I hope you are still living in the afterglow of Easter!

It’s because of Easter, because of what Christ did on the cross and through his resurrection that we are heading down to Ensenada, Mexico today to lead a medical missions outreach. A group from Redeemer Presbyterian Church San Diego will be ministering this week with the Nueva Jerusalén church. Redeemer and Nueva Jerusalén put in a lot of time preparing for a successful outreach.

Three Sites for Medical Clinic

Although I’ve led many short-term missions projects this is the first medical missions trip I have led. We are thankful for the wonderful group from Redeemer that is giving up their time to minister to the needs in Ensenada.

We will hold the medical clinic at three sites. On Monday we will be at the mother church (La Nueva Jerusalén). On Tuesday and Wednesday we will serve at one of their mission sites in a community called, Morelos. Thursday we will minister at another mission in the community of Maneadero.

Outreach to Children & Families

The church we are working with in Ensenada (La Nueva Jerusalén) is the same church that Skyview Presbyterian from Denver worked with last year. The Lord gave us an amazing time with them as we used VBS to reach out to children and families in the community. I recently heard from Skyview and they are planning on coming back this summer!

Dawn and I have grown to love the people in this church. We are thrilled that they are so eager to share the good news of Christ.

Join Us In Prayer!

Dawn, Hannah and I will be going on this trip. We’d appreciate much prayer for the group that is going down, as well as for our family. Pray that the Lord goes before us and prepares the hearts of the people we will be working with. Pray as we minister to people’s physical needs that the Lord will open the door to their hearts, and that they will welcome the good news of the gospel.

Pray also that many people will come to the clinic, and that we don’t have any trouble getting things across the border.

Thank you for holding us up in prayer. This is an important week for the ministry here on the border as we seek to see people’s lives transformed.

In His Grip, Dave

    Praising God for your faithfulness and persistence in serving Him even during difficult times. Praying and believing God’s Blessings and Protection over each of you. Praying particular Strength over, in, and through Hannah as she ministers in whichever way led, and shares with others. Praying that the Spirit of Jesus will have opened hearts and opened doors already prepared for you. Praying for a time of sowing, watering, and also a time of harvest, in JESUS Name. Praying for lives and bodies to be touched and healed. Praying for bondages to be broken, and shackles removed. Praying for people to know true Peace from the Prince of Peace. Praying for people to have a hunger and thirst for Righteousness once they have heard God’s Word, a desire to know the God of the Word better, and to be discipled to become disciples and servants of our Lord. God’s Blessings.
