Vincent Family October 2021

Greetings from Mexico,

The work of a missionary is and always has been a team effort! God sent our family down to Mexico in 2002, and He called you, our precious ministry partners, to join us in this great work. But there is another key component of this work and it is our missions sending organization! In this update I wanted to tell you about the great work Saving Grace World Missions (SGWM) does (and has done for over 19 years) to keep us on the mission field.

Saving Grace World Missions is the missions organization started by our sending church, Calvary Chapel Saving Grace, in the 1990’s! We were among the first missionaries sent out by this group that is designed to support and partner with international missionaries.  

5 Generations of Church Planting! CCSaving Grace planted CCRosarito, planted CCCuliacan, planted CCCuliacan South, planted CCAguaruto

So what exactly is the main mission of SGWM? Saving Grace World Missions exists to reach people of every tribe, tongue, and nation with the Gospel. Specifically, their vision is to reach those who are “unreached,” and never heard the Gospel with the saving news of Jesus Christ. SGWM accomplishes this vision in three ways; #1- Through Missionary Care, #2- By Raising up Nationals, and #3- by Church planting!

For our family serving on the field, one of the main benefits of SGWM has been the administration work required to facilitate our family and ministry support. Their labors stateside, allows our financial partners like you to give to a US-based missions organization and receive your much-deserved tax deductions! SGWM then gets those finances to us to be used on the mission field!

The president of SGWM is my good friend and pastor, Trent Douglass! Trent was the pastor that ordained me, and sent our family here to church plant back in 2002. Trent has also been instrumental in our work here in Mexico, and the regular visits from him and his wife Debbie and their missions teams have been vital to our success! Trent is a regular guest speaker at our church, and also a faithful contributor to our yearly Church planting conference.

 I can always count on Trent and our sending church to partner financially in our church plants together as well! Our most recent church plant was to the large city of Hermosillo. Trent generously offered to match our church’s large gift to outfit their spacious new church facility with air conditioning. (A must in this desert city that averages 105 degrees in the summer)

Three years ago, SGWM began a missions school that they have based right here in Rosarito. The staff and students have been a huge blessing to us, not only as they served in our church in Rosarito, but through their many outreaches to our local church plants every summer!

Saving Grace World Missions have been a faithful mission’s partner with us from the very beginning and I trust they will continue with us many years into the future. In a changing world, they have been a faithful rock of stability that we have been able to count on and work with.  

We are not only thankful for the partnership of SGWM, but also for you, our faithful partners! It’s through your prayers that God meets our spiritual needs, and through your financial giving that God meets our physical needs. We love you and thank God for you!  

Con mucho amor de Mexico,  (with much love from Mexico)

Mike, Sarah, Grace, and Daniel

Prayer Requests!

#1-  That God would bless SGWM and the work they do worldwide through their missionaries.

#2-  That God would provide for the financial needs of our family, church, and church plants, and keep us safe in these dangerous times!   

Praise Reports!

#1- Praise God for our latest church plants in the desert city of Hermosillo!

#2- Praise God for three fruitful missions trips to Morelia, Loreto, and Guatemala City!

September 2021 Vincent Family Missions Update

Greetings from Mexico,

This past month of August was BUSY and full of church planting activities for us here south of the Border! I know that I talk a lot about church planting in these updates, but I want you to know that this is your spiritual fruit, and we are thankful for your partnership!

August began with our 4th annual church planting conference! We were blessed to have nearly 500 attendee’s this year that flew in from the USA, different parts of Mexico, and even from Peru in South America. I may be biased, but I believe that this was our best conference ever! For me personally, these conferences are like a big family reunion, where I get to see so many of my church planting friends return to the sending hub (home base) in Rosarito!

