4 Funerals…r0gq6sxya8z4uysh66huelbc3slgk0d2

Perspective
We’ve been involved with four funerals in the last 8 weeks, some very loose connections, but also a very dear friend and a friend’s son. Funerals in Mexico happen within 24-hours of death, so they become a “drop everything and react” experience. We got 1:30 am phone calls on consecutive nights, and Tim was also out very late with the others. This past week we lost Dr. Pedro Carrillo, who was 82 years old, and had served the Lord faithfully his whole life.

Being around death is an exercise in perspective: am I living my life so as to finish well? “Well done, good and faithful servant” are words we long to hear.
…and joy
We’re also starting premarital counseling with a couple at church, Edgar & Andrea.
