The Day in TJ

Posted: March 16, 2011 in Bright Spots on the Border, Ministry

Dave & Daniel in Tj

On Monday, March 14th I was able to go into Tijuana (TJ), Mexico with Daniel Nunez, and Issaid Arechiga. I went to see some of the ministries that Daniel has been involved in. He has planted 11 churches in five years, which is amazing! At many of their sites they are feeding numerous children breakfast in the morning, and in some sites they are feeding them seven days a week. Up to 500 children are receiving breakfast from this ministry as they show the love of Christ to this community. The Lord is using them in a significant way. It’s encouraging to see the impact they are having in the communities that they are serving in.

Daniel’s ministry is called, “Lo Mejor Del Trigo,” which means The Best of the Wheat. Daniel has a vision to plant 50 churches over 20 years. They are well on their way to accomplishing that goal.

Despite all the bad news about the Border, there are bright spots. God is quietly on the move in TJ! The ministry of Daniel, and Lo Mejor del Trigo is definitely one of the bright spots. We pray for many more. That the gospel will cover Mexico like the waters cover the sea. Dawn and I are praying for people we can encourage and partner with in ministry, and Daniel is someone we believe we can partner with. It was great to be with him, and see what he’s doing. To be able to dream together and pray together. Please join us as we pray for God’s continued leading as we look for strategic partners.

In His Grip, Dave
