I have some families in my congregation that have accepted God as their personal Saviour as a result of receiving God's love in the form of a house.

It's a great experience that Amor has brought and it has enriched my life. May you all continue to be blessed as you have blessed many lives. When I see the people that have benefited in receiving a house I stand amazed. On behalf of the families I want to thank God and you for all your love and support.

This last Firday I drove to Tecate, Mexico to visit our pastors there. We have meetings every month to see how they are doing, if they have any issues to address, if they have any specific needs or just to let them know what is happening at our office in San Diego. We enjoyed partaking together the joys of hearing stories of families that have been blessed with the reality of God's perfect love. We spoke about how we can go beyond our families expectations in blessing them with vital resources. For example, back to school supplies, toys for Christmas, food bank, emergency relief packages for families that have lost a home, and church supplies. They know that only God will be able to meet their needs, but they also are praying that God will touch the hearts of those who are able to give. I'm excited to see how God will provide.
This is the church of Pastor Leoncio where we had our meeting.
Here is Pastor Hortencio and Pastor Ezekiel as we break bread together. Yum! Carne Asada!
This is Pastor Mere writing down the praise reports so that I can share them with everyone!
A supporter donated brand new T-shirts from their company and so here we have the pastors modeling their new shirts.
I was able to take with me to the meeting a box of Spanish Bibles so each pastor was able to take 6 Bibles each and Pastor Leoncio placed them on his church shelf to be ready to use in the next service.
