Dear VCH Co-Harvester,
“Simon Peter replied, “You are the Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed), the Son of the living God.” Then Jesus answered him, “Blessed [happy, spiritually secure, favored by God] are you, Simon son of Jonah, because flesh and blood (mortal man) did not reveal this to you, but My Father who is in heaven. And I say to you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My church; and the gates of Hades (death) will not overpower it.” Matthew 16:16-18
WE ARE THE LIVING CHURCH
The Apostle Peter received the divine revelation that Jesus is the chosen, anointed Messiah. Jesus is the Cornerstone upon which we are built up as living stones for God’s holy purpose. Many people have been saved in an actual physical church building, and we are the living stones, the spiritual building of Christ. We have been called and chosen to be our Lord’s representatives on this earth. We are His ministers of reconciliation and the ambassadors for our King! “So then you are no longer strangers and aliens [outsiders
without rights of citizenship], but you are fellow citizens with the saints (God’s people), and are [members] of God’s household, having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus Himself as the [chief] Cornerstone, in whom the whole structure is joined together, and it continues [to increase] growing into a holy temple in the Lord [a sanctuary dedicated,set apart, and sacred to the presence of the Lord]. In Him [and in fellowship with one another] you also are being built together into a dwelling place of God in the Spirit.” Ephesians 2:19-22AMP
One of our desires in VCH is to establish fruit that remains. In order to do this, we are also building physical church buildings so that the spiritual living building can be established and built up for the kingdom of God! We are all about winning souls and makingdisciples!
At the end of January, we held our 2021 Mexico Pastor’s National Convention which was at our International Harvester’s Institute Bible School in Nuevo Laredo, Mexico. It was a tremendous time of teaching, ministry, impartation and anointing! Pastors Pedro and Leticia Cantu were guest speakers who ministered along with our VCH/IHI Staff. We also taught on the counseling and deliverance ministry called SOZO. The 110 pastors and ministers were so blessed as they received very practical teaching and also spiritual impartation. At the end we anointed each one with their own anointing oil prepared by one of our own pastors.
CONSTRUCTING THE CHURCH
In 2021, we will continue to reach the unreached and tell the untold, to proclaim the Good News and bring in God’s fold! We are continuing to teach the seeking and train the young, discipling new converts one by one. We are continuing to feed the hungry and help the poor, heal the sick, salvation and more! And we would ask you to help us to continue to build houses of worship and prayer, seeking to establish a people who care! Enclosed is a list of our 2021 church construction needs. Please pray about helping us to support these pastors who are working to bring God’s kingdom to this earth! Maybe God would use you to help one pastor’s special needs. Maybe more than one. Whatever you can do will be a blessing to help us to build the body of Christ in Mexico, Cuba, and in El Salvador. Untold millions are still untold! Untold millions are out in the fold. Who will tell them of Jesus’ love and the heavenly mansions that are waiting above? Pictured above are three of the five new church properties. Pastors Raul & Naomi pastor a congregation in Nuevo Laredo. Raul graduated from the IHI Bible School and Naomi is finishing her last semeter. In the middle is pastor Patricio and Hilda in Axtla on their new church property. They already have a large congregation meeting under a metal roof there. Pastor Miguel & Estefani are in Tuxpan and they are meeting with many on the property under a metal roof as well.
