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!
