José Luís' Newsletter

José Luis is our missionary from Cofradía working with YWAM in Mazatlán, México.  He is involved in a skate ministry, Homes of Hope, helps with maintenance of base, as well as numerous other ministry opportunities that come up.  We are proud of José Luís as he has followed God's call on his life to a tough situation--especially financially.  I remember the day he accepted the Lord in one of our youth meetings here in Cofradía.  After a few years of being part of our youth group, worship band, and student leadership team, he went to Mazatlán to be a missionary.  If you would like to help him financially, send me an email or comment and I'll get you the information needed.   

YWAM Mazatlán--April

I hope that everyone is doing well.  I write to share with you a little of what I have been doing.  The whole month of March we were building houses with “Homes of Hope.”  We were very busy and it’s exciting to be a part of what God is doing in the outskirts of Mazatlán.  I’ve been working a lot in the maintenance of the Mazatlán YWAM base.

Also, April was very fun as we were working with some youth from some of the churches here in Mazatlán during Holy Week.  We had a Youth Camp for a whole week as we were divided into teams to do service tasks such as give out lemonade, free hugs, picking up garbage, and giving balloons to children.  More than anything, it was a very cool time as we were serving and sharing the gospel to people on the beach enjoying Holy Week.  Sometimes, people would ask us why we were doing these things and we responded, “we are doing it for God; we want to serve you because we love you and we love God.”

Even though we did not see many salvations, the people were open to what we shared with them and the seed was left planted for God to work in each one of them.

Thank you also for your prayers, financial support, and for being part of this group of pioneers.

God bless you and I will be praying for you all.

Thanks to everyone!

José Luís González
