Timothy asked Carlos to minister at the center the following week. He and Richard talked, and Richard started a short training series for the small group of men who would be involved in personal ministry at that AA facility. When the meeting time arrived, the handful of men were ready for action. There were around 32 men and women present and they all desired ministry prayer. The night was very successful and the participants, as well as prayer workers, were deeply touched.
Carlos’ meeting with Timothy led to two ministry opportunities. The first was the restoration of the AA facility in Los Cabos. When Carlos saw the condition of the facility, he immediately ordered what was needed to repair the building, as well was what was needed to refurbish and bring the facility back to full use. This restoration is happening as I write! During this time, Timothy also asked Carlos if he was interested in taking a look at the AA facility in La Paz (the capital of Baja California Sur, which is around a two-hour drive from Los Cabos).
All of this led to Carlos being asked to minister at the AA facility in La Paz. Carlos invited a handful of men and asked Richard to train them, as well as come with them to the ‘all day’ excursion to La Paz. Every man in the facility wanted personal ministry. Approximately 120 men received ministry and the relatively new ‘prayer team’ was ecstatic over the wonderful ministry experience. To top this off, Carlos was compelled to buy all new mattresses for the facility, as well as to meet other physical needs the facility had!
The Los Cabos Children’s Foundation event with our friend Chris was our first official Kingdom Builder’s event; with Carlos’ Alcohol Anonymous’ connections being next. Neither one of these endeavors is ‘Christian’ in themselves, but when ‘salt and light’ invade earth, the cause of the Kingdom of Heaven is advanced. Please continue to pray for both of these organizations!
