Dear ministry partners!
In this month’s update, I wanted to share with you some of the wonderful things that God has been doing through the children in our ministry! As you travel around the world on missions trips, one of the unique things that you will witness is that children are usually the first ones to come to the Lord! When missionaries move to a foreign country, it is usually the children that are open to hear about Jesus first!
Here in Rosarito, things worked that same way with our ministry! Since the very beginning back in 2002, we have been blessed to always have groups of children around the church!
At the present time, we continue with our Saturday street kids ministry, where we bring 30+children to our church each Saturday afternoon to hear about Jesus, play, do a craft, and enjoy a meal! We also minister to over 300 children every week at our weekend services!
This past month we enjoyed a very special VBS! (Vacation Bible School) In this summer’s edition, we had over children ages 5 to 12 join us this year and the racing style theme was “The Pits”! Each day the children got to race around the church campus on mini bikes and toy race cars, and throughout the day they would make “pit stops” for bible stories, crafts, and snacks!
The laughter could be heard from miles around, and each child had an amazing experience. Our ministry team did a fantastic job and over 40 teachers and youth volunteered to spend an entire week ministering to these precious children!
The highlight of our VBS week is always the final day where we present the message of salvation to the children! This year over 20 children made first time professions of faith. IN the Bible Jesus said, “Let the little children come unto me” and this week many of them did! Praise the Lord!
On the ministry side of things, we continue to focus on our church building fundraising project. In July we were blessed to host two fundraising dinners and many generous donors contributed, and God provided over 40,000 dollars towards our goal! Our present lease runs out at the end of this month (August), and we are still short of the purchase price, so please keep this project your prayers!
If you were not able to attend one of our fundraising dinners and would like to give a special one-time financial gift towards the building project, the direct online giving link is below!
Thank you once again for your love, prayers, and support of our family here on the mission field of Mexico! It is through your prayers that God meets our spiritual needs, and it is through your financial giving that God meets our physical needs! We love you and appreciate you!
Con mucho amor de Mexico, (with much love from Mexico)
Mike, Sarah, Grace, and Daniel
