New Missions Project for Mexico! 1.5 Million Tracts Requested by Missionary Joe Hendrigsman

Missionary Joe & Amy Hendrigsman

Joe and Amy Hendrigsman are in their 8th year as church planting missionaries to Oaxaca, México. God has allowed them to plant Grace Baptist Church in the town of Santa Maria Huatulco and start two mission churches in neighboring towns.

God has also helped them start a Christian school to help teach and disciple the kids from their church and community. Utilizing Amy’s nursing skills, Joe and Amy hold several medical brigades each year to open doors to the gospel and assist in starting new works and strengthening young churches. Through these brigades and many other short term mission teams, they have been able to evangelize many villages in the mountain regions of Southern Oaxaca.

Late last year, we sent Joe Hendrigsman 1.5 million tracts for his ministry work in Oaxaca Mexico. He was thrilled to receive the tracts in 2023 and they have been used in many outreaches, medical brigades, daily soul-winning and new church plants.

When the tracts arrived, Hendrigsman described what happened:

"On the day the trailer arrived with our tracts, about 30 different ministries were waiting to help us unload. The pastors were shouting with joy as we opened the trailer doors. They have gone to the neighboring states of Chiapas, Vera Cruz, and Puebla."

"Some have gone to Guatemala and Central America. We personally have held 2 medical brigades and used the tracts to evangelize. We saw over 500 people saved between the two brigades. Our church has also passed out over 5,000 tracts in the last few weeks.”

Later, he followed up with this report:

"God is working in Mexico! We are seeing soul-winning campaigns and evangelistic outreaches like never before. At our Bible distribution center, we receive calls almost everyday requesting material for evangelism. The amazing thing that is happening now, is the influx of immigrants passing through Southern Mexico. Thousands are passing through every week. We have a tremendous opportunity to reach them with the gospel! We can reach the Hispanic World right here in Oaxaca, Mexico. Please join us in prayer for this great need and wonderful opportunity to see God's Word go forth!"

Joe & Amy have requested 1.5 million Chick tracts for 2024 as there is a great need still for the gospel in Mexico and Central America. These tracts will be used in various projects:

  • 7 soul-winner training conferences in the state of Tabasco.
  • A mass evangelization project to cover the whole state of Puebla.
  • A new church plant in Bahias de Huatulco.
  • Mass evangelism in the jungle region of Chiapas and many other evangelistic outreaches throughout Oaxaca and Southern Mexico.

Brothers and Sisters, we have a great opportunity here! Hendrigsman is requesting 1.5 million Chick tracts and the quantities are so large that production savings will drive the cost down to 7 cents per tract! In addition to those savings, Grace Transport will ship them FREE to Oaxaca, more than 1,600 miles south into Mexico. This is a great opportunity for us all to make our missions dollars stretch!

The total cost of this project is expected to be around $104,000. Will you help?

Missionaries contact us every week asking for Chick tracts to be the “attention-getter” for their evangelism. We never know where the requests will come from and are so grateful to those who give so that we can keep saying “yes” to missionaries' requests.

Although we are not legally structured to give tax-deductible receipts, we definitely know how to get literature into missionaries' hands. If you would like to help extend the reach of a missionary with Chick tracts, you can donate today with a credit or debit card on our website:
