NTNLMA (North Texas North Louisiana Mission Assembly)
Pastor Pedro Portillo serves the Assembly through ministry. The incredibly uplifting service enabled the Assembly to go out into the world and preach the Good News of Jesus Christ through what Pastor Pedro calls DiscipuladoVida (DiscipleLife). Pastor Portillo's congregation, Iglesia Luterana Santa Maria de Guadalupe, Irving, is one of the, if not the, fastest growing congregations in the NTNL Mission Area. His services regularly contain 800+ attendees. Congratulations to Iglesia Luterana Santa Maria de Guadalupe on their spreading the Good News.
The Tarrant Area Food Bank afforded Disciples the opportunity to serve the hungry. The Food Bank distributed more than 26 million pounds of food last year. The Back Packs for Kids program ensures that young persons below the poverty level will not go hungry. The Food Bank maintains education programs, caters when called upon, and distributes to as far as Palo Pinto county to the West and the City of Gainsville to the North as well as other rural communites such as Glen Rose and Granbury. The Assembly volunteers assisted the Food Bank in packaging perishables for distribution as well as a lot of macaroni for this outstanding service to these communities.
