The Brechtel Family Update September 2018

I can’t believe it’s almost fall.  Our time in Rosarito is really starting to fly by, and before we know it we’ll be planting a church in Oaxaca!

Jon completed his first quarter of teaching at the Bible College at CC Rosarito.  It was a great experience for him as he studied and prepared to teach each week in the book of Daniel.  He has 2 weeks off and will begin teaching a new class after the break.  He’s also teaching the New Believers class on Wednesday nights.  It’s neat to know that he’s teaching a class that meant so much to him when he first got saved.  I love how the Lord brings things full-circle like that.  He also teaches the 11 and 12-year-old class on Saturday nights.

Jonny and Noah have officially begun 6th grade.  We are homeschooling them again this year, and this is our 7th year of homeschool minus the few months that they attended school in Cacalote.  They are really enjoying their time in our neighborhood because they’ve become really close to one of the boys who lives across the street.  It’s going to be hard on them when we move, so let’s start praying for that one now!!!









I am really enjoying serving in the greeting ministry!  It’s my favorite!!!  I’m also teaching the 9 and 10-year-old class each Saturday.  It’s a challenge for me to prepare each week but I think I’m finally getting a good routine down.  I have a great translator/co-teacher too.

Jon and I are back in the Church Planting Course each week.  It’s been such a blessing to see how the Lord has used this course to prepare us more and more for what He’s called us to do.

We had a great time serving at the grand opening service for Calvary Valley Center.  Please keep this church plant in your prayers as they serve the people of Valley Center.

Our vision trip to Oaxaca is just 3 weeks away!!!  We are so excited to see what the Lord reveals to us while on this trip.



  • Worship leader for a church plant.
  • Wisdom for what to do with our car when we go to Oaxaca.  We don’t know if we can nationalize it because of some of the rules they have.  If our vehicle isn’t nationalized then we would have to drive it out of the country every 6 months which wouldn’t really be wise financially.
  • Our trip to Oaxaca City in October, that the Lord would show us where He wants us to plant His church

Thank you for continuing to follow along as we move forward in His calling for us to serve Him in Mexico! We are so grateful for each of you who love us, pray for us, support us, call us, and everything else.  We love you all!

Jon, Allison, Jonny, Noah

PS…my goal is to get more pictures of Jon and the boys this month.
