Cancun Christian Fellowship Newsletter 4/13/2011


I worship you Lord! You did not enter your holy city Jerusalem on the back of a war horse, but humbly and on a donkey. You knew that you were surrounded by murderers, yet you came in peace, and by your sacrifice you would utterly conquer death before the week had passed. You, oh Lord, are blessed and worthy of my praise. You have saved your people. I say, "You are my king!"... I long to live in the city where you sit on the throne! Establish your Kingdom, so that your people can live in peace. Jesus, I bow before you, and I will sing your praises until your Kingdom comes and is established, and forever after. David Maddalena

If you are considering a commodity donation to Casa Hogar para Ninos Esperanza, here are some items that are currently needed:
1. Milk / Cheese / Eggs
2. Children’s clothes and shoes (any size-any gender)
3. Diapers Size Jumbo
4. Baby clothes for a very young lady

This Sunday is Palm Sunday and the sermon will be delivered by Pastor Mike McClenahan with Solana Beach Presbyterian Church, Solana Beach, California. And, of course, next Sunday is Easter Sunday and the sermon will be delivered by Pastor Ed Young with Second Baptist Church, Houston, Texas. Special music will be offered Easter Sunday.

Easter Blessings go out to Prince and Kathy Turner, Gary and Marti Mason, Heather and Danny Martinez, Matt and Monette Chain, Harold and Tracy Chapman (along with their extended family), Jack Thomas, Lory Kelly and all other members of our Christian family that are in our hearts but will not in attendance for our Easter service. We wish you were here!

Please join us in extending a Very Special “Thank You” to Katherine Phillips of all she does to make our Sunday service more enjoyable. Katherine is a pleasure to work with and really adds a lot of joy to everything she does.

We wave palms because we have long awaited God's deliverance and now we're within 7 days of it. We wave palms because Jesus shows us life-saving answers when we feel crushed by problems threatening to overcome us. We wave palms because Jesus has set us free from the destructive longings of our fallen nature. We wave palms because, like the pilgrims who came to Jerusalem and gave thanks for their healing by Jesus, we too can really be healed in body, mind, and spirit. Kevin Gray

Volunteers from Cancun Christian Fellowship purchased and delivered eggs, pork, milk, chicken and beef to our Christian home this week.

If you have not looked at the new pictures on the website, please do so. Every page of the website ( contains interesting photos of your Christian family and Mission Partners serving God by serving others.

TJ, Henry and Tom seem to have standing dinner plans in Cancun every Thursday night. If you would like to join their dinner circle, please contact Tom Martin for time and location details. Dinner topics for discussion are usually very interesting. It’s also a lot of fun to watch Henry’s face when the waiter brings the bill.

Practically everyone has known the taste of Palm Sunday, the sweetness of success and popularity, and nearly all of us have tasted the bitterness of Good Friday, of failure and rejection. What saves us from an endless round of ups and downs, what frees us from the tyranny of events over which we have no control is our commitment to press forward in obedience to God. It is to trust in God's love to bring about Easter morning, knowing that the meaning of life is to be found in the knowledge and love of God. It is also in sharing that knowledge and love with those who accompany us on the way. Rev. Richard J. Fairchild

Trish Gonzalez and her family furnished milk and clothes for our Cancun Christian home this week. Last week, we found out that Trish and her daughters were moving to California so the girls could attend school there. They have been attending our church for six years and we are going to miss them.

Ryan, Laurie and the boys furnished diapers for Casa Hogar Para Ninos Esperanza this week. A special thanks to the Lipps for all they do for our children.

As reported last week, we are currently working on a long range, continuous plan for Mission Partners to come to Cancun and assist us with renovations to Casa Hogar. We now have two Mission Partners that have expressed a sincere interest in being the first to join us in our work. Several different ideas are currently being explored.

We are again looking for a legal size locking filing cabinet for Casa Hogar para Ninos Esperanza. If you have one or know where we can purchase one at a reasonable price, please contact Tom Martin.

Without the way, there is no going; without the truth, there is no knowing; without the life, there is no living. John 14:6

We are again extending an invitation to join our Mission Group welcoming committee at Casa Hogar. Don’t look at it as a chore. It is actually a lot of fun and you don’t know what you are missing. Cherilyn and Tom receive a tremendous amount of joy from the events and we know you will too. You will meet many very nice people and begin forming lasting relationships while serving God by serving others. It is a WIN WIN invitation.

A Wednesday Men’s Group is offered by Cancun Christian Fellowship. Please contact Tom Martin at or 998-121-1316 for additional information. The men’s group is presently studying the last week in the life of our Savior.
