Mexico Ministry Trip
Jonita and I had the privileged of traveling to San José del Cabo, Mexico for a week of ministry, November 28th to December 5th 2018. Pastor Luis Canchola invited us to join him and minister in his church Iglesia Libertad en Cristo (Freedom Church).
In 2006 pastor Luis Alberto Canchola and Eliana García Castillo moved to the city of San José del Cabo and started a church in the courtyard of their house. A year later, after growing and no longer having space God allowed them to meet the owners of the Instituto Internacional Libertad, who permitted them to hold services, where the Church is currently located. In 2017, Iglesia Libertad en Cristo celebrated its tenth anniversary with an average of 300 congregants and 14 ministries.
We had an amazing experience serving in an incredible church with some of the most wonderful and beautiful people. Over the course of the week we had the opportunity of ministering publicly 7 times including the Friday prayer service, Saturday evening church, the second service Sunday morning and the Sunday afternoon service in San Lucas. We attended one of their many home groups and shared the word of God, we also shared a youth devotional in the Christian School. Jonita had a wonderful time sharing and praying with the women's ministry on the Wednesday morning before we left. The people love hospitality and had many great prayer and fellowship times in people's homes.
We had the opportunity to visit "Freedom House" which is a ministry to men who are recovering from addictions and looking for a new start. We had time to pray and encourage a few of the men and leaders. We observed some of the needs first hand as seen in the video and in the future, we would like to help in whatever way we can.
Before we left, we had a quick tour of a new ministry/church that will be opening to reach into the poorer neighborhoods in the area. There is already a kitchen operating and providing food for children and those in need.
By going and reaching out in faith our lives have been radically impacted. In 2019 we look forward to returning and bringing with us others who would like to serve and be apart of a ministry team. If this something that would interest you please let us know!
