For the first time in the history of GBC in Mexico, a Mexican missionary sending agency has been established with the cooperation of the churches all over Mexico. The purpose of this agency is to work together to send Mexican missionaries (church planters) to all areas of Mexico and eventually, internationally. This is a significant accomplishment for the GBCs in Mexico as they all worked together to bring this vision to reality. Pray that many new missionary families would be raised up to meet the goal of having a Grace Brethren presence in each state of Mexico.
