Hope for Mexico
The Jones Family
Sherry and I began our missionary journey in March of 1994. The two of us, along with Emily and Sarah, (2 years old and 2 months old), left home, friends and family to obey God’s Great Commission. We packed up an old 1969 truck with a 14 foot trailer and drove 7 days to Puerto Escondido in Southern Mexico. God directed our steps and we made it safely to pioneer this new work. That was 20 years ago. Now we have 8 children ranging from 6 to 22 years of age and each one plays an important part of our ministry. I am a Pastor/Evangelist and my family
and I use our giftings to draw people to God through a variety of community outreaches. We strive to know God and to make Him known through what we teach and how we live.
Because we have been forgiven much, Sherry and I wanted to express our gratitude to God by obeying the Great Commission. It gives us great satisfaction to direct people, especially young adults, to God and to His Word. There is no greater joy than to see people go from the kingdom of darkness to the Kingdom of Light.

What We Do
El Refugio - "The Refuge" is our base of operations for everything we do. It is where we meet to worship God and to fellowship with one another. It is where outreach teams come from afar to live while working in our community. It is a Hostel for travelers who want to get closer to God. It is a home for people who are being discipled, a learning facility for young and old alike, and it is the home of our Dolphin Soccer Academy.
At El Refugio we teach the fundamentals of Christianity. We emphasize the importance of reading and studying the Bible so that no one will deceive them. Obedience to the Word of God is our utmost value we stress. All are encouraged to participate and apply it in their lives on a daily basis. As they grow and enjoy getting close to God, they invite others to experience the same freedom.Dolphin FC Soccer Academy
The doorway to the community of God. We use the most popular sport in the world, especially here in Mexico, to draw non-churched, Christ-needy youth to the feet of Jesus. Using soccer we can start building the foundation of a God centered life "Evangelism 101". Our soccer club is where discipleship starts. It is here where we begin to teach them the fundamentals of the Gospel. As they begin to believe the Good News of Salvation they start coming to our Bible Study and from there we help them find a local church.
"Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you."- Matthew 28:19-20
