Wonderful Father, what joy we have celebrating our Risen Lord! It is incredible to think about all that our Savior went through to make a way for our redemption. Oh, Lord, may we honor You in all we do! May we grasp the magnitude of what You have done for us and continue to do! You have poured grace out on us in every way possible. Forgive us for the times we have taken that for granted. Help us, Lord, to share the good news! May our highest priorities be surrendering ourselves completely to You and helping others to find your forgiveness in their hearts. We ask this in the amazing name of Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen.

Nazarenes everywhere are sharing the missions stories of the church. Telling the story instills passion for missions. When Christ's followers know what is at stake and hear how others are obeying God's call to missions, they are challenged to participate as well. NMI is committed to helping local churches tell the missions story. We provide resources and support for the local church as it informs and educates its members, not only in what other Nazarenes are doing in missions, but how they can get involved, too.

Watch this short video describing the progress made on the Oaxaca District training center.
Your district project pledge money continues to assist our brothers and sisters in their efforts to train up leaders in the church who will then lead their local churches in fulfilling the mission of making Christlike disciples in their nation - and beyond.
Thank you for your prayers and donations.
Please watch the latest video, courtesy of our partners in Southern Mexico, David and Shelley Webb. In the video you will see an update on the district training center, where last year's project money was directed to.
And please continue to pray for them and the church as they faithfully and fearlessly minister despite the added challenges they have faced this year, particularly Covid-19. David and Shelley were both "down with it" last week but in their own words, "We are almost fully recovered from Covid. We have just a lingering cough and a little tiredness. But yeah, we have gotten through it!"

I have stayed in communication with our partners in Mexico and they continue to minister as they are able, in spite of the special challenges this year. Read the annual report of the Oaxaca district superintendent, Nicolas Guzman, which gives a description of their situation. They continue to work on the district training and education center with a focus on helping churches fulfill their mission of making disciples, as well as equipping new pastors with the education and resources they need to pastor their churches.
NW District NMI President
Churches have been sharing food baskets and supplies with their communities. To give one example, Pastor Paco and the 4th COTN of Juchitán gave out 110 pounds of chicken to 50 different families.
Work continues on the district center when possible.
The district is also continuing with a new church mission in Ixtaltepec that was started right before the coronavirus. They have given food to some of the families in the community (1st picture) and have just rented a house for the new mission to meet in (2nd picture).
