Bible Class

Introducing Paul and Barb Thiessen

Stephen Grant

Our family moved to Zapopan, Jalisco, Mexico in September of 2007.  At that time we had a rented hall, where we held a weekly Bible reading and prayer meeting, as well as a Sunday school work followed by a gospel meeting each Lord’s day.   In December of 2007 about 100 believers helped us deliver 120,000 gospel texts, followed by a series of gospel meetings.  The work continued that way for some months, adding a ministry meeting on the Lord’s day morning.   In January of 2009 a group of 10 local believers met to break bread for the first time.  We have seen several saved and baptized, as well as others added to the fellowship.  

In September of 2013 we began a consistent outreach work in the South of Guadalajara, working with Jonathan and Hannah Seed.  After several series of gospel meetings and teaching meetings, we saw the work moving toward the formation of another local assembly.  Some of these believers were already in fellowship in Zapopan, but the travel time made it difficult to be at all the meetings.  Among the ones that were saved in the South, was a couple who had been attending for some time.  Several young people were saved, which was a great encouragement to us.   A new local church was formed in the South of Guadalajara on November 29, 2015. 

The two small companies in the greater metropolitan area  of Guadalajara keep us busy with 8 meetings a week.  As the occasions present themselves we also travel to other assemblies in Mexico with the specific purpose of teaching the believers. Two of our children are married. Our son Joel and his wife, Amanda, live in Omaha, Nebraska.  We are looking forward to their visit this July to help us with the annual children’s meetings.  One year ago, Erika married Ricky Sawatzky, who was already serving the Lord in Irapuato, Guanajuato, Mexico.   Our youngest is completing university studies in Mexico.
