Pastor Juan Felipe and his wife Elena Felipe are Missionaries to Hispanic families in West Central Minnesota. The Felipe’s meet at Cristo Viene in Park Rapids on Saturdays for church service and on Sundays at Cristo La Roca in Pelican Rapids, MN. Juan travels through small towns across the region, looking to evangelize to new Hispanic families in the area and to those he has not reached out to before. Part of the work includes helping those in immediate need, visiting those incarcerated or hospitalized, and making sure the children learn about the Lord as well.
Our vision is to reach as many people as we can to teach them the word of God, to create disciples, and continue our growth.
John 15; 1-8 I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener. He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit he prunes[a] so that it will be even more fruitful. You are already clean because of the word I have spoken to you. Remain in me, as I also remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me.
“I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. If you do not remain in me, you are like a branch that is thrown away and withers; such branches are picked up, thrown into the fire and burned. If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. This is to my Father’s glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples.
