Ministerios Transformación pastoral couples and wonderful friends!

 
Last night (Sunday) Dawn and I celebrated the coming of Christ and gave thanks for all that the Lord has done over the past year with our friends from Ministerios Transformación. It was a festive time! It was even more special, because our son, David, who just flew in, was able to join us. Dawn and I love the pastors that serve with Ministerios Transformación. They are among our best friends, and the Lord has used them to encourage us in so many ways over this last year.

We give thanks for our partnership with them!

It reminds me of the wonderful opportunity that we have to serve with so many outstanding servants of our savior in other cities like, Mexico City, Guadalajara, Acapulco, Monterrey, Durango, Reynosa, Juarez, Tijuana, Ensenada and La Paz throughout Mexico. The gospel is going out, and lives are being changed as the message of Christ and His Spirit touches hearts and lives. We give thanks for the privilege to be ambassadors of Christ along with our friends, our partners.

Just as we have the blessing of outstanding friends and partners in Ministerios Transformación here on the border, we have other amazing friends that we partner with throughout Mexico! It’s a privilege for us, and we count it an honor to minister alongside so many humble and gifted ministers of the gospel.

Our MTW Mexico Story in Video

Recently a friend of our ministry, Drew Siner came down to Mexico and helped us shoot some video. He’s helping us to tell our story of what the Lord is doing in all these places where we serve. I thought you would enjoy seeing one of the videos that Drew put together that gives an overview of MTW Mexico’s ministry in Mexico and beyond!

There is no doubt that this has been an unbelievably hard year, as we mourn Hannah’s moving to heaven, but the Lord has not forgotten us. He is bringing healing, and He is still ministering to us and through us.

One of our goals as we head into 2018 is to plant a church in Hannah’s memory with Ministerios Transformación. We’d like to raise $30,000 so we can build and plant this church, and to train and coach the pastor for a successful ministry. We are hoping to have all the funds raised by the end of February 2018, and to build the church in the Springtime. You can help us make this dream a reality by making a donation to Mission to the World (MTW).

Ray and Michele Call

ESL training starts in two weeks, March 23-24. We are stoked about launching this outreach with Harbor Mid City. Ray Call and I met with our good friend from Harbor, Edgardo Avila a couple of days ago. Edgardo is very positive about the training. He spoke highly of Ray, as Ray is doing most of work to organize the training. It’s thrilling to see God work, and open up doors for us here on the border!

Yesterday, Ray and I met with Jim DeWitt for a team meeting. All of us are super encouraged by this opportunity the Lord has given us. We believe prayer is key to the event, and the ensuing classes that will start-up on Friday, April 13. Please do join us in praying that all the loose ends come together.

Here’s some specific prayer requests:

  1. Dave with Pastor Edgardo Avila, A Key Ministry Partner. He leads the Spanish Speaking Church at Harbor Mid City

    We need 1 administrator, and ideally 6 teachers for the training and classes. Right now we have at least 4 teachers, and some other people who have expressed interest!

  2. Ray as he organizes the training on March 23-24, and prepares for the launch of the classes.
  3. Ray’s health – he’s been having some health issues for more than a month. Pray for healing and wholeness.
  4. Kristy Holliday will be leading the ESL training.
  5. That the Lord will bring a good group to come learn English starting on April 13.
  6. We pray that the course will serve the people who come by improving their English skills. We are also praying that many will come to know Christ through this outreach.
  7. Unity for the team as they prepare, and the classes start-up.
  8. Tomorrow, March 11, I’ll be preaching at Calvary Presbyterian in Glendale, California.

Thanks for standing with us in prayer!

In His Grip, Dave
