Family Update
Grace (23) is leaving for the Philippines in January for 2 1/2 years.  She'll be serving in a medical clinic as a midwife.  If she hasn't had a chance to tell you about it, it's because she just returned from Nicaragua where the Lord confirmed her call to serve the poor overseas. Read about her call to become a midwife... HERE

Alison (21) just finished finals and returned yesterday from William Jessup University near Sacramento. She is in her last year of her Literature degree with a minor in Bible.  She's planning to pursue further education. 

Olivia (20) enjoyed a semester of Bible school in England and is currently immersed in a full-time ministry internship at our church. In the fall she'll transfer to Life Pacific Bible College to complete her degree in ministry. 

Chase (16) is at Vista High School and loving it. He is also playing in the city basketball league.  He loves sports and art. He has been growing a mustache this year! ;-) 

My Mum, Zina (86) has come to live with us.  She is doing well physically, but has started losing her short term memory.  My father passed away 16-years ago.

Lisa (53) is still tutoring students and keeping our "Reaching the Hungry" books. She's been hiking a lot this year and loves it! She did the Freedom Climb this summer to raise money awareness to combat human trafficking by hiking 7 of the 14-teeners in Colorado in 4-days.

Carlos (54) is still running our 501(c)3 Reaching the Hungry ministry.   He led mission's teams to Nicaragua twice, Malawi twice, India once, and Mexico about 8 times all this year!  Plus, he officiates lots of weddings to help the girls with their college fees.  

We are all looking forward to 2015!

Nicaragua Mission's Trip - Nov. 2 - 13, 2014 -- By Samuel Roberto

RtH Team to Nicaragua
I am so blessed and thankful that I was able to go on my first mission trip to Nicaragua with “Reaching the Hungry”.  In the past couple of years, I have been praying and asking God to allow me an opportunity to serve Him on the mission field. On November 2nd of 2014 I headed off on my first trip to Nicaragua, Central America. I was so excited, anxious, and had high expectations. In the two weeks that I was there, God blessed me with more than I could imagine. I had a much closer relationship with Him while I was down there and am still continuing to grow closer with God daily. My experience in Nicaragua really opened up my eyes and heart to see why being directly on the mission field can be a really important ministry.

Some of the team installing 5,000 liter water tank.

While in Nicaragua, I was able to see the ministry that Jaime and Monica were called to do in Campo Gonia. We were able to clear paths by chopping down grass with machetes. We also built a new barbed wire fence made from trees we chopped down to provide more security for the ranch. The whole team and other locals were able to build a brick house for a 5000 gallon water tank which will be used for the ranch to provide more water to the people living there. In doing all this work we were able to build strong relationships with the people of Nicaragua, and also encourage Jaime and Monica in the ministry God has called them to do.

Besides the physical labor, we were blessed to get to know the local people by partnering with a few local ministries. One of the blessings was visiting inmates in prison. We divided into smaller teams and spent about 2 hours sharing and listening to those who were incarcerated. One of our team members got to share with hundreds on lock-down. He shared how he turned his life over to Christ in the Vista Jail and how God delivered him from 20-years of meth use.  After we left prison, we went to serve the homeless by putting on a worship service for them, then we served all that attended a hot lunch.

There are so many people in this world who need to hear the living truth of our Lord and Savior. During one of our Jesus film outreaches in Nicaragua, I had the opportunity to speak the truth of how the Lord has changed my life and why it’s important to have Him in our lives as our Lord and savior. I was so touched to see how many people in Nicaragua came to know Christ and accept Him into their lives, especially all the little children. It really stirred me inside and I want to continue to do missions and share the word of God no matter where I’m at in the world. The people in Nicaragua are awesome and very friendly, and I couldn't have asked for a better first experience in missions.

Malawi Mission's Trip - Oct 13-24, 2014

God is amazing and I'm truly blessed to have the privilege to serve Him!

Our Malawi Mission's Trip was incredible!  God went way beyond what I expected.

Here are just a few of our highlights...

We showed the Jesus Film 4 times to about 5,000 people. Many accepted Christ as their Savior. Many Bible study groups will be started to disciple these new family members. ;-)

​Our team installed 3 new water wells bringing not just the Living Water to these thirsty people, but life saving clean water to sustain their physical lives! One chief estimated 1,500 families would use the well we installed. No wells to be found for miles.




With God's divine grace and courage He provided an opportunity for me to share John chapter 3, the story of Nicodemus, with 25 Group Village Heads (chiefs of chiefs). Many received Jesus' challenge to Nicodemus personally. New relationships and doors were opened.
