In February in Minatitlan Mexico, HeartSprings had the privilege to install a Safe Water System on a military base located there.   HeartSprings worked with Pastor Cesar who has a church in Minatitlan and Brontis, a HeartSprings local director.   The military facility has approximately 2500 soldiers and staff who live and work there plus there is an elementary school located on the base.   HeartSprings was invited by the General who is very open to the gospel.   He apologized that he could not make all the troops available for the dedication ceremony and the sharing of the word.  He explained because of the soldiers ongoing responsibilities that our team would need to minister them in small groups.  Everyone was so grateful for the gift of clean water.   They expressed their thanks many times.  Even more than the clean water they were so moved by the ‘living word’ that was proclaimed by both Pastors Sergio and Cesar.   Pastor Cesar brought some bibles and everyone wanted one.  Pastor Cesar said he would bring more next week, enough for each soldier to have a bible.   

Sergio observed during the time of ministry that many of the soldiers were trying hard not to show their emotion because to them as soldiers they must portray a tough exterior and tears display weakness.   The power of the Holy Spirit was shared and many received, opening their hearts to Jesus and the indwelling of the Holy Spirit.  Many of the soldiers asked for the address of Pastor Cesar’s church in Minatitlan and it is our prayer they will attend either there or another bible believing, spirit filled church in the local community.  

The water tank for the military facility was located high on top of a tower.  As you can see from the picture, it was a challenge to climb to the top of the tower to complete the installation of the Safe Water System.  Fortunately, the Safe Water System itself will be housed in the bottom of the tower in a small protected enclosure.  

The General stated to our team that he could open all the military bases in Mexico to HeartSprings and it was his desire that we bless these many other facilities as we had blessed his.
