Casa de Dios - Los Planes, BCS, MX

We have had a wonderful ongoing partnership with the Baptist Church in Los Planes, BCS, MX. We have been working with Pastor Juan Carlos and the church family to help them build a new church. The church has been a major influence in what we would consider a poor community where they are providing hope to so many who are struggling to get by. They are providing children's programs, weekly bible studies, Sunday worship and helping with food and clothing distribution as they receive donations.

The church has been slowly built over the past 6 years, and ABCOPAD churches have been supporting mission teams working at the church since 2015. Currently, the church is meeting in renovated area which is the stage of the church sanctuary. The area was enclosed and air-conditioned about a year ago.

The need? The church has been growing like wild fire and they have outgrown their space and need to finish the main sanctuary as soon as possible. The cost of the materials will be roughly $6,500, with other needed labor and miscellaneous costs being about $3000. So the total cost will be roughly $10,000.00 to complete the roof, ceiling, windows, and doors.

The plan -
Week 1 - The roof will go up with needed help from skilled contractors. (Welding)
Week 2 - Continue finishing the roof and begin work on the ceiling to wire lights and start drywalling.
Week 3 - Continue drywalling the ceiling and install windows.

Rancho El Camino - A Christian camp run outside of La Paz that serves some of the poorest of the poor communities in La Paz. Last year, during Covid pandemic, the camp supported 80 families with weekly meals. As the camp's summer program restarts, they will see up to 100 children in each week. They also run school programs to help students complete high school through online learning. We will help to support them by finishing different projects on the property such as landscaping, light construction, and painting.

Kids Up Horse Ministry - We will have the opportunity to help with the horse ministry that serves young children with disabilities. Volunteers who help with this ministry will assist in interactive riding experiences with young children, have opportunity to feed and clean the horses, and possibly take horses for excursions through the desert for their needed exercise.

Internal Solutions Ministry - We will have opportunity to serve in local schools to help with English speaking classes for older students. Also, we will have opportunity to participate in school activities such as play, and arts & crafts.

Baptist Seminary - We are hoping to help and provide pastoral training in week 3 of our trip by participating in a study lecture series at the Baptist Seminary. We we will be asking for pastors to participate in sharing about church life. Possible topics could be effective ways to lead a congregation, how to develop a small group system, and best practices for reaching teens with the Gospel. This will most likely become an open dialogue for pastors to learn and grow from each other. There is much we can learn from our south-of-the-border Baptist pastors and lay people.
