AUDIO BIBLES IN THE MOUNTAINS
UIMA has partnered with La Fuente Ministries to bring the Bible to the people in the Sierra Mountains. Realizing that not many were able to read, La Fuente Ministries went to work on distributing audio Bibles. Watch the video to hear the full story and see how impactful these audio Bibles are!
COVID-19 Impact on Missions
Written by Bethany Rocha, Office Manager
This seems to be the heading for everything- everywhere, doesn’t it? Well, it is quite the topic here at UIMA as well. We wanted to share with you how this global pandemic is affecting not just the ministries in UIMA but also the people in Mexico.
As of late, the Mexico/U.S. border is looking at possibly shutting down, sooner than later. That fact alone put everyone in the hangars into action. Why? Our ministry is in Mexico, right? Why would we be trying to get back to the States? For several reasons, and we want to share them with you.
First, we have several big maintenance projects that have been scheduled for the end of March. These projects, unfortunately, cannot be put off with or without a pandemic. We are currently in the process of an engine change for 901, and one of our main planes, 29C, is in need of a 100 hour inspection. Without this inspection, 29C will have to be grounded. Grounding the plane would only prevent any possible ministry with 29C. Our goal is to get 29C back to the States as soon as possible, complete the inspection, and Lord willing, send it right back down before a possible border closing.
Another concern for the UIMA family is one of our families in Mexico needing to return to the States for medical reasons. We are working to get them up with the plane, so they can have the help they need here in the States.
We serve a MIGHTY and AWESOME God! As we all cry out to Him during this time, we must remember that He is in control.
Isaiah 55: 8-9 says, “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.”
