Hola! We have had a full May and beginning of June. In May we finished our first semester of the Church Planting Course at CC Rosarito, along with the finish of this session of guitar class for Allison. It has been such a blessing to be a part of this course, and have the opportunity to serve here at Calvary Chapel Rosarito. Jon has been teaching in a rotation in the Pillars Class on Sunday mornings, and he will be teaching in the sanctuary on a Wednesday night at the end of June. We will also be teaching with a translator in children’s ministry, each of us in a different class/age group. This will be a new thing for Allison because she’s never taught with a translator. Oh, and Allison is now a greeter…does that shock anyone? Her dreams have come true…seriously!
We also had the honor of serving as chaplains at the Franklin Graham Decision America event in Escondido with our sending church, Calvary Chapel San Juan Capistrano. It was an amazing night serving with them and witnessing lives turning to the Lord at the event.
At the beginning of June, Jon went with a team from CCR to Calvary Chapel Maranatha in Mazatlán. The team worked long hours doing construction on the building, remodeling the sanctuary. It was a blessing for him to be on this trip for many reasons. Pastor Tony, his wife, and son opened their home to us when we drove back to California in October from Oaxaca. They didn’t even know us but our connection went back to Roca Blanca Spanish School, to a woman who also barely knew us, Nancy, who serves at the church in Mazatlán. Just a fun story about how awesome God is!!! It was also a blessing for Jon because he really got to know the guys he was on the trip with and bonded with them. He came home refreshed even though they had been working so hard.
Next month we will officially be gaining a daughter when Austin and McKenna get married. We praise the Lord for their relationship and can’t wait to watch them grow as a couple in the many years to come.
- for a worship leader to be raised up to go to Oaxaca with us
- that we would practice/use Spanish every day and grow in the language
- for Jon to do well when he teaches in the sanctuary
- Jon’s foot to heal or for a doctor to treat it so it’s not so painful
We are grateful for all of you who love us and check up on us, pray for and support us. Thank you all for being there for us! We love you!
Jon, Allison, Jonny, Noah
