fourth of july.png

During the American Revolution, the legal separation of the Thirteen Colonies from Great Britain in 1776 on July 4th came when the Second Continental Congress voted to approve a resolution of independence.

Charla was born on the Fourth of July in Detroit, Michigan.
Eastwood Park celebrated with a fireworks show which we watched from the roof of our home. I didn’t know that they were celebrating the Fourth of July until about age seven. My father told me they were celebrating my birthday!

Happy Fourth of July to you and yours.

AMELIA

Update on Amelia, Dana Pereau and Antoinette’s grandchild
Late last year we learned that she was losing what little sight she has in her right eye due to a large cataract and deprivation Amblyopia. The lens must be replaced, but she also needs an iris to help filter light and improve vision. A unique surgery can remove and replace the useless lens at the same time as placing an iris where there never was one before; a rare procedure U.S. insurance companies have no billing code for yet.
Irises for this type of surgery are made in Germany,

Dr. Snyder of the Eye Institute of Cincinnati is the only surgeon in the U.S. who has ever performed this procedure and was responsible for its FDA approval. There was an opening in his schedule. Tom, Melissa and Amelia flew to Ohio in February, only to learn the bad news. Although Dr Snyder believed Amelia was a candidate and it could be successful, her insurance company in Washington said it absolutely could not be done; there was no billing code for it and specialists in WA denied it was possible. Funds would need to be sent to Germany immediately if they had any hope of Dr Snyder doing the dual procedure in the U.S. BUT GOD.

Tom and Melissa arranged for the wire transfer to Germany,
and they flew with Amelia for her surgery on June 27th.
Pray for a successful and speedy recovery.

LUTHERAN CHURCH OF THE CROSS

Answered Prayer: On March 30, Samuel came into the world at 10:46 PM.
It took a medical team 6 minutes to resuscitate him. Samuel’s prognosis was not good. They arranged for a team of specialists to come to Children’s Hospital in Hamilton, Ontario; It looked like Samuel might not survive.
The pastor and his wife were there praying for a miracle. (Samuel was also on our prayer and praise letter.) On this one- month anniversary since Samuel’s birth, he woke up at home, whimpering to be fed. What a miracle!

Another children’s camp will be held this summer.
Camperships are still needed for a life changing transformation.

GRACIELA CORDOBA

A prayer request from Graciela while she was on a Baja outreach in Sinaloa, Mexico.

The theme we spoke on with the women was inner healing and the value of a woman. Two women were healed from wounds of their past through forgiveness. The surprising thing is what human beings are capable of doing when they are far from God. The stories that I heard there I have only seen on television. The need for God is very great. We need to call out to God for the salvation of these people. They are living an empty life with much sadness and darkness. What an opportunity to present to the children a different life in Christ Jesus!

Abel, Salvador, Raul and Mario were sharing every night the word of love and salvation that God has for men. I had the opportunity to pray for a field worker in that place, a man drowning in alcohol. We pray that God makes a total change. There the people live in laminate houses that are extremely hot and of course the mosquitos were ready to eat our blood and leave us their poison. Our niece Eveling was not doing well because of these bites. She had a high fever and her feet were swollen. Mario took her to a doctor because of the seriousness of her physical state. We were happy to take the Good News to this place.”

bible institute_juventino.png

JUVENTINO

Carlos Quijada, Bible Institute Director, writes about one of his students, Juventino from Santiago Jocotepec Choapan.

 “I am writing about him because of his desire to know God better. He took a four day bus ride without a bathroom, without air conditioning, without a seat; just a blanket to lay down in the aisle so that he could rest a little. He traveled for more than 3,000 kilometers in these conditions. What made Juventino decide to come to the Bible Institute? It was the fact that when he came to know Jesus as his Savior, his desire was to know Him better.”

oaxaa_laura rodriguez.png

LAURA RODRIGUEZ

Laura, administrator from Oaxaca writes, “My doctor thinks
I need a tonsillectomy, and referred me to a surgeon. The surgeon
seemed to think a tonsillectomy is the best option too, however
he did his due diligence in making sure I know how difficult and painful
this will be. But when I think of the alternative, this constant discomfort
and complications, I am hoping a few weeks of pain is temporary
and worth it. So, my appointment is scheduled for July 11th
.”

Please be in prayer for Laura’s surgery.

May Newsletter - TJ House: Thriving Community of Students

may - tj house.png

The TJ House is alive and active this spring! We see the hand of God working in each area of the TJ House: the hearts of our students, construction projects, and our graduated student community.

