Joel and Amber Cera along with their children: Ian, Eli and Lia have served as full time missionaries in Juarez for 7 years. Joel and Amber met while Amber was on a mission trip to Joel's home town (Cuauhtemoc, Mexico) in the summer of 2006.  At the time, Joel was studying at New Tribes Bible Institute in Chihuahua and Amber was in college studying education. Soon after graduation they got married (2009) and started their ministry together.  God brought them to Juarez with a ministry from Canada (Christlike Ministries). It's Joel's and Amber's desire to reach the lost in their neighborhood. Aside from the huge physical needs in their neighborhood (no running water, poverty, etc.) there is also a great spiritual need.  Joel and Amber are working hard to show love and be a light in any way possible to the people of their community all the while teaching them to grow and mature in their walks with Christ. Their weekly ministry includes Sunday and midweek church services, youth group, kids club, bible studies, prison ministry, and so much more. They appreciate your prayers as God uses them for HIS glory!
