What Am I Passionate About?

It’s crazy to believe it’s been about a month since I last wrote. A lot has happened since I wrote last time. There have been ups and downs, events, and fun things to share. I’m excited to share some things God has done in the past month.

Divine Appointments

During my time at the Missions Training School (MTS), I have talked to a lot of people during work and classes and outreaches. One of the most notable ones happened recently at a college campus outreach. At the beginning of our time at Cal State Fullerton, I noticed a girl was standing by some table materials. She was one of the only people in sight who wasn’t looking preoccupied with school or her phone so I walked up to her. I began as usual asking her what she thought about the afterlife. At first, she was a little stunned but responded and we talked about heaven and hell which she believed in. Like most people I meet she was quick to say the way you get to heaven is through good works. During our time talking, I noticed she had a strangely familiar accent. At one point it all clicked when she told me she was Jewish. For those who know me well enough, I’m not a very animated person most of the time but I was thrilled. It was such an open door because I have lived in Israel. I started to share about how Jesus is the promised Messiah. Then she brought up the question skeptically. What does the church think about Israel? This was another awesome opportunity to share that God is faithful to keeping His promises to the nation Israel and not only that but since He’s faithful to His people Israel, He’s faithful to save all those who call out to Him. It was an amazing moment. Yet also looking back at it, it was a sad moment. Here is a Jew who is one of God’s chosen people and all she knows about Jesus is how His followers have been abandoning Israel. Despite all that she heard the full gospel and hopefully, we can stay in contact as she plans on teaching a class on Hebrew which I want to attend. Please keep her in your prayers and pray for more opportunities to share with her.


One of the core parts of the Missions Training School is our preaching class. While it’s certainly not easy it is one of the highlights of my week. During my time here I have taught through 2 books, Philippians and Jonah. At MTS each student is required to teach an allotted amount of scripture every week. For example this week all first-year MTS students will be teaching 1 Timothy Chapter 1:12-20. So during the week we are tasked with properly exegeting a passage or drawing out from the text what is already there. Like any Calvary Chapel, we learn to teach verse by verse through the whole book. Once we have prepared a sermon with an accompanying PowerPoint and handout, then we preach in front of the pastoral staff and our peers. Through this, I have learned so much about properly breaking down a text and learning to share from it. Not only that but I’ve watched the things I’m teaching being applied in my own life.

What’s Next?

One of the things I love about the Missions Training School is that there are opportunities to go to unreached countries all around us. Our church is constantly sending out missionaries. As I seek the Lord for what He has next for me, I’m praying about going on various Vision Tours. If you’re not familiar with what a vision tour is neither was I until I got here. A vision tour is simply a trip to another country where we get to go and seek the Lord in said country to see the works already going on and to wait and see what the Lord would want to do. Thankfully there is one coming up in the fall which I plan to go to. Please pray the Lord would show me where He wants me as I plan on going.

Put In The Work Put In The Hours

Hello friends and family! It’s been a little over a month since I last wrote and a lot has happened. When I last wrote I had just arrived in Yorba Linda California for a missions training program. (We’ll call it MTS from now on.) Without further adieu let’s get into it.

An Inner Burning

In my last newsletter, I talked about how I spent 3 months in Israel. During that time in Israel, I had an urge to reach the Israeli people, yet I had such a hard time when it came to sharing the gospel because of the cultural and language barriers. Though Israel is very Westernized compared to the rest of the Middle East, it still is very culturally different. Not only that but though many Israelis speak English, it isn’t their first language often. Understandably, since I don’t speak Hebrew, and am not an Israeli it was difficult to share the gospel effectively. All this to say that when I got back to the U.S. I was eager to share the gospel in my native language and a culture I understand. During the first month of the MTS program, I decided one Thursday that I would join Pastor Nick (one of the pastors at Calvary Chapel Saving Grace) in his Cal State Fullerton outreach. When we arrived I spent hours sharing the gospel with college students. It was very exciting meeting people of all different backgrounds. Through a long set of divine appointments and stories for another time I met a girl we’ll call Jessica and a guy named we’ll call Kyle. Kyle had been a believer when I met him he was a believer for 2 years and was hungry to grow in the Lord and evangelism as well. Since meeting him he has joined me 2 times to go evangelizing! Jessica is not a believer but is seeking after the Lord. A couple of MTS students and I spent a few hours with her and at the end of our conversation she told us she wanted to learn more about God and has been faithfully attending to Young adults and Sundays and best of all 2 of our MTS ladies are pouring into her. All this is to say that the Lord is working amongst the young people.

