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.

She is now serving as a social worker in Mendocino County.

are shown love, care and the Gospel is presented.

REVEREND JOHN LUCAS

The prayer group dinner was superb. Chuck sang to the glory of God, accompanied by John. The beautiful saga of how we met Reverend John Lucas was shared. It led to trips across Alberta and beyond. Then John shared the history of his ministry, which has changed the world.

The next prayer group dinner will be Saturday night, May 4. There is a conflict of schedule at the Lutheran Church. Once again, Saturday May 4 at 6 p.m. is the prayer group dinner. Please notify others of this date and day change.

GREG AND ANGELA THOMSON

Our precious missionary friends, Greg and Angela, requested prayer
for their grandson Samuel. He is almost one week old
and has been on a respirator. They have just taken him off of it
but the MRI shows severe neurological damage.

 Please pray the damage is reversed and pray
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.

Ruth has her father’s passion to reach the lost… ”I believe our country is at war spiritually. Will you join me in praying and fasting for the unsaved and for our country?” Ezekiel 33:2-7a, II Chronicles 16:9 and Isaiah 6:8.  Ruth signs off, “Onward Christian Soldier.”

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

Rejoicing that our children were represented in a 6km race.
Although they were not the winners, they ran a good race to the glory of God.

Our children are given a Christian education through the 6th grade, then they will begin junior high at the public school in tow. They especially need your prayers to stay firm in their faith in God and values they learned at the mission as they make this transition.

POPOCATEPETL VOLCANO

Please pray for the Mexican States close to the Popocatepetl volcano. Mexican authorities raised the alert level as activity intensifies. Pray it does not cause a big disaster on the States of Puebla, Morelos and State of Mexico together with Mexico City.

Maya in Tijuana has an urgent prayer request for 4-year-old Yamilett who’s mother was living with several other women,
all of whom were in prostitution and drugs. Last week in desperation Yamilett's mother came up to Maya saying that she wanted
to take her own life. She begged Maya to take her to a rehab facility
and to take care of her daughter. Yamilett is now living with Maya and Keith and they are having her checked by doctors to make sure she doesn’t have Tuberculosis nor is positive for HIV. The mother does.

WOW!  This is a must-see movie! There is NO SEX, NO DRUGS, NO NUDITY, and NO CURSING! However, it is an "R" Rated movie!!!!! Why? Probably because it is not POLITICALLY CORRECT! I don't know what the age cut-off is anymore, but whatever it is, parents take your teens to see this movie! The name of the movie?  "UNPLANNED"!

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

March Newsletter - Founder’s Corner: Jean Darnell

Dr. Henrietta Mears mentored me. But Jean Darnell befriended me. My life and His Ministry were forever changed. I had the privilege to be mentored under two titans of the Christian faith. Although different in their approach, both of these Spirit-led women had a profound influence on our lives.

I was mentored by Dr. Henrietta Mears in the late 1950s. At the First Presbyterian Church of Hollywood, she served as director of Christian Education. Her passion for teaching led her to create the world’s largest Sunday School and Gospel Light Press. She influenced the life of Billy Graham and Bill Bright, the founder of Campus Crusade for Christ.

Jean Darnell was a student of the charismatic evangelist Aimee Semple McPherson. Sister Aimee founded the Foursquare Gospel Church and Angelus Temple in Los Angeles. She led the charismatic renewal that swept the world.

Jean and I met at St. Mark’s Episcopal Prayer Group in Van Nuys, CA. Jean often spoke and ministered there.

In 1966, she resigned from Angelus Temple and formed the Foundation for His Ministry. (Chuck Pereau was one of her seven board members.) Jean was going on an around-the-world trip to share the Good News with others. The Foundation would enable friends to financially support her ministry.

So Jean flew to England and I went to Baja, Mexico. We wrote each other throughout the years and she supported our vision for the Mission. (Read Charla’s Children for the full story.) Jean led us to Isaiah 58:6-12 which had prophetic significance for us … “Dividing our bread with the poor. Bringing the homeless into our home. Rebuilding the ancient ruins.”

It was Jean who offered us the name “Foundation for His Ministry” to save us the expense and legalities of forming a new corporation. She was with us at the beginning, and fifty years later Jean spoke at our Anniversary celebration for the Baja Mission.

There are many stories I could share about our precious sister Jean. She was a faithful witness to the nations and our beloved friend. While our world may have dimmed; the heavens surely shine brighter with her presence.

March Newsletter - Changing Families One Child at a Time

This past August, Foundation for His Ministry was presented with an incredible opportunity. The local government constructed a new Daycare facility in San Quintin, approximately 15 miles south of the mission. This is an impoverished area with the majority of adults working in the fields leaving many children at home to care for younger siblings. 

DIF (social services) recognized the need for a free daycare in this neighborhood and as construction was nearing completion, approached the mission about taking responsibility for the new center in all aspects. This included operating costs of staffing, food, water and maintenance. But, it also afforded the mission the freedom to share Jesus with all the attending children and their families. As such, the Board of Directors met and discussed the opportunity and asked for prayers of discernment and accepted this exciting challenge and opportunity.  

