It takes a lot of work to make any special event happen, they just don't occur on their own.  At least not in my world.  Much time, effort and money is needed to do almost anything.  Someone once said, it even takes money to save souls.  And, surely, in part that is true.  But, here as I see it, all and everything that gets done, has been and continues to be a combination of many people working together to help those less fortunate than one's self.  No one I know is rich and just flat-out supports every part of this ministry.  And, no one here does everything alone to put these special days together.  It takes team work.  Me, here, I am only one cog in the machine.  You there, and others that can come to Mexico, are other cogs in the great spiritual machine that is God's Salvation.  It all revolves around Him and what He has done for us in the Life of His Son, Jesus.  We are all just common workers, joining our strengths and efforts together to keep one, forward moving evangelistic outreach operational which allows Rancho Santa Fe Mexico Mission, the chance to have a positive impact on several different communities.  How far does our outreach go, I get great letters and notes from people around the world that do the Bible studies that are posted on the base's website.  I learn that people from South America are singing some of the songs I've written and had produced.  People come from numerous parts of the country to stay at the base in San Vicente.  And, many more things like this, but, let me tell you something very important, this is not the work of just one man.  It's your work, their work, our work and above all, His Work.  May it keep going strong and continue on for many years to come.  And, I believe it will as we continue to keep our eyes set on Him and His Mercy, Grace and Love.  And, pray for His will to be done here, every year, all the time.  Then, I am convinced that all the work we do is not in vain and is making a great difference in how many people will really learn about Jesus and go to Heaven with the time comes.  God Bless You All.

Feliz Navidad 2103!

Here, our good friends from Team:  Casa de Dios, help the little ones, in groups of 20, design and paint and create their artistic handicraft, for Christmas.  They always do a very good job at helping our children celebrate Christmas, with joy, friendship, gifts and, of course, Christian Love.

Food is always a part of any celebration and Team:  Casa de Dios, brought some delightful dishes with them to help meet the hunger needs of everyone.  They all went home, full of food, love and Christmas gifts.  A splendid time was had by all.  Amen!

Feliz Navidad 2013!

I don't think that too many of us in San Vicente would ever dare dream of a White Christmas, with snow, ice and frosted forest tops in our neighbourhood, but we do pray for and hope for a Christmas Celebration where lots and lots of children get blessed.  And this year, just like so many others, was just that, a blessed time of fun, activity and friends.  Not-to-mention, some good food, a pinata and some delcious, home-made fruit punch.  Yes, we indeed had all of that and even more.

It is really the Lord, and our family and friends that makes the day something special.  We being joined together to celebrate the birth of our Lord and Saviour Jesus is something wonderful and then just to enjoy one-another's company, makes for a fantastic time.  Which, we truthfully had.
