Charleswood Community Church

Recently a group from Charleswood Community Church in Manitoba, Canada came down to partner with Iglesia El Gran Rey in Ensenada.  Though a small Church, Iglesia El Gran Rey, led by Pastor Marcos and his wife Leticia, has been faithfully serving the nearby community for twelve years now.  A day or two before VBS started, the group happened to bump into Pastor Marcos outside of Calimax, and it was obvious from the Canadian pastor Kent’s animated reaction (as well as that of Marcos) that they are a perfect fit to work together.  Throughout the week as the Canadian group led the VBS I was blessed to see these two leaders involving themselves in every aspect of ministry, from preaching to singing silly songs to playing soccer.  The theme of the VBS was the four “I am” statements that Jesus made.  “I am the good shepherd,” “I am the light of the world,” “I am the bread of life,” and “I am the way the truth and the life.”  By the end of the week there were about fifty attendees at VBS, and through testimonies and skits, Kent and Marcos led the way and faithfully spoke God’s truth into the lives of each child present.
