God's Faithfulness Continues

Saturday we finished up hosting the team from Grace Community Bible Church in Utah and hosted the monthly team from our sending church Horizon Christian Fellowship. All but 2 of the 35 windows were installed and we are close to having the building sealed up and secure. The Horizon team picked up right where the GCBC team left off and also painted the kid's play structure. The Horizon cooking crew brought and prepared an all-american lunch for the GCH kids and staff which included burgers, hot dogs, sausage, chicken, chili and of course, watermelon. Every day the baby home looks a little different as God continues to show himself strong on behalf of this project.


As you can see from the photo, the roof which was delivered a week ago is not yet installed. Please pray for the roofing team led by a man named Chuck who in his heart, wants to see this task through to completion but has been going through some trials in his life. Pray that the roof will get installed but more importantly that through his involvement with the baby home, Chuck would have a personal encounter with God.

Grace Community Bible Church Team

40 faithful high schoolers from GCBC in Sandy, Utah arrived Sunday to spend a week serving at GCH. They have been busy cleaning, painting, digging and building all over the place. It has been a blessing to see these kids fix their eyes on Jesus and then press forward and serve Him in whatever task is assigned. I believe this generation has been set apart as was described by the prophet Joel:

"And it shall come to pass afterward that I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh;  your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions. And also on My menservants and on My maidservants  I will pour out My Spirit in those days."

Roof Arrived Safely

Thanks to your prayers, the roof arrived safely. Thanks to both the trucking company and the customs broker who donated their services. Purchased the skylights today and finished framing the opening in the roof where they will be installed.


PRAY - Pray for the team from Progressive Roofing that will be coming to install the roof.

Final Framing and Roof

Just a few quick updates on the baby home. Many thanks to Jim, Franck, and Rob who came down from Encinitas and completed the last of our internal framing projects. They also began cutting back the rafter tails using a curved design that Rob came up with (see photo). This week is going to be an exciting one as we will be putting the roof on the building.


PRAY - The logistics of getting the metal roof from the factory in LA into Mexico and delivered to the Baby Home in time for the crew that is coming to install it are difficult at best and impossible at worst. But with the Lord, all things are possible. Pray for His mighty hand of blessing over this process.