What Else is Happening at the Missions Training Program?

So what else am I doing in the MTS program? Well, I’m glad you asked. The program consists of classes such as a preaching class, missions class, discipleship classes, and various others. In our preaching class, I am learning how to handle God’s word to instruct others. I am really learning to love the word and how it really comes to life when you teach it. It seems that every week of teaching through Philippians, God gives me opportunities to apply what I’m studying at work. The week I was studying Philippians 4:4, I had a rough day at work. It was during my shift that I knew I needed to rejoice in the Lord always even when things weren’t good and so I did. All that to say God is growing and shaping me throughout the process.

Prayer Requests/ Praise reports

  • Please join me in praying for my coworkers for their salvation and that God would open a door for me to share the gospel with them
    • Please pray for the Cal State Fullerton campus outreach that the Lord would open up the door for us to establish a good bible teaching club on campus

Surprised to Hear From Me? So Am I…

It’s been quite some time since I last wrote and I have plenty of exciting news. In the past 4 months, much has happened and I will briefly sum it all up so you don’t have to read pages upon pages of information. Let’s get right into the reports.

What Happened after Mexico?

In the last newsletter, I wrote I was in Mexico. About a week later I was on my way to Israel. I would spend the next 3 months in Israel with Study Tour Israel or Calvary Bible Institute Israel (CBI). I was able to connect with a small Jewish Russian congregation in the Golan Heights. During the first half of the trip, we were able to tour lots of the Southern parts of Israel and got to explore all the various biblical sites and experience Jewish culture, as well as daily life in Israel. About a month and a half into my stay in Israel, on October 7th, tragedy struck. Around 1,500 people were butchered in their homes and over 200 men, women were taken captive by Hamas terrorists. Our hearts were broken when we heard the news. Soon after, war broke out and the Lord shifted the direction of our time in Israel. Sadly, the majority of the group was either called home or chose to leave due to safety concerns. I along with the director of CBI Israel and his wife (Spencer and Kylie) and the pastors of the Jewish Russian congregation (Steve and Misha) began to aid another local congregation prepare meals for Israeli soldiers. This group soon began to cook home-cooked curry for the soldiers stationed all over the Golan Heights. It was through this experience that the Lord taught me so many things, I wish I could tell you it all, but for time’s sake, I will keep it brief. One of the most important lessons I learned was truly how great the need there is for people to lay down their lives so that others may come to know Jesus. During my time in Israel, I met a girl on a bus to Jerusalem (and no this isn’t some Hallmark love story) we talked for about 2 hours and I got to share with her about Jesus. We had a long conversation about Jesus and why I believe he is the Messiah. Not only that, but I got to share with her how God has personally transformed me. During this time she told me she lived on a Kibbutz or a farm town of about 100 people. The next day, it dawned on me that I am most likely the only Christian she will ever meet in her whole life. Israel is not like America where there are churches on every corner where she can hear the gospel or be discipled. The point of that story is that the need is so great for people to go to these places where the Gospel isn’t so people can come to know Jesus.

What Now?

Since coming home from Israel I believe God is leading me to the mission field, where the need is so great. I recently began the first step of the process which is to wait. However, this isn’t a passive waiting but an active waiting upon the Lord. About 3 weeks ago I joined the Missions Training Program at Calvary Chapel Saving Grace in Yorba Linda California. This program is designed to disciple those who may sense a calling to the mission field but don’t know how to get equipped. During the time I will be here, I am attending classes and serving at the church to prepare myself for the mission field. It has been quite an adjustment but God works all things out for the good of those who love him and are called according to his purpose and I am learning to trust that promise.

