Mexico’s unemployment rate is off the chart! There is no PPP (Payment Protection Plan) in Mexico. Electricity was cut by the CFE power company in 5,000,000 more homes that cannot pay their bills. 50% of manufacturing factories are closed and the factories that are open have laid off 50% of their workers. Millions of people in Mexico do not have jobs, do not have money to pay their bills, do not have money for food, and are very desperate!
For the first time in VCH history, we have offered Bible School classes to students for FREE because they nor their parents can pay the tuition costs of $300/month. The students are on work scholarships that helps us with projects and maintenance at the school.
We believe in the vision of the IHI Bible School to train up nationals to reach nationals to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ and destroy the works of the devil. As The apostle Paul said to Timothy –
“The things [the doctrine, the precepts, the admonitions, the sum of my ministry] which you have heard me teach in the presence of many witnesses, entrust [as a treasure] to reliable and faithful men who will also be capable and qualified to teach others.” 2 Timothy 2:2 AMP
We still believe in preparing future pastors, preachers, teachers, evangelists, missionaries, and godly businessmen and women who can establish the Kingdom of God on this earth! We still believe in reaching the lost at any cost and seeing God save, heal, and change the hearts of hurting people. We need your help at the IHI BIBLE SCHOOL to go forward.
IHI Bible School is the Hub of the VCH Ministry
Our staff and students are winning souls and making disciples. They are being in trained practical and dynamic Kingdom Principles. They are distributing food to the hungry as they share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with the lost. They are continuing to build homes and repair roofs for the widows and the humble families.
We are continuing to feed and reach the children for Christ. It costs $19,750 per month just for operational expenses for the Bible school. We have $11,500 coming in and we are working on the remaining $8,250 per month to reach our goal. Will you please help us by becoming an IHI monthly partner?
Your monthly support of $1,000,$500, $250, $100 per month or whatever amount God leads you to give is greatly appreciated. Please note for IHI on your donation. To give online, you can go through our webpage www.vcharvesters.org or call our office at (956)727-0059.
Vanessa Gutierrez graduated in 2020. She then married IHI graduate Pastor HiIlario who graduated in 2014. Together, they are pastoring the very first church that Donna and I started in Nuevo Laredo in 1992, which is now called “Anchor of Hope.” All during Covid, they have been ministering to the humble people in their congregation by distributing food and ministering to the children.
Vanessa’s mother, Maria de Rosario, is now a current student at the IHI. Maria and her husband, Diego, are also
pastors and have been giving out food to the Nuevo Laredo doctors in the hospitals during this Covid season so that they can continue working. She told Donna and I, “This IHI Bible school is incredible and I am learning so much that I never knew before that will really help me in the ministry. This is so practical and helpful - it is like gold!” Our goal is to train nationals to reach others with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. That is exactly what these students and graduates are doing! Thank you for your continued support to go forward!
We are continuing to build homes and repair roofs for the widows and the humble families. We just finished Jaime and Perla’s family home next to their mother’s home that we built for Isabell.
She is very happy in her new home and is attending church with Pastor Arnulfo.
We are now building Margarita’s house. Her family was living in the worst house that we’ve ever seen so far! Just pieces of scrap plywood nailed together with different boards to make the walls.
The roof was made of all types of different sheet metal and corrugated roofing to try to protect the house from the weather. Every time it rained, water would run through the cracks, gaps and holes.Plastic sheeting and sheets were nailed to the inside of the ceiling so that the water ran over to the walls.
Channels were dug in the dirt so that the water would run outside! This family of five has lived in this home for 5 years. Help for these humble widows and families can be sent to VCH noted for “Roofs/Homes” for project Matthew 25:40.
One of the greatest joys that we have in VCH is to teach God’s truth to other faithful future ministers who will be able to pass the truth on to others. The International Harvesters Institute Bible School is an evangelistic ministerial training center that God has raised up for this very purpose. As you continue to support this great ministerial training center, you too are making history. Your contribution helps prepare these ministers to continue to go forward with the Good News of salvation to the world.
As you join together with us in the neighborhood roofing and housing projects, and help us to distribute food to the hungry and minister to the needy and desperate, you’re actually being a kingdom world changer, making a difference in the destiny of those that we minister to during these chaotic, pandemic times.
“And the King will answer and say to them, Truly I say to you, to the extent that you did it to one of these brothers of Mine, even the least of them, you did it to Me.” Matthew 25:40
Thank you for your prayers and support as together we are touching lives for an eternity!
In the Victorious harvest with you, David, Donna and the VCH staff
