One of the beautiful things about this ministry, which belongs to God, is that there are so many ways to get involved!!
Prayer: We rely completely on Jesus and seeking His will in this ministry. We ask for your prayers for the many different parts of the ministry as God continues to work wonders in the lives of many here in Mexico. Specific prayer requests include:
Manuelito, Josesito, and Alejandrito (our boys at our orphanage Puerta Hermosa- which means Beautiful Gate); any future children that may enter into our Genesis Family; for all of our current staff that they may grow closer to Jesus daily and keep their passion for Him and His ministry while finding rest in His arms; more full time missionaries with hearts on fire for Jesus; finances; that God may continue to grow this ministry in His perfect way; permanent land for our Rancho Genesis Church Camps; all of the children that come to Rancho Genesis that they may walk away filled with Jesus’ love and know that He is their Father in Heaven walking alongside them always; that God may bring the perfect amigos (mission teams) to love on the orphans that come to the Ranch this summer; summer staff volunteers to serve God by serving the amigos and niños all summer long at the Ranch, upcoming medical clinics that people may not just be touched physically but spiritually as well; the Puerta Hermosa building project that God may continue to provide able body workers to help build this place which will be a light for many and a testament to God’s great love; and anything else that the Holy Spirit may place on your hearts.
Staff: We are always looking for volunteers and missionaries who are on fire for Jesus and want to serve Him by furthering His Kingdom down here in Maneadero Mexico! We have different opportunities available depending on how long God calls you to serve. A great way to get involved is to come down for a summer and witness first hand the many miracles that God does at Rancho Genesis daily! Summer camps run for 8 weeks. Message us for more information!
Fourth Camp: When Genesis first began, God instilled in us the passion to someday have 4 Summer Camps all running at the same time throughout the summer. This past summer 2015 , we were so excited that God had paved the path for us to open up our 3rd camp, Camp Love. Through it we were able to receive many new orphanages and teams to come and experience God’s unconditional love!
Lord willing, we now look even further, we hope to someday purchase our own land and build all 4 camps together.
Mission Teams: With the opening up of a third camp, we have more weeks available for mission teams to come down and serve for a week. Your team would have the opportunity to meet some incredible orphan children and show them Christ’s unconditional love that so many have never before experienced. Your team would fly into San Diego, rent vehicles, and then be escorted across the border by one of our professional escorts where you will arrive at a delicious taco stand to have some real Mexican tacos. You will then travel to Rancho Genesis that Sunday night, settle into the 5 star rustic oh so very rustic ranch and enjoy a lovely campfire full of worship, laughter, sharing, and fun. Monday morning will consist of construction until the orphanage children arrive. You will then be paired up one on one (or two on one depending on numbers) with a precious child and you will become their amigo (friend) for the entire week. You will play with this child, participate in the VBS together, learn about Jesus together, and most importantly, show them unconditional love. God will form an incredible bond between you and your child and your lives will forever be changed. Message us for more information and availability!
Puerta Hermosa: Our precious little ones here at our orphanage are severely disabled and require many doctor visits, medicine, hospital trips, diapers galore, and a whole lot of love! We encourage you to pray about sponsoring one of our boys with a monthly donation.
Rancho Genesis: Every summer we have a theme to our Summer Camps and Vacation Bible School and this year our theme is The Jungle! We will be sharing with the children about Jesus’ love for us and the ultimate sacrifice He made for us by dying on the cross. This was also the greatest outpouring of love that there has ever been. We will be playing many games where we learn about teamwork and how we are all on God’s team yet we have different jobs to do, participate in some amazing crafts, sing worship songs around the campfire, explore His creation, and so much more! We are currently looking for people to bake cupcakes (non-frosted because the kids will be doing the decorating). Items that are always in need for our summer camps include: markers, paper, beads and string for bracelet making, nail polish and remover, candy (anything not chocolate as the sun tends to turn chocolate into liquid down here), coloring books, jump ropes, volleyballs, sunscreen, acrylic paint, and soccer balls.
