To my faithful friends and family,
“My son has never come home this happy.” A mother told Pastor Eddie of Calvary Chapel HomeX in Mexico. “Why is he so happy?” Eddie replied, “He has received Jesus.”
If you have followed my journeys, you’re familiar with Pastor Eddie’s story. I first met him last year and visited him this past weekend. As we drove around with him and picked up kids to come to a service at the church, he told me this story about a mother and her son. Through the example of this boy, his mother received Jesus and started coming to church. Praise God for the amazing work He is doing at Calvary Chapel HomeX!
The recent trip to Mexico was a wonderful opportunity for me to reflect on the past 12 months. This time last year, I had just graduated college and was on my first mission trip as a student at the School of Missions. Now, I have been on ten mission trips in four different countries! If you haven’t heard about these trips, You can read the stories through my website.
Thank you so much for your faithfulness and support of the gospel. All that has happened is YOUR spiritual fruit.
The story Eddie told reminded me of a reason we do VBS here at home. I pray those of you involved with VBS this summer are encouraged by its importance. It is a wonderful opportunity to share the gospel, not just with children but through the children to families. I just had the wonderful opportunity to serve in VBS at Calvary Chapel Beachside, where my family has been attending for about 6 years. God has used my faithful family in the faith at Beachside to keep me grounded in the word through college and cover all of my mission trips in prayer. The day before VBS started, I could share with everyone about my upcoming trip to Peru, which was a huge encouragement. Many of you are reading this and are part of my Beachside family. Thank you so much for your love and Co-labor in the gospel!
A couple of months ago, we had a dinner to inform the body at Calvary Chapel WestGrove about what He has been doing and my upcoming trip to Peru. If you could not be there, please watch the video below, as it is a quick and fun summary of what God has done this year!
On July 31st, I will be leaving for another week’s trip to Mexico with a team arriving from Peru. Then I will fly with the team on August 7th for my semester-long internship at Calvary Chapel Trujillo! I plan to return the week of thanksgiving. This will be a wonderful opportunity to continue learning in training for the calling God has on my life- Cross-cultural discipleship and church planting!
This is Pastor Cory and his family. He leads the ministry at Calvary Chapel Trujillo as well as the Calvary Bible Institute there. I was able to meet him at the School of Missions last year and look forward to working with Him during my time in Peru. Cory has a wonderful heart for reaching the country and the world with the gospel. This recent photo shows him visiting the jungle where, God willing, I’ll be able to go during my trip.
I plan to help lead a bible study, evangelism group, and more. Please be praying for open hearts for those who will hear the gospel through the work in Peru. I look forward to sharing with you the amazing stories of what God does these next few months!
I am looking to build a team of monthly financial supporters for Peru and beyond! Would you consider becoming a monthly partner with me in the gospel? You can give it through the link below. Thank you for your Co-labor in Christ!
