BEYOND OUR NEIGHBORHOOD
The little church called “La Iglesia Puerta del Cielo” meaning gate of heaven (Gen 28:17), serves the very poor who work the commercial farms located in the desert area approximately 650 miles south of Placentia in the center of the Baja Peninsula, introducing them to the Gospel.
PPC Men’s Ministry constructed this church building for the poor of the Vizcaino area, the largest in Baja Sur, Mexico, and it has served the members since the summer of 2012. God is using this building, along with additional satellite churches to bring the Good News to this barren desert area of Mexico. The Sanctuary Building is also used as a Rescue Center when the area is flooded from Pacific Ocean hurricanes that pass over the Baja peninsula.
