Without the help of the wonderful churches and individuals who have sacrificed time and finances to come here and partner with us, none of this would have been possible.

Construction teams still needed in Mexico.
Please pray about these opportunities and if God leads you to help in some way, please contact us. Whether you are an experienced construction team or considering a first-time missions trip, we will do our best to fit your abilities and resources with the projects here in order to further the Gospel and bless the people of Mexico. Thank you for your interest in this ministry and may God bless your efforts to reach the world for Jesus.
A large part of the ministry here in Mexico is the construction of new churches and the expansion and renovation of existing structures. US teams from all over the country have joined us in the construction of churches and children’s centers in various cities and towns throughout the Baja Peninsula.
CENTRO CRISTIANO CASA DE LUZ - BAHIA DE LOS ANGELES
May 2002 - Missions Team - First Assembly, Okala, Florida
October 2002 - Missions Team - Church on the Terrace, Ogden, Utah
May 2002, in a little fishing village on the east coast of the Baja pennisula, a new church, Casa de Luz, was born. Until that time, there was no evangelical church within 150 miles. In this little town situated on the bay overlooking 13 small islands, there were only 600 inhabitants. The town had electricity from a generator for only part of each day, water for only 4 hours a week and little phone service. In this place, a beautiful little church was built by two incredible teams from Florida and Utah.

New building for SS classroom, now to be used for daycare ministry
Since its planting, 13 years ago, the church has grown and has become a blessing to the little community. This tiny church has mothered two other missions in little towns that did not have any evangelical church. The missions are about an hour's travel from the church and God is blessing the efforts in these two new missions as well. The little town is growing and now they have 24-hour electricity and even phone service, but water remains at 4 hours a week.
Now, there is a new vision for ministry in Bahia de Los Angeles and that is the vision for a Christian daycare for the children of the village. During the day, while most of the parents are working, the children are either left to their own devices on the streets or must accompany their parents to work. While the village appears quiet and tranquil, there is danger for the children left alone---Drugs are a real problem in the community as boats laden with contraband for the North often land here at the bay. The dream is to build a center for the children to care for them when they are not in school and provide a breakfast and lunch for each child. While there are some working parents who will be able to pay something for the care of their children, there are other working parents who are not equipped to pay and will be helped by the ministry. May 2008, work began on this project and a fence was erected and new bathrooms are under construction. The current need is to finish the daycare facility and equip it for the children, as well as do some additional work on the church building and grounds.

CENTRO CRISTIANO NUEVO AMANACER -Colonia Matamoros, Tijuana
In June 2000, we broke ground for a new church in Colonia Matamoros, which was a new colonia in Tijuana at that time. With the help of 10 incredible MAPS teams, the building was completed in November 2001. The following teams completed this great church in 18 months:
June 2000 - Trinity Assembly from Nicholson, PA
July 2000 - Praise Assembly from North Versailles, PA
Sept 2000 - Living Waters Chapel from Lebanon, PA
Feb 2001 - Westview Church, Palmdale, CA
Mar 2001 - Church on the Terrace from Ogden, UT
April 2001 - Living Waters Chapel from Lebanon, PA
May 2001 - Westview Church, Palmdale, CA
Sept 2001 - Palomar Heights Assembly from San Marcos, CA
Nov 2001 - Faith Christian Center from Bend, OR
In the last 9 years, there have been many transitions in the church and the area around the church has grown tremendously. In October of 2008, we were blessed with the arrival of Pastor Bonifacio to the church. With Pastor Boni has come new life and energy and in just the few short months since his arrival the church has grown and the congregation is infused with a new enthusiasm for service and outreach. The church was badly in need of repair. Our plan is to help this new pastor restore the church building and bring a new face to the ministry in this area.

CENTRO CRISTIANO AGUA VIVA - Colonia Pegaso, Tijuana, Mexico
In 2011, Pastor Antonio Lopez and his wife Martha started a church in a poor colonia in Tijuana, Centro Cristiano Agua Viva. They began meeting in a rented house and have continued to meet in the same location for 3 years. The congregation began growing and soon the little rented building would not hold all of the people at one time, so the adults met indoors, while the children met for services outdoor. The pastors are hard workers and have great vision. They have heart for the chldren of the city. Each Saturday they have a children's program, followed by lunch, for the children in the area of the church. They also provide a program each week in an even poorer area of the city, where they also feed an even larger group of children each week.
The congregation has .been working hard. They soon purchased a piece of land near the little rented building they were using. They began work on the constructiion of a new church that will accommodate 220 people. They were able to complete several rows of block for the walls by working a little each week and it was at that poiint that we committed to help this pastor and his congregation with the construction of their new church building.. .
Their vision is great. They hope to purchase the adjacent lot in order to build a kitchen and feeding center. The new church is located across the street from the local public elementary school. Their dream is to have a children's feeding program at the church that will allow them to provide breakfasts each day before school for the children living in this poor colonia.

MISION EBENEZER FEEDING CENTER - Colonia Altiplano, Tijuana, Mexico
In a dusty area on the outskirts of Tijuana, stands Mision Ebenezer, a little church who is reaching out to the children of their community. Pastor Martin and his wife Rosario started this church 10 years ago and, from the beginning, their vision has been to reach out to the children. It was not long before they realized that the children in this area had many needs, one of which was nourishing food. For this reason, they began a program of feeding the children of the community from their home kitchen and the church.
They have continued feeding the children in this way through the years, but their dream is for a greater outreach to the children. They also began a weekly children's program in an even poorer area and feed those children as well. Their heart is to not only continue with their weekly program for the children, but to also be able to feed the children a hot meal every day.
Pastor Martin's vision is to have a permanent place to feed the children and to be able to minister to them in all areas of their lives. For years they have been working toward that goal. A couple of years ago, the church bought the lot adjacent to the little church and have worked hard to pay it off. This is the beginning of Pastor Martin's dream being fulfilled. Our dream is to help him with his dream. June 2016, we broke ground for the foundation of the new center. Praise God!
