Mission in Mexico with Recovery Ministries

But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ. Ephesians 2:13
A Testimony from *Alice - a Celebrate Recovery participantI am a believer who is in recovery and struggles with smoking and other character defects such as anger, depression and hopelessness. Prior to coming to Celebrate Recovery I was embarrassed about my smoking and character defects because I really wanted to serve God and help others in the recovery program.
I come from a dysfunctional home which included alcoholism and extreme poverty. I am a rape and kidnapping survivor. Living through these nightmares I thought that God had abandoned me similar to my earthly father. I intentionally hurt myself, was very promiscuous, drank alcohol and stored up anger and hatred in my heart. I was bitter and did not want to accept Jesus or go to church.
By God’s grace I am on the road to recovery. I had to admit that I needed help – this is the first step, the second is to believe that God CAN restore me and third, to make a decision to turn my life and my will over to God’s care. Has it been easy? NO! It takes time and hard work. I am learning and applying the 12 steps. It has been hard for me to forgive but nothing is impossible with God’s help.

My favorite bible verse is:
¨Have I not commanded You? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid, do not be discouraged, for the LORD, your God will be with you wherever you go.¨ Joshua 1:9

I’m not where I would like to be yet, but one day … with God’s help and the support of my small group … one day.

Thank you for letting me share.*Alice's name has been changed to protect her identity.
In January, Angel and Cinthia joined our CR Step Studies, Large Group meetings and monthly training so they could be trained up to launch Celebrate Recovery in their home church. We are very excited to see how God will use this couple within the Recovery Ministry of their church. It is an honor to witness the third CR program launch out from Calvary Chapel Rosarito to other local churches.

Armando Gonzalez is a member of Calvary Chapel Rosarito and is a part of their church planting program.

Once he has completed the church planting program Armando will be heading into an area of Tijuana to plant his own church. His desire is to be able to offer the Celebrate Recovery program at his church.
May was such an amazing month. "Our Girls" on the inside of the Ensenada Prison completed their Celebrate Recovery Step Studies. So, that meant it was time to party and celebrate their achievements. Our team hosted the graduation event on May 7.
A Canadian friend, Debra Robertson, shared her life story of God's redeeming love and how He brought her out of a life that included violence and alcohol.*GeeGee, one of "Our Girls" from the inside, shared her story of how God rescued her from a life involving drug dealers and violence. Praise the Lord she has surrendered her life to Christ. Sharing her testimony and seeing her transformation was inspiring.

Both stories of redemption left each of us in awe of God's mercy and grace in our lives when we surrender everything to Him.

*GeeGee's name has been changed to protect her identity.

WELCOME VERONICA!!We have a new Prison Ministry team member. Veronica attended her first Prison Ministry event so she could meet "Our Girls" on the inside. What an honor it is for us to have you on our team. May God bless you as you reach out to "Our Girls" on the inside.
One evening in May a group of Celebrate Recovery Leaders met for dinner. What a wonderful time of fellowship with a great group of servant leaders.
We praise God for allowing us the opportunity to serve His people in the Recovery Ministry. We have had a great start to 2018 and we look forward to more amazing months ahead of us.

Thank you for coming alongside us, for supporting us and for praying for us.
The reason we do what we do:Isaiah 61:1 The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me, because the Lord has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners,
2 Corinthians 12:9a But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.”
