It has been a great month of February. We are so grateful to be serving the Lord here in Playas De Tijuana, México. We were blessed to have our good friends Richard and Kim White come down with a group of bible college students and put on a women’s conference. It was an incredible time, over 40 women came out for the two day event. The women came away grateful as they learned about the importance of following Jesus wholeheartedly.
Our weekly studies are going well. There are about 20 people showing up to each of the weekly discipleship studies. The church is hungry for the word of God and it is exciting to see the growth the Lord is bringing through these times of fellowship and study. Our sanctuary is filling up on Sundays, we have a very diverse group of people. Mexican nationals, Deportees, African Americans, and Gringos. It is wonderful to see people from all walks of life enjoying fellowship through the Spirit of the living God. One Lord, one faith and one baptism! Thank you Jesus for this wonderful fellowship.
We were encouraged this last month to begin a bible study at a nearby cancer treatment center, Hope for Cancer. These are people who have come to Mexico from all over the world seeking alternative treatment for late stages of cancer. Oh man, this has been the most encouraging thing I’ve ever done in ministry. I thought I was going to be an encouragement to the patients, but it turned out to be quite the opposite. There are about 10 beautiful born again believers with their companions, spouses and relatives, that come to the study. They shared 2 testimonies last night and they were mind blowing. These brothers and sisters share about their trial, they rejoice in knowing Jesus is on the throne and in control. We weep, we pray, we study God’s word, we praise him in song, oh man it is powerful.
Please pray for our upcoming marriage conference on March 24th. We also have an opportunity to do biblical counseling at a local call center. What an opportunity to see people come to Christ and see lives changed by the power of God’s Word. We will have access to over 120 deported men and women, to counsel and encourage. Only Jesus can open a door for Christians to go into local businesses and preach the gospel, we are blown away.
Please pray for our ministry house, we have placed our first man in the home. He was deported 5 days ago, he spent 42 years in prison. He is a sweet brother in the Lord, his name is Edgar. Our goal for the home is to continue helping deported men transition into life in Mexico as we disciple them in the word of God. What an adventure!
Thank you for your prayerful support my brothers and sisters,
