Baes Missions Journey
A little less than a year ago, God called us to leave everything behind & GO serve Him as missionaries in Colombia! Sounds crazy right? Yes... because it totally is!! Truth is,we were scared out of our minds, every why, what, when, and where crossed our thoughts.
We knew that saying YES & GOING... meant taking our kids out of their schools, selling our home, getting rid of all of our things, leaving our friends, family, and even our church. But we chose faith over fear & we obeyed the calling that God had placed on our lives to reach the lost and make Jesus famous in South America, Colombia!
Truth is, it has been an incredibly difffcult transition for our entire family since the day we landed in Colombia on January 23, 2021. BUT... Our GOD has been so faithful to us. He has opened up doors that we could have never imagined. And, in just a few short weeks of us being here, God has provided us with a place to live, strangers that are now friends to help us serve, and has given us the tremendous oppportunity to minister to familes in one of the poorest communities in Medellin, Colombia. We were able to give food, toys, snacks, backpacks, free haircuts & manicures, play soccer, but most importantly share HIS GREAT LOVE!! But...it was only the beginning!!
The more time we spent in La Comuna 13, the more we saw the needs of this community. This neighborhood is a very vulnerable place, filled with gangs, violence, and poverty, but with AMAZING people desperately searching for HOPE! Many of these kids have no food, living in implore-able conditions, some have never been to school, don’t know how to write their own names, don’t have access to internet, or any resources that can help them succeed in life. You ask these kids what they want to be when they grow up , and most of them do not have any goals or dreams. It’s heart breaking! BUT WITH GOD THERE IS HOPE!!!
Knowing all we had learned, God began to stir in our hearts a desire to open up a faith based Community Center that would not only provide resources such as food, access to wifi, computers, a library, a gym, classrooms, a barbershop to not only get haircuts but also to learn how to cut hair, arts and crafts, music, tutoring, and so much more.... BUT most importantly to share the LOVE of JESUS!
The Baes Mission goal is to reach as many children & families in need and make JESUS FAMOUS wherever we go. Our heart and passion is to bring the HOPE & LOVE of JESUS to children of all ages. Serving in neighborhoods where people are too afraid to enter, some forgottten by their own government, many without any life skills or education, others without basic necessities like food or running water, and way too many who are orphaned. THIS IS WHY WE NEED YOUR HELP!
TOGETHER WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
Although, there is still much unceratinty that still surrounds us and lays before us, we are confident in ALL that God is doing and will continue to do as we follow the calling God has placed on all of our lives which is THE GREAT COMISSION!! As Matthew 28:19 says "Therefore go and make disciples of all nations..."
