The Church at San Luis went on Saturday with Curt Vanekeren, Kelly Vanekeren, Marta Iloff and Araceli Flores-Torres from CTC to hand out some new school shoes and tennies in Mexico to kids and adults who don't have funds to purchase new ones. The friends we've been ministering to here for over a year didn't only hand out shoes, but they prayed with hurting people, they shared the gospel message and told them about the love of Jesus, they gave away Bibles, they got to know the folks and invited them to their homes and to be part of their Church - it was so awesome to see and here them lovingly and sincerely and effectively minister to folks!
While I was away ministering in Yuma that evening, I called my wife and she told me that two of my friends from the Church were driving around in the van picking people up out of the rain and mud and taking them to the little room we have at the grounds where we're going to build the community center. That is, without asking or saying anything to the Pastor, they took it upon themselves to go out into the middle of the lightning storm to help and to bless others when everyone else was running for shelter!
Then, when I arrived back in Mexico, I found that my beautiful wife took some hamburgers over to a couple of single ladies who had lost their roof. When I found her, Crispin and Usiel were there nailing plastic tarps back on the roof to keep there few belongings safe for the next round of storms while Iracela was inside talking with the ladies about Jesus - they were all there from 7pm until 1am until the job was finished!
God is doing great things in the lives and through the lives of the people who are the Church at San Luis!!!
