MEXICO: Faith that moves mountains
Vincent and Gloria longed to share God’s Word with people in their village but they lacked the money needed to buy Bibles and Bible study resources. Their story of hardship, tears, and triumph exemplifies their deep trust and faith in the Lord—a faith that has moved mountains.
“The Lord called us to provide God’s Word throughout our village,” Vincent said. “But we suffered great financial hardship because Bibles are very expensive here in Mexico.
“We travelled to a Christian bookstore and pleaded, ‘Why do you charge so much for Bibles?’ They answered, ‘business is business.’”
Although hesitant, Vincent and Gloria purchased Bibles from the store for a short time.
“When we could no longer afford Bibles, our hearts filled with sorrow,” Vincent said. “We sobbed and embraced each other.”
Then God intervened and led a Bible League-trained Christian to find the couple.
“He asked about our trouble and explained that he was on his way to the Bible League office and could help meet our need,” Vincent recalled. “It was then we knew God heard our prayers.”
Soon, Bible League in Mexico trained Vincent and Gloria as Bible study leaders, equipping them with the Bibles, resources and training they needed. They soon began to lead Bible studies throughout their village—providing God’s Word to more people than they ever imagined!
However, when their lives began producing spiritual fruit, Vincent suddenly fell into a coma. Medical specialists gave him little hope for survival, yet Gloria remained by his side in prayer—standing strong in her faith just as she had learnt from God’s Word.
Then a miracle happened. “After three days I fully recovered!” Vincent exclaimed. “And today, after many prayers, Gloria is pregnant.”
As Vincent and Gloria live their lives for the Lord, they are seeing Him provide in ways they never imagined.
Praise God for the way he has worked so powerfully in the lives of Vincent and Gloria.
Pray for their ministry to grow and for their entire village to be transformed as people come to know Jesus Christ.
