Amid Mexico's Worst Violence, Rises Hope, and an Incredible Move of God among the Youth

Aimee Herd : Feb 20, 2012 : Evelyn Cook – Christian Post

"The Enemy uses deception through the media to paint a bleak, horrible, hopeless picture of Mexico, which isn't a true one. There's a tremendous uprising of youth coming to Jesus. Seeds that were planted year after year are coming to fruition. The time of harvest is now."

(Mexico)—About 10 years ago, short-term mission trips by youth groups to Mexico were as common as special programs at Christmas time. The drug cartels seemed to overrun any form of lawfulness, and church missions trips across the border all but stopped.

But while the Mexican Church now couldn't look to American Believers to help with needs and the salvation of those in their surrounding communities, the roots of the Gospel that were planted by those many mission trips were steadily growing.

Mary and Matthew, her husband, are missionaries in northern Tamaulipas State—one of the most dangerous areas.

But the Strouds have seen the Holy Spirit moving in a very dramatic way, among the Church and—in spite of the prevalent availability of crack cocaine—especially among the young people.

Mary doesn't deny the pervasive violence of the area, but she insists, "Victory is here, and it belongs to our Lord Jesus Christ!"

Andy Rodriguez, a worker in a Christian drug rehab program near the border has seen addicts turn to God more and more in the last three years, and as they get clean and are "on fire" for the Lord, their families take notice.

Rodriguez notes, "It's written in the Bible, when things go wrong it makes people want God. When everything's going good, they think they don't need Him."

One long-term missionary reported that, churches all over Mexico now get together at least twice a year to pray. The number of churches involved has tripled since they began. In addition, the wife of Mexico's president and some high-ranking people in the government have participated in the gatherings, something never heard of before.

While everyone knows someone who has been kidnapped, our largest church in Mexico has been able to see the release of everyone who has been prayed for by the congregation. All the victims have been family members or acquaintances of church members, but not one of our own members has been kidnapped.
