PASTOR SAM

Seventy-eight people attended our monthly prayer dinner hosted
at the Lutheran Church of the Cross, (that’s a record).

Valerie Ellis served a delicious dinner and Sam Parsons poured his heart
out in grief. As you know, his wife Colleen died of sepsis
on May 10th while they were on vacation.

Please continue to pray for Sam and his children and grandchildren.

The memorial service will be held Saturday, June 16th.

Sam ministers in nursing homes throughout Orange County and lives by faith. There was an amazing outpouring of love and appreciation for his ministry.
A very generous financial gift was given to him.

Thank you to all who gave!

MALICE IN THE PALACE

Cheryl Trevor
 from the Baja Mission writes: “On June 1st the children of the school presented Malice in the Palace, the story of Esther. It was an hour-long musical play that the kids have been preparing since January.  Everything was performed live and the kids did an excellent job!  We also enjoyed a dessert potluck and displays of the children's school work all around the theater.  I was proud of the kids for beating their nerves and performing on the big stage in front of 150 people. And I was even more grateful for the message of the play: that God has placed us here for a reason.
All glory goes to God for a wonderful event!”  

How blessed we are to have Cheryl Trevor as school principal. She produced our annual Christmas pageant for years. How blessed these children are! They could be numbered among “the least of these,” from abject poverty.

Thank you for your faithful support!

CESAR

The sidewalk leading from the Baja Mission to the church has 106 tiles with the key events from Genesis to Revelation. The Walk Through the Bible is chronological.

As you know the Bible is grouped by Books of Moses, Books of history, poetry, etc. Cesar Perez at our Bible Institute successfully memorized the 106 events from Genesis to Revelation.

Congratulations Cesar!

MARISOL

Marisol Cervantes, a University graduate, writes: “Both of my parents died when
I was 13. Needless to say I was devastated, but God opened the door to
The Home for Children in Vicente Guerrero and new hope for the future.
Then, who could have believed that I would be able to continue my education
at the University. At the Student’s Home in Tijuana I had safety and the joy of living
in a Christ centered home. Thank you to those who faithfully supported me
and thank you Ricardo and Andrea Bolanos.”

YULISSA

Another University graduate, Yulissa Guzman writes: “I arrived at the Children’s Home in Baja at three years old. I was loved with the love of God by all who cared for me. Thanks to their investment, I am who I am. I am graduating from the University with a degree in teaching English as a second language. I have also studied French, Spanish and sign language and hope to be an interpreter. I am so thankful to God for all the people who supported me through these many years.” 

Your investment will not return void. Thank you.
