Daniel and Yolanda Nuñez

In my last post I mentioned my friend, Daniel Nuñez, who serves in Tijuana. Daniel has a great vision for church planting, and caring for people.

His movement Lo Mejor Del Trigo has planted 11 churches in six years. They also feed up to 700 children breakfast every morning before they go to school. We had the privilege of ministering with them by bringing the Living in Grace seminar to them in November.

When we serve one another, and build relationships God open doors. I’ve always believed that ministry flows through relationship.

Harbor is another important partner the Lord has blessed us with. They are mainly working in San Diego, but they do have a vision to reach into Tijuana.

Over the last few months the relationship between Daniel Nuñez and Harbor has been growing. I invited Daniel to one of the Harbor church planters meetings in January. Daniel was able to talk to Dick Kaufmann, who is leading the Harbor movement. Daniel shared his vision to plant churches in TJ, and beyond with Dick. After Dick heard Daniel’s vision to see a movement started in TJ he said, “We’d like to help you start your next church.” Wow! It’s great to see to gospel-centered ministries come together for kingdom expansion.

Just this last week I met, Leo who is going to plant this new church. Leo shared a great story. His family has some land in Rosarito, Mexico that he inherited, but he had forgotten about it. One day he and his wife were driving by the area where the land is, and something reminded them about this land. This was right around the time they began to think about starting a new work in Rosarito. Leo’s had a desire to plant a church, so he thought, “we could use this land to build our new church!”

Isn’t it exciting to be on mission with God! This is the church plant that Harbor is going to help Lo Mejor Del Trigo start. We pray that it will be the first among many that they partner together on.

Daniel’s vision is to see 50 churches planted in 20 years. He’s a little more than 1/5 of the way there. We do pray for God’s rich blessing, in helping Daniel and Lo Mejor Del Trigo reach this goal.

In His Grip, Dave
