Mission Location: Oaxaca City, Mexico
Mission Organization: To Every Tribe Ministries
Family on the Field: Elias, Josue, Lucas, Omar Jr.
Our Missionaries: The Sotos came to the U.S. from Mexico City 9 years ago looking for the American dream and settled in Fort Wayne, Indiana with family. After coming to faith in Christ, Omar & Norma became part of Christ’s Covenant Church. God, in His mercy, saved them and changed their desires. They felt a deep conviction to go back to their country of Mexico to share the Gospel with their people. In preparation for this, the Sotos received training at MITC (Mexican Indian Training Center) in Cordoba, Veracruz, Mexico. They are now serving as missionary interns with To Every Tribe Ministries in Oaxaca City, Mexico.
Their Mission: The Sotos have joined up with To Every Tribe ministries and are currently serving as missionary interns in Oaxaca City, helping TET to establish a missionary base there. Omar is studying through the Old Testament at a Baptist seminary in town, and also through Wayne Grudem’s Systematic Theology with TET Mexico field director A.J. Gibson. Omar and other teammates make regular trips to mountain villages to offer medical help, to encourage believers, and to share Christ with those who don’t know Him.
How to be Involved
PRAY: Pray for Omar & Norma as they seek to build relationships with those in the community. Pray for the Lord’s grace & favor for Omar as he continues his studies and training and for Norma as she home schools their boys, Elias, Josue, and Lucas. Pray for boldness to proclaim Christ to those who cross their path and for more opportunities to travel to mountain villages with the hope of the gospel.
