After meeting at Tennessee Temple University, Alvin and Sharon Weiss were married in 1974, then began serving the Lord in Mexico in 1978. They have four children. Amy is a registered nurse whose husband is a seminary student. Their son Andrew is also married and studying for the ministry. Daughters Alicia and Rachel are students at Bob Jones University.
Alvin and Sharon only had their older two children when they arrived in Cuernavaca, Mexico in 1978. They began first working to build up a small national church and encouraged that church to start missions. One of the missions, started in 1981, developed into a church and officially organized in 1986. At that time the Weiss’ gave the first church to the keeping of a national pastor and went to help build up the new church. The newer church was also given a burden for outreach and currently has four missions, also supporting other national missionaries. In 1997, the church added a Christian school to its ministries . Presently 200 students are enrolled in Kindergarten through 9th grade and Sharon teaches K-5.
