News From the Front

Alright, I know it has been awhile but I've been away.

Once again I am in Mexico helping the local church here build facilities and do a better job of serving people who live in their neighborhoods.

We just got the electrical in, [thanks Gustavo and Marcelo] and are currently drywalling and painting the interior of the worship center we built in Ensenada in April of this year. Here's a picture of the outside.
Once we finish that, we will be doing some concrete work out front, painting the exterior, and then the the local congregation, [God is Love Church] will move in. They had outgrown their current facility.

On July 16th, I head to Guadalajara for 5 days to train a team of students and leaders from King of Kings Church for their mission with us in Oaxaca. It is our first short term mission trip where we will be leading a team of Mexican participants.

As you can see, I have a busy few weeks ahead of me.
Also, as gas prices continue to rise in the US, it was good to fill up my tank the other day with my now favorite brand of gasoline, Pemex. It sells for about $2.50 a gallon, depending on the exchange rate. That's $60.00 a tank compared to $95.00 on my trip into Mexico.

$2.50/gallon. I miss those days.

Of course, after you figure in real income of the average Mexican, it's really not that cheap.

But glad someone's getting a deal on gas.