Prayer Requests / Praise Reports

  • Join me in praying for the peace of Israel and the equipping of the saints for the spreading of the gospel which brings true peace
  • Lift up Steve and Misha for protection and opportunities to share as they are still ministering in Israel
  • Pray for me as I begin working a secular job again that I might have opportunities to share about Jesus
  • Pray that God will transform me throughout the process of this program
  • Praise God that He has provided a place to stay and a job
  • Praise God has been faithful to provide for me financially
  • Praise God that He is already working on my heart and will continue his work

I would like to thank all of you who prayed for me during my time in Israel, I truly believe that if it were not for your prayers and for all of those who reached out I would have lost hope. So, thank you again for all the support. If you have any questions regarding anything please, feel free to contact me. Until next time, God bless you.

Yes. Another Newsletter. You’re welcome…

I know you’re probably wondering why am I getting another newsletter in the same week. What could possibly be so pressing that this guy is writing me twice? We have been to a lot of classes this week that have taught me a lot. This week I’ve learned a lot about culture and how it affects how we as a people group act. We often don’t think about our cultural values until we find ourselves in a different cultural context. One of the things that greatly affects the culture is the beliefs of that culture. The beliefs of culture greatly affect the actions of a culture, for example, in India they believe that cows are gods, and because of this belief they treat cows better than humans. Our teacher was telling us that one time he saw this family come out of their house to offer a cow bowls of rice and because of this belief they passed by children on the brink of death due to starvation. Our teacher told us many other stories to demonstrate how beliefs affect action. Not only do these beliefs affect action, but affect how we share the gospel. For example, when you share the gospel with a Hindu you have to stress the importance of Jesus being the only God. Otherwise, the Hindus will just add Jesus to the list of their millions of “gods”. These cultural differences radically affect how we minister and share the gospel, especially the further away from America we get. This allowed me to appreciate raising up locals even more since they know the culture so well.

!Vamos Iglesia!

The main reason this newsletter is coming out so early is that next week, we will be leaving for Culiacan. We will be going to a tribe that has recently been reached. We will be partnering with a church in Mazatlan to do a 3-day outreach to the Kuare tribe. The cool part of this outreach is we will be a part of the first church service for the Kuare tribe. I have no idea what to expect other than it will be some good mission experience. I’m definitely excited to see what the Lord will teach me while we’re up there. Another reason I’m writing this so early is that we will be attending the Church Planting Conference in Rosarito. This event will be happening Friday and Saturday. I’m excited to see what I will learn from the pastors teaching at the conference.

Prayer Requests

There are definitely lots of upcoming events this week and lots of necessity for prayer. It would be very appreciated if you would be praying, especially this week. Thank you again for all your prayers and if there is any way I could be praying for you send me a message and I would love to partner with you in prayer. These are some of the prayer requests for this week.

  • Pray for the Kuare Tribe
  • Pray for safe travels to Culican and to Mazaltan
  • Pray for safe travels to the Kuare tribe
  • Pray for the Unreached People Groups around the world

Thank you again for all your support. The next time I write, we will be back in Rosarito. If you would like to support me financially, there will be a link below. If you have a prayer request or praise report email me as I would love to pray for it. God bless you.

Learing Some Hard Lessons

Every week has been busy but especially this week. Not only did we have classes and outreaches but this week I got to teach twice and play piano for worship. Let’s just say I was pretty busy. During the first few days of the week, I wasn’t too stressed about making time but as the week went on and the responsibilities and opportunities piled on, I began to stress out. I remember praying and just telling the Lord how stressed I was about having enough time to practice for the worship set and study Daniel chapter 3 for the kids. I must admit I was overwhelmed but I remember reading in Strategies of Satan (our assigned book this week) how the enemy attacks your mind in this way. The enemy loves to get you to doubt the goodness of God. I simply trusted that the Lord would provide enough time for me to be a good steward of my responsibilities. As the week went on the Lord was faithful to give me time to practice the set list, study for the kid’s message, finish my books, and even call my friend and my parents. This small victory was a good reminder that God is faithful to provide in the small things as well as the big things. Just like the Lord can protect Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego from the fiery furnace how much more can He provide for the little things?

