BMC Mexico Missions Trip 2018-2019:
Dates: December 28-January 6 Cost: $1500-2000 Value: Priceless
Signup Deadline: September 23rd
Please pray and consider joining the missions team headed to San Carlos, Mexico over the Christmas break. We are looking for people who are willing to lend their skills and abilities in order to encourage various ministries in Mexico. There will be opportunity to do some painting, woodworking and carpentry, yard maintenance and clean up, Children’s ministry, perhaps some evangelism and handing out food hampers, as well as spending some time visiting with and encouraging the staff at Centro Educativo Cristiano and a few other local ministries. We plan to possibly spend some time in the community of Santa Maria where we poured a concrete pad during our last visit in order to help them with continuing work on their church building, as well as Arizpe in the Mountains where Benny who came to speak with us last summer is located. This will be a trip worth more than the money you pay to go. Pray about whether the Lord is asking you to be a part of this mission.
Contact Pastor Gerry Giesbrecht with any questions.

Memory Passage for summer 2018
Isaiah 6: 1 – 8
- In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw the Lord, high and exalted, seated on a throne; and the train of His robe filled the temple.
- Above Him were seraphim; each with six wings: with two wings they covered their faces, with two they covered their feet, and with two they were flying.
- And they were calling to one another, “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord Almighty; the whole earth is full of His glory!”
- At the sound of their voices the doorposts and thresholds shook and the temple was filled with smoke.
- “Woe to me!” I cried. “I am ruined! For I am a man of unclean lips, and I live among a people of unclean lips; for my eyes have seen the King, the Lord Almighty.”
- Then one of the seraphim flew to me with a live coal in his hand, which he had taken with tongs from the altar.
- With it he touched my mouth and said: “See, this has touched your lips; your guilt is taken away, and your sin atoned for.”
- Then I heard the voice of the Lord, saying: “Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?” Then I said, “Here I am, send me.”
