Jesus is the Reason for the Season!
Matthew 25:40 The King will reply, 'Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.'
Our Mission: We honor 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 actions and love, the life changing power of Jesus Christ.
Our Mission Outreach

Somehow, not only for Christmas, but all the long year long, the joy that you give to others is the joy that comes back to you. John Greenleaf Whittier
This is really great news. We have located the shoes we want to purchase as Christmas gifts for the residents of CIDA Leona Vicario and we feel they are in our budget. We have also decided on the Christmas dinner menu at CIDA and we are putting the pencil to the numbers. For us, this is really exciting and fun and what better way to honor God by serving others.
The giving of gifts is not something man invented. God started the giving spree when he gave a gift beyond words, the unspeakable gift of His Son. Robert Flatt
Clayton and Karen, new Mission Partners from Iowa, visited our church and then joined us on Tuesday to purchase and deliver supplies for CIDA. They also furnished our Mission Outreach with toothbrushes and vitamins for the residents of CIDA. An interesting observation, when we arrived, a CIDA resident was wearing a toothbrush around his neck so he would not lose it. Thank you, we are happy you have joined our Cancun Christian family.
What do you have in your hand? Perhaps you, like Moses, feel that you have nothing with which you can serve God. But think about what your neighbors need. Maybe you can help them with whatever is in your hand. Maybe that is exactly what they need. Dick Nieusma
We have the absolute best Mission Partners in the world and we have been blessed with gifts to benefit our Christian Mission Outreach. Recent gifts include:

“I wish we could put up some of the Christmas spirit in jars and open a jar of it every month.” Harlan Miller

You are invited to join us on December 21st at CIDA in Leona Vicario. Cherie and I will get there around 2:00 PM and start cooking and we plan on serving around 4:00 PM. CIDA is very easy to find. You simply take the Merida Highway (Lopez Portillo, the Libre to Merida). As you enter Leona Vicario, there is a Pemex station on your right…CIDA is 200 feet further on your left. The facility is white and blue and well marked with high walls and a large parking lot in front. We hope you will join us and have fun serving others.
Where there is faith, there is love; Where there is love, there is peace; Where there is peace, there is God; And where there is God; there is no need. Leo Tolstoy
Usha continues to broadcast her weekly commitment to Christ. If you missed it earlier, here is her link so you can follow her on your computer.
The Son of God became a man to enable men to become the sons of God. C.S.Lewis
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.
