The Lord has been so faithful to provide!
It is such a blessing to be serving the Lord in Mexico as a family. We have been in Playas de Tijuana for 3 years now, wow how time flies! We have almost finished the first phase of remodeling on the Church building and after adding more seats, more people keep coming to hear the gospel. It is definitely a work of the Holy Spirit. We have tiled, built a sound room, run electrical, drywall, and painted but, we are slowing down for a bit until we have the finances to finish.
Things have been going great at church. As we have expanded the sanctuary, the Lord continues to add to the church. We have had many professions of faith and are excited to see people grow in their faith as they come to discipleship studies at the church. We are organizing a women’s discipleship group which should start in November. We have a great group of Godly women who are excited to minister, encourage, and train the younger sisters in the Lord.
As a church family, we had a fun night of celebrating Mexican Independence day with God’s word, delicious food, music, and fun games. We were also blessed to have some dear friends visit us and we are so grateful for their loving support and friendship.
We have been reaching out to a local community, Laureles, every other month and are preparing to do a Thanksgiving outreach. Calvary Chapel Joshua Springs came down this past month and we were blessed to see a family come to know Jesus as their Lord and Savior. Their family has been faithfully attending church and are growing in their faith. Would you pray with us, as we believe God is leading us to start a bible study in Laureles. It is a very poor area, with lots of drugs, suicides, and corruption. We know that Jesus wants to shine the light of His Gospel on this place, we just need His wisdom to lead us!The church body was blessed to hear a special message from Pastor Raul Cervera from Peru, about not getting distracted when God has called you to serve Him. It was a great reminder to stay focused on the calling God has on your life.
The kids are doing well. Homeschooling has begun, so the kids are very busy. Mackenzie and Jamie love to help out in the nursery at church. RJ and Mackenzie are both playing soccer with Calvary Chapel Rosarito’s Youth Group team. Brian continues to practice his guitar skills. After graduating, Jamie is still praying about what her next step will be. We believe God will give her direction in His time. The other kids are working hard and already looking forward to Christmas vacation. We are so thankful for our children, they serve the Lord, they are growing into adults, and although it is a bit scary as parents, we know the Lord is in control.
