A Few More Video Clips From Ejido Benito Juarez

This was really a special holiday outreach. There were three different churches working together to help underprivileged families celebrate Christmas. Team: Casa De Dios, from the High Desert, California and La Nueva Jerusalen, from the border area of Tecate and Tijuana and El Camino Agape de San Vicente, Rancho Santa Fe Mexico Mission's church. We enjoy each other's company and loved working together to bless the children in the Name of the Lord. After all, Jesus, really is the reason for the season.

I am not sure who won or if anybody won but I do know that everyone who played really had a good time and got their exercise for the day.

I certainly believe that every outreach, service and trip to outlying areas must include sharing the Good News of God's Love in Christ. Jesus is the only Savior and the only real reason why one would go out to these hidden villages and share God's Love. Bless all that do it and all of those that make it possible.

Blessing upon all of you who helped to make Christmas real of the poor children touched by these ministries. As we travel around to share the truth of God's Word, we all remember that it it He that sent us and His faithful that provide to make the outreaches possible.

May you all have the best year possible!

Thank You For Caring

I just wanted to write a quick note of thanks for each of you who helped to make this a delightful Christmas for so many unfortunate children. I will be posting more photos as the days go by and I get the free time. But, here is one photo that shows the happy faces of some very underprivileged children. God Bless You All. And, I pray that as you gave of yourself that the Lord also gave back to you so that your family experienced the best Christmas ever.

My heart rejoices over the show of Christian love that was poured out upon the boys and girls of San Vicente. They know that Jesus loves them and so do you!

Want To Have Christmas All Year Long?

Important Gifts That You Can’t Wrap

There are many people in the world, especially the younger children, that write a yearly Christmas Wish List. Some adults do it, too. And: Why not? It never hurts or costs us much to dream. And sure, it’s nice to get a gift or two from your special wish list. It really is. Yet, as the Bible says, and it’s true, “It is more blessed to give than to receive,” Acts 20:35. The true Christian heart is known for its great ability to give, asking for nothing in return. Constantly giving from the heart to those in need, is so like Jesus. We should all make each day of our every day lives, a tiny Christmas celebration, 24-7. To give you some ideas on how to do that, I made up a list of things that you can give, all year long, ones that don’t even need to be wrapped.

1. Writing letters or sending cards to long-lost friends. And, not only at Christmas time. Ask about their lives, in detail, before you ever mention yourself and what you’ve been up to.
2. Give someone a real bear-hug and tell them that you love them, care about them or are just happy to see them again.
3. Sit down with a child or some children and just play a game with them for an hour or so.
4. Take a long, leisurely stroll with a friend or two.
5. Turn off the boob-tube and talk with family members for an evening.
6. Take someone out for dinner and have an ice cream treat.
7. Volunteer to clean up the house without being asked to do so.
8. Go visit some older relatives or sing to or play cards with some seniors in a rest home.
9. Offer to baby sit for tired parents, so that they can have the night off.
10. Give compliments out at work, even to the competition.
11. Send a donation to a Christian Charity.
12. Cook dinner and desert for a shut-in family member, friends or a neighbor.
13. Send a thank you note to your children’s teachers.
14. Call a family member that doesn’t live near you, listen to all that they have to say before you ever start taking about yourself.
15. Pray for your pastor and missionaries: Write them a thank you note.
16. Make a special family meal, just because it’s Tuesday, or Friday or any day.

These types of gifts never get old and are always welcomed. It’s never too early to share the Christmas spirit, because you never know when it might be too late to do so. Hebrews 3:13
While today is with us, we must encourage one another to do good works.

“You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lamp stand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in Heaven.” Matthew 5:14-16 and Hebrews 10:24&25, “And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works: Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as you see the Day approaching.”

Team: Casa De Dios & Amigos

Merry Christmas To Everybody. It is my prayer that the Love of God, the Joy of Christ and the Blessings of the Holy Spirit would be shared with everyone we meet this Christmas. Share Salvation.