The topic of the conference this year was “Lessons from the ancient church plants”, and we heard timely teachings based off the early church plants in Jerusalem, Antioch, and from the churches that Paul planted on his missionary journeys.  We also had (a record) 18 breakout workshop sessions with a variety of topics for the attendee’s to choose from. As always, the most popular workshops are the ladies workshops, and my beautiful bride Sarah hosted a fantastic one with her friends (and Pastor’s wives) Beni and Eli!

The highlight for this conference was definitely found at the end as we all came together to send out our newest church planting team to Hermosillo! 3 years ago, we made the decision to send out a church plant at the end of every conference, so our guests can see what that looks like and be encouraged to do it in their own churches! Keep our latest church plant to Hermosillo (#30) in your prayers!

I am also blessed to reveal for the first time our new church planting partnership program! After 13 years of hosting our church planting school in our local church, we got all of our class materials together along with our church plantings teachings and we now offer it free to any churches that want to partner with us and start their own  church planting school!

The first day of Calvary Chapel Bear Creek’s Church Planting Class!

Starting in August, we have two new church planting partners, and I got to visit with both of those schools this month! Our first partnering church is Calvary Chapel Bear Creek located in Wildomar! (Southern California) My good friend Pastor Steve Price has partnered with us for 5 years in church planting, and he planned to start his church planting school this August. Unfortunately, God called Pastor Steve home to heaven earlier this year, but his Assistant Pastors are continuing that vision and started their school. I was blessed to teach their first class up in California along with my church planting assistant, Super Mario Medrano!

Teaching the students in Peru on video through ZOOM!

We also have a new church planting partner in the South American country of Peru! My friend Pastor Cory Kilgus, brought a couple of his students up to our conference, and after talking together he has agreed to use our curriculum to raise up church planters in Peru! Just last night I was blessed to teach their class via ZOOM, and it was so encouraging to share with his 20 students that all have a passion to plant churches throughout South America!

When our family first moved to Mexico way back in 2002, God gave me 1st Corinthians 3:6 as our missions verse. The Apostle Paul writes there, “I planted, Apolos watered, but God gave the increase!” God was reminding me that to do a great missions work, I would need faithful ministry partners to join us through their financial giving and prayers! Our family is so thankful for your love, partnership, and prayers over the years! 

Con mucho amor de Mexico,  (with much love from Mexico)

Mike, Sarah, Grace, and Daniel

Prayer Requests!

#1-  That God would bless the church planting schools of our new partners, in Wildomar (Ca), and in Peru!

#2-  That God would provide for the financial needs of our family, church, and church plants, and keep us safe in these dangerous times!   

Praise Reports!

#1- Praise God for a wonderful church planting conference, with many getting encouraged!

#2- Praise God for our new church planting evening course, that has 21 first-time students attending! (Along with 30 in our afternoon course)

August 2021 Vincent Family Mission Update

Greetings from Mexico,

Rosarito Beach Pier 2021!

What do you call 180 AMPED UP kids that are ready to have some fun and learn about Jesus? You call it the Calvary Rosarito Summer Vacation Bible School (VBS)! In July, we were blessed to once again host our annual VBS and our church sold our pre-selected attendance goals in just one week! This summer, our theme is “Treasures in the Eyes of the Lord”, and each one of the children (ages 3 to 12) learned every day about how precious they are as treasures of the Lord!

Each morning of this summer camp began with a fun and energetic time of worship and dancing! Seeing these children jump around to songs all about Jesus would fill anyone’s heart with joy! After the worship time, comes the team-wide screaming contest! (I don’t think that’s what they called it, but that’s what it looked like and sounded like to me!) This ear-splitting event helped the leaders decide which age group was ready first to leave the sanctuary and go on their treasure hunt! The most passionate team then headed out first, followed by the rest!

The children’s day continued with non-stop activities! Over the course of the day, each color coded team stopped by one of five themed stations where they completed a fun activity, followed by a short Bible lesson. As I watched the children participate, I couldn’t find one child that wasn’t full engaged and enjoying themselves! THANK YOU LORD!

