Church Family in Mexico

 

The first week of August my sending church, St. Albert Alliance, sent out 32 people to serve in Mexico in a variety of ways. Most of the team labored in East Tijuana in a community called Las Delicias pouring cement for a church building. This team was filled with ongoing energy and joy. They ended their week of ministry by hosting a special sports and games event in a local park and I might say, they attracted quite a crowd. I am honored to be a part of this church family.

 St. Albert Alliance team members Melissa, Arlene, Cindy and Sherry joined our Prison Ministry team in hosting a craft event with “Our Girls” on the inside of the Ensenada Prison. Melissa shared a beautiful message about the Father’s Love Letter, Sherry shared her powerful testimony and Arlene and Cindy used their special abilities to serve wherever needed.

Lulu, one of “Our Girls” from the inside gifted us with her story of redemption. She had been involved with the cartel and now she is serving 26 years due to her involvement in homicide. She was a Santa Muerte worshipper that did not know God. Lulu was bored so decided to attend Celebrate Recovery to get out of her cell. It didn’t take long for her to make the decision to give her heart to Jesus. Today she boldly professes her faith in Jesus and is grateful for finding healing from her hurts, habits and hang-ups. It was an encouragement for all of us to hear her story about God’s redeeming love in her life. After the event each inmate returned to their cells with a beautiful craft, gift bags full of toiletries, tummies full of delicious food and hearts filled with encouragement.

God is so patient. When I am feeling down or discouraged, He speaks! Let me share with you a quote from my Life Application Bible that spoke volumes into my life. “Endurance is not a common quality. Many people lack the long term commitment, caring and willingness that are vital to sticking with the task against all odds.” God will use whatever possible to speak to us, to guide and lead us in a direction where we can use our gifts and talents for His glory. His love for us is so amazing. I am thankful for the many family and friends that continue to pray for me and the Recovery Ministry. Pray for myself and my team members in the areas of commitment, wisdom and endurance as we continue to serve the broken around us.

Please continue to pray for my mom as she goes through Immunol therapy at the Cross Cancer Clinic. I was able to spend a couple weeks with family, celebrating my mom's 81st birthday in September. Spending time with family and friends is a great gift filled with precious memories. During my time in Canada I was able to share about the Recovery Ministry at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church in Stony Plain. I was choked up as I spoke about the Recovery Ministry and shared the video Rod often presented when we visited churches together. Recovery Ministry Promo Video

Thank you one and all for your ongoing prayers and financial support of the Recovery Ministry. This year twelve of our Celebrate Recovery leaders went to the Celebrate Recovery Summit at Saddleback Church. Where did the funding come from you might ask? From the many that sent in a financial donation rather than flowers for Rod’s Celebrate of Life. Thank you for helping train our Celebrate Recovery leaders. Each of you is a treasure, an important asset to our Recovery Ministry team.

In His Grip, Cheryl Hoople
