“Command those who are rich in this present world…to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share…so that they may take hold of the life that is truly life.” I Timothy 6:17-19

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 teachings, actions and love, the life changing power of Jesus Christ.


I have discovered that the people who believe most strongly in the next life do the most good in the present one.  C. S. Lewis

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

The badge of courage does not require that we walk through something dangerous. It simply requires that we continue to share God's love whenever and wherever we are.  Tom White

If you are in the Riviera Maya and have clothing or commodity contributions for our children, please contact Cherilyn Martin … all items must be sorted and sized before Wednesday delivery. Please strive to make sure all items offered are clean and serviceable.

Give me a stout heart to bear my own burdens. Give me a willing heart to bear the burdens of others. Give me a believing heart to cast all burdens upon Thee, O Lord.  John Baillie

The church is not the way to heaven; the church is the sign that points to heaven.  Adrian Rogers

With the financial help of our members and worldwide Mission Partners Henry, John and Tom were able to purchase and deliver a week’s supply of chicken, molida especial, pork, salchicha, chorizo, sliced turkey, cheese, eggs and a special chocolate surprise to our Christian home. With your financial assistance, Cancun Christian Fellowship purchases and delivers groceries to Casa Hogar para Ninos Esperanza every Wednesday.

We must grasp once again, the idea of church membership as being the membership of the body of Christ and as the biggest honor which can come a man's way in this world.  Martyn Lloyd-Jones

We have finished with the 3rd community bathroom at Casa Hogar para Ninos Esperanza and it looks great. We will show pictures of our work this Sunday. Most of you will appreciate the finished product having seen the condition of the bathroom prior to renovation. The great news is we stayed on budget. Renovation included all new sinks, toilets, fixtures, valves and non-skid tile from front to rear and top to bottom. A special thanks to our generous benefactors that made this renovation possible.

Tough times never last but tough people do.  Robert Schuller

We received great news today…Prince and Kathy will be back on the 5th of October. George and Jean should also be returning the end of October or the first of November.

The word "church" is used one hundred ten times in the New Testament, and it is instructive to note that ninety-three of those are clear references to the local church. ...We may conclude from this large number of references that the Bible has quite a lot to say about the importance of the local church.  Wayne Mack

If you have ideas for Christmas at Casa Hogar para Ninos Esperanza, we would like for you to share them with us. Christmas is less than 90 days away and we need to start planning for the gifts and activities.

A true believer does not perform good works to live - but he lives to perform good works.  William Secker (wow…what a great quote)

We have passed the six month mark in our new facility and we know you will all agree that our father has blessed us with a wonderful place to worship and praise his greatness. It needs to be pointed out that the management of Plaza Tokal is wonderful to work with and the cherry on the pie. It is a win-win situation. Also, the fact that for the first time we now have a Children’s Ministry is another blessing associated with our new facility.

Nothing of spiritual significance comes without sacrifice. Your spirituality will always be measured by the size of your sacrifice.  Jerry Falwell

This week’s pre-church entertainment will again feature Flip Pallot, host of Walker’s Cay Chronicles. We will be showing Flip in Florida fishing in the Herman Lucerne Invitational Fly Fishing Tournament. This is an exciting video and we know you won’t want to miss it. Please join us at 9:20 AM, sit back, relax and enjoy the show. Remember there is an OXXO next door if you need some snacks.

The only way you can serve God is by serving other people. Rick Warren (a personal favorite and words to live by)

Keep George and Jean in your prayers…they are currently traveling in South America.

The Church is not a gallery for the exhibition of eminent Christians, but a school for the education of imperfect ones.  Henry Ward Beecher

The purpose of tithing, found in Deuteronomy 14:22-23 (NLT), is made clear: to “teach you always to love the Lord your God.” By practicing good tithing habits, scripture tells us we are showing God our desire to put him first in our lives.

The story is told of a farmer who was known for his generous giving and whose friends could not understand how he could give so much and yet remain so prosperous. One day a spokesman for his friends said. "We cannot understand you. You give far more than any of the rest of us and yet you always seem to have more to give." "Oh that is easy to explain," the farmer said. "I keep shoveling into God's bin and God keeps shoveling back into mine and God has the bigger shovel." Herbert Lockyer

The Christian Women’s Group meets tomorrow night at California Pizza Kitchen, 6:30 PM. It will be a social meeting giving those in attendance the opportunity to share their summer activity stories, discuss future lessons and catch up on Katherine’s trip to England.

Some people are willing to give the Lord credit but no cash.  Anonymous (another personal favorite)

Laurie Lipp offers a Children’s Bible Study Class each Sunday for children ten and under. The class is held in the showroom at the front of Plaza Tokal. For additional details, please contact Laurie before or after the service. She will be excited to talk to you.

The Kingdom of God is not going to be advanced by our churches becoming filled with men, but by men in our churches becoming filled with God.  Duncan Campbell

We are currently seeking a Mission Partner to lead our Wednesday Men’s Group. If you have the desire, we have the need. Please contact Tom Martin at  / 998-121-1316 for additional information.

We may sometimes think we're a forgotten commodity, but God remembers everyone who serves Him.  Shelton Smith