A special blessing to me was to see the 60 volunteers that committed to serve and teach these precious children! We had moms and dads helping, we had retired folks helping, and we had a bunch of youth helping too! All of these volunteers served under the well-organized leadership of our church’s children’s ministry Pastor Oliver Zuniga! We were also blessed to have one of our partner churches (Calvary Chapel Westgrove) bring their high school team down to help us out with our VBS all week long!

Jesus said in Matthew 19:14, “let the little children come unto me” and we were blessed to witness that happening, again and again throughout VBS week! Each and every day, the children were given the opportunity to place their faith in Jesus, and we saw many children take this most important step for the very first time during VBS!

As a Pastor, there is no greater joy for me than to see our church taken over by smiling kids that are enjoying the Lord and receiving the opportunity to learn about Him! As I was working in my office this week, I couldn’t stop smiling as I heard shouts of laughter and cries of joy occurring again and again!

Once again, I want to thank you for partnering with us in this great missions work. It is through your prayers, that God provides our spiritual needs, and through your financial gifts, that God provides our physical needs! We love you and are thankful for you!

July 2021 Vincent Family Missions Update

Greetings from Rosarito Beach Mexico,

June was a busy month for us as I am sure it was for many of you! Personally, Sarah and I got to celebrate our 24th wedding anniversary! We had a great time together and we laughed about how 19 of those years have been spent right here in Mexico! On the ministry side of things, our church had a fun Cowboy themed Father’s Day Celebration, with a Father’s Day Photo booth! (Happy Father’s day to all of you father’s out there, and thank you for the great job you do!)

This summer began with me busily preparing for our Bilingual Church Planting Conference that we host every summer as a church! In this update, I wanted to let you know what we have planned for this upcoming conference, and share a couple of prayer points with you.

7 years ago, we started our annual church planting conference, and each year we have seen it grow little by little. Last year (in the middle of the Covid19 pandemic), we had our largest conference yet. But with things slowly returning to normal, this  year we are asking God for even bigger and better things!

The dates of this year’s conference are August 6th and 7th (Friday and Saturday) and the event will be held once again at our church facility! We have a fantastic theme this year of “Lessons from the Ancient Church Planters”! We are planning on looking at 7 of the early churches found in the book of Acts and Paul’s epistles, to learn unique lessons from each one of them in regards to church planting!

We have an amazing line up of teachers this year which include three of our very own church planters, Hugo Limon (Culiacan), Aaron Smith (Punta Gorda Florida), and Fernando Serrano (Las Vegas) We also have my good friend Pastor Daniel Nunez joining us, who is a local hero of mine that has planted over 40 churches in Mexico and beyond. I am blessed to have  Pastor Bruce Zackary (Calvary Nexus in Camarillo) teaching who is not only one of my personal mentors but also the author of the Church planting manual that we use in our church planting school. My Pastor and friend Trent Douglass of CCSaving Grace will also be teaching.

Aside from the main teachings, we also have an amazing lineup of 15 breakout/workshop sessions taught by gifted men and women covering a wide variety of interests and specialized topics! I believe that we are going to end the conference with the biggest highlight of all! For the third year in a row, we are ending the conference by sending out a new church plant together.

My friends Mary and German Lopez joined our church 3 years ago to be trained up to church plant in their hometown state of Sonora! (One state over to the East from Baja) We are planning to send them out to the capital city of Sonora, Hermosillo which has over 1 million inhabitants! I was blessed to take a vision tour in June with this gifted couple, and it was amazing to see God’s plans for them already unfolding! Mary and German have a fire burning in them, that matched the blazing 112 degree temperatures we experienced in that desert town!

Finally, I would like to personally invite you to attend our church planting conference this year! As always, the conference is free, and is open to anyone with a heart to SEND and partner with church planters or to BE SENT to church plant in the future!

Once again, I want to thank you for partnering with us in this amazing work.  We feel honored and humbled that you choose to partner with us through your prayers and finances!  We love you and are thankful for you!

