San Juan del Rio Is Growing Fast

The economy doesn’t appear to be very good, but our small city is still growing.  I just read an article today in our local online paper that the government is funding the construction of 5,000 new small houses.  Another government project will fund an additional 1,200 houses.  The total deficit of needed houses is estimated at 8,000.  That probably would mean between 20,000-30,000 people for that many homes.  Wow.

It appears that all of this new construction is over on the side of town where the fledgling community center is located.  It is about 4 miles across town from our home to the community center.  This construction will be added to housing construction we’ve observed over the past couple years.  Can you imagine adding 25,000 people to a one-mile stretch that you drive routinely?  I can’t either, but it appears we’ll find out soon enough!  
Unfortunately, we don’t have many workers here in San Juan del Rio to develop more outreach and ministry.  Pray to the Lord of the harvest with us…the fields are white and the laborers are few; Jesus said “GO!” and very few ever get moving.
