This is how we #tellabetterstory! I have been looking forward to reading this article on the nations coming to us through immigration and refugees in Facts & Trends by World Relief's Jenny Yang and finally got around to it this morning and I get to read about our Montgomery Baptist Association's Mixteco ministry with a huge quote from our very own Lisa Chilson Rose! Awesome! Several from Gateway Baptist have been involved in this as well and Gateway is hosting the Mixteco Summit January 21-23. Please read the whole article. This is why I am doing the work that I am doing. We are seeing a massive opportunity for the gospel to reach the many people that God is catapulting to us!
From Lisa's part of the article:
"Evangelical churches ministering to immigrants are seeing tremendous fruit born of their efforts. For instance, a number of interdenominational churches in Montgomery, Alabama, collaborated to serve the more than 3,000 Mixteco people who live in central Alabama. The Mixteco are a largely unreached people group from Mexico."
“Christians in Montgomery are working hard to invest in relationships and build trust while sharing the gospel as the opportunity occurs,” says Lisa Rose, who leads Montgomery’s Mixteco interdenominational task force."
“We serve them by providing English as a Second Language (ESL) and health classes, as well as helping them navigate immigration laws. Something as simple as assisting in filling out paperwork can go a long way to developing relationships.”