Con mucho amor de Mexico,  (with much love from Mexico)

Mike, Sarah, Grace, and Daniel

Prayer Requests!

#1-  That God would bless the preparation for our upcoming church planting conference!

#2-  That God would provide for the financial needs of our family, church, and church plants!

June 2021 Vincent Family Missions Update

Greetings from Mexico,

In May, I got to take the trip of a lifetime to Culiacan Sinaloa! Culiacan is famous for being the hometown for the #1 drug Lord in the past 20 years, El Chapo (who thankfully is sitting in a New York High Security Jail right now)! But much more important than that, is that Culiacan is the home to a Church Plant that has become a sending hub!

I was able to travel to Sinaloa with three pastor friends to meet my good friend and church planter Hugo Limon! Hugo was an assistant Pastor with us many years ago, and we sent him out back in 2015 to church plant in his hometown of Culiacan! Because Culiacan is a state capital city with over 1 million inhabitants, Pastor Hugo had a plan to plant 4 churches in his city from the very beginning!

My trip to Culiacan was to celebrate the completion of Hugo’s vision after just 6 years! While I was in Culiacan we got to ordain Hugo’s newest church planter Mario and witness the inauguration of Calvary Culiacan West! Hugo has now planted four other churches and we got to visit every one of them during our time there. On these visits, we were blessed to sit with and pray for each pastor, and give them a generous financial gift from our church in Rosarito.

Also on this trip, we were blessed to visit our very first 3rd generation church plant! Now you might be wondering, what is a 3rd generation church plant? A 3rd generation church plant is the church plant from a church plant of a church plant! Here’s how that works. We sent out Pastor Hugo in 2015 to plant Calvary Culiacan North! Hugo then sent out his good friend Pastor Valerio to church plant Calvary Culiacan South in 2018! And Pastor Valerio sent out my new friend Pastor Antonio to church plant Calvary Aguaruto on the Sunday we were there.

I was so blessed to ordain Pastor Antonio on Sunday morning at his sending church CCSouth! And then in the afternoon, I had the honor and privilege of teaching at their first official Sunday service! I was filled with thanksgiving as we drove the 45 minutes out of Culiacan to this small agricultural community of Aguaruto.  When I arrived at their new church facility I was blown away! Over 125 people were in attendance at their grand opening service! There was joy, happiness, and excitement everywhere as we got to witness our Almighty God do a miracle and give this brand new church an awe inspiring start!

By the end of our 5 day journey, our missions team had visited all 7 of Hugo’s church plants and future church planters that are still in the Home Bible study phase! It was awe inspiring to see the excitement of the people in their churches. Each church plant has accepted the challenge to not only reach their local community, but to be a church planting hub. Each church has committed to send some of their servant leaders to the church planting course that is given at Pastor Hugo’s original church located in North Culiacan.

A special highlight for me was the opportunity to do a two-hour sit-down Question and Answer time with Hugo’s church planting students! I was amazed when over 40 students showed up for the class! (That’s more than we have in our church planting program in Rosarito!) These students came ready to stump me with very difficult questions about every aspect of the church! But the Lord was with me, and we had a wonderful time learning together.  

Precious friends, thank you so much for partnering with us and allowing our church to be a sending hub of church planting. The heart of our church planting program is to send out Pastors that will plant churches that are also sending hubs. And that’s exactly what we’re seeing in the churches in Culiacan!

Finally, I want to thank you for partnering with our family and ministry! It is through your prayers that God meets our spiritual needs, and it’s through your financial partnership that God meets our physical needs. We love you and are thankful for you!

Con mucho amor de Mexico,  (with much love from Mexico)

Mike, Sarah, Grace, and Daniel

Prayer Requests!

#1-  That God would bless Pastor Hugo’s new church plant (Calvary Culiacan West) and our new 3rd generation church plant! (Calvary Auguaruto)

#2-  That God would provide for the financial needs of our family, church, and church plants!   

