The enthusiastic audience welcomed the blessing by Pastora Laura of the Good Samaritan Church 2 in San Rafael with Mark Higgins, Co-Founder of Living Stones Ministries in attendance, as well as Rev, Michael Birnbaum of International Service Learning (ISL).

Rev, Birnbaum stated, “…this beautiful place is an ideal climate to spread the good news and the peace that follows the principles of true Christian practice applied to family welfare and also a place to provide all humanitarian aid we can find”.

Mark Higgins similarly remarked, “Open to all the different congregations and churches in Puerto Peñasco, Living Stones Ministries, Mexico has formed a Board of both nationalities with a common objective==teaching the love in the Holy Scriptures; bringing food to the table of those in need, supplying medical support in various specialties and giving quality time in educating children and to do so, we now have our own building.”
