Dresselhaus Update March 2015



     MARCH 2015 UPDATE

    Steve and Lois Dresselhaus


TEAM Guatemala’s first ever annual conference

                         What’s new?

Going into an ice cream shop, one is confronted with dozens of choices.  This is how Lois and I have felt the past few months as we waited for clarity regarding to where we should relocate. The wait was not particularly  difficult, because the choice to be made was from a collection  of good options; and the wait has not  negatively impacted our work in any way.  After consulting with our sending churches and TEAM’s leadership, the decision is for us to return to La Paz, which was what we had been planning  on last fall.  As TEAM continues to grow rapidly, we need to be positioned in a place that is advantageous to my role as a senior director for global ministry.  But we also want to be located in a place where Lois can immediately connect with ministry. Returning to La Paz seems to be the best place for this to occur.


TEAM participated in the COMIMEX conference in Mexico City. This was a nationwide conference on Missions


     In February I completed a trip to three countries in Central America – Mexico, Guatemala and Honduras.  Lois was able to accompany me on the Guatemala portion of the trip.  As TEAM  rapidly grows we are able to expand our work into new countries, start all kinds of new projects and ministries, and develop partnerships with other agencies and church associations with whom we can serve.  It is with a sense of excitement, joy and deep expectation that we are able to seek out these new opportunities.   We are very grateful to the Lord for helping TEAM grow like this.  A personal joy for me is seeing how the ministries related to caring for the environment as a means of caring for people are blossoming around TEAM’s world and finding quick and easy acceptance.                                        I am grateful that the “Americas Team”  is now complete.  There are five us working together to give direction to TEAM’s work and ministry in all the Americas.  It is a joy to work with these wise and godly men who have a passion for the lost world and nearly limitless energy to accomplish the task.  Working with these men–Martin, Craig, Ben and Mark–is an honor.


SIGO VIVO is a church-based ministry to homeless young people and those struggling with substance abuse. We partner with them in Guatemala.

                                                              Future Activities                                                                  Obviously, moving back to La Paz is looming in the near future.  Also, my travel schedule will be somewhat heavy this year, as TEAM enters new countries in South and Central America and continues developing our North American ministries.  Much of our immediate ministry is related to the growth we are experiencing, as new missionaries, new agencies and new-to-us church associations join with us in spreading the good news of the reconciliation of all things made possible by the blood of Jesus.   We wake up every morning eager and energized to see what God has in store next.


For wisdom as we plan for our move back to La Paz                                                                    -That we get back to full financial support                                                                                     That our house will rent quickly so that we can move soon                                                      For a summer job for our daughter


        We are excited about the current ministries in which we are engaged, and we are thrilled with the prospects of the future as we relocate back to La Paz.   As we partner with others in Kingdom work, we are clearly experiencing the joy and blessing that comes from such work.  We would welcome your participating with  us in our work through praying, giving, visiting, corresponding, or even joining us overseas.  Could the Lord be calling you to serve overseas?

Steve and his wife Lois live in La Paz, Baja California Sur, Mexico. They are the founders and directors of RECONCILIAMAR, -- http://www.reconciliamar.org/ ---a Mexican NGO that "uses adventures at sea to transform lives." Because of the generous contribution of people like you who follow MACROCHRISTIAN, SCUBA diving and sea kayaking trips are offered free of charge to local people. The goal is to increase people's love for the ocean thus giving them a personal reason to want to care for and protect it. Steve and Lois also use adventures at sea to create large blocks of uninterrupted time in which to talk about King Jesus. Look for them at www.reconciliamar.org. Steve is a SCUBA diver, sea kayaker and an avid cyclist. Meeting with followers of Jesus every week in a house church setting is a number one priority for him. Making the world a better place by obeying Jesus is what energizes him.