On October 26, 2018, the Baja staff, the governor and his wife, and hundreds from the community joined in celebration to inaugurate the new facility as construction was finally complete. The daycare officially opened and received the first six children the week of  October 29. In three short months, we have grown to 91 students with the capacity to care for 120. Children range from one year to 12 years and we provide transportation for the older children to their respective schools.

daycare photos_banner.png

We currently have 13 on staff, some of whom transitioned from the Baja Mission and others who are local to San Quintin.  

Already we are seeing benefits to this community, specifically with the children we serve. Children who would potentially be alone due to working parent(s) are now being nourished and cared for in a safe Christian environment. Many of the children were bordering on malnutrition when they started attending our program, coming from a diet of rice and beans. We are grateful to USANA True Health for providing the funds for fresh produce and water in San Quintin. The telltale signs of malnutrition, including spots on the face, are clearing.  

At 6am, the center opens and before the doors are unlocked, there are families waiting in line. Children are fed a healthy breakfast and lunch and a snack throughout the day. The health and energy levels have visibly improved with more well-rounded

nutrition. With basic needs met, the rest of the day can be spent on activities, crafts, homework help, reading and enjoying the outdoors on our artificial turf. The center currently closes at 4pm.  

As the children become more comfortable with our teachers, they are opening up and allowing us to pray with them and minister to them. Our teachers are loving and kind as they not only teach basics of hygiene and manners but more so, letting each child know they have value and are cherished by a loving God.  

We thank you for your ongoing prayers as we continue to grow and serve in the San Quintin valley.

“Little Children, let us not love with word or with tongue but in deed and truth”.  1 John 3:18

March Newsletter - A Home in Sinaloa

home in sinaloa.png

A few years ago, we felt God moving on our hearts to expand the work we are doing in Sinaloa to include a children’s home. We already have a house in the capital city of Culiacán. The family living there has been building a team to minister in the migrant camps surrounding the area.

Over 250,000 field workers come from all over Mexico every year for nine months to harvest tomatoes, corn, and every kind of vegetable you can think of. The team’s goal is to share the Gospel and make disciples so that when these workers return to their homes we are sending out missionaries all over the country. We knew we wanted this work to continue, but we also wanted to begin rescuing children who had been abused or abandoned.

So we began sharing our vision and what God had put on our hearts and He began providing funding through various sources to buy land to build our children’s home. Through a series of miracles and sacrificial giving, we found we had enough money to be able to purchase property.

But then we couldn’t find the right piece of property. We would think we had found the perfect piece and for one reason or another, it would fall through. Usually when someone has a dream from God they have the property and they are praying for the money. But we have found ourselves in the opposite situation – we have the money and we are praying for the property.

And that is still where we are today. We are confident that God has called us to this important work. We are praying He will show us exactly what piece of property we should buy to begin making this dream a reality. And we are trusting that His timing is perfect.

THREE WHEELCHAIRS WERE DISTRIBUTED
TO THE NEEDY THIS MONTH


The Angel Ministry was founded by Angel Baeza. He was a little boy found in the garbage dump in Ensenada. Angel had many surgeries through the kindness of Shriners Hospital in Los Angeles. Later, he returned to the Baja Mission and launched a ministry to the disabled. They modify wheelchairs so they are functional in the dirt terrain. Once Angel left, Dirk Kos took up the mantel. When Dirk left, Benjamin Muciño took up this vital ministry.

Weekly Prayer & Praise - February 22, 2019

Thank you for praying. “Start each day with a grateful heart and do the kindest thing you
can do today and you will always be in the center of God’s will.”
 
This was the advice given to me by my mother when I was about 13.


riker_pereau grandchild.png

RIKER

Urgent need for prayer: 
Our son Dana sends an update on baby Riker. “Things have taken a serious turn for baby Riker. Yesterday he suffered a seizure. Now the neurologists at CHOLA are being called in. He was clearly not himself, even crying uncontrollably, 'I want my daddy,'  as Nate, his father, was holding him. Imagine terrible two mixed with I'm not sure who or where I am.


We are extremely concerned, and Dr. Melissa Pereau is now involved in trying to bring in another pediatric neurologist who specializes in Sturge Weber Syndrome. Last night he cried and fussed for hours back and forth between Nate and Alexandra, his mother. It is now 6:30 Tuesday morning and it is finally quiet. 
Please add him to your prayer list.

connard and deanna hoffman.png

CONNARD AND DEANNA HOFFMAN

We often receive delightful greetings from Deanna.
I thought the following was exceptional. 

There once was a man named Valentine,
Who challenged an edict in his time,
That forbade the marriage of soldier and bride.
 
For the Emperor feared that this would deride,
The ability of a man to fight without fear
To fight but with heart on the one He held dear.
 
So Valentine offered a solution to those,
A marriage in secret to those who chose,
To place their lives in The Hands of The Lord,
Choose marriage to bind with God’s strong cord!
 
For this Valentine was condemned to die,
The last note he wrote, said ” from your Valentine.”
 
