Mexico (Mission Network News) — This week, security forces remain in Villa Union, a small town roughly 35 miles from the U.S.-Mexico border. The death toll now stands at 23 following Saturday’s cartel attack and subsequent gun battles with Mexican security forces.
Mexico’s murder rate is up two percent this year, and that’s on top of a 15 percent spike during 2018. Violence may be the status quo, but God’s Spirit is still working in Mexico.
Executive Director Jason Woolford says one man came to the Lord in a parking lot outside a recent Mission Cry meeting. …
“He came up to me and he said, ‘Listen, I was behind the stage there drinking Heinekens at this club and I heard you talking [at the evangelistic meeting],” Woolford says. “I spent 10 years in Pelican Bay [because] I killed two people. … I don’t know why I do bad when I want to do right.”
