Family Update
Grace (22) 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. Gracie turns 23 this Friday!  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!

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.

7 Summits here we come! By Lisa Sales

Lisa is on her way up!
After months of training, I am so excited to fly to Denver in the morning and begin this trek!  From the moment I signed up I knew this would be hard, I just didn't realize how hard.  We begin Monday with one of the most difficult climbs.... We will tackle Mt. Democrat(14,148 ft.), Mt. Lincoln(14,286 ft.) and Mt. Brass(14,172 ft.). 

I am climbing to give exploited and enslaved women and children a voice.  I am committed to engage in this battle; to use my physical strength, my voice, my resources, and  my influence to do what I can to give hope and freedom to these modern day slaves.  I know I will need your prayers.  I know the entire team will need your prayers. 
  • Please pray for safety, for unity, for stamina, for health and for joy!
  • Please pray that our efforts will be multiplied, that we will bring awareness to the issue and that the resources we've raised will save and transform thousands of lives!
  • Please pray that this will be the beginning of the end of human trafficking!!!
Track our progress by going to:http://thefreedomclimb.wordpress.com .  This blog will be updated daily.
