David Nasser in "A Call to Grace" says, "If God has been calling you to a life of mission work, surrender today to live and minister among the poorest of the poor is to share the same address as Jesus." How powerful is that statement? As we enter the neighborhoods and visit with the families in and around Mazatlan Mexico, our call to stay is great.
In 2012/2013 our goal is to raise enough money to purchase a vehicle that replaces the worn out existing vehicle which pulls the Mobile Kitchen that the Vineyard uses year around for the feedings in the neighborhoods that do not have kitchen facilities. In addition to the purchase of the vehicle, the mission team hopes to raise enough money for feedings and purchase items for “Mama Bags”.
We are sending teams twice each year in January and October. If you have an interest in going or just interested in helping out with fundraising activities, please notify the church office at (763) 441-2363.
We invite you to support our ministry by:
1. Making a donation for the purchase of a replacement vehicle that pulls the mobile kitchen
2. Filling a shoe bag in November to be delivered to a child in January.
3. Supporting us in the various fund raisers we do during the year.
Most importantly, offering your prayers for the families in Mexico and our team members.
Activities of the mission group January 2012:
Purchased and assembled 420 “Mama Bags” consisting of the following items:
Through out the year Support to Pastor Dave in the town of Madero:
Cost about $50 (Spanish Bibles, Spanish study books, and other miscellaneous supplies)
Fundraising events throughout the year are used to cover these expenses.
I pray that you may be active in sharing your faith, so that you will have a full understanding of every good thing we have in Christ.
