FRIDAY NIGHT PRAYER GROUP

It all began with a prayer group; for the last 54 years we’ve met every Friday night. We were a group of Lutherans who had a passion to reach the world for Christ. Through the years our numbers have varied but we have met faithfully. Out of this group of prayer warriors, the Baja Mission in Mexico was birthed.

BABY RIKER

Thank you sincerely for your prayers for our great grandson Riker. He will be a year old in September. Every few weeks or more often this precious little fellow has to go under laser surgery. He is also blind but his parents really believe that he is able to see out of one eye. Thank you for praying.

PASTOR DAVID

Pastor David Mendez was one of the first pastors of our Mission Church. David’s mother was a graduate of Moody Bible Institute. She went to Mexico City as a missionary, then later to Vicente Guerrero. We experienced great growth during Pastor David's ministry. We moved from the chapel to the old theater and then the Mission Church. Recently, David was rushed to Ensenada with kidney failure. He was diagnosed with kidney stones. On Wednesday, the ultrasound revealed the kidney stone was gone. Thank God for answering prayers for David.

CHARLA, MINERVA AND CHUCK AT MISSION SAN JUAN CAPISTRANO

Minerva Trujillo, from Mexico City, joined our teaching staff 28 years ago. Many of our children had never been to school and she brought them up to grade level. She taught at our Bible Institute, to the bane of her existence. Currently, she oversees our children’s sponsorship program. To our delight, we had the privilege of hosting Minerva in our home.
