Indiana & Texas Work Teams


n the month of January four groups from Indiana, totaling 36 people, came to serve at Colegio Biblico. Rick Smalling, Senior Pastor at LaFontaine Christian Church in LaFontaine, Indiana, recruited workers, organized teams, raised funds for materials and supervised the work at Colegio’s Mexico Campus. They took part in building Work Team Housing (dormitories for 20 men and 20 women) and installing fans in the Multipurpose Building. They also painted the interior of Duplex #3 and #4. The teams brought gifts for students, personnel families and teachers and had the opportunity to share the word of God in chapel and at a local church. On January 20-26 a group of 23 from Compass Chris-

tian Church in Colleyville, Texas, came to Colegio. They worked on the construction of Duplex #5 for married student housing on the Mexico Campus. They did the framing, decking, roofing, electrical wiring, and installed doors, windows and insullation. On Duplex#3 they installed the kitchen cabinets and ceiling fans. The team provided materials and labor for all their projects. On Saturday the 22nd the Compass Team presented a children’s show where about 250 people from the community attended. They also brought gifts for students and personnel as well as for needy families in the area. May God continue to bless your lives as you share the Father’s love with your brothers and sisters.
