After only four days of the Calvary School of Missions, the Lord has been faithful to answer many of my prayers leading up to it. Before coming out to Mexico, I had known that going on outreaches was a part of what we would be doing down here, so I began to pray that the Lord would prepare the hearts of the people here in Mexico, as well as preparing the hearts of the School of Missions students, by allowing us to be bold enough to share Jesus. Let me say that today, Thursday, July 11th, God has answered those prayers and has added to the church a special lady! I came down here seeking to hear from God, and He has spoken. The Lord has allowed us to harvest, which is what I had asked Him for before coming. Seeing God answer this prayer gives me hope and confidence that He will continue answering my other prayers, which includes God showing me where He’s calling me to serve Him.
Today, our outreach was in the Rosarito dump. We prepared sandwiches in the morning so we could both physically and spiritually feed the people who work and live there. Those who work in the dump spend all day sorting through what the garbage trucks drop off, in order to collect things that they can sell, so that they may eat. As I was talking to the director of the ministry that we partnered with, I told him that I was surprised to find out that these weren’t government workers. I expressed to him that I guess that I still had an American mindset, and it was hard for me to believe that people actually go to the dump to “work.” His answer hit me with reality. He said, “Down here, if people don’t work, they don’t eat.” So we were given the privilege to go and be with these people, sharing God’s word with them, serving them food and eating with them, just like Jesus did when He came to earth to live with us. We got to be the hands and feet of Jesus! And through this outreach, we were able to see this special lady, who lives in the dump, profess faith in Jesus Christ, and accept Him as her Lord and Savior. What an awesome privilege it was for me to be there to celebrate with her, and to also be able to interpret the message that was taught, which helped her heart open up to Jesus. This was only the fourth day of my six weeks down here in Mexico! Praise be to God! Would you be willing to partner with me in furthering God’s kingdom? If so, pray for me, and consider joining me in this call that God has placed on my life of cross cultural missions.
Pray for God to reveal where He wants me to go.
Pray that God would allow me to continue to grow in my knowledge of His word.
Pray that God would continue to provide the funds that I still need to raise.
Pray that He would continue to embolden our team to share the gospel and that we may continue to harvest wherever we go.
Thank you for taking the time to read this.
For His glory,