Playing Piano for Worship

This week I had the opportunity to play piano twice. The first opportunity was a disaster. I came underequipped and unprepared. In case you don’t know me well, I play alto sax sometimes for worship and often I just wing it and figure out songs by ear. I didn’t bring my alto sax to Mexico and I was asked to play piano, which I’ve been learning for about 3 months. I said sure and had the alto sax mindset going into it. If you ever play worship, I would not recommend winging it. I forgot to account for technical difficulties, a language barrier between musicians, and unfamiliar music! However, this disaster was how I learned that I need to practice and be diligent to practice with English speakers beforehand. When I practiced and changed my approach I was able to play with confidence, knowing the songs. I’m definitely no Mozart, but I’m not as bad as I was in the beginning. You never know, next time I write I could be soloing on the keys.

Learning to be a Servant

I have learned a lot throughout these few weeks but one of the Most Important Points (M.I.P) of this week was definitely the importance of being a servant. One of the pastors was teaching about why missionaries leave the field and the biggest reason was because of disunity. Sadly, the reason many leave the field is because of divisions over small things. The enemy loves to use small things to set well-meaning missionaries against each other. When these issues are not dealt with or dealt with carelessly they can build up and lead to division and arguing. These small trifles can lead to damage to the witness of the missionaries and even unforgiveness between brothers and sisters in Christ. This is where the importance of being a servant becomes so important. It takes humility to be a servant. This humility removes the potential for competition or jealousy, and better yet, it creates unity and love. Imagine if everyone had this attitude to put others before themselves in everything. The love and unity of that group would be astronomical. That is exactly why being a servant is so important, especially on the mission field. As a Christian, you are an ambassador, and as an ambassador you represent a country or in this case, Jesus. Therefore, how important is it to represent Jesus well to those who don’t know Him? The way we live shows so much more about us than our words. So when we divide over small issues or argue what are we saying about Jesus? This is so vital for us as Christians but especially for missionaries serving amongst the Unreached People Groups who have no access to other Christians or churches or even Bibles.

Becoming a Balloon Animal Artisan For Jesus

These past few weeks have flown by and I’ve had a lot of time to learn this week. Our week started out with the Purpose of the Church and writing newsletters. Writing my Newsletter was a blast, I had a lot of fun putting jokes in it and yet put a lot of thought into stirring up the body of Christ for good works. After writing an absolutely brilliant newsletter (opinions may vary), the whole team got ready for the outreach with Calvary Chapel Home X. It took us about an hour to set up and then the families flooded in. I then got to making balloon animals and boy those kids wanted those balloon animals. Left and right I was making balloon animals with my trusty assistant Jacob. The kids started to get crazy with their orders and it was difficult to know what they wanted without a translator and my approximately 11 words of Spanglish. Let’s just say I got a lot of blank stares. But apart from the confusion it was again such a pleasure to love on those kids and see their adorable smiles when they got what they wanted. But the kids didn’t just leave with balloon animals, they got to hear the story of Noah and the Ark taught by me. Not that my teaching was anything special or rivaled David Guzik or Spurgeon, it was such a joy to teach the kids about how God saved Noah and gave him a promise to never flood the Earth again and how God has a plan to save us through faith in Him. Not only did they learn about how God has a plan to save us, but by what means He plans to accomplish that. Just like God delivered Noah by means of the Ark, God delivers us by means of Jesus’s death on the cross. Just like God made Noah a promise to never flood the Earth again, God makes us a promise that if we believe in Him He will save us (John 3:16). After the time of teaching the kids did some crafts and ended the outreach after we ate nachos.

