The Herrins to Move to Mexico

Missionaries Jon and Jeannie Herrin have just announced that they will be moving their family to Mexico where Jon will be teaching at the Juan Wesley Seminary. We wish them the very best and thank them for their work in Venezuela for the last three years. They made a great commitment to be the first United Methodist Missionaries to go to Venezuela and live there. For that we are forever grateful.

We will continue the work in Venezuela, especially with the Seminario Wesleyano de Venezuela, the Institute of Church Planting, the United Methodist Church of Venezuela and the other projects currently in process. Samuel Rojas, our Venezuelan ministry assistant is well known to many US Churches and will continue to work with Mission Teams who travel to Venezuela. David and Carol Cosby, career missionaries, will also continue to serve in Venezuela overseeing all our work there.

We hope to close very soon on the purchase of the site to house the Seminary. As soon as that is done, we will make an appeal for Mission Teams to come and work with construction projects at the seminary. We are also working on being able to provide more affordable housing for mission teams which will make recruiting easier for the churches in the US.

Please keep the Herrins in your prayers as they move on to Mexico in May. Also, please pray for God's continued blessing on the work in Venezuela.
