Thursday was a packed day. We met Eric (with Baja Christian Ministries) in Chino, CA, at 6am. He took us to meet with an international youth ministry leader named Israel. Israel takes hundreds of youth across the border into Mexico to do various outreaches in the Baja region. We discussed partnering Fuel International youth with his hispanic youth this summer and doing outreaches together. We enjoyed a Mexican breakfast on the border before we actually crossed into Mexico.

Upon arriving into Mexico, we checked out a possible Christian “ranch” facility for our summer team. Then we met up with Bob and Janet and their team with Baja Christian Ministries. Baja Christian Ministries has a long term goal of building 10,000 homes and leading 1,000,000 people to Jesus and discipling them in the Baja region! In addition to building homes, Baja Christian Ministries brings teams to also build churches and other restoration facilities.
Crossing into Mexico there was no wait at all.
Our team joined with Baja Ministries in front of a church built in ONE day by Baja Christian Ministries and a church from Oregon. Pastor Carlos and Gina are the pastors of this new church plant.
After visiting one of the latest building sites, we did an “impromptu” ministry outreach in one of the neighborhoods. We went door to door inviting everyone to an important meeting. After about 30 minutes, we had a crowd of about 90 children, youth, and adults of all ages waiting eagerly to hear why we were there. The Crosby family and Jerrell all shared their personal testimonies. Dan and “Baja Bob” wrapped it up with a final altar call. About 68 people came forward to accept Jesus as their personal Lord and Savior. ALL of these received a Bible and a discipleship book called “The Purple Book.” The harvest is so ripe…just waiting for someone to reach out and tell them the Good News. Many of these people will be car-pooled to a church a few miles down the road until a church can be planted in this very needy but receptive area.
About 90 people came out in just one neighborhood to hear what we had to say.

We topped the evening off with some delicious Mexican food overlooking the ocean with the company of Bob, Janet, and Eric, some amazing heroes of the faith!