As our students navigate college life, we are so thankful to see them coming into their own, serving in their community and growing into incredible, followers of Christ. The Lord is refining the gifts and talents each of our students have as they peruse their academic careers and achieve their goals.

may_tj house_runners.png

Two of our students recently raced in a 6K in San Quintin with a handful of other students from the children’s home in Vicente Guerrero. Other students have been serving alongside Keith and Maya Durkin in the Red-light District of Tijuana called Zona Norte.

While more students are serving with our local church, Iglesia Ancla. We are so encouraged to see the student’s faith worked in good deeds throughout our city.

Our TJ House seems to be under a constant state of construction. After our big remodel we have continually had maintenance projects going on to

improve or beautify the grounds.

We are thankful to be in the midst of reroofing the entire house, and are grateful to those of you who continue to give, helping to keep us dry through the rainy season.

Finally, we are grateful for a growing TJ House community as students who have graduated in recent years continue to be a part of our lives. Recent graduates continue to visit us on a weekly basis, go to church with us and still come to the house for birthday parties and holidays. We are grateful to see the Lord continuing to work in their lives as they persue their professional careers, marry, and have babies.

This work God is doing is an extension of faithful givers and sponsors.

With a rough start, and each new day seeming to bring more hard news, this month of the year felt so long. But there were also special times and ways we saw God working all things, even the challenging ones, for our good.

We have been dealing with many illnesses among the staff, as well as family of the staff (several family members requiring trips to the hospital and emergency surgeries). Staff have been visiting the doctor this month with fevers, pain, and infections. And I have been experiencing throat issues which appears to be problems with small holes in my tonsils that get easily infected; I may need to get my tonsils removed soon.

One of the biggest events for the mission this month was a visit from the wife of the governor of Oaxaca, Ivette Morán (pictured above wearing white with Laura wearing black), de Murat. She is the honorary president of social services (DIF) in Oaxaca and came accompanied by many members of DIF and the state government. We received a few days notice before her visit, so all the children were able to be here, and Edgar gave her a tour of the home. She seems to be a genuinely kind and caring person and we enjoyed her visit.

Miguel Angel is a psychologist who comes to meet with some of our children. His uncle is now the mayor of Tlacolula. Miguel was able to help us

present a request to the governor’s wife for the paving of the road that runs from the highway to our front gate. The response has been swift, and plans are in motion to get that done as soon as possible – so that is exciting.

Another special highlight for me this month was being able to attend the Oaxaca Women’s Retreat with two other ladies from our staff (Anita – kitchen supervisor and Abby – principal of Oasis). One of my main takeaways from that retreat was that just because something is hard doesn’t mean that it is not for our benefit. I’m so thankful for the reminder that God still acts and moves even when it is hard for us to perceive it. That helped me a great deal during this challenging month and continues to be an encouragement. Thank you for your prayerful support.

BECAUSE OF THE INCREASING scope of the ministry in Oaxaca and because of new requirements by the Mexican govern ment, we have to purchase a new electric transformer for the Mission. This new transformer will allow us to handle the electric needs of the Mission and dream about expansion in the future. We still need $10,000 for the transformer.

May Newsletter - Gratitude

I just returned from a 12-day speaking trip in Oregon and Washington. I love these trips because I get to meet and connect with some of the amazing people who are a part of our team through financial support, volunteering and sponsorship.

I love when I hear a pastor tell their congregation “we have a ministry in Mexico.” They understand that we are all working together, doing our part to expand the Kingdom of God in Mexico.

Another highlight of these trips is telling stories repeatedly about what God is doing in Mexico.

This turns into a spiritual exercise of gratitude that is good for my soul and gives me motivation to continue.

“Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.” (Galatians 6:9)

We also hear these stories each month when each of our locations turns in a monthly report to the Board of Directors. In this newsletter I want to share the latest submissions from these reports of some of our leaders so you can hear their hearts and get a glimpse of God’s work.

April Newsletter - Founder’s Corner: Corrine Ehrick

If ever there was a “Jewel of the Mission”,

it was Corrine Ehrick. This elegant woman of God was as comfortable in high heels as she was in work boots. She could charm guests at a luncheon with the Governor’s wife and then serve the poorest of the poor in the cardboard shacks of the camps.

Corrine didn’t come to the Lord until

she was forty, but she committed then to serve Him praying, “Lord, you are not getting much – just the husks, but they’re Yours.” She had overcome an abusive childhood, but she stepped fully into God’s plan for her life and that led her to the mission field.

She arrived in Baja and became the bookkeeper. She thought she would give it three months – but He had bigger plans for her amazing talent and compassionate heart.

