Our Mission: We are servants of God by serving others. We share a responsibility to bring God's love to hurting people. We are an outreach fellowship of believers dedicated to showing the people of the Yucatan Peninsula, through our teaching, actions and love, the life changing power of Jesus Christ.
If you are considering a commodity donation to Casa Hogar para Ninos Esperanza, here are some items that are currently needed:
1. Milk & Eggs
2. Children’s clothes and shoes (any size-any gender)
3. Twin Size Blankets (winter is here)
Lance is back. For that Lance Price lover in you, for the next several Sundays, Lance will be offering our spiritual message at Community of Faith Church Cancun’s English Service. We have previewed the first message and you will not be disappointed.
If you are vacationing or living in the Riviera Maya, we invite you to attend our Sunday Service. We are a non-denominational, Bible based Christian church that offers exceptional lessons, a warm and friendly congregation and a strong and meaningful Mission Outreach program. We are the oldest English speaking Christian church in Cancun.
If you are in Cancun and have a clothing donation for our children, contact Cherilyn for sorting, sizing and Wednesday delivery. Please make sure all items donated are clean and serviceable. Currently, we especially need clothing for young girls ages 6-11.
What a great group in church this past Sunday including guests and new members. Speaking of new members, TJ spoke on bringing new members into our Christian family. It is a topic we should all be giving serious consideration to.
For the past several newsletters, we have requested that our Mission Partners email us pictures of themselves and their families. We want to add a new Mission Partner gallery page to our website. Either no one is reading the newsletter OR no one wants to send a picture. We promise we will not use your names in the gallery…we simply want the world to see your smiling faces. We are very grateful for your assistance and we want to share our joy with others. Someone has to be the first to send a picture…why not let it be you?
We are currently working on the Christmas service with a great lesson and appropriate traditional seasonal music. Christmas Day falls on Sunday this year and we are planning a Christmas Day service at the usual time and we hope as many of you as possible will attend. Want a great way to start your Christmas Day festivities…join your Cancun Christian family in praise and celebration.
We have been blessed with financial donations to benefit our children at Casa Hogar para Ninos Esperanza. We are always grateful for the assistance we receive from our worldwide mission partners. Recent donations include:

We want to thank all Mission Partners and church members for their continuing contributions and support. In addition to our weekly expenses for food and sundries, in the month of December we will be providing Christmas joy for sixteen children and four adults. We absolutely could not do it without you.
As many of you know, last Sunday was Katy and Prince’s last Cancun family Sunday for a while. Please join me in praying for their safe return in mid January. Our service is never the same without them.
Now for really happy news, we have been contacted by Mike and Heidi from the US and they are planning a Cancun wedding in February, 2012. They will be attending our church service during their visit and all members are invited to their wedding ceremony offered by Tom in Puerto Morelos. We will give you more details at a later date.
With the financial help of our worldwide Mission Partners, this past week, volunteers from Cancun Christian Fellowship were able to provide a week’s supply of eggs, cheese (yellow and white), chicken, chorizo, pork, ham and turkey lunchmeat, hotdogs and milk to our Cancun Christian home. Groceries are purchased and delivered every Wednesday. If you would like to make a donation to our Casa Hogar Food Fund, please contact Cherilyn or Tom.
If you have ideas on ways to improve our Sunday service, please share them with us…we are listening. Your thoughts are important to us.
Christmas day is getting closer and we continue to plan for the children’s Christmas at Casa Hogar, our Cancun Christian home. We want this year’s activities to be even better than last and we are asking for your ideas and financial assistance. You can sponsor a child’s Christmas joy with a $50.00 donation (and we could really use your help). Anna has volunteered her children’s face painting services for the Christmas decoration party (a real child pleaser). More details will follow soon. To see last year’s Christmas activities, go to www.cancunchristianfellowship.com and click on the gallery. We could also use your help at the Casa Hogar Christmas Party. To volunteer, contact Tom or Cherilyn.
That’s it for today…WE HOPE TO SEE YOU SUNDAY!!!
