Divorce Rate in San Juan del Rio Up 15% Annually

http://www.oem.com.mx/elsoldesanjuandelrio/notas/n1644585.htm (article in Spanish)

Not that the total number is all that high but an official divorce is rare in Mexico.  No doubt the official divorce rate mirrors the marital/couple problems of the city.  Apparently, it’s expensive and difficult to get a divorce here.  Most people never marry or never re-marry after separated and just live with the 2nd partner in a common-law type marriage (except since they’re not divorced a common-law marriage would not even apply).

I have to wonder if we couldn’t use a Christian, Spanish-speaking marriage counselor here at the community center.  In fact, with several churches/missionaries starting community centers in the area (two in Queretaro and one here in San Juan del Rio), it would seem such a counselor could have an impact in at least two cities with a total of well over 2 million people.  Surely, this could be used to not only heal broken marriages and lives but to bring broken hearts to Christ.

Anyone fit the job description and sense the Lord’s call to this kind of ministry in Mexico?  Let us know!
