When: March 24-30
What: a 30 person team from Evangel building three homes in Mexico in partnership with our church down there! Very exciting!
Team Leaders: Derek and Julie Waldon, who will be hosting a booth at Mission Vision this weekend. Stop by and say hi!!
We have raised almost $11,000 to date for the home builds! This covers all the basics for the houses (building materials). We'd like to see another $4k come in over the next few weeks for furnishings and little extras like cupboards full of food. You can give right here on the website, or anytime at Evangel.
This Sunday at 12:30pm we'll be hosting a fund-raising dinner - Taco's in a Bag! Going to be an awesome time of hanging out and supporting the trip. Hope to see you then!
For anyone whose interested in a look at some of the recent trips Evangel Ventures has taken into Mexico, here are a couple videos.

Impact is heading back to India in just a few months! I joined them last year, and have never been so challenged, impacted and changed then during the 13 days spent in the country.
"For 12 incredible days, you will be on the front lines, demonstrating both the compassion and the power of God to people in desperate need. You will feed and minister to those who live their whole lives on the sidewalks of Vizag. In the villages, you will encounter people who have never heard the name of Jesus. You will pray for people on the streets and in homes. You will be part of a team that brings God’s Kingdom through mobile medical and dental clinics & public health education. Each evening, the village will gather as we tell them about the love of Jesus and pray for the sick. As has happened in every village we have ever entered in India, people will be healed, miracles will happen, and many hearts will turn to Jesus."
Calling all medical volunteers!! Although a medical background is not a requirement for joining this Journey, we are in specific need of a few more medical personnel to run the clinics most efficiently.
Come with us and get ready to be changed, to experience the Kingdom of God, and to pour out and bless so many!

On November 11-17, Evangel will send a team to Vicente Guerrero, Mexico, to build a church. While the team is rapidly forming even as we speak, there's still opportunity if you or someone you know would like to get in on the action. The build itself should take roughly 4-5 days, with travel time on top of that. Cost is approximately $300 for the week, including transportation from San Diego (hello?). Your flights from here to there are additional. This will be the trip of a lifetime, as you are used by God to do some serious power-moves for the Kingdom. Sweet!
This morning I read (or rather looked at) one of my favourite blogs, the Big Picture. And ran smack into the heart of God for the people in this remote, war-ravaged place called Chechnya. What does a guy do with this stuff? Each photo seemed to put flesh and blood on a people that up to now have remained distant from me. They are real. And they desperately need the message of the Gospel. And I feel God's heart-beat.
Of all the pictures we snapped over the week in Vicente Gurerro, this one ranks among my favourite because of the two central subjects of the photo:
