Paul Thiessen (Zapopan)

December 2010 came to a close with smiling faces and thankful hearts as we scanned the “official” building permit for the hall here in Zapopan. Living in the city means, of course, following city building codes and zoning laws. No problem, right? A believer should always be more than willing to following the law but sometimes the waits, line ups, and exceptions to every clause and rule seem almost endless and all but impossible to fulfill.

Paul left this AM for a short series of gospel meetings with Jason Wahls in El Barril, SLP. The meetings will be Monday-Friday in the late afternoons. Jason and Shelley are living in Zacatecas, which is a 40 minute drive from El Barril.

Next Sunday the assembly in Zapopan celebrates 2 years meeting formally as an assembly. Over the 2 years, 8 people have been added to the fellowship and several baptisms have been held as well. We are looking forward, in the will of the Lord, to finishing and moving into the new hall during 2011. Most Sunday evenings the little tin hall has about 60-70 people in.

On the 30 and 31st of December, several of the believers gathered each day to pass out 2011 Good News Calendars, a VIA magazine and an invitation to the hall. Almost 2000 were given out door to door in the area surrounding the hall. Several calls came in during the weekend and a couple visited the hall on Sunday as a result of their invitation.
