Product description Dorothy Meyerink entered her ministry among the Maya of Chiapas, Mexico, in 1956, and spent her entire service there. Ministry among the Maya is an exciting account of persecution and success, relating the story of how, through the faithful witness of the laity and the early ordination of Mayan ministers, a strong, large, indigenous church was established and continues to flourish. Meyerink interweaves her personal experiences and the history of the church with reflections on the effective application of church growth principles. Review I. John Hesselink -- President and professor of theology, emeritus, Western Theological Seminary, Holland, Michigan "Carefully researched and beautifully written, this fascinating study of a remote part of Mexico is a valuable addition to the Reformed Church in America Historical Series. Dorothy Meyerink writes perceptively and lovingly of her thirty-eight years of Christian service and witness in a state where the number of evangelical Christians now outnumbers the total membership of the Reformed Church in America. This is also an impressive account of an eighty-five year partnership between the Reformed Church in America and the National Presbyterian Church in Mexico - a thrilling story of evangelism and church growth in one of the most challenging places in Latin America." Roger De Young -- Reformed Church in America Mission Supervisor for Chiapas, 1992-2006 "True to her intent, Dorothy Meyerink has painted a colorful and detailed picture of the people and places of Chiapas, Mexico. Her history of the RCA in the Presbyterian Church's amazing growth in this land of the Maya is a story of miracles and sound mission principles." Phyllis Palsma -- Coordinator for Revitalization, Albany Synod, Reformed Church in America " 'Every believer a missionary' is at the heart of this story. The power of personal witness and vigor for gospel living comes through as Meyerink captures both the pain and passion of a growing church in an unfriendly culture. Readers of this book will discover the profound impact of lay leaders who know their gifts and are empowered to use them." Richard Vander Voet (retired) -- World Mission Division, Reformed Church in America "Here is an exciting story of the Holy Spirit growing a church of a million people in less than ninety years. It parallels the first century church's record found in the New Testament book of Acts. Thank you Dorothy Dickens Meyerink for telling this story." Dennis N. Voskuil -- President emeritus, professor of church history Western Theological Seminary, Holland, Michigan "I have eagerly anticipated the comprehensive study of the denomination's ministry in Chiapas. Dorothy Meyerink does not disappoint. Drawing upon first-hand experiences she provides a compelling overview of a mission to the Maya of Chiapas. This book deserves its place beside other fine studies of RCA global mission fields in India, Africa, Arabia, and China." Calvin Theological Journal ?A beautiful, in-depth narrative told by a participant. . . . A rich resource of inspiring stories and mission principles that can be used in a variety of ways. . . . Recommended for academic studies, church libraries, and personal reading.? About the Author Dorothy Dickens Meyerink served with her husband, Paul, for thirty-eight years as a missionary of the Reformed Church in America among the Tzeltal Maya in Chiapas, Mexico. Responsibilities included everything from midwifery to writing and producing litera
