This week we are gearing up for the arrival of our friends from Denver, Skyview Presbyterian Church. This is the third summer in a row that they’ve come to work with us, and partner with the church in Ensenada.
The wonderful thing about when a church like Skyview makes a commitment to keep coming back and minister with the people is that they get to know each other. They grow to love each other!
I’ve enjoyed observing the relationship, and how it has grown. Tim and Kari Berglund, who lead the trips have developed a very close relationship with Petri and Yudy Petrikowski our leaders in Ensenada. Even though the Petrikowski’s don’t speak English and the Berglund’s aren’t fluent in Spanish they are able to communicate. They use Google translator to help them.
I must say that these computer translation tools have come a long ways. They do a good job and come pretty close to getting the translation right!
Skyview is bringing a group of 10 to work with La Nueva Jerusalén, and one of their mission churches. They will partner together to hold a VBS outreach.
Join Us In Prayer!
Pray for us as we all make our final preparations for the week of outreach, which will start this Saturday, July 23 and go until the following Saturday.
Prayer is always a huge need and greatly appreciated!
In His Grip, Dave