Praise Reports!

#1- Praise God that we got to plant our 29th church in May! Please pray for Calvary Chapel La Mina (the mine) and it’s new pastor Ruben!

#2- Praise God that God continues to bring back people to our church here in Rosarito after the Pandemic!

Vincent Family Update May 2021

Greetings from Mexico,

During May in Mexico, the focus is on the children! And to celebrate children, this month our church got to celebrate the  “Día Del Nino”! (the Day of the Child)  This fun holiday began in Mexico all the way back in 1924. And one of the many things I love about our adopted country of Mexico is the way that it honors and blesses children!

In every city that you visit in Mexico, you will see streets called “Nino’s Heroes” (Children Hero’s) These street’s honor 6 boys that were part of a military academy in a city called Chapultapec that fought to the death against the invading US marines back in the year 1847. One of these courageous boys famously wrapped himself up in the Mexican flag to keep it from falling into the invaders hands. Sadly all 6 boys were killed, but they are celebrated and remembered still to this day in every city of the Republic.  

Our church has always loved children! Our love for children began all the way back in 2002 when my wife Sarah and a few good friends picked up the poor children of the community to bring them to church.  And to this day, we are averaging nearly 300 precious children each weekend at our church.  Our children’s ministry director Oliver and his team of 50 servant/ teachers do a fantastic job ministering to and blessing these precious children.

On April 30th, Mexico celebrates and honors the children of Mexico and to join in the fun, our church threw a huge party for 180 of our children. This 3 hour Saturday event was packed with fun, candy, games, and all you can eat pizza! But the focus of this party was Jesus! And it never get’s old to see children respond to the love and salvation that Jesus freely offers them.  

It was our Savior Jesus that told His disciples “let the little children come unto me” (Matthew 19:14)  and it’s such a blessing to see children coming to Jesus. Children come to Jesus with what He described as  “a childlike faith” (Matthew 18:3) that He desires that each one of us would have.  

Our young adults group AGAMOS hosted and served the children at our Día Del Nino party!  This team of 20 young adults (including my daughter Grace) gave up their Saturday to serve these precious children. And they joined in the fun by dressing up, acting silly, and making sure that each one of these children felt deeply loved.

Thank you so much for allowing us to plant a church and ministry that reaches the precious children in Mexico that God loves so much! Each one of these little ones is precious to our heavenly father, and we are thankful that you partner with us in this great work!

Con mucho amor de Mexico,  (with much love from Mexico)

Mike, Sarah, Grace, and Daniel

Prayer Requests!

#1-  That God would bless our next church plant in May! (Calvary La Mina “The mine”) in the outskirts of Rosarito!    

#2-  That God would provide for the financial needs of our family, church, and church plants!   

Praise Reports!

#1- Praise God that we got to plant our 28th church in April! Please pray for Menifee Bilingual church and it’s pastor, Jonathan Hernandez!

#2- Praise God I was able to take two fruitful church planting trips in April to Guatemala and the Mexican state of Chihuahua!

Vincent Family April 2021 Missions Update

Greetings from Mexico,

Everyone loves a good story, especially when it’s true! In this update, I am happy to share an amazing story with you of a changed life that only Jesus can do! My friend Eddie first showed up at our church 12 years ago. With a knife in hand, he was stalking a guy that attended our church from time to time that had stolen from him, with plans to murder him after the service.

This was nothing new to Eddie. He had been in more deadly gang fights than you could imagine, and the very fact that he had survived 8 gunshots and a lifetime deportation was a miracle. But as Eddie sat in our church service, fiddling with the knife in his pocket, something miraculous began to happen. He began to listen to my sermon, and at the end of the service, he threw the knife in the trash, and professed faith in Jesus Christ for the first time in his life!

Over the next few years, Eddie brought his live in girlfriend to church and they both were saved, then baptized! Eddie even proposed to his girlfriend in our church sanctuary, which led to an amazing wedding celebration and then a few children as well!

