Financial Needs in Puerto Peñasco
Establishing a new ministry location can be a daunting challenge. Last year, Dwellings was invited to begin looking into opportunities in the coastal city of Puerto Peñasco. This began through a network of relationships. Part time Pt Peñasco residents who were connected to a church we have partnered with for many years in Tucson, AZ had a heart to reach their community. They offered their resources and vision, and together, with their church, and Dwellings, a vision for what could be accomplished was developed.
As weeks went by, we began to enlist the help of others and reach out to more people in Puerto Peñasco to help broaden our network. We searched for infrastructure that could be used to support hosting build teams, people that could assist in identifying families in need and building the list of what would be needed in order to proceed with this endeavor.
Of course all of this has been bathed in prayer. God has given all parties involved with the development of this vision, a complete peace in launching efforts in Puerto Peñasco. As we have begun sharing our vision publicly, we are confident that God will continue to unite us with individuals, churches, schools and businesses that desire to make a significant impact in the lives of families in Northern Mexico.
There is much to be done and we are asking for your help. In order to get started, there is a myriad of needs to be met. Many people have begun asking how they can help.