So, as we celebrate Valentine’s Day,
I think of the love that prompted him to pray.
 
To God who is love in its purest form,
A love that goes far beyond the norm.
A love that so loved, God sent His Son Jesus to die,
Then rise again to sit at Father God’s right side!
 
Valentine knew the right thing to do,
He chose God’s way, even if his life he would lose!
 
Will I be like one named Valentine,
Who chose the right even though a crime?
Or will I go along with the flow,
In order to keep the friends that I now know?
Each new day God gives us a choice.
So, whom will you choose from heart and voice?
 
Joshua said” Choose you this day whom you will serve,
As for me and my house we will serve The Lord.”

HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY

My favorite holiday is Thanksgiving; we can’t commercialize gratitude. My second most favorite holiday is Valentines Day. Legend has it that Valentine was imprisoned for his faith in Jesus about 270 C.E. St. Valentine sent heart shaped notes to encourage believers. Legend has it that he prayed for his jailer’s daughter and she was miraculously healed. Valentine’s actions were discovered, Claudius ordered that he was to be put to death.

We wish we could send you all a Valentine to thank you
from the bottom of our heart for your gift of prayers.

MARILYN AND DAVE BOTZENHARDT
 

Praise report, answered prayer!

Pastor Mike Bayer reports, “David’s doctor on Tuesday said he is now cancer free. He had cancer in his lungs. Dave has been taking a cancer-fighting drug for a few months now that has a lot of promise for certain cancer patients. We thank God for His inspiration to those doing medical research and the advances we’ve seen. Hundreds maybe thousands have been praying for Dave. Several besides Dave have had or have a cancer diagnosis. I saw in the Spirit people standing for prayer and the congregation coming around them to pray and felt God would heal some. But here’s the thing about prayer for healing: it’s not one person or one time (usually). It’s a combination or culmination of prayer over time by many people. There is often a moment when it all drops out of heaven and healing is manifested. Every person who has prayed for Dave is in on this blessing Everyone had a part in this. Was it the meds or the prayer? Medication can help, but ONLY GOD can heal.

RIKER AFTER SURGERY

An update on precious Riker: Riker has had many surgeries on his face to remove birth marks, which covered his face. He has very limited vision in one eye and during the last surgery pressures were improved. But he was so upset over the surgeons probing they were unable to complete their work, so he will go back in a couple of weeks and go under general anesthesia for more work.

February Newsletter - Founder’s Corner: An Unforgettable Trip

feb_founders corner.png

Twila Belk will write the sequel to Charla’s Children. There have been several attempts, but to no avail. Janelle and I took Twila to Oaxaca and Baja so she could experience the ministry. She interviewed a number of missionaries, including Juan Merino, who worked with John Moore.

This leather-skinned Trique man swung heavy sacks of pineapples on his back. Sweat soaked his torn shirt but at least he had work. (For three years, illness prevented him from supporting his family.) Juan followed the seasonal work: pineapples then tomatoes. Rumors told of work in Baja, so Juan and his family migrated there in 1981. They discovered a more bitter reality there: a tiny room for his family of ten that stunk of raw sewage and stale smoke.

charla.png

Unattended, sickly children sat in the dirt. Juan had to accept what he could not change; he had no money to return to Oaxaca. They fought despair and both turned to alcohol and native witchcraft for escape.

Their son, Felix, came to visit from Tijuana. He spoke to them about God and His Son, Jesus, and their need to repent. He took his father to the Mission church and Juan and Maria were converted to Christianity.

Juan was given a job in the macadamia nut orchard where John Moore had covered the cost of five employees anonymously until he graduated to Heaven. “There he would eat of the Tree of Life in paradise.” Genesis 2:7

Please pray for Twila as she takes on this project.

It is a heart-wrenching story of faith in God and

miraculous answers to prayer.

February Newsletter - Come and See

Getting a front-row view to the workings and movements of God is one of those experiences that fills your spirit and gives you the hope that one needs to continue forward with confidence.

I see God working when the child who arrived at our home with a vocabulary smaller than his hands learns to speak in a safe space. I see it when children with heavy hearts learn to forgive the ones who were supposed to protect them and didn’t. I see God when families reunite and learn to live in the shared grace that Christ offers us.

I see God at work when we step outside of the walls of our home and boldly walk into the darkness, being faithful to an indigenous community, a restoring man, or even a prisoner who needs the gospel message. I see God working every single sunrise as this home stands tall.

February Newsletter - Serving Oaxaca for 20 years

feb_boy in oaxaca.png

This year we are celebrating the 20th anniversary of our ministry in Oaxaca. The whole mission began with a vision to reach the unreached people in the mountains.

It is now a multi-faceted Mission with a children’s home, prison ministries, church and missionaries who live and minister to the indigenous people in the mountains.

God has worked and is working in amazing ways and we want Him to receive all the glory.

So I asked some of the staff in Oaxaca to share how they see God at work in the Mission and in their areas of ministry.

This month we want to share some of these stories with you as we celebrate our anniversary.