Eddie eventually became one of my good friends, and I would talk with him from time to time about church planting. You see, Eddie doesn’t only have the gift of gab, but the biggest smile I had ever seen, and a magnetic personality. Three years ago, Eddie entered our church planting school, and he began the class with (how can I say this) much room for improvement.

But as Eddie worked on his preaching and leadership skills, God began to put the Rosarito dump and the poor families that live there on his heart! Two and a half years ago, Eddie began a weekly Bible study in the dump and the small neighboring community called Homex.  

Over time God made things crystal clear, He was raising up a church in this devastated community, and He was calling Eddie to be their pastor and church planter. Fast forward 3 years, and at the end of March, I had the privilege and honor of ordaining Eddie and sending out his family and missions team as our church’s 27th church plant!

The community of Homex is one of the poorest and most dangerous communities I have ever visited. Located just 30 minutes from Rosarito, it seems to be a world away because of the crime and hopelessness of the people living there. Yet this is exactly the place where God has called us to plant our newest church!

Eddie and his gifted wife Jeanette, have started a feeding kitchen for the children, and they have rented a small house where they host their weekly church services. They have worked hard to raise up some local leaders, and they pick up a group of people from the Rosarito dump (15 minute walk away) that are also committed to join up with this new church!

I have had the privilege and honor of joining the team quite a few times, and this is a very fruitful ministry! Only God could take a man that had murder on his mind, and transform him into a Pastor and church planter. Please keep this new church plant of Homex in your prayers, and if you’re interested in visiting or supporting them, please let me know!

Finally, I want to once again thank you for your faithful partnership with us as your missionaries here in Mexico. It is through your prayers that God meets our spiritual needs, and through your financial giving that God meets our physical needs! And it’s an honor and a privilege to share with you in this fruitful work!

Con mucho amor de Mexico,  (with much love from Mexico)

Mike, Sarah, Grace, and Daniel

Prayer Requests!

#1-  That God would bless our upcoming bilingual church planting conference in August!   

#2-  That God would bless our newest church plant “Calvary Homex” and church planter Eddie and his family!  

Praise Reports!

#1- Praise God that our latest church plant in Loreto is thriving and growing after only 3 months!   

#2- Praise God that Sarah and I were able to visit Loreto and encourage the church together!

Vincent Family March 2021 Missions Update

Greetings from Mexico,

I hope this update finds you and your family healthy and blessed! In this update, I wanted to do a special THROWBACK EDITION! As we approach our 19th year of serving as missionaries here in Mexico, I wanted to take a trip down memory lane with you and glance back and give thanks for all of the great things God has done!

We were sent out from Calvary Chapel Saving Grace in Yorba Linda, California back in June of 2002.  At that time, Grace had turned 2 years old, and Daniel was less than one month old! (I have often laughingly told our church planters, I don’t recommend church planting with two babies two or under!) Our welcome to Mexico was having our vehicle stolen from the front of our double wide mobile home. From the beginning, it was obvious that the devil didn’t want us here.

After 6 months, our small home fellowship meeting in a living room in a house up on the hill had grown to 12 adults, and it was time to look for a little storefront to rent. Our first rented sanctuary had room for only 20 chairs, and we loved it!  We were so blessed to have two small rooms to gather in, a small sanctuary and packed out children’s ministry which was led by Sarah every Sunday!

Little by little God added new believers to the church, and after 2 years in our small facility, we made the move to the church on the hill. What a blessing it was to spend 7 years on that hill and see the Great things that our Lord wanted to do.

 It was during that time that God began to stir my heart about church planting, and we started up our church planting program! And it was in that facility, that we were able to send out our first three church plants! It was also during those foundational years that God began to bring strategic church partners and called men and women to partner with us in this great work!

After 7 years in the wonderful facility on the hill, God called our church to move one final (I hope) time in 2012. At the perfect time, God opened up a large factory off of the famed Rosarito toll road, which has become our church home for the past 9 years!

