Please note: Community of Faith Church services are moving to Hotel B2B behind the Bull Fight Arena this week (November 7th). We will be meeting in room B1 and the service will begin at 10:00 AM. We feel the room will be much more “user friendly” and we absolutely KNOW the acoustics will be better. We are doing a “dry run service” to make sure we are ready to go this Sunday.
Our very own Juliette donated a case of milk to Casa Hogar para Ninos Esperanza and asked that we deliver it this Wednesday. Thanks bunches Juliette.
New mission partners Joe and Grace Holland made a welcomed financial donation this week. The funds were used to purchase two cases of milk that were delivered today. The Holland’s confidence in our mission activity and financial support is greatly appreciated. Welcome to our mission family!
Cancun Christian Fellowship donated and delivered four kilos of ground beef, five kilos of chicken, five kilos of pork, three pallets of eggs and five boxes of lunchbox size snacks to Casa Hogar para Ninos Esperanza today.
We can't change the hearts of people, but can do what's in our hands and hearts, by sharing God's perfect love with others and letting that love be expressed in our behavior.
At the close of church last Sunday, we discussed the changes made in the Sunday service and the response was lively. We will be running the new service format for several weeks and then we are looking for feedback on the changes and/or additional changes you would like to see.
I received a surprise email last week from Carolyn Pfennig, our newest mission partner in the United States. The Pfennigs are on our mailing list and Carolyn informed me that she had purchased all the plastic mattress covers needed for the younger children at the orphanage. She will be shipping them to us in the next few days. Thank you so very much Carolyn. The covers WILL make a huge difference in the ongoing health of the children.
TJ continues to post updated information about our church and our ongoing mission activity on chat boards around Cancun. As TJ wrote me, “Every little bit helps”. If you visit chat boards dealing with life in Cancun, please take a lead from TJ and tell others about the church, what we are doing and extend an invitation to join us. You never know who you will touch.
The men’s group is presently studying Evangelism, Witnessing, Testimony and Discipleship and what God expects us of us as Christians. It is our responsibility to tell others about the life changing power of a relationship with Jesus.
"As soon as a man has found Christ, he begins to find others." Charles Spurgeon
TJ picked up and delivered two more bicycles to the orphanage today. One was a small girl’s bicycle and the other was a small boy’s bicycle. TJ is doing his best to keep all bicycles in working order and his efforts are appreciated.
Website Update: Our website and Blog continues to gain readership. We feel that most views are from people that we mailed mission requests to. Here is the way it breaks down:
August: 83 Views
September: 111 Views
October: 127 Views
With viewers from: US, Canada, Argentina, China, UK, Colombia, New Zealand, Australia, Finland, Japan, Slovenia, Denmark, Mexico, Israel, South Africa and Russia. It’s just a matter of time!
The best way to find yourself, is to lose yourself in the service of others.
If you have a non-food donation (clothing, toys, books, games etc) please bring the item(s) and give them to Cherilyn or Laurie for sorting and distribution. It will allow us to make better use of donated items.
Of course, food items should always be delivered on Wednesday. If you take a food donation to the orphanage, please send us an email telling us what you donated. It will keep us from duplicating your donation and allow us to put funds in other needed food areas. If you want to make a food donation but do not have time to go to the orphanage, we will be happy to deliver your donation for you on Wednesday.
If you were not in church Sunday, we missed you. Remember, church now starts at 10:00 AM. We hope to see all of you Sunday. Tom
