Barbara continues to write a tract each month that deals with a subject relative to a present event or historical importance. Recently the tract was about the 49th anniversary of man landing on the moon. It gave itself easily to speak of the One who made the moon and visited man on earth. We print and distribute 2000 around the hall monthly. We do see the occasional visitor who came having learned of us by the tract.

Our weekly street meeting is held on the outskirts of the city where we pick up our Sunday school children. Last week some young men sat out on the sidewalk and listened. They called out several times during the preaching but were very friendly afterward as we greeted them. We are praying that the Lord will speak to them as they listen to the gospel.

Earlier this month we enjoyed a week of ministry meetings considering young people who changed the tide of history. It was good for all of us to hear the Word of God. Next week we look forward to our annual Sunday school program. That will be followed by our annual VBS. We hope that as in other years, we will see about 100 children come to the hall to hear and learn the Word of God. We trust this will also build up the attendance during the Sunday school year.

The assembly in Zapopan is small, yet we are grateful for the blessing the Lord has given recently. In the last few months, three people have told us that they have trusted Christ as Saviour. This is encouraging indeed, and we thank the Lord for seeing fruit in the gospel. For over ten years there has been a week of children's meetings each summer in the El Vergel hall. Besides the regular Sunday school students, many children from the nearby areas attend. Many begin asking when the meetings will be well before the school year has ended! The schedule hasn't changed much over the years and includes singing, quizzes, a Bible lesson with a corresponding verse and handwork. After a snack, the children are returned to their homes.
