VOB on the road…4 hours south of the border, to be exact. It’s been a long time since I’ve been on an official overnight missions trip. Caravaning, sleeping bags, team antics, the whole enchilada (well menudo & ceviche anyway).
Vicente has frequently taken food and supplies which we bring him, to this very poor area near San Quintin, on the Baja peninsula. This time, I got to go and participate. It was an honor to meet the people there. I was reminded of what first inspired me to work with the poor. The people live in conditions, and suffer hardship, that I myself, am not sure I could endure. But, here’s the thing: they do more than endure, they live! They worship like they are the richest in the world. So inspiring!
Hundreds of people came out to the evangelistic meetings. Hot dogs were consumed, toys were received. But the best part, is that souls were won, including 2 young girls, who were actually on our team! They were college friends of Vicente’s daughter, and they gave their hearts to Jesus the night before we left. What a way to start a new walk with Jesus, to then go out and tell others!
What a treat to go with my team, serving alongside each other in a deeper way. I love how our friends love and serve! And, in this season of thanks, we are thankful to the Lord for YOU being part of the team!

We could use a little prayer push this next month: Family health needs–Carol’s folks; Franki June, our sweet little dog, health and healing; A little extra prayer for our day to day-health, mental, physical, safety and so on. We need your covering!’
