Befriending Mexican Farm Workers

I saw this in an old newsletter - clearly there is a need for Scriptures in Spanish not just in Ontario.
I'm thinking that Peter and Jake are Kroeker brothers from Rosenort, Manitoba

Two brothers, Jake and Peter, shared some of their experiences in distributing Spanish Scriptures:


P. Jake, I hear that you are planning to go to Itsky River Farms again this summer. What is that all about?


J. Every summer Itsky Farms hires more than a hundred Mexicans to take care of the vegetables on the farm. The men come without their families, so they are eager to connect with us. For four summers we have befriended them by providing music and refreshments and sharing God’s Word with them. Every year we have a welcome party and give them easy-reading Spanish New Testaments.


P. What kind of music do you offer them? I understand Spanish-speaking people have a much more flamboyant taste in music than we do. Can you provide them with music they appreciate?


J. We are very fortunate to have a group from a Spanish church in Brandon come to lead the workers in worship. You know some of the people in that group, right?


P. Yes, Anne and I taught English to some new employees at Maple Leaf Pork. Most of them were from El Salvador and were hoping to become Canadian citizens and bring their families after working here for a year.


J. Were you able to share your faith with them?


P. We tried to respect their rights not to have a new religion imposed on them, but it did not take long for a few of them and us to recognize each other as Christians. We got some NIrV Bibles from LifeLight and read portions of Scripture with them as an English exercise. This small group of El Salvadoran Christians later joined a group of Mexican Christians, who also worked at Maple Leaf, for regular services. That is the group that now serves the Itsky Farm workers with music, testimonies, worship and invitations to accept Christ. Jake, how do the workers respond when you offer the Spanish NTs?


J. They all seem happy to receive them. We hand them out at the beginning of the summer so we can have Bible studies with them.


P. It seems that throughout the world there are many people who are eager to get Bibles. In our school in Mexico the kids almost fought to hand out the Bibles for our daily Bible studies. In another school, a Grade 5 boy had just received a New Testament. At recess he sat at his desk reading the Bible stories. At the end of recess, he remarked, “The Bible must be one of the most interesting books to read.”


J. We will never know all the results and changes that the Bibles from LifeLight will produce in the lives in the recipients. It would be exciting to observe the effects God’s Word in their lives.

Bridging the Gap

Part of our team at LifeLight attended the Mark Schultz concert, where World Vision  had invited us to join them with a table of  Bibles ,as they continue to speak for the children of the world who go without food and water and try to bring aid to those who are less fortunate then we in Canada. Our role at LifeLight was to provide Bibles if there where any people in the crowd who wanted to give one to a friend or needed one for themselves.

We gave away over 20 Bibles last night, but one story reminds me of the power in God's word.

A man came in off the street just as the show was starting, not part of the concert crowd and asked for a Bible. He looked tired and worn out. Calvery from the Calvery Temple Church (cool to work for a church with your own name)brought him to our table and the man explained that he had lost his way in life, but remembered that when he used to read his Bible, it guided  him, helped him stay on track with God and his family. We gave him a copy of our LifeLight Bible and we prayed with him, and with tears in his eyes he thanked us over and over again for the Bible and our prayers. The man told us that he was now ready to stay on the right path with God, and that his new Bible would be the light that guided him.

What a powerful reminder of what Gods word can do for you and me. 

Your word is a lamp to guide my feet and a light for my path. (Psalms 119:105 NLT)

Buy a Toy/Get a Bible!

You can go give a Bible away at any event if you allow God to help you, even at a toy sale.

Liam Winter was cleaning his room and decided that he would sell some toys to buy a game that he had not yet saved up enough money to purchase. He also wanted to give away Bibles to help LifeLight spread the good news. His solution... With every purchase of a toy, the customer would receive an adult or children's Bible for free!!! And he gave away 5 kids and 2 adult Bibles... which he donated some of his profits to. One of his friends named Sarah donated money to cover the rest!

What a great day and a great example of how to get God involved in all we do. Way to go Liam!!

The Truth

I am Worthless.......
I have failed......
There is no hope for me.......
Nobody loves me......
I'm in this alone......
God does not love me anymore....

These are just a few examples of the Lies that we as people often allow to linger in our minds. We let circumstances, actions and thoughts that we are not proud of trick us into believing these lies. It doesn't take long before we give way for these lies to determine how we live and how we treat others.

But the reality is that, the Word of God contains the absolute truth about us. The words from God recorded in this Book are the absolute truth. God shows us what he thinks of us and how he sees us, in the Bible. All the negative thoughts mentioned above are not anywhere in the Bible and are therefore nothing more but lies!

It says in God's word: 

For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons,[b] neither the present nor the future,nor any powers, 39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Romans 8 : 38 - 39

God loves you unconditionally! He loves you no matter what your past has been. He loves you not matter what situation you are going through. Nothing, not your guilt, not your shame, not your loss, not your hurt, not your pain, not your doubt, can ever separate you from the love of God.

So what are you allowing to determine how you live? The lies of this world? Or the truth from the Word of God? How about others around you? Can you make a difference in their lives by providing them with a Bible so that they may also read and learn about the truth of who they are through God's love?

If you want a Bible for yourself or to give away, contact us: 204-339-3770 or emails us at ro leaves us a comment on facebook

We would love to get a copy of this book of love so you can read for yourself about the Love of God!
