GUADALAJARA, MEXICO TEAM

The Truth Is Free!
In Guadalajara, a woman desperately searching for the truth recently became a Christian. She said, “I tried many things—yoga, psychology, tai chi, meditation, massages—and I had to pay for them all. Now when I finally find the truth, it’s free!” From its small beginnings over two decades ago, the work in Guadalajara has been growing and spreading the truth of the gospel through church plants all over the city. And now the church plants are birthing daughter churches as well as medical clinics, schools, a music academy, a seminary, an organization to help underprivileged families, a downtown outreach to addicts and prostitutes, and even a ministry to neighboring Purepecha Indians.

The Pearl of the West
Mexico’s second largest city, Guadalajara is often referred to as the Pearl of the West. And no wonder—it has six universities, a thriving art scene, and is the largest producer of software and digital components in Mexico. But like any other major city, it is fraught with problems and is fertile soil for the gospel. As the work there grows, so do the opportunities for expanding the kingdom of God in western Mexico.
