It is not too late to sign up for tonight’s prayer group dinner at the Lutheran Church of the Cross. Mike Bayer will be sharing his life story of ministry over the past 38 years. The Lord helped him plant two churches and start a radio program before he moved on to his present position as Pastor of the Village Church of Laguna Woods. He is now ordained by the Assembly of God. Together with his wife Judy they have birthed ministries, taught the Word and brought many to Jesus. Please call Linda at (949) 492-2200 to make reservations for the dinner.

Please pray for Daniel Lucas Pioquinto, one of the students at the TJ House who grew up at the Oaxaca Mission. Daniel was born without irises and has had many complications with his eyes because of this. He needs to have cataracts removed and also at an age that he can have a permanent contact lens with an iris placed during the same surgery. We need $3,000 dollars for this procedure and are praying that God provides the funds. We are also praying that this will solve his vision problems and allow him to progress in his university studies.

roberto and sharon.png


Roberto and Sharon Munoz-Flores, served on our Board for many years. I have the fondest memories of Roberto praying with men at gas stations, markets, and a special memory of him praying with a street child. In times of need they were first to be called. Roberto is battling cancer.



As many of you know, Dirk and Mary Kos pioneered our ministry to those with disabilities in Baja. They built the beautiful Learning Center with some of the resources coming from their home in Holland. The time has come for them to return to Canada where their medical expenses will be covered. Perhaps only God knows the impact this couple has had, reaching out to those with disabilities. Educational opportunities were non-existent before the Koses came to this area. They will be leaving in September.

Everett and Lois Wilson went to the Mission last year to teach in our Bible Institute and were warmly received by all.  Lois had a very serious stroke and is recovering slowly.  Kristi Garcia, their daughter, works in our U.S. office and is assisting with their caregiving. Please pray for all concerned.
