juan and the church in Merida to help establish a new church in the village of Huhi, outside Merida
