Sergio and Beth Matassa – Chiapas, Mexico
I’ve been blessed to know Sergio & Beth Matassa for about 10 years now. We worked together as Apartment Church Planters at Oak View Baptist Church in Irving, TX, where Sergio later became the Minister of Missions. From that post Sergio developed a heart for the indigenous peoples of Chiapas, Mexico, where today, he and Beth serve. Their work consists of raising up and training indigenous leaders to plant churches in the thousands of unreached, remote villages throughout Chiapas. Along with bringing the Gospel their organization G.L.E.D, Global Leadership and Economic Development, provides life-saving water filtration systems and takes on other empowerment projects for the villages. If you’re looking for a missions partnership opportunity, Chiapas is a great place to invest people and other resources. Sergio will be in Southeast Louisiana this week and he’ll be available to meet with anyone interested in partnering with him or hearing more about missions possibilities in Mexico’s interior. Three specific opportunities:
- Wednesday, Dec 8, Sergio will be speaking at Bedico Baptist Church, 6pm.
- Thursday, from 2-4pm, we will be at PJ’s in Madisonville for a meet and greet with Sergio & Beth. Come by for coffee and conversation.
- Sunday AM, 10:30, Sergio will be our Prayer Focus at Bridge Church and will share about opportunities in Chiapas.
- Bridge Church will return to Chiapas May 28-June 5, 2011 for a Medical & Evangelism trip. Jump on board!!!
