The Americas: Mexico

God has called together a team of committed, eager people who are taking responsibility for the ministry in Mexico. Under the capable leadership of the national team, the team has incorporated the ministry under Mexican law. CBSI Mexico is now an independent, autonomous ministry. The ministry in Mexico is growing every year. Currently there are classes in a half dozen cities. Additionally Mexico is leading in the development and support of ministries in other Central American countries and the Caribbean.

Mexico was the first country in CBSI to develop a national ministry for the children..."in thelanguage of the country." Children now learn along with their parents. CBSI not only provides materials but fodder for discussion around the dinner table at home. Unity of family is taking a positive step. The ministry of CBSI is a family and a church affair in Mexico.
