I am writing this from Mexico with the ACC Missions Team.
We are having a great time down at the Casa De Luz transitional orphanage. The Team is doing great and ministry is going well. For many on the team, especially the youth and children, it has been a shock. There is much poverty and people live on so little. On Tuesday and Thursday mornings we headed out to Tijuana at 4:45am
so that we could partner with a church that feeds over 150 people breakfast every day. Just watching the families come to receive food was extremely moving. In this area it is estimated that most people, if they have work, earn about five dollars a day. Could you imagine working for 60 cents an hour? The ministry at the orphanage is fun and the children here are so awesome. We have a number of pe on the building site and that is going well too.
I am so proud of our Mexico team and the way that they are working together and just finding areas of ministry to be involved in. It is so great to see the leadership that Walt and Sarah are giving the team….please continue to pray for the team on a daily basis okay?
This Sunday as the team heads back home I am excited to have Kris Baker sharing on Sunday morning
. I know that Kris will have an annointed and powerful word from the Lord. I also know that God is doing some phenomenal things in our church as we continue to be a missions-minded church. Is there supposed to be any other kind of church?
Pray for Alderbrook Church this week….some of us are in Mexico and the rest in Abbotsford. May we be the church that God wants us to be….

We are continuing to teach the different choices that shape a kid’s life. This week the kids will be learning about the choice to pray for others. It is great to encourage our kids to pray each and every day. It lets them know that we can always talk to God.
Also, this Sunday, the kids will be having a popcorn and movie day. They won’t want to miss it!
Each Sunday the children at Kidzone have the opportunity to generously give their change to help people in need. All the Kidzone offering will be going towards the The Kibaale Project
. The children have the opportunity to bless other children in Kibaale with items that they need.
Please join us in helping us teach your children about giving back a portion of God’s blessing.
In the Orange room we are continuing our series all about making wise choices. This week were are talking about how our choices effect others around us both positively and negatively.