Class Time

During this week I had the pleasure of listening to many workers in the 10/40 window. Unfortunately, due to the sensitive countries they work in I cannot share names. Nonetheless, God used one of the pastors to remind me of how you and I need grace. This was so refreshing at a time in which I was beaten down by condemnation. It seemed as though everything I did or thought, the enemy used as ammunition to condemn me. This weighed me down for days and days until the pastor began to go off about grace. This may have seemed like a tangent during a class about ministering to Muslims but the Lord used it to minister to me. Not only was my soul refreshed but also challenged to grow in establishing good spiritual disciplines. The pastor called this tool R.P.G and no not a rocket launcher, it stands for Real Plan for Growth. It’s a simple tool for establishing practical disciplines for spiritual growth. I encourage you to look at it and see what the Lord challenges you to grow in. Not only did the pastor teach us how to grow in spiritual disciplines but taught us about our sin nature and how the new nature that Christ has given us is at war with the old nature of sin. The pastor taught me that in Christ we are new creations and therefore we have a new nature however, there still remains the old nature. This is where the conflict comes in. Often times our sin nature will act up and give us sinful thoughts that make us feel terrible. The pastor taught me that because I am a new creation in Christ these thoughts are not from me but from the un-redeemed un-regenerate side of me that all believers have. These thoughts can often be used by the enemy to make us believe we aren’t saved or condemn us. With this information the pastor taught us that the way to combat this is to remember the truth about ourselves as well as surrender these thoughts to the Lord and recognize that the enemy will use it to condemn us but to remember that there is no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.

Real Plan for Growth (R.P.G)


One thing that you and I need is prayer and lots of it. I appreciate all your prayers and would love to partner with you in prayer. If you feel led please share with me some of your prayer requests so I can know how to pray for you as well. With all that said these are some of the ways you can be praying for me and the people around me.

  • Pray for the CSOM team for healing of a stomach bug that’s going around
  • Pray for the outreaches this week
  • Pray for me that the Lord would give me the words to speak at the next outreach
  • Pray for blessings for the Connections house who have blessed us with a lovely place to stay
  • Pray for the teaching of the Word in the 10/40 window
  • Pray that the Lord would raise up people from Mexico and the U.S to go to the 10/40 window
  • Pray for the missionaries who are working in the 10/40 window

Thank you all again for your support and prayers. If this newsletter encourages you then please do reach out, as I love receiving praise reports. If you would like to partner with me financially, there will be a link below you can use to give. God bless you all.

Crazy Week of Outreach

Last week was crazy! There were so many things happening! On top of all our classes and meetings, we got to do 3 outreaches. On Tuesday we went to a dump to minister with Calvary Chapel Home X. It was a humbling experience to see the conditions that people live in, yet a good reminder that Christ is our true riches. The next outreach we did was with Calvary Chapel Rosarito in a small park. I was tasked with making balloon animals for the kids. After many failed attempts I made a simple dog. It wasn’t anything fancy or good but it still brought a smile to a little girl so I would say it accomplished its task. At the end of the park outreach, I had the opportunity to pray for a group of younger guys who my friend Marcelo had shared the gospel with. Then, on Saturday we had our last and longest outreach of the week. We arrived at 2:00 at Calvary Chapel La Gloria where we canvased the area around the church inviting people to the outreach. Despite my Spanish vocabulary amounting to about 10 words, I was able to invite plenty of people. Then we came back to the Church and I got to making balloon animals again. After a while, we had a decent crowd of about 50 kids and adults. At this point, we split the kids and adults into two separate groups. The kids went absolutely ballistic during their time of worship. Then they got to see Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego in the fiery furnace. Once the adults had heard the gospel, we all gathered to eat some BBQ and watch the Jesus Revolution. Overall, the outreaches were such good learning experiences for all of the students.

What I’ve Been Learning.

During the first week, I learned a lot through the devotionals, teachings, and services. One of the things that struck me during the classes was the purpose of why we gather as a church. It was a bit of a moment of epiphany for me. During the Purpose of the Church class, when studying the Great Commission passages (Matt 28:18, Mark 16:15, Luke 24:46, John 20:21-23 Acts 1:8) I realized the reason why we as Christians gather is to be equipped to evangelize and make disciples of all nations and the reason we study the word and pray together is simply to use for the purpose of making disciples of all nations. A simple way to think of it is the church is like the training grounds and beyond the church is where we all do our part to fulfill the Great Commission. This truth has really been firing me up to reach the unreached people groups of the world. We learned in class that there are about 3 billion people that have no access to the gospel. The relationship we have with Christ they have no access to. This was a difficult thing to hear because it feels so hopeless. But praise God that isn’t the end of the story. God has a plan to reach those who don’t know Him and it’s through people like you and I. Admittedly there is a lot of work to be done but with God all things are possible. I’m excited to see how God will use me and you in this plan and can’t wait to learn more.

