International Missions – August 7, 2019

Pastor Leon and his wife, Cleo

I recently spoke by phone with Pastor Leon of the Iglesia Nuestro Refugio Church (Our Refuge) in Tijuana. He is now out of the hospital (three-week stay) and is back to working again. Pastor Leon suffers from a chronic intestinal disorder that can be life-threatening. He thanks everyone for their prayers and concerns for him and his wife.

His wife Cleo had knee replacement surgery that required a second surgery because of a secondary infection. She is currently being aided by Mexican Medical Ministries (Craig and Kristi Libby) to help locate a surgeon to get a second opinion and is possibly facing another surgery to relieve the pain. Please continue to pray for them and for their children who are helping to run the church ministries until both Pastor Leon and Cleo are serving at full capacity.

Serving the Homeless

In July, Pastor Jaime Sandoval’s church joined forces with a church in the central part of Ensenada to bring spiritual and physical blessings to the homeless men living in Ensenada. They had a program of music and an uplifting message of encouragement (in Christ). The servants provided refreshments, sandwiches and burritos to the men present.

The Torre se Salvación Church (Tower of Salvation) has also been able to maintain their feeding program throughout the summer with the assistance of the “Bread of Life” program. Thank you all who make this program possible.

Double Wedding


This past Saturday (August 3) Pastor Marcus Luna preformed his first double wedding for two couples from his church on one of the beaches of Ensenada. Our blessings and prayers go out to the wedding couples as they start their lives together in Christ.
