American Border Ministries

Ranulfo & Phyllis Garza
Box 318
Fowler, Kansas

The Garza’s have ministered to the Mexican people for many years from their home on the border of Mexico in Eagle Pass, Texas. A few years ago, they accepted a call to minister to the large Mexican community in Fowler, Kansas.  Fowler is 888 miles from DCCC and 669 miles from their home in Texas. Below is an excerpt from a recent newsletter.

“We greet you in the name of His Majesty,KING JESUS!. What a joy to be alive and healthy and able to enjoy this beautiful Kansas spring weather! What a privilege to serve the Lord Jesus in this community! Sometimes i think i will end up in an institution thinking and worrying about the Mexicans in this community and their need to know Jesus as Savior and Lord of their lives. I have acknowledged that i am not their savior. None of us can save them. We can only show them who the Savior is. He and only He can save them. We have tried to show them the love of the Lord Jesus Christ. We have been in their homes and eaten at their tables. We have also attended their birthday parties, weddings and baby showers. We are waiting for the Lord to do the work in their hearts.

On the first Sunday of April, after three months of getting the soil ready to sow, we started services in Spanish. On the first Sunday five Mexicans came and on the other two Sundays three came. The Carys and several of the English-speaking church members have been a big encouragement by attending these services and making the Mexicans feel welcome. In the first service all five that attended confessed Jesus as Lord and Savior. They need to understand so many things yet about the new birth. Please pray to the Lord of the harvest to provide the growth of the Good Seed that has been planted in their hearts. May it germinate and bear fruit.”