Corrine was dedicated to the most desperate

and lost in the San Quintin valley. She loved to serve in the camps and poured God’s love on the people there. She tended to a blind man (pictured right) whose body and shack she would

regularly clean.

But she was also fearless and charming and that enabled her to touch the hardest of hearts – a Rancher who had 1,000 employees in his camp.

With Corrine’s unique blend of elegance and determination, she was the catalyst that led that Rancher to tear down the cardboard shanties his workers were living in and provide them stable, block homes.

Corrine was someone you just didn’t want to say “No” to!

Within four years, the Foundation board asked her to become the Mission Administrator and she was spectacular in that role. Corrine was a force to reckon with and a shining example of God’s love in high heels and work boots!

Corrine went to be with the Lord on March 3, 2019. She will always be loved and remembered for the wonderful friend and servant she was.

OUTREACH TO REHAB CENTERS

Inspired by conferences for women, leaders, and youth;
one of our staff members, Pablo, at the Oaxaca Mission,
had a vision of a conference for people in rehab centers.
That dream was realized this past weekend as we celebrated
the first Adulam Conference, (named after the cave
where those who were in distress or in debt
or discontented gathered around David) - 1 Samuel 22

Please pray for the men and women from various rehab centers in Oaxaca who were ministered to during this special weekend.

UNPLANNED

Praise God! Another Planned Parenthood center was
closed in costa Mesa, Ca. Bill Zersen writes: “Today I saw an
"AVAILABLE" sign on an abortion clinic of Planned Parenthood.
Asking the people inside the next-door church, they said that yes,
indeed the Planned Parenthood clinic had moved out and closed up completely! That is an unbelievably good Praise report as the church
and everyone there had been praying for the clinic to close for a long time.  Just like the clinic in the movie "UNPLANNED" which closed up,
this is another example of prayers making a major impact!

It is not too late to see the movie, in select theaters. It’s a must see.

BABY SAMUEL

Update on baby Samuel*: Holding eyes open, some brief squeals, latching on mom, sucking, got a little milk.We’re waiting to hear soon that Samuel really cries, swallows, and becomes active. We believe in miracles.

Please pray Jesus heals little Samuel’s brain.

*Samuel is our precious missionary friends, Greg and Angela's, grandson.

YADIRA AND ESTEBAN

Please pray for the health of the Oaxaca staff and their family members.  
Many people are experiencing serious illnesses. Pictured is Esteban
and Yadira who are the coordinators of the mountain missionaries.
They ask for prayer for Yadira's mother who fell and broke her arm
 and prayer for Esteban's mother, who seems to be suffering from brain damage. Additionally, Modesto is experiencing pain in his 'good' eye,
and Enrique, our minister to the prisons, recently had prostate surgery.

HOUSE PARENTS IN OAXACA

Please help us to pray for a housemother for the little girls
at the Oaxaca Mission, and a substitute houseparent.

(These need to be fluent Spanish speakers, Mexican nationals preferred).
We are so thankful for the house parents who are spread thin
to cover the empty positions right now. It is a struggle.

for Samuel's parents, Ron and Marcela.

GRACIELA AND DULCE CORDOBA 

Dulce, the youngest daughter of Mario and Graciela , writes:
 
“The Baja Mission church is organizing a mission’s trip to the
continent of Africa, specifically to Zimbabwe. The purpose of this trip
is to share the Gospel with children and adults, even though it will be
more focused on children. They are going to put together camps for the children as well as other activities. Almost three years ago, I had a dream
that I was in Africa and I knew when I woke up that I would go someday,
and I believe that time is now. When I found out the cost I wondered
if I would be able to go. But the person who is organizing
this trip told us that he understands it is a lot of money and that we
shouldn’t be ashamed to ask. If someone supports us, it is because
God moved on their heart and that it is a blessing from God.
What we will be doing is worth pushing aside our embarrassment
and to look for support.  And here I am, looking for support.”

 
Please pray for Dulce and other team members as they prepare for this trip. And pray that she is able to raise the needed support.

WATER IN NAIROBI

nairobi.png

CHILDREN IN NAIROBI

Trinity Fellowship is a subsidiary of FFHM. Missionaries, Godfrey and Elisabeth Dawkins, report a miraculous event. They were drilling for a well in Nairobi, Kenya. No one knew how deep they would have to drill before striking water, but Joanna had an amazing encounter with a heavenly being right when the rig arrived, “Here I am at a loss for words. How does one describe the indescribable?” 

