Summer 2018 Update
It has been a busy and exciting couple of months.
The church is doing great as we have been blessed to see many people come to the Lord over the last few months and have had about 15 people baptized.
We had a men’s conference that went well as we had Pastor Gil Garcia from CC Rosedale, Bakersfield, CA and also Pastor Martin Garcia from CC Las Delicias, Tijuana, BC, Mexico come and share powerful messages from the Word.
We have begun a construction project at the church. The plan is to knock out a wall, expand the sanctuary and create a bigger space for fellowship. Calvary Chapel Hagerman came down with their youth group and helped us with some of the construction. The air conditioning is finished and working well, praise the Lord.
July has been busy as we have had family night every friday, watching movies and playing games. Our Vacation Bible School went well as we were able to minister to 30 kids over the course of 5 days. We are looking forward to having a women’s conference in October, please keep that in prayer.
Our oldest daughter Jamie had the opportunity to help Baja Christian Ministries with building homes for people in Tijuana. We are so proud of her as she has excelled in her studies and is deciding what her next step might be.
Brian and RJ have been doing well in basketball and enjoying their summer. RJ’s basketball team won the championship in a church league we were involved with at Calvary Chapel Rosarito. It was a great time playing with the boys in basketball. The boys also had friends from Idaho come stay for a few weeks, during summer break.
Mackenzie has been hanging out with her friends, she always stays busy with little craft projects and loves worshiping the Lord as she listens to her favorite worship songs. Jamie and Mackenzie attended a girl’s retreat with Calvary Chapel Rosarito.
Many of you know my grandma, Barbara, was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. Karen has been taking care of her for the past three months. We have just moved her up to San Jose where she will be well taken care of by my uncle. It will be great to have Karen back at home full time, we have definitely missed her much. Keep Barbara in prayer, she seems to be doing well in her battle with cancer, the Lord is in control.
We are so excited to share with you what has been happening in our lives as we serve the Lord in Mexico. Thank you for your spiritual support as you pray for us and also your physical support as you provide for us financially in the mission field of Mexico.
