Tijuana Missions

Tijuana Missions Trip

February 14th – 21st 2015

Spirit Midwest is headed back to Tijuana Mexico this coming February 14th for another week long trip. This year God has raised enough funds to allow us to build a home for Javier Gonzalez and his wife Elia. They have 5 kids ranging in age from 16 down to 3. Here is Elia’s testimony:

GonzalesMy name is Elia Gonzalez Cortez and I have 8 years with Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior. Our family has suffered a lot in the past. My husband fell at work and hurt his back, my daughter Kimberly (when she was 6 years old) had a very bad case of hepatitis and was in between life and death, Javier has asthma, Stephonia had a problem with her stomach that almost needed an operation and Javier had surgery on his right eye. Receiving a house will be a great blessing for our family. I know that God will be very pleased and may he bless you and keep you.

This family of seven lives in a one room building. In addition, when the mission staff talked with the father, Javier, he shared that not too long ago he had tried to cross illegally into the U.S. to provide for his family but had been caught and returned to Mexico. When he found out that we would be building a house for his family, he felt God was telling him that he needed to stay in Mexico with his family and that God would provide their needs.

During this week long trip we will also be helping in orphanages, feeding kitchens, assisting with rehabs and hospices and feeding the homeless. Come back each day the week of the 14th through the 21st for updates.


  1. Blessed to go again with this incredible God created team. Please keep us in your prayers as we go about His work in Tijuana. May all we do and all we say glorify God!

  2. Today is finally here! We are all sooo excited to see what GOD has planned. 9 of our team of 11 fly out of Des Moines airport today meeting the other two members who flew out earlier this week. Once we hit the border our cell phones go off and are turned back on when we cross back over into the US. THANK YOU for all your financial and prayer support! We will have stories to share here soon-God Bless each of you!

  3. Spirit Midwest is headed to Tijuana February 20-27 2016 and we ask for your prayers as we minister in Jesus name. We will be posting pictures under the media site and blog under the news tab. Please follow along with us as we build another home for a family, feed the homeless, go to feeding kitchens, orphanages, rehabs and many other incredible places eating authentic foods and having laughs. This year our team t-shirts are bright orange so as we travel thru the airports and on the plane it will be an evangelism tool which will open the door to testimonies and praying with and for fellow travelers! Thank you for all your financial and spiritual support that allows us to be your feet and hands in Mexico-GOD BLESS YOU!!
