With Mexico City having taken all Covid restrictions off at the end of February and the count of new omicron cases falling, we have seen our attendances continually going up with a high day of 236 in church with 181 taxing our auditorium's capacity just like in the good old pre-Covid days.  Our routes have been a little lower than usual, but we have been seeing as many as over 130 drive-in as several families have returned.  To continue reading the update from Clint Rardin, please click on the link below.

In December, we celebrated 25 years in Mexico.  God gave us the gift of seeing several people return to church that month.  Some I hadn't seen in almost two years and others in more than eight years.  Darlene, a diplomat from Haiti, who was saved and baptized in our church, hadn't come to church in almost two years because of Covid.  To continue reading the update from Clint Rardin, please click on the link below.

Today I was counting our blessings and how grateful I am for even the little things that make life pleasant.  Every morning, I walk to our church to pray with our schoolteachers.  It is a pleasant five-minute walk through a nicely landscaped apartment complex with plenty of trees.  A "cold" front has come in lately and it has been nice to wake up to a temperature in the low 50's and walk to school with fallen yellow and brown leaves crunching under my feet.  To continue reading the update from Clint Rardin, please click on the link below.

Thank you for praying for the opening of the new mission near the airport.  We have so far given out 15,000 invitations door-to-door.  We are in the rainy season where it rains almost every day.  Great time to open a mission, right?  The first day late afternoon we got rained on pretty good, so I prayed that God would hold back the rain while we went door to door.  It rained while we drove to our location and rained after getting back in the car, but not once since the first day did it rain while passing out invitations!  God is [...]

Even though the federal government said that Mexico City should be in red light again, our Mayor said they did not take into account the millions in the city that have been vaccinated; so, the city would remain in orange, but without the previous economic restrictions.  To continue reading the update from Clint Rardin, please click on the link below.

God blessed our church in April and May beginning with three baptisms on Sunday including Sara, a woman in our church who had seen her grown sons reached through the RU program and has brought many family members out.  Now she has finally become a member.  To continue reading the update from Clint Rardin, please click the link below.

The theme for this year is "He that Winneth Souls is Wise."  Much of the preaching has been towards that theme.  In Sunday school we have been studying the ministry of Christ which is full of lessons on soulwinning.   To continue reading the update from Clint Rardin, please click on the link below.

We are so thankful that since February 21, we have been able to meet in our church again. We are also thankful that we were able to meet for six weeks in the social hall rented by our mission.  Since returning to services in our building, our attendance has gone up to 176 despite not running our buses and having about 50 members still not attending because of Covid.  We are still having two services, but if all the adults were together, every seat in the auditorium would be filled.

The last two weeks we have seen our church attendance get up to about two thirds of what it was before Covid (167 this week).  We are not running the buses currently, although several of the families from the routes are coming.  The families of the most physically vulnerable as well as several doctors and nurses in our church still have not returned to church (about 70 people).

As I wrote in our last prayer letter, the church was on all eight cylinders with the highest average attendances, souls saved and baptised every week, and 12 members received into the church in just a few weeks; then we hit the wall of the corona scare in Mexico.  To continue reading the update from Clint Rardin, please click the link below.

From the 18th of January, when we returned from taking three of our kids back to the States to Bible college until the 15th of March, our church has had the best two months of its history.  We have had high days of attendance of up to 255, with many new visitors bouth from the routes and the neighborhood around us, and we are not even in an evangelistic campaign with our buses running the normal averag of about 100.

This past December, we were able to attend a missions conference in Albuquerque, New Mexico, where my brother, Don, administers a Christian school.  We are so thankful that Pastor Hudson and the people of Bella Vista Baptist Church decided to partner with us to reach the people of Mexico City for Christ.  To continue reading the update from Clint Rardin, please click on the link below.

The Lord hath done great things for us, whereof we are glad (Psalm 126:3).  This Thanksgiving season, we are rejoicing and giving thanks to God for how good He has been to Liberty Baptist Church here in Mexico City. On November 10, we celebrated the church's fifteenth anniversary.  God has brought us a long way since the church began after a week-long evangelistic meeting with a group of about 35 people meeting in a classroom in the back of a private elementary school.  To continue reading the update from Clint Rardin, please click the link below.

This summer we had the blessing of taking our second son, Jackson, to Bible college to study for the ministry as well as return our daughter, Kellie, to finish her last year there at Fairhaven Baptist College.  We also were able to visit some churches in the States and we feel privileged to become partners in missions with Lighthouse Baptist Church in Alexandria, VA, as well as Longview Baptist Temple in Texas.  In our absence our church had a back-to-school Sunday with a great summer attendance of 277 with over 150 on the buses, 94 children, and 183 adults.
