The Lonnie file:

An update of the projects Lonnie has been working on:

Casa de Porvenir drug rehab center—They’ve been out there starting the laying out of the buildings and roads. They just had a group come down and help finish up a septic tank and leech lines. They just started their center in August with a couple of guys. At the same time their director Carlos Carrion had just become a full time Mexican missionary. Lonnie warned Carlos that he will work harder and longer than he has ever done before as missionary director. Something Lonnie lives out now with our ministry and is enjoying doing so every day.

Church of Porvenir— New 3,000 gal. septic tank and leech lines. One of the big problems that Mexico has is with their sewer systems. One blessing that Lonnie’s Engineering background has really helped out in is the design and installation of septic tanks. Praises to God after this one is finished it will be the 3rd system built with a 4th system planned to be built later this year.

Children’s Ministry building—Olive Tree ministry just had a group down and we were able to get the plumbing roughed-in and get some detail framing completed in order to start sheet rocking as God provides.

The other day Lonnie was working with William, one of the gentlemen at the Casa de Porvenir drug rehab center and a new Christian. William said usually when he “helps” people they just give him the broom or shovel, Lonnie had him working on the piping and with great appreciation William said that Lonnie was the first guy to teach him as he worked.

It is our privilege to be working here in Ensenada every day in everyday things . . . Where Christ is working in their lives and we do our part to nurture His work. We put our life out to His service even though it may seem non-glamorous. Doing our part so that His will be done - His kingdom be furthered.

Our privilege!
