This is Desemboque a fishing village of 400 people along the Sea of Cortez. Our team has made several trips here now and has made an enormous impact on the community. This year we are finishing the construction of a "ramada" that someday will be completely sided and be used as the main church building in the area. Currently Casa De Oracion has outgrown their current building that seats 120. The new ramada will seat more than 300!

This is the village also named Desemboque where the Seri tribe live. They have their own unique language not spoken anywhere else in the world. Today only about 1900 Seri remain in two villages. It was an honor to visit them and meet with the Pastor of the only church there.
