Where in the WORLD are we?

Malu and I in Monterrey
Praise the Lord we've arrived in Amealco, QR, MEXICO. Where we are staying at a property outside of town. The town itself is small, about 400- 450 yrs old and some of people have been there since it was established, at least they look that way . . . kidding!! The locals have a mix of indigenous blood and European. The indigenous that are from around the area have very fine features, as indigenous go, they are not too tall and have a nice brown tone to their skin; it doesn't seem to carry the red hue that so often accompanies this type of colouring. The people themselves are very friendly and love to joke. 


We're staying with a couple, Brock and Heather, and their four children (3 boys/ 1 other). Brock and Heather have been here for about 6-8 yrs working in the area. Originally they arrived to help with the local camp, but the Lord changed the plans and now they're highly involved in a church they've planted. 

Malu and Julian's Home for the next little while!

This building doubles as the church and a residence for Malu and Julian. 

We had an awesome trip down to Mexico. We spent the first night away from Canada with Sister Cindy and Brother Ken Cooper, some of you from our home church in Calgary will remember Sister Cindy, she came to do the ladies conference. Later on, when we had reached Monterrey we were able to actually pick up Sister Cindy from the Airport and bring her to her Hotel and then the following day, which was a Sunday, she preached at a Principe de Paz Iglesia in Monterrey. Sister Cindy preached the gospel and delivered a message of salvation, there were about 30-35 people that came forward. Malu and I were given the privilege to pray with some of these as they accepted Christ . . . WHAT AN AWESOME START TO THIS TRIP!!

We had some extra blessings along the way. Malu was able to spend some time with friends from her time in Monterrey. 

 We wanna say thank you again to all who have supported us in prayer, financially and emotionally. Its been a considerable amount of time and effort, but even the first week in Mexico has been such a blessing. 

Please continue to pray that God would use us to point people to Him and to strengthen those that know Him.

2Co 12:9  And He said to me, My grace is sufficient for you, for My power is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore I will rather glory in my weaknesses, that the power of Christ may overshadow me.
