Greetings from Mexico!  We are having a wonderful summer and so excited to see how God is continuing to change lives.  A few days ago we were talking to one of our Angels and they were telling us how exciting it has been learning about God and the Bible as they are attending Bible School.  We love to hear how God is using the youth we have been working with in ministry.

Attached is our latest newsletter to assist you in knowing what is happening in San Vicente and beyond.

May God richly bless you

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

Lynne and I are so grateful for each of you and your continued faithfulness to encourage, pray and support us.  Without you we could not be serving in San Vicente, Mexico and beyond.  Thank you.

This winter we have had several storms which have provided us with some much needed rain.  This past year the area was so short of water that many of the farms did not plant nearly all their acreage, so there was not a lot of work this past year.  Hopefully this rain will allow the farmer to plant more crops which will give people work next summer.

Attached is our latest newsletter to assist you as you pray for us and follow how God is working in the lives of people in San Vicente and beyond.

We hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving with family and friends.  Fifteen of the last sixteen Thanksgivings have been spent in Mexico and it has been so much fun to see how the local church celebrates this special day.  We have loved the opportunity to attend their special service and be invited to join them in their USA traditional turkey dinner.  Great memories!

God continues to open new opportunities and we look forward to see how God will use us in the coming year.  It has been so interesting as we look back over our years in Mexico and see how God provided opportunities for a season and then the door closed to those opportunities but others doors opened.  As the local nation and culture change so does the way we do ministry.  However, the message remains the same

Thank you for your faithful prayers, encouragement, and support.  You are a vital part of the ministry in Baja and without you we could not continue to serve.  Attached is our latest newsletter so you know what God is doing in San Vicente.

We pray you have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Feliz navidad y próspero año nuevo

Lynne and I had a great summer and hope you will enjoy reading a couple of the highlights in the attached newsletter.  God is do an amazing work in the lives of the Angels and other key people in San Vicente.  We are thrilled to have front row seats to the life journey of so many people as they mature in the walk with our great God

Thank you for your faithful prayers, encouragement and support.  We are truly blessed to have you as part of our team and be able to serve God in Baja.

Late news:  Dave fell off a ladder a few days ago and after a trip to San Diego we know that nothing is broken.  However, he does have limited mobility and some pain.  We ask you to pray for a full recovery and that the pain will be limited so we can complete our trip on the west coast to share about the ministry in Mexico.

God bless you and know you are valued and appreciated

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

 

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
