Most Americans are amazed to learn that the vast majority of Baja has never heard the Good News of Christ. Imagine entering a community of 10,000-15,000 people, where the gospel is presented for the first time. The pure, unaltered Word of God becomes just as powerful as it was 2,000 years go.
The Owens Cross Roads Church of Christ is blessed beyond measure to work with the Church of Christ at Erendira and their preacher, Enrike Velez, better known as “Julio”. Through the church at Erendira and their partnership with Owens Cross Roads Church of Christ, many in that beautiful Pacific community have come to know Christ as their Savior and their earthly lives have been forever changed. The reason is simple: when God’s people offer “a cup of cold water” in Jesus’ name, hearts are changed forever.
Joseph Conwell is the deacon over the work in Erendira from Owens Cross Roads. He, with his wonderful wife Crista, have capably led multiple mission trips to that area which have been a blessing not only to the Mexican brethren, but also all who make the journey. With God’s direction and blessing, plans are being made to continue expand the churches influence in Erendira.
