Mexico Trip Praise May 2015

Posted on May 28 , 2015 in Blog & Ongoing

Hi Everyone!!
Thank you for your prayers we had such a blessed time in Mexico! We totally felt your prayers for protection and being led by the Spirit. It is always humbling and amazing to see how God’s gracious hand works.
On Friday we had a fun time with Al and Rosa Castro and were able to try a new restaurant/cafe for dinner. The restaurant is owned by Al and Rosa’s students. They are an older couple who are enrolled in Al and Rosa’s leadership class because they wanted to get a more solid foundation to their faith! Their young granddaughter and young grandson were immediately drawn to Mika and Iwa and were excited to have some playmates.
On Saturday we met up with Pastor Javier and ministered to the homeless men and a couple of women who were grateful for a hot cup of soup! Two of the men decided that they wanted to go back to the Men’s Rehab shelter. One other man named Omar was not quite ready to make that decision but please be praying for him and the other 2 men who would like to experience God’s healing and recovery! When we returned to Martha’s shelter, there were so many kids waiting for us and they cheered as they saw drive in. They were so excited because they knew it would be a special time for them. Mika, Iwa and Grace helped put on a puppet show which the kids loved!! They had fun time of ministering with the children and were very popular with the kids playing games like Twister and passing out candy prizes! Grace did a wonderful job of helping to translate. It was cool to see how the language of God’s love prevailed and Mike and Iwa were able to minister to the kids. We spent the rest of the day making repairs at the shelter. Before dinner we went to pray for Pastor Javier and his family. His daughter Melissa and his wife Sylvia have health issues so please be praying for them. After our prayer time we were went to tacos at Las Brisas with Martha and her family!

On Sunday, we had the puppet show during service and then Mika, Iwa, and Grace worked with the children again. Martha preached on the need for us as Christians to be praying and interceding for our family, friends, the world, which was cool because the puppet show message was also on prayer. It is amazing how God ties everything together!
The church blessed us with their prayers and their warm hospitality. We are always so touched by their love. They were very happy that Pastor Gene came down with Minori and Mike and Iwa. They were asking for some of you who have come down with us and send their greetings. They hope to see you soon!
There is always so much more to tell so please ask us about our stories. We had a fun time of laughter and fellowship, as well as being humbled by how great our God is!
Thank you for all your prayers and donations. They are always so grateful and we are blessed by the opportunity to be God’s hands and feet! Thank you for being part of this mighty kingdom work!

PS Al and Rosa will be coming to speak at New Life on 6/14 so please join us if you can!
Our next trip is 6/26-6/28
