I grew up in a Christian home. At the age of 4 years old I knelt beside my dad ́s bed and he led me to Christ. As a child most my memories revolved the church. My family was very active in our local church. One of my favorite times of the year was our annual Missions Conference. In March of 2002, at the age of 12 years old, while attending our Missions Conference I surrendered my life to serve God as a missionary. I had no idea at that time where God would lead me, all I knew was that He had called me to missions.

While attended Bible college, I was around many Hispanics. Through having friends who were Hispanic, and many bus kids who were Hispanic as well, God began to place a burden on my heart for the Spanish people.

In the spring of 2009 I had the opportunity to take my first missions trip with a group from my bible college. We spent a few days in Honduras, and the rest of our trip was spent with a group of missionaries in the country of Belize. While in Belize I had the chance to go soulwinning, help in the children ́s ministry, as well help the men of the church construct a new auditorium for the church.

Since June of 2017 I ́ve had the privilege to be a part of the Spanish department of the First Baptist Church of Hammond, Indiana. While attended there I ́ve been able to sing in the choir, as well as sing as a soloist. I ́ve worked in the children ́s church, teen department, bus ministry, etc. All while being able to learn and improve my Spanish.

In the fall of 2019 I went to Mexico for the first time. I spent a month there traveling some 1,200 miles throughout the country, visiting different churches. One of the churches that I visited during this trip was the Iglesia Buatista Liberted ( Liberty Baptist Church ) in Teotihuacan, Mexico. The pastor there is Pastor Adolfo Lima. God really touched my heart while there, and I believe that He would have me to return to this church and to serve along side this pastor for the time being.

Thank you so much for your considered partnership in the call of God upon my life. I prayer that together we can further the gospel in your community, and around the world.

Adam and Karin DePaolis Prayer Letter: Church Plant

Adam and Karin DePaolis Prayer Letter: Church PlantI am writing in order to give a quick update about what has been happening with our family of late. We would personally like to thank First Baptist Church of Hammond, Indiana, and the Sylvania Hills Baptist Church of Rochester, Pennsylvania, for their kindness and generosity towards us during our recent visit to the States. We were beyond blessed and encouraged during our time with them. As many of you know, my wife and daughter have finally gotten their paperwork situated in order for us to travel together. We are making plans now to return for a brief furlough in the spring of 2024.

We are now back in Mexico, and we have continued to stay busy. Last weekend, we celebrated the Bible institute graduation. There were three young people who graduated this year. Please pray that these young people, as well as the rest of the student body, would stay strong and continue on the path which God has placed them. In the next few weeks, we will be having the graduation for our Christian school as well.

I would like to inform you all, being my faithful supporters, of a change in ministry that we will be making in the month of July. For the last two years, we have been working with Pastor Adolfo Lima and the Iglesia Bautista Libertad (Liberty Baptist Church). We will be continuing to use this church as our home base, but we will, however, be taking over a church plant in a nearby town about 30 minutes away. About one year ago, a group of young people from the Bible institute started visiting this town and holding Bible studies. There is now on average 6-8 persons who meet every Tuesday night for a church service. This past Tuesday, we had a high attendance of 13 adults and 6 kids. We will be taking over this church plant; and, Lord willing, He will help us to raise up a church from what these young people have accomplished thus far. Please pray for this new venture.

I pray that God will continue to bless and guide your church, just as He has been blessing us, as you continue to reach your part of the world.
