ISAIAH'S BAKERY

We are so excited to share the news that our training center - Isaíah’s - is now up and running! Housed alongside our t-shirt printing shop, the vision Lorena shared to open a bakery fit with our mission to share the gospel and bring training opportunities to locals. Serving everything from breakfast rolls to hamburger buns, these women have found purpose working alongside each other. Lorena, Patty, and Esperanza now work 5 days a week to bring accessible meals to locals, supply Angie’s with baked goods, and develop partnerships with the community. God is working through these women to give purpose and be a light to San Rafael. Please consider sponsoring these women for the month of May.

NORMA CHAVEZ

"When I came to this organization I brought my heart completely broken with a problem in my marriage and my family destroyed. But when i6eight built my house (Nov 2018) I met true love (Jesus Christ) who healed my heart. They gave me the opportunity of a job, where every day I can bear witness to what God has done and continues to do in my life and in my family. God has changed my relationship with my daughters just like He changed my life, I like to tell all the people who come to the office who have the same or similar problems that I came with, that Jesus Christ can change their life."

Norma is our behind-the-scenes office manager and key coordinator for our Love without Borders program. This month we are sending out two teams of local missionaries to Chiapas and Ensenada, Mexico to share what God has done in their life. Be in prayer this month of how God can use you to reach beyond your own borders and support our locals who now are becoming missionaries themselves.

PAN DE VIDA

Introducing the women behind Pan de Vida, Teresita, Celia, and Nyeli work our outdoor kitchen which serves hundreds of meals every week. These women not only start cooking at 5am, but they are breaking the chains of hunger in their community. What began as Celia's dream to meet the needs of those around her, has grown into a passion to feed the kids and homeless in one of the most dire neighborhoods of San Rafael. As the kitchen has grown, she recruited Nyeli and her daughter Teresita to help accomplish their mission. They have been transformed by Christ, and now want others to experience the bread of life. Prayerfully consider supporting their ministry as they continue to pour into their community.

Tony & Orfa
Valenzuela

The hands and feet of i6eight, Tony & Orfa have dedicated their lives to sharing the gospel. As our local pastor, i6eight was founded with the simple mission to support the ministry Tony & Orfa were already doing. Moved by God's love, they have one goal- to bring God's love to their community. Having a heart for the lost, their sacrifice often resembles giving away their last dollar and walking home without shoes as there was someone who needed them more. There is simply no limit to what they are willing to sacrifice to save the lost. As most of our ministry happens in their front yard, Tony, Orfa, and their 7 kids pour themselves into the lives of the community every single day. They are bold in their witness to others and their front door is always open. Your support to Tony & Orfra will undoubtedly spread to the community of San Rafael.

10 FOR 10

10 for 10

We are so excited that this year i6eight is celebrating ten years of faithful ministry. What started as a response to God’s Word saying “go” is now ten years of God saying “I am with you”. Celebrate with us as we reflect on 10 years of God’s faithfulness and look ahead to all God has planned for us. 10 for 10. Because i6eight is far more than a handful of Americans serving in Mexico and i6eight is far more than a house building ministry. I6eight is a gospel proclaiming, disciple making, compassion ministry that is transforming lives through Christ. Faithfulness to this task requires far more than a few hands. In fact, it takes a small army of people who love Jesus and are called to make His name famous. As we celebrate 10 years of ministry in 2021, each month we will be introducing one of our local missionaries committed to this work. Join us in celebrating, in prayer and in financial support to equip this team for another ten faithful years. Each month we are seeking 10 monthly supporters for our missionary of the month. Start praying now for how God will use you to impact the ministry of i6eight.  Check out this months local missionary of the month. 

And I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?” Then I said, “Here I am! Send me.”
