Catching Up with the Beaches
We recently had the pleasure of talking to Kevin and Alina Beach about their ministry and how they have experienced God’s hand at work through recent changes in life. After working in Mexico for over 13 years with New Tribes Mission, first in Chihuahua and then in Durango; since Dec 2008 they have been with Fellowship International Mission (FIM) engaged in building a local body of believers in Valle Dorado, which is located north of Puerto Vallarta. They began by holding kids’ clubs in the parks nearby. Not only did they build relationships with the children who came by playing games with them, but they introduced character values in the teaching time which drew the interest of their parents. Before long people began asking questions, trust was built, and a church was born.
Over time a door of opportunity was opened to meet on a weekly basis with men and women seeking help in a rehabilitation center. Through this ministry, not only have several who attend come to faith in Christ, but some staff members as well have found new life in knowing Jesus after hearing the Truth of God’s Word and seeing the impact of God’s love in the lives of others.
One of the biggest transitions for them recently has been that their two sons, first Wesley and then Taylor, each got married and are living in the Seattle area where they have each started their own home. And their youngest, Aline, is in college training to become a commercial pilot. One result of this new phase in life is that Alina has found additional time to expand her role as mentor to some of the women in the church on a regular basis.
Their desire is for the men and women of their church to deepen their faith and grow in confidence to serve the Body of Christ. Pray for the intern who is coming from Liberty University to help lead the youth this summer and that God would raise up a leader on a more permanent basis for that ministry.
