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.

“Every man is a missionary, now and forever, for good or for evil, whether he intends or designs it or not. He may be a blot radiating his dark influence outward to the very circumference of society, or he may be a blessing spreading benediction over the length and breadth of the world. But a blank he cannot be: there are no moral blanks; there are no neutral characters.” Thomas Chalmers


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

It’s what you learn after you know it all that counts. ~Chip Foose

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.

Having a place to go is a home. Having someone to love is a family. Having both is a blessing. ~Donna Hedges

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

The thing about family disasters is that you never have to wait long before the next one puts the previous one into perspective. ~Robert Brault

We visited with Pastor Mancilla and Esther last week and discussed the next remodeling project for Casa Hogar para Ninos Esperanza. They were extremely complimentary of all work completed. We determined that instead of remodeling two of the downstairs bathrooms we would remodel the remaining three. It is the Pastor’s intent to move some of the older girls upstairs to separate them from the younger children and, of course, they would need their own bathroom. When the project is completed we will have remodeled all four bathrooms, the kitchen, pantry, serving area, upstairs dorm room, adjacent meeting and work facility, replaced screens and doors and installed a septic system that really, actually works. We currently have financial commitments to remodel two of the remaining three bathrooms and we are absolutely positive our Father will provide for the completion of the project.

Call it a clan, call it a network, call it a tribe or call it a family. Whatever you call it, whoever you are, you need one. ~Jane Howard

This Sunday, Community of Faith Cancun will be offering unique Easter music and a special Easter message. Please join us in our magnificent new location on Yaxchilan to celebrate the resurrection of our Savior. It will not be the same without you.

When you look at your life, the greatest happinesses are family happinesses. ~Joyce Brothers

If you belong to a church mission or small group that is searching for a Christian Mission Outreach to partner with, we want to talk to you. We always have small two to five day projects at Casa Hogar para Ninos Esperanza that are perfect for mission groups with limited time and resources. We will help you plan your trip and work beside you at the home. You will have the opportunity to attend our church service and small groups and meet our people.

You don't choose your family. They are God's gift to you, as you are to them. ~Desmond Tutu

Let your words be the genuine picture of your heart. ~John Wesley

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 one.

1. Understand Your Own Faith:  Understanding the basics of your Christian faith can go a long way in easing your fears of sharing the gospel. Christians that have a clear vision of what they believe find it easier to share their faith with the people around them. Before you start witnessing to others, be sure you know what you believe and why you believe it. Sometimes even writing it down can make it all clearer.

Family life is a bit like a runny peach pie - not perfect but who's complaining? ~Robert Brault

What greater thing is there for human souls than to feel that they are joined for life - to be with each other in silent unspeakable memories. ~George Eliot
