Back to Our Roots

Our team

First off, we want to thank you for your continued prayer and support for our family over the years. It is very incredible to think that Mike and I have had the privilege of being in full time ministry for the last 18 years. Saving Grace World Missions has developed a six-week missions training program over the summer for anyone for is interested in being involved with or going on the foreign mission field. Both Mike an I had the opportunity to go down for a few days to serve and use it as a personal retreat to seek the Lord and get refreshed. During that trip, the Lord put in on our hearts to come back to our roots.  

As many of you know we have lead the youth ministry at our church for the last ten years. We merge together the passion of reaching the nations with the Gospel and raising up the next Generation for the Gospel. In both our lives, God used our frequent missions trips to Mexico to stir us up as well as train us for being on the mission field. We felt it would be amazing to start quarterly missions trips with the youth of our church to serve in Mexico with our sister church Calvary Chapel Rosarito and their small church plants.  

Early November we took our first youth missions trip in a while with a large batch of kids, many of whom had never been on a mission trip. It was amazing to be able to help them experience loving others even when it is not comfortable. It literally dumped rain and we had crazy monsoon power winds in the middle of the outreach. The kids did amazing sharing a kids’ message through a translator for the first time. Some worked by building a “wall” with tires for the church property that we were doing the outreach at, and they packed and distributed Covid relief bags for the community.  

Its such a joy to walk in the calling the Lord has for us in this season where we are serving our missionaries and potentially discipling and training future senders and goers into the mission field. Thank you again for your prayer and encouragement and support. May we continue to go strong together for the sake of the Gospel.
