Ministry venues can be a church, school, someone’s back yard, or even just beneath a mango tree. God can work in people’s hearts in any location, but having a place that is perfectly suited to a variety of ministry opportunities is a huge blessing. Mark and Serena Dunbar and their team in Saltillo, Mexico, found the ideal building for pastoral training, youth events, hosting teams, and much more. They called it “the Wow! House.”
From Mark and Serena:
“We had the most fun time. It was an unforgettable Mexican independence celebration!” – Youth leader
“Just let me know when you hold another all-night party and I’ll be there!” – Youth
“Our whole family loved the stay at your house. Thank you for hosting us.” – Visiting pastor
The first two comments were given after Serena and I hosted an all-night party for the youth groups from two different churches here in Saltillo. The third one was from one of our pastors from the Bajío (7 hours south of Saltillo), who brought his whole family with him to a speaking engagement. It is also very exciting to have enough room for the theological education classes that we hold here. All of these events were made possible because you have been faithful! Thank you!
Have you ever felt overwhelmed by God’s blessings? Just last April, we put out a letter informing you of God’s leading to purchase the “WOW house”, a property that perfectly matches our ministry here in Saltillo. In May, we acted on faith and moved into the new Saltillo Ministry Center so that we could work more effectively. Immediately you started responding and continue to do so. At the end of this year, with God’s help, we will make the final payment of $150,000 on this property. Another overwhelming moment was when we received word from the Pacific Conference Foundation that they set up a matching fund of $25,000 to duplicate the gifts you send in from now through December. If you match that amount, we will have enough to make our payment to the owners and will only need to pay back an internal loan to our mission. Would you like to be part of duplicating that gift?
