Sunday Highlight: November 26, 2023
Traumatic experiences are part of the context for many missionaries, pastors and leaders who currently work with people who have been affected by some type of tragedy. Rick and Kelly Martínez, International Mission Board missionaries, who lead the Gateway team in Mexico City, are witnesses to this reality.
They prayed fervently, asking God for an effective way to minister to the churches and families in their convention who were experiencing suffering and trauma due to the loss of relatives or close associates during the pandemic.
It was at this time that the idea of implementing New Hope arose. New Hope, translated into Spanish as “Nueva Esperanza,” is an initiative created by a group of church planters, counselors, and oral communicators with the goal of bringing healing to those who have gone through some type of traumatic experience.
New Hope’s ministry aims to address this trauma by studying God’s Word in groups of four to six who meet weekly for a total of seven sessions.
Our church supports Rick and Kelly through our support of the Cooperative Program. Let’s pray for them and their ministry today.
