Today, our flight got canceled and we are going to travel to Ensenada tomorrow. We know God is in control and we are excited to see what He has planned for this week in Mexico. God is good!

Food Distribution

by Adriana Leal Espinoza | June 28, 2022 12:13 AM

Today we had our first day of food distribution in Ensenada! God allowed us to bless this man today, and we know this is more than a food basket, it's about an encounter with God. Keep praying for our team as we go in faith tomorrow to do food distribution again and hoping God would speak to the people's lives.

The Birth of Christ

by Joe Garcia | June 28, 2022 12:29 AM

Our team today decided to do a play on the birth of Christ. It was portrayed with so much enthusiasm that it got my attention too.

Our team was so into the play and we all had the Holy Spirit with and in us. Even the children put all their attention into the play.  God bless VBS!

Winning Team!

Food distribution is one of the ministries we do in Baja California, and it's about buying food baskets for families in need and not only providing for physical needs, but also for spiritual needs.

We love getting to know the families we visit, sharing encouraging words, and praying over them. We also like to make it fun when it comes to our first step: buying the groceries. We make teams to buy at least two food baskets, so that means two teams, we give them a list and they have to run and get it all. The team that finishes first, wins! Here's a picture of today's winners 🏆

Winning Team!

Painting Project

by Adriana Leal Espinoza | June 29, 2022 2:12 AM

We did so many things today, but one of those was the painting project. While part of our team was doing VBS, the other part was doing this painting project. It's looking good!

Loving Kids Ministry

by Adriana Leal Espinoza | June 30, 2022 12:51 AM

We always love kids' ministry and every day we feel more connected with them. From songs to fun games, there's always something good we all take from doing VBS. We get out of our comfort zone and it's great to experience God working through everything. God is good all the time!

Today we started painting the fence of the church. We love being part of this project because we know it's going to make the church look beautiful. We're happy to serve God in this way!

Today we had our debrief at a park close to the lodging. We loved being outside and having fresh air while reflecting on the things we learned today and everything we're grateful for.

Celebration Dinner

by Adriana Leal Espinoza | July 1, 2022 1:27 AM

Today we had our last day of doing ministry and our celebration dinner. What a day! We did lots of things and we laughed, danced, played, cried, and it was awesome!

We connected with the people we met at church and the kids that showed up to VBS. Love was our universal language. This day was very emotional because we said goodbye to everyone, but we'll cherish our memories together and we want to take this home and practice what we learned here.