What a blessing it is to reflect on all that God has done. The baby dedications and the weddings and the baptisms, and changed lives! God transforming our local church to be a sending hub of church planting to the nations. God’s promises are true, and He has truly done “more than we could ever ask or imagine” (Ephesians 3:20)

Over the years, I have come to realize that the ministry constantly changes.  The people change, the facilities change, the challenges change, but there is one thing that never changes, and that is God and His faithfulness. In fact, if I had to whittle the past nearly two decades of ministry down to just one phrase it would be this, “God has been faithful!” The Bible puts it this way in 2 Timothy 2:13,  “Even when we are faithless, He is faithful!”  Even when our faith has faded, God has remained faithful every step of the way!

Another key part of our ministry has been you, our precious ministry partners! You too have been faithful every step of the way through this long journey. And it’s been through your faithful prayers and financial support that we have been able to remain here in Mexico as your missionaries over the past 18+ years!

I want to finish up this “Vincent Throw back edition” update by saying, thank you Lord for your faithfulness, and THANK YOU to you, our faithful ministry partners!

Con mucho amor de Mexico,  (with much love from Mexico)

Mike, Sarah, Grace, and Daniel

Vincent Family February 2021 Missions Update

Greetings from Mexico,

I hope this update finds you and your family healthy and blessed! This past month I had another birthday and I am feeling old! The older I get, the more the Lord reminds me of the importance of raising up the next generation!

In his final letter, the apostle Paul reminded Timothy of the importance of raising up the next generation to do the work of the ministry. Paul put it this way in 2 Timothy 2:2,  “And the things that you have heard from me among many witnesses, commit these to faithful men who will be able to teach others also.” 

One of the reasons I started our church’s live-in internship program 12 years ago was to raise up the next generation of young men to be servant leaders, pastors, and church planters. In this update, I wanted to tell you the story of three of the young men in their 20’s that He is raising up in our church!

I first met my friend Abraham Gonzalez when he professed faith and was baptized as a college student at our church. After serving faithfully, Abraham took a leap of faith, quit his job, and moved into our on-site intern apartment to train up for the ministry!

Over the past 3 years, Abraham has completed our two-year church planting program, served as a leader in our young adults group, and become one of my main translators. If you have watched our live-stream teachings, Abraham is the young man that is often translating by my side on Sundays! While Abraham serves faithfully at the church he waits for the Lord’s timing and location for a future church plant.

Samuel (Sammy) Alderete has attended our church with our family for the past 5 years. After graduating from Calvary Chapel Bible College in Ensenada, Sammy felt the call to church plant. Last year, Sammy joined up with our church staff as an intern and began our church planting program! Samuel has excelled in everything he has done and is a quick learner.

Sammy is also a key part of our new media ministry (fully staffed by young adults) that works hard to transmit our live services online each Sunday at 9am and Wednesday’s at 6:30pm. Samuel also serves as one of our main English translators that translates from the pulpit when our Spanish speaking Pastors are teaching! After just over a year, Samuel has heard the call and he believes that the Lord is calling him to plant a church in the Los Angeles area of the United States!

Oliver, his wife Rosa and their son joined our church staff two years ago after graduating from a Bible School in La Paz where he served at our church plant there. Oliver has served in a variety of ministries at our church. These ministries include translating for me on Wednesday evenings, teaching in our Bible school, and translating the text of my sermons into Spanish so they can be sent to our church planters.

Recently, Oliver took over as our church’s children’s ministry director. This is a large job as on an average (non-covid) weekend, we have around 300 children under the age of 12 in attendance. As a graduate of our church planting program, Oliver and his family recently took a church planting vision tour to his hometown of Colima! (A city of over 1 million located on the western coast of Central Mexico.) Please pray for God to reveal his perfect timing for this precious family to be sent out to church plant!

