Tijuana, Mexico, a city of more than 2 million people, is a city in turmoil. It is only five miles from the U.S. border, but a lifetime away from the prosperity and comparative safety that lie just on the other side of that border. As people pour into the city searching for a new life, the streets are filled with disillusioned families without homes, children begging on the streets, crime and depravity at every turn. It is a city filled with despair.
Since 1994, Tijuana has been the home of Art and Joyce Stoneking. They have been blessed to work with the national pastors and leaders to help further the Gospel of Jesus Christ in this area and bring hope to the hopeless.
A large part of the Stoneking’s ministry in Mexico is the construction of new churches and the expansion and renovation of existing structures. U.S. teams from all over the country have joined in the construction of churches and children’s centers in various cities and towns throughout the Baja Peninsula.
