Prayer, presentation and the best Fiesta ever!

It’s official…I’m leaving for Mexico in the beginning of July!

Thank you for all your prayers, support and encouragement during this time of preparation. So, this is what’s been happening…

PRAYER, PRESENTATION AND THE BEST FIESTA EVER!

Prayer and Commissioning into the mission field, Voyagers Bible Church, my home church. 

Sunday May 31st, at the beginning of both services I joined my Pastor and the Global Outreach Team in the front of church for prayer and a bit of sharing about the Lord’s leading in my life to serve Him in the field full-time.

Thank you church family for making this such an amazing morning! Your prayers, love and support will continue to encourage me to step boldly in His pathway as I serve our Lord.

No matter where the Lord sends me, Voyagers will always be my home place.

As I travel over the border into Mexico I go with excitement and confidence knowing that you, my amazing support team, are right alongside me!

PRESENTATION & FIESTA lunch after church.                                                              

 

It was great to share time with friends and family able to attend the Fiesta after church. During this time I presented a slide show with photos and information detailing the who, what, where and why, how…and when this new adventure is going to officially start. Followed up by more personal prayer time. And, as I’ve learned, like every good Fiesta we celebrated with a piñata. It  was such a great time! I think I was walking on air for the following week remembering the great time.

WHAT NOW???

Moving time has finally come!

For the month of July I will be renting a friend’s house in Rosarito for a couple weeks hoping to get acquainted with the neighborhood and searching for a long term rental property.

This area of Rosarito I will be staying in has been recommended as a safe as well as convenient place to live. I’ve learned that several people from my new church in Rosarito live in this area.  Most importantly, Pastor Mike Vincent, and his family ( Voyager’s Global Partners)  as well as the Pesina’s (the Pastor, his wife and son from the church that I will be serving with in Vista Del Valle, Tijuana) are in this area too.

July 17-19th a team of families and friends are coming down on a short mission weekend trip. I will be showing the Voyager’s Team around the area that I will be serving in Tijuana as well as helping out at the church in Vista Del Valle.

PRAYER REQUESTS  Please stand with me in prayer to our Father regarding;

Housing- the search of finding the right place during the busy summer season, the location, the communication and arranging  of rental agreement along with set up of water, electricity, gas, internet etc.

The Move-packing up and transport of my stuff to set up a home in this new environment. People to help me transport items to Rosarito.

Getting Acquainted– Getting to know neighbors, being His representative to all that I come into contact. Communicating in my limited Spanish. Starting to attend my Mexico home church, Rosarito Calvary. Getting involved in the Woman’s Bible Study to build friendships with other local woman. And, the process of starting to serve at Gracia del Calvario in Vista Del Valle.

It is with great appreciation that I get to be a part of this amazing adventure.  Thank you all for making it possible through your prayers, financial support and encouragement.  I go representing Him and you as we co-labor for His Kingdom of truth, righteousness and peace.

By the way…I love getting your emails! Keep them coming!NancyandKishon@gmail.com

Also, if you haven’t already please like me on Facebook. It is a great way to stay in touch.

Te amo mis amigos! ( I love you my friends!)

Happy Spring!

 Our old history ends with the cross; our new history begins with the resurrection. ~ Watchman Nee, Christian Author & Church Leader

I pray that you and your family are enjoying a wonderful spring time!

Thank you for your prayers, encouragement and support as I prepare to  go and serve in Vista Del Valle, Tijuana.
It has been so exciting to see my financial support team develop knowing that as it grows my move date gets closer and closer.
The Lord has continued to use this time as a time to build my trust in Him and His plans.
While I wait on His timing I continue to prepare;
  • I’ve taken a couple classes ; social media and your ministry and story telling through photos and videos.
  • In May I’ll be going to a conference focused on children’s ministry training preparing me to lead the children’s ministry at Gracio del Calvario in the future.
  • Language learning continues to be an effort and a challenge but, I’ve seemed to master the art of ordering Mexican food.
  • Taking every opportunity to speak at small groups and bible studies about my ministry.  Started to plan a trip for a team from my church to serve in Tijuana in the beginning of the summer.
  • And….Since it is just a drive away, I’ve been down to visit the church and ministries I’ll be serving with in the future.

I’ve learned that Spring Break = Short Term Mission Teams

The last week of March I joined Cindy and Pastor Jose Luis to help with the variety of teams wanting to serve their church in Vista Del Valle and a nearby Children’s home in La Gloria.  During my time Cindy showed me how to represent the local ministry while aiding teams as they serve.

During the break the church in Vista Del Valle was blessed with a team that built the 2nd story on the church and another that provided 3 days vacation bible school  while the Children’s home had 2 teams brighten up the place with an Easter celebration, Bible teachings, Music, Games, Crafts, Sports, Haircuts, Prayer and Repair to the building and iron gate.

Everyone had a great time…laughter filled the air and the kids beamed with smiles ear to ear.

As the programs went on, friendships were formed and lives were changed it became evident to me…No matter all the planning that went on to organize the teams, God created these teams. He filled them with people that each had unique gifts and abilities that He especially wanted to be there.    I was encouraged and inspired to hear their stories about how the Lord had been teaching them and as they served.

What honor to be part of the Lord’s ministry and see how He changes lives!

Blessings!
