December is a beautiful time in Vallarta. The weather cools off and the tropical humidity drops. December is also a very busy month for AMG. In December 2020 we had a leadership meeting, dinner donations, and we also had donations of groceries, clothing, games, soaps, and even watermelons! Of course the month caps off with our annual Christmas celebration (including a live nativity scene). As we wrap up this challenging year of 2020 we thank each and every one of you for your donations and support!
Even with the Covid-19 pandemic in the background, we are keeping very busy through it all! In addition to keeping our Saturday afternoon service schedule, we are hosting Bible Studies, a Children's Ministry, and celebrating graduations. As always, we thank everyone for their support!
Tennis Shoes for the children
From the thoughtful donations we received we were able to distribute tennis shoes to the children of Progreso. For some of these kids, it was the first pair of new shoes they have ever owned!
Back to worship - September 5, 2020
With God's blessing we were able to resume our Saturday service in the village of Progreso on 9/5/2020! Masks and social-distancing were in place, and we were pleased to be greeted with a great crowd. We look forward to slowly opening things up slowly as we head towards the end of the year, however just the act of worshiping together again is both amazing and humbling. Thanks be to God!
Students Promotion / Supply Distribution 2020
At AGM we love helping the schoolchildren! We were there when many of the children of Progreso were awarded certificates showing completion of one stage of their education, and allowing them to move on to the next level. We also had fun handing out back packs and school supplies as well. We are so proud of these kids, and we will always support them. The sky's the limit for these amazing students!
Giving during times of pandemic
The Covid-19 pandemic has placed the world in crisis. The villages of Puerto Vallarta have not been immune to this crisis, and the families of Progreso are suffering with illness, job loss, and depression. Amazing Grace Missions has been very active in helping these strong men, women, and children. We are pleased to have helped some of the families pay their rent and utility bills. We have also assisted by delivering food, personal care items, sheets, soaps, diapers, and even a mattress! We continue our weekly delivery of groceries, and look forward to resuming our Saturday afternoon services very soon. Amazing Grace Missions and the families of Progreso thank you for your support, and pray that you stay healthy and safe!
It has been a busy Winter Season at Amazing Grace Missions. We celebrated Valentines Day with our local children, held English classes for the youth, and delivered backpacks to students in need of them. In addition, the Rotary Club of Parker, Arizona came down to Puerto Vallarta to deliver water filtration systems to the residents of Progreso. All are welcome to join us in our activities that are in progress year-round!

Wedding Before God
On November 9, 2019 we were honored to perform the wedding ceremony between Corina and Luciano. We wish them a bright and happy future!
Children receiving backpacks, school supplies, & Assistance
Each year we distribute backpacks and school supplies to the schoolchildren of Progreso. This is one of the most fun and satisfying programs we do throughout the year, and we thank everyone that assisted or donated to this cause! In addition, our mission is helping the parents of 33 students with assistance in paying school registration costs and other school expenses.
Graduation Day 2019
Once a year we celebrate all the children that complete the school year successfully. Each student is recognized individually, and also asked their ambition in life (to be a teacher or veterinarian, etc.) It is a big motivation for the kids!
Palm Sunday 2019
Palm Sunday 2019 was enjoyed by everyone in attendance! This year we had a tremendous turnout, and the children had a wonderful time. Palm Sunday is increasingly becoming an annual service that should not be missed!
