Our association has elected a new missionary to start a mission in the city of Aguascalientes. Thursday Denise and I left Huejutla and traveled 9 and1/2 hours to the city of Leon, Guanajuato where we met with pastors from the Missions Board to plan our trip to Aguascalientes. The next morning, equiped with bibles and maps, we rose early and traveled the last hour and a half to reach Aguascalientes. Excited and apprehensive we contacted Miguel (BMAA member that lives in the city) so he could tell us the location of other Baptist works in the city. To our surprise we found almost the entire southern half of the city of over 450,000 people didn’t have a Baptist church. We scouted the south eastern quadrant and 8 neighborhoods of middle class people with no significant Christian work much less Baptist. We chose the center of this quadrant as our starting point and after praying for the souls of Aguas calientes we departed for home. I am excited about the prospect of this new work. There are thousands of un-churched with vacant urban properties nearby and virtually no Christian influence. We couldn’t ask for a better location. May God bless our efforts in this new place that soon there may be a BMAA Baptist Church. A permanent witness fo salvation in Jesus to the people of Aguascalientes.
