Our newest Bible Institute in Mexico is located in Mexico City area and is directed by Alejandro Salinas. Alejandro spent some time in Southern California and was a graduate of one of our Bible Institutes conducted by Pastor Rene Rodriguez and Sheffield Association. Besides Mexico City, Pastor Salinas has associated churches in the Oaxaca area of Mexico.
Pastor Salinas reports that he had communicated with the churches in Oaxaca concerning the pastors’ relief program but due to COVID-19 the authorities in Oaxaca will not allow anyone to go in or out until the quarantine is over. So for now he has set the money aside until he can visit with the pastors in that area. He also reports that the funds for Mexico City were used to help some needy church members because they are widows or parents without work.
This is not the first time we have seen some pastors pass the gift along to people they considered more needy than themselves.
