Live, love, learn, laugh and labor with new friends in a new culture!

Dean Tinney on 7 July 2011

"You have not chosen me, but I have chosen you and ordained you that you should GO and bring forth fruit and that your fruit should remain." John 15:16

Enlarge your faith. Expand your vision. Extend your family. Educate your heart. Equip your soul. Explore your options. Exercise your talents. Embrace new insights. Encourage the poor. Endure servanthood. Enjoy the children!

Get away from the noise of the world for two weeks or more in Belize, Central America where the official language is English. Sometime after the initial two-week, mini-mission training course in Belize, (one week in class and one week in the field), consider investing one month or one year or more serving at one of our children's ministries in Belize, Mexico or the Philippines.

Hang out under the shiny stars in Belize and give the Holy Spirit a chance to speak to your heart about a new beginning. Expect spiritual growth and rewards. Discover and develop new ways to serve Him in any impoverished culture with classroom sessions and hands-on mission training and experience.

Planting a Gospel Seed with Neighbors in Need

Dean Tinney on 3 July 2011

The Santiago and Morales families are Oaxacan Indians who live on the edge of a migrant farm camp next to the new Sparrows Gate Ranch in the Valley of the Palms, Tecate, Mexico. This poem is about them and the Christian who can meet and love their needy kind in any third-world country. These words are dedicated to our faithful friends Chuck and Charla Pereau and their tireless staff at Foundations For His Ministry who have shared Christ and cared for hundreds of needy children and thousands of Oaxacan farm workers in Baja, Mexico, for almost three decades.

Blessings come in bunches for many Mexican migrants

Dean Tinney on 1 July 2011

They were obviously overripe and dark brown-to-black, but I loaded up two large boxes of powerful-smelling bananas along with many fine loaves of bread.
