Casey and Teri helped start a new church in Huehuetoca in 2009. Huehuetoca is a community on the northern edge of the greater Mexico City metropolitan area. The King of Kings Christian Church is now a strong and growing group of believers who are transforming their community and the lives of their friends, family, and neighbors with the power of the good news of Jesus Christ. A great work like this could only be accomplished as we remain faithful to God in prayer, sacrificial giving, testimony, and commitment to the ministry and Word of God. Please join us in praying that the work of raising up new churches in Mexico (and beyond) will proceed without hindrance or limitation.
Please let me tell you why we do what we do with a story. On a sunny afternoon in January, I was in a taxi riding to the Immigration offices for an appointment. I had been talking with my taxi driver, Manuel about how he grew up. His parents both died at age 50. He grew up catholic but admitted to being barely involved in church. He confessed that the Bible’s profesies of the end times were scary and he had avoided reading the Bible for that reason.
Traffic was packed that day but had only slowed to a trickle not a stop when I asked Manuel an important question. “Can you tell me how you believe we get to heaven?”
The answer serves to remind all followers of Christ that we should be both followers of Christ and fishers of men. Manuel responded, “I don’t know what to tell you. I wouldn’t even know where to begin.”
God called the Hancock family to join the work of starting new churches in Mexico to give hope of eternal life to people like Manuel.