How Can You Help?

Pray. Throughout the course of the school, we have learned the importance of prayer and I would love to invite you to join me in this way. Here are some things you can be praying for.

  • Pray for the students and staff of Calvary School of Missions (CSOM)
  • Pray for the 3 billion unreached people that the Lord would send people to reach them
  • Pray for the classes (that the information would be remembered and received)
  • Pray for the park Outreach with Home Ex on Tuesday
  • Pray for some good rest
  • Pray for me that I would get opportunities to share the gospel
  • Pray the Lord would reveal where He is calling me
  • Prayerfully consider if the Lord would call you

Thank you all for your prayers and support I appreciate them all. If the Lord has encouraged or blessed you by reading this please feel free to reach out to me and share what the Lord has encouraged you in.

We Made It To Mexico!

Calvary School of Missions 2023

Dear Friends and Family in Christ,

This is my first newsletter from Mexico! We left Calvary Chapel Saving Grace after the second service and arrived in Mexico around noon. From there we applied for our Visas and drove down to Rosarito where we are staying in the Connections House. We then had a time of prayer and worship, where we surrendered our plans for our lives and made ourselves available to the Lord. At the time when I am writing this, we have had our first day of classes with Pastor Trent Douglass. We learned about the call of Jesus to follow Him wherever He goes. After that class, we had some good refried beans, rice, and chicken for lunch, then enjoyed a time of fellowship with one another. Afterward, we had another class talking about building support and why it is a necessity for mission work. These two classes have taught me a lot about the complexity and simplicity of biblical missions. I’m super excited to see what the Lord will do with the remaining 6 weeks of Calvary School of Missions.

Pastor Trent’s class

Areas of Prayer?

As I embark on this 6-week journey with Calvary School of Missions, I expect it will be difficult physically, mentally, and spiritually. As we go out to do outreach, I expect there will be attacks from the enemy toward me and the people around me. I ask that you partner with me in prayer for these 6 weeks for the people we will be ministering to via outreach and in the various churches, as well as for me and the other students and faculty. I ask that you partner with me in prayer as we go out to minister and are ministered to. Thank you all for all your prayers and support. I appreciate it all. If you would like to partner with me financially, there will be a link at the bottom of this post. Thank you.

A Time of Preparation

During my time at Calvary Bible Institute (CBI), the Lord has stirred my heart for missions. Though it was the last thing I desired to do coming into CBI, the Lord has begun to work in my heart for the lost and unreached. It was through the Purpose of the Church class taught by Trent Douglas that the Lord began to stir my heart for the Unreached. After leaving that class there was a burning desire to see the Gospel impact the lives of the unreached. However, the question remains where does the Lord desire me to go?

The question seems daunting but I am reminded of the Lord’s faithfulness over and over again to reveal His will to me. This reminder comforts me and encourages me to prepare myself for the time ahead. I believe my time at the School of Missions, which is a 6-week program in Mexico which will prepare me for what the Lord is calling me to do as we study the book of Acts and learn about biblical missions. As I continue to seek Him and let Him do His work in me I trust He will reveal where He wants me to go. So what has the Lord been doing?

As I look ahead to the upcoming month I see an open door to spending time reaching out to my community. At the moment all I can do is think up ideas of ways to reach my community with the Gospel. I pray that the Lord would open up the doors for me and a couple of other young adults to do ministry out in the public parks. One idea that I’m praying about is having a free barbeque and live music with a gospel message to reach my community. Prayerfully, the Lord will provide all that is needed to do this outreach and more.

How can you help?

During this time of preparation, I could use prayer for many things. First, please pray for the Lord to continue to protect me from the attacks of the enemy. You can also be praying for the Lord to provide people to aid in this outreach and for the Lord to protect them. Lastly, pray that the Lord would reveal His will for my life and that He would strengthen me to do His will.

Thank you so much for all your prayers and support. I really do appreciate you taking the time to pray for me and the ministries the Lord has given me.
