After a short lunch and a quick visit to Bible League Mexico’s office, we drove to one of Mexico City’s biggest garbage dumps. A stench just hangs in the air. This place is home to about 30 families who live in great poverty and breathe this air each day. They’re here to try to earn a living recycling and selling materials.
And we were there to meet Project Philip Bible study leaders from a local church as they share the hope of the Gospel in this area. These Philips, as we call them, come here a few times each week to lead Project Philip Bibles studies for adults and children. On that afternoon, we were humbled to present Bibles to all those who had completed their Bible studies.
As we left the dump, Paul and I realized once again that we were saying goodbye to some more of the real spiritual heroes of Bible League International’s ministry in Mexico. Here and around the world, they are the Philips who reach out to share the Gospel with the poorest of the poor.
Paul and I were soon back at the airport, grateful to have shared this busy day together. It really was exciting and gratifying for the two of us to see the impact of our work in the stories we heard and the people we met.
As I made my way home, I couldn’t help but think about the people who help make this impact possible. What a blessing you are! Thank you for helping to provide the Bibles and training that are transforming lives in Mexico—and around the world.