Happy children, thankful parents and a beautiful God that is pleased, blest and satisfied as we remember the poor of this world and reach out to them in the Name of Jesus. Proverbs 19:17 He that has pity upon the poor lends unto the LORD; and that which he has given will he pay him again. Galatians 2:10 All they asked was that we should continue to remember the poor, the very thing I was eager to do.

This Christmas Celebration was a combined effort on the part of High Desert Church, the faithful of Team: Casa De Dios, our sister church, Nueva Jerusalen, in Tecate and El Camino Agape De San Vicente. I thank the Lord for all that donated gifts, and that came to Rancho Santa Fe Mexico Mission and participated in these joyful festivities. Thank you all for every thing that was done, in Jesus' Precious Name on this special and blessed Christmas Celebration Weekend. God Bless Us All!

Merry Christmas & Happy Birthday To Jesus

Merry Christmas Jesus

I know that the reason for Christmas comes from God the Father, who sent His Only Son, Jesus, the Christ, as a human Child, to live with us here on Earth for a while. So, Blessed Father, for this most excellent and selected Gift, I praise Your Holy Name above all other names, for it is the only Name that can forgive us our sins and that brings us Jesus, the One, True Savior of our souls. I believe that I should live my life as if it’s a gift that I’ve given to You. All my years are my Christmas present to You. By obeying Your sweet and Powerful Word, I’ll live my life in thankful gratitude for the Greatest Gift anyone has ever given to me. You are the Tenderest, most Satisfying and only All Powerful Being to have ever existed. And, I love You with all my heart.

I give to You great thanks Jesus, as Your love is undying and eternal. You’ve so willingly planted the seed of intimate fellowship in my heart when I first believed in Your Saving Grace. You are the most credible and Living Gift ever given in all of man’s sad and tormented history on earth. You promise to all of us that know You in our hearts, that You’ll always be with us, in the here and now and in the times to come. I believe in Your Words, when You tenderly stated that You'll never leave me nor forsake me and that You’ll never abandon me. Happy Birthday to You, my sweet and deserving Jesus; for all that You have done for me. On Your Birthday I pray that all magnificence, dignity and grandness would be showered upon You, throughout the whole world. Therefore I Pray that more and more people will lay down their weapons and come to celebrate You with me, today.

Blessed be our joy as we all draw together near the Christ Tree. We sincerely have so many things to celebrate and so much to be thankful for. I know that in Heaven the angles make merry over spiritual victories they see on earth. Someday, we will all get together as Gods' children, we’ll all observe a great banquet as we mark that one, last final victory, where we will be honoring all the work that God has done for us in Jesus, at that Great Feast of the Lamb. We'll give back everything to our Dear Lord and Savior, Jesus. You have lived the love of God the Father before our eyes, it has touched the world, and our reigns in our hearts, we’ll give you everything, even the very crowns off our heads. For truly, You deserve to be so honored. You gave us your very blood and life and filled us with spiritual gifts and brought us to live with you in the Kingdom of God. We’ll worship at Your feet, we’ll Praise You, and our joy will be full.

Glory to God in the highest! Praise the Blessed Son! And listen to the Holy Spirit as He leads us ever onward, ever upward, thinking on Heavenly things. Today, we worship You here as we will one day do in Heaven. Never again to be divided by space or time, the children of God, living eternally with the Living Lord. All blessings and praise be given to You. Today and forevermore. Today sleigh bells ring out and so do our voices, oh, Lord we want to bring more souls to You. Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound. Maybe today we can be kinder to one another and perhaps share with the lost, lonely and hurting. God’s Living Gift is still being freely given today.

Best wishes and Merry Christmas to one and all and a Happy Birthday to the One and Only Savior of all Mankind. Today may we check out the thoroughfares and look in the highways, taking the Love of God with us and lovingly give it to all those we might encounter as we travel. Christmas should be a joyous time, a special day when sometimes even our dreams come true. In Heaven I hope God will hear our glad songs and Christmas carols and hear the most silent, secret and deepest prayers of our hearts. Christmas is a day of worship, may He know that we are thankful for all that He has given us.
