“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

Trujillo’s August 2018 Prayer Letter

Prayer Letter August 2018

The Hemet Valley Baptist Church from Hemet, CA came this July. Their 25 team members came to help for a week at the
seminary (STBC) as well as work with Iglesia de La Hermosa, next to the seminary in Tecate.  The team worked hard on construction and maintenance work, including painting, demolition, ground leveling, pouring concrete, and laying brick for a patio area outside of the seminary kitchen. It was hard work in the hot sun and many of the team had never done this kind of work. Some of the ladies did a sewing class while sewing curtains for the seminary classrooms. They left two machines with La Hermosa Baptist Church for them to use as needed. The team also spent time helping La Hermosa reach out to the community around the church. Special services were planned, visits were made where testimonies were shared, and people were invited to come to the church for a special service each evening. One result from the visits was that a family of six prayed to receive Christ.

Paul and Jean Goodner blessed us the last week of April with Pastor/Leadership training based on the Bible. This was the fifth year of the series and we had thought it would be the last in this series. However, on Friday evening when the class ended nearly everyone in attendance said they had learned so much and asked them to return next year. So, we are planning another week sometime next spring. Always exciting for Lynne and myself when the nationals want more training.

Effective ministry is not only about what you can do, it is also about how well you teach others.  Paul Goodner

Loreto Report – March 2018

Good evening… 

 

It has been another great month here in Loreto, so we want to quickly bring you up to date and mention a couple of prayer requests.

 Attached is our Monthly Report

These are our immediate Prayer Requests

Easter Sunday we will  again be putting on our Easter Sunrise Service…  I has been cold in the mornings here in Loreto, and we hope that will not keep people away.  Also this Saturday night we change to daylight savings time here in Mexico, so it is possible that some people planning to attend, might sleep in and miss coming…  So please pray that many will attend, despite these possible eventualities…  Pray too that our sound equipment will work well…, and that everyone’s hearts will be open to hearing the Gospel.…

In April it is our plan to once again be taking our Health Fairs to the Prison in La Paz. We have heard this past week that there have been additional problems in that prison, and so the Mexican Army has taken over the management and operations of this prison. Pray that the doors will be open for us to hold our Health Fairs there at the end of this month, and that all the volunteers what we will need will be coming, etc., etc.

We trust you will have a Wonderful Easter Weekend…, and thank you again for your prayers and partnering with us in so many ways…  God bless you!  

 Warmly,  

Don & Lorraine

The best part about serving with Mexican Medical, for us, is their approach to caring for the whole body, both the spiritual and physical needs, just like Jesus. We were able to witness this during our latest trip to Mexico. – Steve and Jan Crews

Partners in Ministry,

We had an awesome Thanksgiving both at the local church and at our mission base. Wednesday evening we attended a special Thanksgiving service at the local church followed by a delicious full turkey dinner. Even though Mexico has no “Thanksgiving Day” the local church has a day to reflect on how God has blessed them during the previous year. It truly is amazing to listen to them tell how God has worked in their lives during the past year.

Then on Thanksgiving Day we invited some local pastors and friends to join us for fun afternoon. Lynne prepared a traditional turkey dinner complete with all the trimmings and Angelia brought homemade pumpkin pie which was awesome! This made for an enjoyable and fun afternoon with the last of the guests leaving late in the afternoon.

We have attached our latest newsletter to give you a taste of what is happening in the ministry.   This fall we have had more opportunities to partner with local churches and it was so great to see how each church reached out to their communities. It was awesome to see local churches sharing Jesus and praying with their friends, family, and neighbors. Often our part is that of support and bringing special medical and dental skills which provides special attraction to the community.

We pray you have an wonderful Christmas season with family and friends

Vision is to see people, places and things not just as they are, but the way they could be.

Loreto Weekend Report – November 9-13, 2017

REPORT FOR WEEKENDER TEAM — November 9-13, 2017

As you may have likely heard, we have made a change with regards to our Health Fairs: we will now be focusing only on the Prisons in Santa Rosalia (where we’ve held our outreaches once or twice each year for the past eight years), and in La Paz (where we began ministries last March). This month we were glad to be back in La Paz, and glad to have many people from La Paz who were on our Team six months ago, on our Team again this November.

You will remember us mentioning before how difficult it’d been for years for pastors to have access into the prison to minister to the inmates, yet how wonderful it’d been that the Prison had asked us to come with our Health Fairs. So we had some pastors with us last time, not only to help us with our Health Fairs, but also hoping that as a result the doors would begin to open for them…

Well we were so glad to discover upon arriving this time that Pedro and Rosita, (pastors in La Paz), who were two of those who were with us last time, (and they were with us again this time) – that they had been having Bible Studies every Saturday in the La Paz Prison since our Outreach last Spring – Pedro leading one Bible Study for the men, while Rosita led another Bible Study for the women. We were overjoyed to learn that the doors we were praying about were opening…

We were then very pleased to be introduced to several of the inmates who had made decisions for Christ last Spring when we were there, (who had been attending these Bible Studies), and to learn that they were continuing to grow in their faith and to be strong in the Lord.  How exciting!

As we began each day Don gave everyone on our Team encouragement and instructions from the Word and then we prayed together. The first day it was about exemplifying our transformed lives. On the second day Don encouraged everyone to pray for the inmates, but before doing so, to ask the inmate what they’d like us to pray about for them. This approach opened the hearts of many of the inmates, and discussions followed…, and then many of the inmates (men and women) were being led to Christ. It was amazing; and we could not keep track of the numbers…            …

Dr. Ricardo’s been helping us in our Health Fairs for just over a year, and just a short time ago he was offered a job in this Prison. Now as a result the Health Fairs this weekend the inmates know that their doctor is a Christian and they can go to him almost anytime…

The Lord is definitely doing a work here: the doors are opening, the inmates are responding, follow-up is happening, and your prayers are being answered… Thank you so much again for helping to make all of this happen.
