Ron and Donna Brink were sent by Calvary Chapel Spring Valley to La Gloria, a small colonia of Tijuana, Baja California Mexico in October of 1993 to start a missions training center. While starting the base some families from a community without a church called Xochimilco approached them requesting that they start a Bible study. Xochimilco was a community that had been started on top of what had been the city dump and was located between two other communities that had been started by families living off of the dump. The location was isolated the people were financially poor, mostly uneducated and surrounded by two communities that were miniature versions of Sodom and Gomorrah. It was an unlikely place to start a church planting ministry.
By the year 2000 we were operating the training center, had a large ministry in the prison, an orphanage along with the Xochimilco church plant. We were overwhelmed! We turned over the leadership of the training center, CCTC La Gloria, and orphanage to focus on church planting. Donna and I are now missionaries out of Calvary Chapel Lone Mountain and Touch Baja continues to work closely with CCTC La Gloria.
With the increased focus on the Xochimilco church the Lord blessed and it grew. Soon it began to send out workers to start new churches. There are now six churches in Tijuana.
