September is our hottest month, and is also the month we watch for hurricanes. Nonetheless, our tourism has been comparatively healthy for this time of year. At the beginning of summer, it was almost like the tourists from the United States and other parts of the world said, “We’ve had enough of this lockdown,” and started buying their tickets and making reservations.
We don’t move quickly down here, but being ‘green’ also means return to full capacity for our area churches, as well as the ability to have Sunday School and nursery. This long awaited classification also means the opportunity to have large gatherings of people, which prepares the way for many ministry opportunities.
As far as approaching the Director of Education of the Municipality of Los Cabos in regards to rescheduling the Avanza sin Tranza program; we are giving them time to get organized and back on their feet since school just finally started in mid-August. We are also praying about the timing for initiating the process for the Avanza sin Tranza training for the law enforcement officers of Los Cabos.
Richard and I are both continuing to mentor/minister to a handful of believers the Lord has allowed us to establish special relationships with. It is true that Cabo has a ‘revolving door,’ but we pour ourselves into the ones He sends to us – for however long or short that time is.
Richard is also continuing to visit the marina at Cabo San Lucas. This ministry has brought many opportunities to talk and pray with individuals in the marina area. Most of these men are there to sell everything imaginable to our tourists, but between the trickle effect of Covid-19 and, what is known here as our ‘low-season,’ there are few ‘sales’ people at the marina. Even though Richard has lost several contacts through our ‘revolving door,’ there have been a handful of new contacts each week.
We have a praise report regarding Richard’s mentoring relationship with Brayan (who we introduced in our last blog). Richard did such a great job coaching him that he secured a good job at our Home Depot in Los Cabos. We will miss seeing Brayan’s bright personality regularly, but praise God he is blessed and doing well!
Again, we cannot thank you enough for your prayers and support. We would not be here without you!
