Missionary José Luís Gonzales

Jose Luis is a product of our Youth Ministry. He attended a Youth With A Mission (YWAM) Discipleship Training School (DTS) in Mazatlan last fall. While he was there, he felt the Lord calling him to missions and the Lord opened a door for him to retrun to Mazatlan as a staff member for YWAM. On June 1, Jose Luis was prayed for and sent out from the Cofradia church as our first full-time Missionary. Here is his first newsletter. If you would like to be added to his contact list, please let me know and I will give him your email.

Hello, I hope that you are doing well. I’m writing you from my home in Cofradía, Nayarit, México where I feel very blessed for having learned so many things about God this past year. My purpose for writing you is that I want to share with you a personal need.

Last year I attended a Discipleship Training School (DTS) with Youth With A Mission (YWAM) in Mazatlán, México. During that time, I learned a number of things; one of which was in my relationship with God. My relationship with Him was not very good and while I was in Mazatlán, I was able to experience how to listen to the voice of God and learn about His character. Now I know better how to have a stronger relationship of obedience to Him. God has given me a greater desire to share His love to other people who don’t know Him.
During the outreach phase of the school, I had the opportunity to go to Tunisia, Africa. God spoke to me there about what He really wants from me. He told me to return as a member of the Staff in YWAM Mazatlán because I will be able to take greater steps towards Him in being responsible in my relationship with Him, in my personal life, and without a doubt I will grow in Leadership. This is something that I’m really excited about.

While I am in Mazatlán on Staff, I will have a financial need of $350 (usdollars) a month. Today, I am asking you to join my support team with financial donations and prayer. Please take a moment and ask God how much you could donate monthly or with a special gift. By doing this, you will be ministering along side me to the students who come to attend YWAM Mazatlán. Thank you so much for your consideration of becoming part of my support and prayer team and may God bless you!

Your Missionary,

José Luís Gonzáles Linares
