Mexico Christmas Outreach Saturday, Dec. 8th
We are partnering with a church in Tijuana, Mexico to host a Christmas Outreach on Saturday, Dec 8th. We're collecting Christmas gifts, blankets, & dry goods to bless 300 children & their families in this community. We're also having medical, dental, and reading glass clinics to serve the people. We will also have lots of food, and lots of fun activities for the children! Will you join us?

Safety Note: We are in close communication with our partners in Mexico and they have assured that it is safe to cross the border and back into the U.S. during this time. Pastor Carlos will being going down a couple days before the outreach to insure that there aren't any issues.

If you can't make it but would like to send Christmas gifts with us for the outreach, check out our Amazon Christmas WishList (it will send automatically to our donation intake for the outreach).

Mexico Orphanage Trip Saturday, Sept 29th
We returned to bless the beautiful children of Orfanatorio Emmanuel. It was one of the best times we've had there! The children are getting to know some that have been before and have developed new friendships as well. Here's what we did:

  • The children were blessed with a wonderful story time by Rosario Franco.
  • Dr. Eric (pediatrician that was with us) gave every child check-up. He reported that it was really nice to see that they all doing well and are getting good care.
  • Lots of fun crafts, yard activities, and games. 
  • A delicious lunch... hamburgers that were bigger than some of their heads. Plus, amazing street tacos! 
  • We thoroughly cleaned all the children's rooms, restrooms, hallways, and stairwells. 
  • We thoroughly cleaned their kitchen!
  • We painted their back stairwell.
  • We hung curtain rods in all the children's rooms.
  • We fixed several doors and door jams. 
  • A drywall crew went back down to patch holds, work on several of their ceilings and door jams. 
  • Trips fees also provided the funds to do some badly needed roofing. 
Here's a VIDEO from this trip as well as some PICTURES.

Malawi Discipleship Training Oct 21st-Nov 2nd, 2018
Pastor Carlos & Dr. Mark Williams have returned from our latest trip to Malawi. Here's what they did during this trip (from the words of Pastor Mark):
  • We trained over 100 in Discipleship Journeys with Jesus and how to use the materials (which are now in Chichewa language).
  • We trained all of these in "House Church Planting" for 2 days. This was in partnership with Dynamic Church Planting International (DCPI).
  • We certified 23 Certified Trainers for the House Church Planting materials. (These can now train others in House Church Planting.
  • We installed one water well in a village and repaired one in another village. I had the privilege of sharing the Gospel at the dedication and about 50 prayed to receive salvation.
  • We showed the Jesus Film to a village and close to 300 people made decisions to accept Christ.
  • We spoke at a fundraising church service to raise funds for a building for a new church plant (3 hours outside partially shaded under trees.
  • We spoke to about 58 village chiefs to introduce DJJ (another outdoor meeting under trees for about 1.5 hours). Handed out 10 talking Bibles.
  • We visited a mission station pioneered by the famous Scottish Missionary David Livingstone.
