Obed Garcia Pineda & Zury
Obed Garcia Pineda & Zury – Guerrero, Mexico Sub-coordinator
In October, 2017, Miguel & Olivia accompanied Pr. Jaime & David from Mision Jireh in San Luis, Sonora, to visit with Pr. Obed, his family and other local pastors in Michoacan.
Pastor Obed lived in Apatzingan with his wife, Zury, and daughters, Genesis and Sinai.
After a subsequent visit from Miguel & Olivia in 2018, they agreed to serve as coordinators for Harvest Vision Ministries.
He pastored a church family that met in their home and worked construction. Apatzingan has a population of 100,000 and the city is strongly influenced by the drug trade with much alcoholism, drug addiction, prostitution and the other problems that have left many with little or no hope.
Prior to becoming a pastor, Obed was a worship leader.
His desire is to reach the lost and he worked with other local pastors to minister in their community, helped with pastor’s and leader’s training, helped start new church families and strengthened existing church families
Always with the goal of teaching new believers to become true disciples.
A sound and video system are available to Obed who is responsible for coordinating its use for the Christian leaders in the community in spreading the gospel.
In 2020, Obed and Zury were called to cross the border to the state of Guerrero and live in the small community of Guayameo.
Although they still have ties to the leaders and believers in Michoacan, their primary ministry is to the people that live in the surrounding mountains, many of whom are unable to read.
Miguel and OIivia will help over-see this work.
