“The Mountains Will Move” – June 2019

June 2019 Newsletter

Dear Friends,

We pray you are well!  We hope you had a nice Father’s Day weekend!  Our Sunday was full!  I had a chance to lead worship with the band (which was totally outside of my comfort zone without Buky by my side) and Buky preached a message about the love of our Heavenly Father.  We finished off the afternoon eating fish tacos with Buky’s family.  It was a blessed day!

Please be praying for my brother-in-law, Pastor Jr.  He is serving in Cuba this week with a group from Mexican Medical led by Amy Fuller.

We hope you enjoy the attached newsletter that goes into more detail about the spring teams and ministry at La Esperanza.  We continue to make preparations for our summer teams that will be arriving in July.

Thanks so much for your interest in our ministry!

God bless you!

Theresa, Buky, and Elena

Hello Friends,

Thank you so much for your interest in our ministry at Clínica La Esperanza!  Thank you for partnering with us through friendship, prayers, serving with us and/or financial gifts.  God has been doing great things at La Esperanza!  We spent March and April there and served with two caravan teams.  We are at the Mexican Medical office in Lemon Grove (San Diego County) for three weeks and will be heading back to Mexico at the end of the month to serve with more teams.  Keep praying because God is answering!  Thank you for your encouragement!  We hope you are blessed by reading about all that God is doing in our May newsletter!

God bless you!

Theresa, Buky, and Elena

Hello Friends,

We are excited to be able to share this update with you about the summer ministry at La Esperanza.  There will be more updates about the summer coming this fall because there are so many more stories to tell!  God was working in so many ways at La Esperanza this summer!  Praise God!

We are about to embark on our trip to Idaho and Montana.  We are so grateful that this is possible!  On August 29th, we celebrated a year since Buky received his approval for his green card in Juarez!  God is good!  We look forward to seeing many friends who have served at La Esperanza in years past.

Thank you so much for your investment in our ministry – through prayer, donations, by coming to serve!  We are so blessed to have so many friends and family that lift us up in prayer.  We couldn’t do this without you!

God bless,

Theresa, Buky, and Elena

Summer update from Buky & Theresa

Hello Friends,

 It’s hard to believe that we are just about to begin another ministry week with our last team of the summer!  This will be our 4th week of VBS in a row.  This last week, although we didn’t have a team, we held VBS for the children in our village.  I have included a picture where I was delighted to get to be a group leader during craft time!

 We would appreciate your prayers that God would touch children’s hearts at VBS this week in Camp Vergel.  This will be our biggest VBS of the summer with somewhere between 250-400 migrant camp children participating.  Fortunately, we have a team of 55 from Sacramento, CA, that will help us be the hands and feet of Jesus to these children.  The children’s parents spend the day picking tomatoes and cucumbers and don’t have a lot of time to spend with them.   On Thursday, we will get to share the Gospel with the children in small groups during our health fair.  This is always a precious time.   We are so blessed to love on these children and share the good news of Jesus with them. 

We will go into Camp Vergel two nights this week to show a Christian film, share the Gospel, pray and give out Bibles.  We are amazed at how many adults have been coming forward to give their lives to Christ this summer!  It feels like the harvest is ripe with the fruit ready to fall off the vine into our hands.  We pray that we would continue to see more people saying, “Yes!” to Jesus this week.

Thank you so much for your prayers!

God bless you!

Theresa, Buky, and Elena
