Misc. Happenings

In the interest of actually writing here, I thought I’d do a quick general bullet-pointed post. A lot has happened this week, with little time to write. So we’ll go with a list, just to give an idea of a not-atypical busy week! Tim, Drew and Gavin went camping this last weekend in Tlatlauquitepec, a […]

Easter celebration

Yesterday was a great day. Jesus is alive! We had a good service at El Camino, where they baptized 10-12 new believers, and then we hustled back over to Pueblo Nuevo for our own service. Things went well. We had good food, a good turnout, and I think some really good conversations with people. We […]

Prayer letters

Well, after a very long, and busy, hiatus, we’ll be back, hopefully with a bit more consistency and content. Not that I’d hold my breath. But we’ll start with a quickie link to our latest three prayer letters, from January through March. Yes, we wrote them! No we didn’t post them. Bad missionary! March 2013 […]

FBUP Day 4

We had a great week—50-60 kids, most of whom we have regular contact with (only about 25 were from our ESL camp two weeks before; many others were from school and sports with some walk-ins). Thursday we gave an invitation and somewhere from 12-30 kids responded. Eddie did a great job with his kids (12) […]

FBUP, Day 3

Well, I’m an idiot, officially. I’ve managed to lock the keys in the rental van twice in two days now. That was a lousy ending to a good day. We’ve got a locksmith scheduled for 7:30 AM. Aagh. Cars shouldn’t be made without a keypad, although I’ve never locked the keys in our car before. […]

FBUP Day 1

Just a real quick update after a long day. We did VBS today and had about 50 kids. About 30 were from the ESL camp and about 20 were walk-ups. We were pleased. The best part is that we already know most of the kids. Relationship-building is going well. Now we’re praying for the next […]

Baptism Sunday

Today we took our FBUP team out to a camp to join with Comunidad Bíblica at a baptism service. What a special day! Our US home church with our former Mexican church, celebrating communion, Sunday worship, and baptism. It was a very emotional time. And the camp is in a beautiful place as well. Two […]

An August update

I think before the summer is over, we’ll put up a post looking back at our teams and what we and they were able to accomplish. Good things! But for now things are kind of busy. So we’ll put up another prayer letter we sent out today, about the Bethesda team and the plans for […]

Springfield, Day 4

Well, today was the last full working day of the group, Day 4 in the schools. We did 6th grade in the morning and afternoon schools today. It was a brilliant success. Students had fun and were encouraged to go after good character: truthfulness and selflessness. Teachers appreciate what we are doing–they experience daily the […]

Springfield, Days 2-3

I’m pretty wiped out, and we’ve had two non-stop days on a row, so the daily blog is going to be sorely tested. But, just to get something down, and not miss a chance to describe the good stuff the group is doing, I’ll put off bedtime a few minutes. Yesterday: we were at the […]
