Question
QUESTION: In a google search, I saw that you had asked about any churches in the Lake Chapala, Mexico area.  Did you fine any, or find a place where you could get more information.  I can ill you in with more details later, but for now was wondering if you had found out anything.  Thanks for your help.
In Christ,
Richard Rogers


ANSWER: Brother Richard, I am a shut-in. I would more likely help people find congregations than need to find one. I have done a few, but I do not remember Lake Chapala; unless it goes by a regional name, too.

However, I do thank you for your concern and willingness to help members of the church.

QUESTION: Marvin,  Thanks for the help.  I think the article I saw was dated around 2004, but I thought I would try anyways.  I have been preaching for 40+ years and will be turning 65 this year.  My wife and I have been exploring possible places that we could move to where we could afford it on our limited income and also be of benefit to the church.  We have not settled on a place yet, but this was one of our options.  If there is no church in the immediate area, then it would be a good time to work at establishing one.  We have been involved in mission work so this may be a possibility.  Again, thanks for the help
Richard Rogers


Answer
Brother Richard, from your fist question, I believed you thought I needed a congregation in Lake Chapala. I think I remember that request. If I remember right, that is the province of Jalisco? Now I see it was you who needed the information. As will all of these I do, it will be up to you to determine how sound these are. Here is what I could find.

Also, much of the contact information expires quickly. I cannot tell you which addresses are correct, or which phone numbers are still active.

I do not know all of the things that are pointing you towards Mexico. But, I can tell you another option. I am personally looking at expatriating to the Philippines to make the most of my Social Security. The cost of living there is so low, a person in similar circumstances to what I face is living on $250 per month. Also, English is the second official language; most people speak it. I am trying to arrange my finances as quickly as possible to that end.

I wish you well in your search for the best way to serve the kingdom.

Expertise

I consider myself to be a "doctrine specialist" if there is such a thing. I offer scripture to support or refute (as needed) any doctrine practiced within what is commonly termed "Christianity" today. I am willing to try questions on prophecy and history, though they are weak points. I have learned a little, however. Also, as I am disabled, I have time to research many things. For example, I can find a congregation of the church within twenty miles of your ZIP Code if one exists. If traveling, I can locate a congregation for your visit. I am accountable in this ministry to a group of Christians. I will share my answers with them for review. If a question is private, I will redact the names for privacy.

Experience

I became a Christian on April 7, 1969. I have been a substitute, spur-of-the-moment preacher for thirty years. My last pulpit was with the congregation in Braswell, GA. My sermons have always contained at least fifty percent scripture. On occasion, I have preached in seven states, and four foreign nations. This is beside my online ministry. I am now, officially retired.

I hope to never mislead anyone saying I'm a member of one group, when I'm really in another as one here does. By his own admission, he isn't a member of the church, but of the "Christian Church" (sic) denomination. If I can be honest, I don't know why others would want to lie.

Education/Credentials
Having already acquired significant Bible education from self-study, I attended 1.5 years of Bible college through the church at Dyersburg, TN (before my health waned) in an attempt to get paper to say I know what I know.
