“Although my father and mother have forsaken me, the Lord with take me up”. –  Psalm 27:10

but Jesus said

“Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the
kingdom of heaven.”

Mitch Mays

Mitch first started coming to Emmanuel in 2003, and he made the connection that David had been his local butcher in Ventura. Mitch first came with a Ventura church missions group, putting up swing sets. Emmanuel had some legal questions that he discussed with David and was able to help him out with later. Mitch and his family have been supporting Emmanuel ever since. He loves David’s miracle stories particularly the water traveling uphill into the storage tank. Mitch loved listening to Dr. Don tell his stories and joke around.


Mitch just recently (11/1/21) retired as a California Judge.
