BAJA MEXICO MISSION RECAP

Last month we sent a team of 17 people to Casa Del Pastor in San Vicente. Our mission was to complete building improvements, provide medical relief and training to some of the women who currently live there.

Many of the facility rooms were lacking insulation in the roof which left the rooms too cold in winter and too hot in summer. Our team was able to add

framing, insulation and ventilation in amajority of the current facilities as well as build a new sleeping room, a sewing room and a classroom. God provided all the materials and we were able to complete twice as much as expected at half the estimated cost!

A group of gifted volunteers also provided medical care to the children housed there, including physicals and medical treatment to those in need of it.

A sewing class was also taught to the women who currently call Casa Del Pastor home in hopes of helping them not only care for themselves but provide sewing services to others as an income.

It is our hope to continue Gods work in the coming months by sending another team to complete more construction and training.  Please pray about being a part of the ongoing work God is doing at Casa Del Pastor.

Travel and Payment Update

Hello everyone!

It is my hope that all of you are well and enjoying God’s blessing. I want to take a moment to go over some of the details of the trip we are about to take to San Vicente Mexico. Some of you

who put your name on the list have alreadyconfirmed that you are going and have paid your fee, but some of you have not done so. As we are only two weeks away from the trip it is very important that you let me know if you are indeed going with us and that you take care of the $124.00 fee that covers your transportation, meals and lodging. This week we have to confirm how many vehicles we need as well as give the ladies that will be feeding us a head count and a deposit.

We know that some of you are not able to take Friday and Monday off and that may be holding you back. With that in mind, we have a team that will leave with Pastor Bob very early Saturday and come back on Sunday. We believe this should help those of you who have a desire of going but just couldn't get the time off. Once again I want to emphasize how important it is that we hear from you either way. I also want to give an opportunity to those of you who can’t go but would like to help someone else go or maybe would like to help us pay for the materials needed to complete the job. You can do so this Sunday – just put your donation in an envelope and write “Mexico mission materials” or “sponsor”, which ever you prefer, on the envelope.

For those of you already committed to going or if you feel led to go but are not sure, we will have an Orientation Meeting this coming Sunday the 9th of July at 4:00 pm at church. I hope to see you all there. If you have any questions, please call me at (951) 235-9469.
 
Sincerely yours,
