Please pray for Lion of Judah, that the church will continue to grow in numbers and influence in the community so that Jesus will be glorified near and far. Contact Pastor Arturo and Elizabeth Velasco.
Luis and Karla work with the Pame people, an indigenous group that lives in the Eastern Sierra Madre in Mexico. The Pame have their own language, culture, and mindset. They live in remote villages in the mountain range, where they lack many services like a water system, telephones, roads, and medical aid. Their limited understanding of the Spanish language and their high rate of illiteracy make it difficult for them to develop and even understand the Bible and Christian doctrine.
Luis gives medical aid to the Pame in El Huizachal, and in nearby villages. He and Karla also seek to develop a healthy Pame Church through teaching, discipleshipo, and preaching. Pray that the Pame people would feel the love of Christ through the Hurtado family. Contact Dr. Luis and Karla Hurtado
