In working in South East Asia as and American Christian Missionary, and furthermore, plainly stating on my Visa Application to their country my purpose, for entering this absolutely, totally Buddhist country, was to share the “Gospel of Jesus Christ.”   

This Country’s corruptions was off the charts, in comparison to Mexico’s corruption, Mexico would be very “TAME.”

The narco traffic was the big problem -Heroin production from this border area referred to as the ‘”Golden Triangle.”

This was an area that I was in. The heroin production was for money, to these hill tribe people who were very poor, compared to the lowlanders.

The problems was “money!” for a steady income?

I was able to map out the areas, and then have ground samples taken. Through this mapped area, I was aware of an government program, for the introduction of 30,000 thirty thousand coffee trees. The government had a free program, that was working in unison with the UN.

   Buying and Selling 

Then to my dismay, when they found out that and American Missionary was the behind all of this preparations, they wanted to charge one dollar per tree.

Needless to say, I didn’t have 30,000 thousand dollars. I was left bewildered, not understanding what the “Lord  Was Doing By Having Me To put This Time and Effort Into This Project?”

On one of my subsequent returns to this country, low and behold there were coffee tree’s planted all of this mountainous areas!  The government had move forward on this program and…

It was “beauty to behold,” as these young trees, now being nurtured and cared for, by the very people who were had been cultivating the opium “Poppy.”

These types of programs help the locals to gain a steady income.

Mexico’s export from this border area was 160 BILLION dollars for 2008!

However, the problem here lays in the totally lack of manufacturing of the parts that they are in fact assembling.

A good part of Mexico’s problems can be solved with a “Manufacturing Infrastructure Programs.”

Mexico, working with their “GLOBAL” partner’s here, have helped it’s people by arranging a government housing program available to all, also they have through their international companies here, to help with private bus transportation to work, and also these companies have their own hospitals, to care for their employees. This along hot meals at their work place cafeterias’. The government here, has an active training programs available to all, for job training in  their selected fields.

The current initiatives to Mexico (700 million in tech support type equipment) I feel, is in part miss applied.

Manufacturing infrastructures, is the key for stability, in my opinion, and the opportunity for more people to work, thus off setting the daring attempts at smuggling drugs.

The continuing “Border Wall” is necessary for the safety of the people of Reynosa, and those south of the Wall. The Wall in fact, will deter the smugglers to move out of this area, and to find easier access in running their dope operations.

A Reply In Regards To “Works By Christians.”

I have been busy…in regards too your comments,… I would say “no,” I don’t think that was their motivation. As you know their are many groups going and building houses, and doing repairs, for the poor and needed. This is a denominational national program that the M——–do here, as well as in many other places.

I know the regional director who is the liaison for Mexico, and is the coordinator, for the folks coming into Mexico, this also includes, the medical and dental teams, as well as others.

I guess I wasn’t  to clear in my earlier post. The point I was trying to make, that in all of the works that go on, Christ’s message of “Salvation,”

is placed on a back burner of sorts.

American Christians as well as the public tax dollar, by all of us, have helped millions and will continue to do so.

Christianity, I’m afraid, has tipped the scale in favor of works, as being the evidence of being a Christian. Yes, when one is born again, he or she does demonstrate works, however, those works cannot be a substitute for being a born a new by the Spirit of God. 

Or those works, however good they are, are only those of a religious person, as his or her duty.

Again, most of the churches here have adopted an attitude, that the only way they can succeed is by “America” giving them what they need.

Where God -in their mind, and, the answer to all their problems and prayers,- is money from America.

This is a misnomer.

The Bible and it’s teachings are clear about asking God for help. On the contrary, and I must repeat, to the contrary, of many Christian believers, God doesn’t answer sometimes in the way that we would like.

Sufferings, pains, deaths, hunger, abuse is part of being a Christian also. When a love one, is dying before your eyes, in a ravaged, cancer eaten shell of an existence. God is still to be praised! from the highest mountain! When a child turns from the goodness of the Lord. God is still to be praised! In all things to praise the Lord! When all turn away, and hear not, the words of the greatest man that ever walked “Jesus!” yet, God, is to be praised!

Mexico’s problems are of Mexican origin, and they, the problems, if they are ever to be resolved, will be, by the Mexican people. Not by an endless stream of money.
