The Afterglow of an Outstanding Week!
This week we’ve been in the afterglow of the outstanding week of VBS outreach we had this last week in Ensenada. Part of what I enjoy is the amazing friends that God has given us to work with.
The group from Skyview led by Tim & Kari Berglund is a quality group of individuals who love Jesus and have a heart to serve him and learn about another culture. The group from Ensenada led by Petri & Yudy Petrikowski is equally amazing. We’ve grown to love and respect those that the Lord has given us the privilege of working alongside.
Apart from the relationships there are the new children and their families that experience the gospel, some of them for the first time. We are praying for the ongoing work of La Nueva Jerusalén as they seek to be an influence in their community. We are lifting the new church planting project called Renuevo that will be in the city center.
This summer God gave us the opportunity to work with Jose Zunun, who is ministering in a poor community called Maneadero. Jose is working with a new mission called Gracia Eterna (Eternal Grace). Despite the fact that Jose began preparing for ministry without even an elementary school degree that he has persevered. He’s gone back to school and finished his high school degree, and he is now enrolled in a theological extension program.
Blown Away by God’s People
Dawn and I continue to be blown away by all the wonderful, godly people who the Lord connects us with as we serve here. Our prayer and desire is to see a movement of God’s Spirit so that His church will grow. Many new churches will be planted and many will come into the kingdom of God.
I put together a short video that highlighted our week of VBS in Ensenada. I think you will enjoy it!

Thank your for praying for us for this outreach, and God’s ongoing work in Ensenada and throughout the border and the Baja!
