Greetings from Mexico,
We hope that you and yours had a wonderful Thanksgiving! As we approach the end of the year, this is a wonderful time to reflect back on God’s faithfulness and blessing. In this final update of 2018, I want to give thanks with you and for you as God allowed us to partner together to do some great things here on the mission field of Mexico this year!
#1- We witnessed over 400 first time professions of faith this past year during our main church services.
#2- Our daughter Grace graduated from high school and enrolled in college courses at Southwest Community College in San Diego!
#3- Mike and Sarah were able to travel to Southern Mexico to take advanced Spanish language Courses!
#4- We were able to plant three new churches in 2018. (In Monterrey and Tecolote Mexico, and Valley Center Ca.)
#5- Our son Daniel went on two missions trips and committed to serving at the church 6 days/nights per week!
#6- Our church welcomed over 1000 first time local adult guests to our weekend church services!
#7- Nearly 200 new believers publically exhibited their faith in Jesus Christ through the waters of baptism.
#8- Sarah continued working part-time teaching Spanish to stateside homeschoolers one day a week up in Southern California! (And continues to teach our last homeschooler at home as well)
#9- We had three of our church plants plant churches themselves! (Our 3 new granddaughter churches are Escuinapa, Todos Santos, and South Culiacan)
#10- Our church was able to reach the least of these in our community, local orphanages, and those living in the city dump through mercy and medical ministries!
We want to thank you for partnering with our family this past year. 2018 was our most blessed and fruitful year ever, and we look forward to partnering together in 2019 and asking God to do even greater things! May God bless you with a Jesus filled Christmas and a very happy New Year!
Con mucho amor de Mexico, (with much love from Mexico)
Mike, Sarah, Grace, and Daniel
