Above is a photo of an ARM portable baptistry being used in Cambodia by Joe Garman. HUNDREDS are being used on mission fields in every corner of the earth!
Last year, we supplied ELEVEN portable baptistries for jails in Puerto Rico.
NOW WE HAVE A REQUEST FOR TEN MORE BAPTISTRIES FOR SOUTHEAST ASIA.
We are investing thousands of dollars in building and donating these units.
If you, your Sunday School class, or your church could sponsor even one of these, that would be terrific. If you can only make a gift toward this baptistry fund, that would be greatly appreciated, as well. Thanks for your prayers and support.
From ARM's Alfredo Jose Aparicio
MY URGENCY this time is to REQUEST YOUR PRAYERS in a very specific matter concerning this ministry.
July 26, a new law was issued in Mexico City. It has to do with “land use.” Let me explain a little. We own our office and run our ministry from an apartment in a housing complex: condominium. This new law states that if we have offices in an area for housing, we must pay a fine of $9,000.00 US Dollars, and spend from 9 to 12 years in jail.
Our apartment is not big. It only has around 200 sq. feet. (It has a very small bathroom, a tiny living room, and two bedrooms). This area serves us to minister in three different ways. We host the Bible Correspondence School, Christian Youth Congress (like Christ In Youth), and Fraternidad de las Iglesias de Cristo en Mexico, A. R.). We started our Bible Correspondence School here in May of 1977, without any trouble at all!
I went to the authorities and talked to them about this matter. Their answer was that I have to buy or rent a specific place designated for offices or services, something like a commercial space. However, these so called commercial areas are very expensive. Rents are very high! The reason of this new law is because political campaigns are coming up this year and in 2012, and they need lots of Money for their political campaigns. Our taxes are very high already, and now the government wants more money.
The real problem is Money. If we rent, we would have to pay a monthly rent of around $1,526.71 US Dollars. Tenants ask for two rents in the first month. If we bough a proper office space in a commercial area, as required by the City Government, we would have to pay around $211,132.42 US Dollars.
It is Satan who is working hard to stop our ministry. And, this is because we are reaching a lot of people in the Hispanic world! However, we know that God is the Only One Who has all the power to defeat the Devil!
I am so grateful with the Lord to see how He sustains us and makes His Word grow and expand all over the world. We are amazed to see It reach parts we never imagined It would enter.
It is true, I am puzzled to see our lessons reach the Middle East, as well as to Muslims and to Communist Countries also. We have our lessons on the internet and this is how our lessons are being studied in such countries as Afghanistan, Iran, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Argelia, Morocco, Oman, Qatar, Sudan, Tunes, Syria, Indonesia, Lebanon, China, North Korea, Vietnam, Nepal, Laos, Congo, Angola, and so on. In some countries people are not allowed to receive the normal mail or letters, but the internet has free access. People can read literature on the internet they could not read otherwise. In the old continent, people are reading our lessons and learning about the Bible and God. So, this makes it urgent for us to re-design our materials to make them more attractive on the internet. Our Bible lessons must look different to attract more readers. Besides, our advanced courses are not on the internet yet, and we must work hard on this. My son, Jesser, is working on this project right now. Our goal is to make all of our courses available on the internet for people to download and print them if they like, all over the world.
In our now worldwide ministry, God harvested 72 people in June, who were baptized in Christ. And, 98 of our students graduated of our advanced lessons.
Since we have been putting a lot of emphasis on evangelism in our local congregation, we did not have Sunday School during June, but we went out to evangelize most parts of the city of Cuernavaca. We gathered used clothes, toys, and medicine to have a Christian Festival on the last Sunday in June. We had visitors who were exposed to the Word of God. They heard us through different means of communication, such as plays, music, preaching, and other. Also, they had available free haircuts, medical checkups, and groceries. We were able to hand out 3,280 Chick tracts “Esta fue tu vida”, This used to be your life. Now, let me share with you a letter received in June:
“Dear director, I cannot find the proper words I need to thank you for the great help you have been to me. I destroyed my life and my family’s since I used to use drugs and drink a lot. I had an excellent job working for the Mexican oil company: Petróleos Mexicanos, where I used to earn around $5,000.00 US Dollars a month. On a weekend, after a party, I was driving, but I was drunk, and I ran over five people, killing two and badly injured three. I ended up in jail. It was in jail where I started receiving your courses every two weeks. My eyes were opened and I was released. I am free but without Money and withour my family. I hope in God all will be better soon. The Bible is now my treasure. This is now so important to me. I am so grateful to the Lord for putting you in my path…” (Antonio Yañez, Comalcalco, Tabasco, Mexico).
PLEASE HELP US PRAY FOR THE FOLLOWING NEEDS: We need more funds to operate. This is, we get around 2,120 new students every month, and our expenses are $3,650 dollars, only in postal services, which represents almost 80% of our income.
It is so wonderful to see how God takes care of us. Every morning, I walk north of my house to catch public transportation. But, on June 29, I was impelled to walk south instead. An hour later, my wife called me to see how I was doing. She had heard that at the time I went out of the house, people, businesses, and homes were robbed on the side I used to walk. This is another example on how God cares for us.
So, please help us by taking this need to our Mighty Lord in your daily prayers! With all of my heart, I thank you!
I thank you for your prayers, as I see God’s hand in my life, my family, and the ministry.
Your fellow servant in the ministry of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ,
Alfredo José Aparicio
