Baja Compassion Doings
Church for the Deaf
Mexican sign language (LSM) is different than American sign language (ASL) - you knew that right? Pastor Carlos has finished teaching Galatians and is starting in Jonah. He purchased DVD with Jonah in LSM to pass out to his congregation. When you consider that many have difficulty reading (Spanish is their second language, after all) if they know how to read at all - you can see what a blessing this is!
Carlos with Presidential Candidate
“Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves,
for the rights of all who are destitute.
Speak up and judge fairly;
defend the rights of the poor and needy.”
Pastor Carlos has been following this command for many years now, taking an active interest in rights for the deaf. Recently he was able to stand up with the Mexican presidential candidate, Kiko Vega, for the deaf community!
Lonnie in Mexico and Honduras
We recently were blessed with a productive trip from a trip to Tijuana, Mexico where we built a staircase and furthered the construction on the Disciples House at Paul Alvarado’s (with Spectrum MInistries) residence. Currently we are planning a trip to Santa Barbara, Honduras in June/July of this year. Our plan is to help teach the older Orphans construction skills while leading the visiting work group with their projects. Please help us pray for the funding for this trip.
Baja Compassion Families
Pastor Carlos’s family ask for prayer about moving from their current home to something smaller, and if it is God’s will that He provide the finances for it.
We, Pfingstons continue our behind the scenes work supporting Pastor Carlos - being facilitators to their service. while watching ways to minister at any opportunity.

Also she asks for prayer for her next planned mission trip to Cuba (January). She needs to raise $1500 dollars.. And she is trusting God to do so.
