Hebron USA missionaries Pablo and Jan Feliciano Cruz arrive in Charlotte on Friday afternoon.
They had a relaxing day at the lake on Saturday and then Pablo preached at Oak Ridge Presbyterian Church on Sunday morning April 12. He spoke about taming the giants that we encounter in our everyday lives referencing the story of David and Goliath from 1 Samuel.
Pablo also shared the news that he has been tapped to lead a coalition of religious associations (other wise know as denominations here in the US) in Chiapas as they discuss the importance of religious tolerance. It is not uncommon for religious persecution to occur in the remote villages of Chiapas and Pablo has been called upon in the past to mediate and heal division that have occurred as a result of intolerance to different faiths or sects.
Join us Wednesday night April 15 at Clemmons Presbyterian Church to meet Pablo and Jan and learn about their ministry in Chaiaps, MX.
The board of Hebron USA is excited to announce that our friends and co-workers in service to the Tzeltal people of Chiapas, Pastor Pablo Feliciano Cruz and his wife Jan will be visiting and touring the US in April 2015. It has been two years since Pablo and Jan have been able to visit with the churches that support their ministry in Chiapas, so many of us are looking forward to catching up on their ministry and learning how we can help the growing church in Chiapas.
Pablo will be preaching, teaching or visiting the churches listed below. Please contact us if you would like a schedule a visit by Pablo and Jan to your church.

“SHARING THE LOVE OF JESUS CHRIST IN SOUTHERN MÉXICO”
Dear Friends of Chiapas:
The mission team from First Presbyterian Church in Waukegan, Illinois that is scheduled to work in Chiapas this summer now has openings for additional mission travelers to work with it. Due to unforeseen issues, several of the original members of this team will not be able to fulfill their commitment to work in Chiapas. Hebron USA is looking for people who would like to join this team.
The group will arrive on Saturday, July 12 by flight into Tuxtla Gutierrez and then travel that evening to Ocosingo, Chiapas, México. We will work with Templo Filidelfía, a new partner congregation for Hebron USA, which is located in a neighborhood east of Ocosingo. This is a more urban location than we usually work in. We will be doing site work for the new sanctuary that this congregation will be building. In addition, the group will conduct Bible school for neighborhood children during the afternoons. We expect to sleep and eat at a large house adjacent to the work site. We will worship with the members of this Presbyterian congregation and work side-by-side with them. The work will be light construction.
At the end of the week, we will visit the Mayan ruins at Toniná, which are located approximately 10 km. from Ocosingo. On the last Saturday, we relocate to San Cristóbal de Las Casas, a beautiful, small colonial city closer to the airport with abundant shopping and sightseeing opportunities. The group will fly out of Tuxtla Gutierrez on Sunday morning.
If you are interested in joining the Waukegan team on this mission trip, please contact Randy DuVall, president of Hebron USA at 757-672-1797
for further details.
