A large part of the ministry of Maranatha Life has always included teaching via writing. God has led Rich and Deborah to write a number of books, and they are constantly writing new teachings and books to minister to the Body of Christ.
As an ongoing part of their missions work, Rich and Deborah have written several books in Spanish, and are in the process of translating others into Spanish.
They also write Biblical studies on a number of subjects for the Hispanic pastors on both sides of the border. Every month, these studies go out to over 450 pastors, who are both fed themselves, and can use that material to minister to others. These studies have been very well received in the three different pastor's groups that Rich regularly attends.
Rich & Deborah also send these teachings, their books, and tapes to pastors in other areas where they cannot personally travel to minister. They have sent material to other parts of Mexico where they have not yet ministered, Cuba, South America, and India. Usually, these materials are sent with native ministers that are going to minister in these areas. At times, they also send materials through the mail, although this is less reliable.
If you know a native minister or foreign missionary who could use any of their teachings, please contact us. As funds are available, they will gladly send whatever materials they can.
In order to help the pastors of Reynosa, we have also started a Christian lending library in one of the Bible institutes. This allows us to make a broad range of Christian materials available to a number of pastors much cheaper than buying the books for each and every pastor.
