Reviving Prayer in Ometepec, Mexico
What happens when you ask the Lord to revisit a place where Moms in Prayer was planted 13 years ago? He not only answers, but does so much more! Central America Director Olga de Tamacas and one of her team members, Olivia, asked the Lord to revive the work of the Holy Spirit in Ometepec, Mexico where women needed to be reenergized in prayer. Four months later God answered by sending Olga to this southwestern city in the state of Guerrero thanks to the invitation from Bernarda, a women’s ministry leader.
At the church where the event was to be held, the members’ faith and unity was astounding. Every person fasted and prayed 40 days prior to the women gathering! The pastors also supported Bernarda in her work and a number of women assisted her. During the Moms in Prayer two-day session, the older men cooked and served the food while the younger men took care of the many children who came with their mothers! Olga thanked the Lord as she witnessed them working so hard to make sure every woman was able to attend the seminar without interruption.
More than140 women from different towns in the area attended the first day. The audience listened intently as lesson one of the Igniting a Passion to Pray curriculum was shared including several testimonies. The women were encouraged to carry out their children’s shepherding through prayer. The following day Olga taught the remainder of the prayer curriculum. Throughout the event, the Holy Spirit touched hearts and six women accepted Christ as their Savior. Almost 100 moms registered and out of these, 47 were interested in starting groups.
When Bernarda followed up with the women, 26 groups had already formed. We thank the Lord for these precious moms who allowed the Holy Spirit to ignite a passion in their hearts to pray for their children and schools in an area where there are many challenges with drug activity, money laundering and sexual immorality. May these mothers experience great hope as they gather to pray.
Please pray that
• God will transform lives in Ometepec and the surrounding areas through the mothers’ faithful prayers, trusting God every step of the way.
• the Lord will protect groups and develop strong Moms in Prayer leadership in Ometepec.
• groups will continue to grow throughout this area and every region of Mexico.
For as the soil makes the sprout come up and a garden causes seeds to grow,so the Sovereign Lord will make righteousness and praise spring up before all nations. Isaiah 61:11 (NIV)
