Our Mission: We are servants of God by serving others. We share a responsibility to bring God's love to hurting people. We are a Christian Mission Outreach dedicated to showing people, through our teaching, actions and love, the life changing power of Jesus Christ.


Life is short, God's way of encouraging a bit of focus. ~Robert Brault

If you are considering a commodity contribution to Casa Hogar para Ninos Esperanza, here are items that are currently needed:
1. Children’s clothes and shoes (any size-any gender)
2. Clothes for young ladies ages 6-11
3. Games and crafts in Spanish

Don't be fooled by the calendar. There are only as many days in the year as you make use of. ~Charles Richards

If you are in the Riviera Maya and have a clothing contribution for our children, please contact Cherilyn Martin for sorting, sizing and Wednesday delivery. Please strive to make sure all items offered are clean and serviceable.

As you grow older, you'll find the only things you regret are the things you didn't do. ~Zachary Scott

With the financial help of our worldwide Mission Partners, volunteers from Cancun Christian Fellowship were able to provide eggs, cheese, molida especial, pork, salchicha and chicken to our Cancun Christian home. Groceries are purchased and delivered every week.

I'm less interested in why we're here. I'm wholly devoted to while we're here. ~Erika Harris

We are very blessed to continue to have Sunday guests in church. Don’t ever forget that they have a choice of how they spend their Sunday morning in Cancun. Please welcome them and treat them like long lost family.

Current and Upcoming Activities:
We have now nailed down all the details and the second upstairs bathroom renovation will begin the first week in May. Our contractor, Brian Schaefer, assures us his crew will be on site chipping tile and taking out toilets, sinks and plumbing. The project should take about 5 days and we are excited to have the opportunity to be able to complete another project that benefits our beautiful children.

How we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives. ~Annie Dillard (our favorite)

Our lesson for this Sunday will be on “Living in Victory” by Dr. Damon Shook. It is a great lesson and the last in Damon’s series.

Use your health, even to the point of wearing it out. That is what it is for. Spend all you have before you die; do not outlive yourself. ~George Bernard Shaw

This week’s pre-church fishing video will feature the Captain Blair Wiggins from Addictive Fishing searching for Tarpon in the Florida Keys. As always, there is enough fishing action to please even the diehard angler. Join us at 9:25 AM, relax and enjoy the show.

You will never find time for anything. If you want time you must make it. ~Charles Buxton

The Great Commission - A Personal Instruction
Matthew 28:16-20: 16 Then the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain where Jesus had told them to go. 17 When they saw him, they worshiped him; but some doubted. 18 Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

The Great Commission is one of the most significant passages in the Holy Bible. First, it's the last recorded personal instruction given by Jesus to His disciples. Second, it's a special calling from Jesus Christ to all His followers to take specific action while on this earth. We have identified five principles of Christian Evangelism that we would like for you to consider. This week we will look at principle four.

4. Set Limits
Again, planting a seed is an important part of witnessing. Avoid being a Christian that has to see a result, because you could become one of those argumentative witnesses that think they can "debate" someone into the Kingdom. Instead set goals and limits for your discussion. It helps to know your audience or practice conversations. This way you will know how to answer tough questions and be prepared to walk away from a discussion before it becomes a shouting match. You will be amazed at how many of those seeds you plant flourish over time.

When your life flashes before your eyes, make sure you've got plenty to watch. ~Author unknown

Prayer List: Please pray for the health of Leonard Kelly in Indiana. Leonard is a friend to many and a relative to several members of our church. His friends and family truly need your prayers.

What to do with your one life? The same thing you would do if you had two lives, and this was the second. ~Robert Brault
