Monday in the Marketplace
We were thrilled to have several members of our ministry team with us in November. While here, they were able to take in the Monday ceremony, as well as pray for the area during our regular ‘Monday in the Marketplace’ event. We highlighted a special 'Avanza Sin Tranza' appointment we had in the blog below, but hadn't posted pictures from the ceremony that day. Here is a look at the team, as well as the Monday in the Marketplace ceremony...

It was while they were here that we had the opportunity to speak with the head of La Presidente Armida Castro’s security team. We had met and talked with him previously, but had not been able to present him with an Avanza Sin Tranza—Thrive without Bribes—packet or talk with him at length regarding the program. The program is designed to teach Godly character, ethics and morals. The program does not directly reference the Bible, but teaches God’s ways, that a people and a nation might be transformed. When you do things God’s ways, you prosper. Changing the mindset and teaching a nation His ways has the power to transform a nation!
As Richard presented him with an overview of the program, he shared with us the need for such training. He shared the struggle with domestic violence, as well as other struggles the people, police, and public servants face daily. He also shared, though, that with budgets tighter than ever, he could not see paying for such a program—no matter how desperately needed. We were thrilled to share our hearts and to be able to share our passion for bringing the program to the area through sponsorship, so that it would be free to the schools, as well as to the government officials.
We are currently working with the newly appointed head of the Los Cabos education department and are excited to begin training teachers, that they may train our students in these Godly characteristics! We were thrilled to have the opportunity to speak with our friend, the head of security, to see if there might be an opening there, as well.

As always, thank you for all of your prayers and support!