A tall angel in appearance like a standing column of moving water pouring down onto the drilling site, suddenly came sharply into focus before her. Sure enough, almost within minutes the well proved to be a gusher! Awesome! For technical reasons the engineers had to keep the water running for twenty-four hours. So, all through the night the local community swarmed onto the site with containers of all descriptions slung over the backs of donkeys, excitedly hauling the water away.”

CHILDREN READY FOR THEIR 6K

April Newsletter - Learning Center for Children with Disabilities

A few years ago, some of the students of the Learning Center for children with disabilities and I were studying the book of Acts during our morning devotion. We read chapter 3, where Peter and John healed the crippled man outside of the Temple.

I remember thinking, “Isn’t that wonderful! How powerful is the name of Jesus! With just a little bit of faith, even the lame can walk!” But then I looked up…

In the room were several kids with wheelchairs and walkers… and what seemed to be a very large elephant. My thoughts quickly shifted and I began asking myself, “What about these kids? Where’s their healing? Don’t they have faith? Did they not pray correctly? Why can’t THEY leap from their wheelchairs and begin dancing like the man from the story?” I couldn’t answer these questions.

My initial reaction was to flip the page and begin reading the next chapter (and hope that the kids hadn’t noticed the miraculous healing we had just read about). But instead of avoiding the issue, I addressed it head on. I asked how they felt reading the passage: How they felt knowing that sometimes God heals people, and sometimes He doesn’t; how they felt that God has allowed them to remain with their disabilities?

Cristian (a young man with muscular dystrophy) answered. He explained that it was indeed difficult to read such things. He couldn’t explain why God makes the choices that He does. Cristian did say that he knew his disabilities didn’t keep God from using him. He could still share God’s love and inspire others to push through the hardships of life… and to trust in God.

I realized that day that the kids of the Learning

Center had a strength of character and spiritual maturity that surpassed my own. That would not be the last time these courageous kids would demonstrate such characteristics to me.

Cristian is physically limited to minor movements in his fingers and wrists. But his mind and spirit are strong, active and are constantly pursuing the next level. He paints. He paints well. His talent and attention to detail in his paintings equal those of any artist I’ve seen.

He has completed INEA (the government’s adult education program) and is close to finishing his high school education online. Unable to type with his fingers, he uses two pencils to hit the keys on the computer.

Because of his deep love for God and the Bible, Cristian desires to be a pastor. In fact, he has already had several opportunities to preach. He is hoping

to begin a four year theology program this summer to better equip him for the ministry that he believes God has called him to. Cristian is an inspiration. He is proof that God can use each of us despite any limitations we think we have. He is one of about 30 kids at the Learning Center… each of whom are equally inspiring.

In order to help kids like Cristian pursue their dreams, the opportunity exists to donate to the education fund. Please pray and ask God if he is calling you to partner with him and others in this manner. And while you’re praying, please ask a special blessing for all the Learning Center kids.

April Newsletter - God is Working in Mexico

god is working in mexico.png

Easter is an amazing time to be reminded of God’s grace and goodness as we focus on the gift of new life we receive through Christ. vYour partnership is vital to our ability to serve in Mexico, and we couldn’t complete the mission of His Ministry without your prayers, faithfulness and resources.

Having recently completed a strategic plan for FFHM and given much prayer and thought to what God has for His Ministry, we are excited about how we will see God work this year and in the years ahead to bring new life to San Quintin, the students at TJ House, the men at the Rancho, indigenous people in the mountains of Oaxaca, displaced workers and children in Sinaloa, and of course the many lives represented by our Missions. There is lots to be done in 2019, and we want to encourage you to continue praying and serving with us. Consider how you can visit one of our missions with your immediate or church family.

Pray as we move forward on our plans for Sinaloa and our outreach to this area with thousands of displaced field workers, and consider monthly support for the children in our new daycare in San Quintin.

We value your prayers for His Ministry. We’ve listed a few ideas how you can partner with us financially this year by giving online through our website at ffhm.org, or sending a check referencing the purpose of the gift.

  • Monthly sponsorship of a child in our San Quintin daycare - $ 70.00

  • Monthly sponsorship of new Missionaries in Mountains of Oaxaca - $50.00

  • A Playground in San Quintin at the site of the new daycare - $8,000

  • New Roof at the student home in Tijuana- $10,000

  • Completion of the Outreach Center at Sinaloa - $10,000

We welcome the opportunity to discuss our strategic plan and how you can partner with us to accomplish the goals we have to make disciples in Mexico and bring transformation to communities. Contact Janelle or Kristi at our San Clemente office at (949) 492-2200 or janelle@ffhm.org or kristi@ffhm.org
