The Puerto Escondido Trip was a smashing success. Puerto Escondido has long been known as one of the best and most serious beach breaks in the world. If you are a surfer who loves to travel, Puerto Escondido would definitely be on the top of your bucket list.

Ronne and Sheri Jones prayed about having a world-wide ministry, but after a visit to Puerto Escondido, they realized that the world comes to Puerto Escondido. So they set up a base camp for ministry that reaches the world in one beautiful little beach community —which happens to have a pretty good wave out front. 28 years and 9 kids later, the Jones family continues to do amazing ministry through the world of surfing and soccer on a world-wide stage.

Our team was reminded again of the power of short-term missions. Not only the impact it had on our personal lives, but the encouragement it brought to all the people doing ministry on the ground in Puerto Escondido. We were blessed to serve in a hospital visitation ministry started by an ex-cartel member, build a new fence around the amazing soccer complex, lead a church service, and host an outreach event. The outreach event was a massive highlight as we gave awards of appreciation to the lifeguard legends of Puerto Escondido, awards and new swim fins and binoculars to the current lifeguards, and showed the Walking On Water movie “Beyond Sight”. We were praying for 200 people to show up and God blessed us with an incredible turnout of over 450 people with many making first time commitments to Christ and receiving a brand new Bible. One highlight was a blind man showing up to be a part of the movie showing with a friend whispering over his shoulder the whole movie to tell him about what was going on in the movie.

God is good and we all can’t wait for Puerto Escondido Trip next year, and you may just want to join us on this next one.