All three of these men are not only excellent translators but great Bible teachers in their own right. I am giving each one of these young men the opportunity to teach a Wednesday (mid-week) Bible study over the next three months. If you would like to hear them teach, feel free to join us for our livestream service streamed live on YOUTUBE or on our church’s facebook page!

I also wanted to share a quick update on our son Daniel. After a month Daniel tested negative for the coronavirus and was able to move back home. We are thankful that Daniel’s symptoms were mild and he has made a complete recovery! Thank you for your prayers, and we continue to pray for those of you that have had your families affected and devastated by this horrific virus.

Finally, we feel honored and blessed that you have chosen to partner with us as your missionaries in these difficult times. Thank you so much for your prayers and financial giving which allows us to serve full-time here in the mission field of Mexico!

Con mucho amor de Mexico,  (with much love from Mexico)

Mike, Sarah, Grace, and Daniel

Prayer Requests!

#1-  That God would lead these three young men in their service to the Lord and future church plants!

#2-  That God would bless our new batch of church planters beginning classes in February!

Praise Reports!

#1- Praise God that our son Daniel healed quickly and completely from Covid!

#2- Praise God that our brand new church plant in Loreto already found a new building and has been given free rent for a year!

Vincent Family January 2021 Update

Greetings from Mexico,

I hope this update finds you and your family healthy and blessed! This past month was a difficult month for many people, with COVID hitting hard all over the world! And this month the pandemic hit close to home with our family and church!

At the start of December, I was preaching at our church at our evening Bible study, when I was told the police were waiting outside. After the service, they entered our patio and closed the church down and threatened us with a fine! Even though a new law had unjustly targeted church’s and work out gym’s by the government, (leaving open the bars, casino’s and strip clubs) we decided to comply with the threat and close our church doors.

Our church is blessed to have a large parking lot, which enabled us to host another one of our outside “Car Church” services! Miraculously, after just 7 days the state legislature overturned this unjust law, and with government permission in hand, we were blessed to re-open our church with safety measures in place after just 7 days of closing.

On the home front, our family finally encountered what so many others have faced, and our son Daniel got sick and then tested positive for covid. Even though Sarah, Grace, and I felt fine, with dread in our hearts we traveled to get tested the following day. Thankfully, our three tests came out negative, so our son Daniel moved alone into a local friends beach house to quarantine through the holidays.

Over the past three weeks, we have been making twice daily trips (with masks) to visit Daniel and bring him food. We are able to chat with him through the screen door, and we brought him our big white puppy YUKI to live with him and keep him company! Thankfully, Daniel’s symptoms never got very serious, even though he retested after 20 days and was still testing positive. It was sad to have a separated Christmas and have to social distance from our precious son, but we understood that we were facing what millions of other’s have faced throughout this difficult past year. Please pray that Daniel’s quarantine will end soon, and he will be able to move back home.

            One big blessing in the church was finishing up our year with another church plant (our forth church plant of the year). Our church family was blessed to send out our good friends and church staffers, Elmer and Crystal Cardenas to plant a church in a city called Loreto.

 Loreto is located 2/3rds of the way down the beautiful Baja peninsula, and is famous for it’s fishing businesses in the gulf and it’s pristine beaches with clear water! We sent out two other couples and a staffer to join in this new work, so please keep them in your prayers!

Finally, we feel honored and blessed that you have chosen to partner with us as your missionaries in these difficult times. It’s through your prayers that God provides for our spiritual needs and through your financial support that God provides for our physical needs. THANK YOU!

Con mucho amor de Mexico,  (with much love from Mexico)

Mike, Sarah, Grace, and Daniel

Prayer Requests!

#1-  That God would heal our son Daniel (and the many others affected) of the Corona Virus.

#2-  That God would bless our newest church plant Calvary Chapel Loreto!

Praise Reports!

#1- Praise God that we were able to send out our 26th church plant in December!       

#2- Praise God for the healthy re-opening of our church after being shut down by the local police.
