A little over a week ago, I asked you to commit to pray for the city of Durango, Durango, Mexico without having all the details to share. Well that was because, recently I was contacted by our friend Jonathan Sanchez who shared the vision that he had to go back home and be used by the Lord in a mighty way. He was living and working in Dallas, Texas for about a year. During his time there he felt the Lord stirring his heart to return to his home town of Durango, Durango, Mexico where he could use his unique God given talents to reach people for HIS kingdom. He attends a Calvary Chapel church plant and is starting a ministry in a local juvenile correctional facility there. He also paints graffiti (as seen in this video clip) with an evangelistic message to lead people in repentance to Jesus. Our ministry would like to provide him with prayer support, Bibles and possibly host a mission team there to help support this endeavor. I have asked him to post periodically on this blog to help keep everyone informed of his progress along the way. Below is his initial post and greetings from Durango, Durango.
It’s an honor to share what God is beginning to do in this city ”Durango, Durango, México. Our starting point is a ”Youth Detention Center” (Center of Reintegration and Treatment for Juvenile Offenders).
One of the ways to share the Gospel of God is through Graffiti and Skateboarding, I believe that God can use all of our talents but over all the things he uses our heart to share His love; like we can see in Matthew 25: 36 ”I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me”.
Sending greetings from Durango,
