The Mission... Oaxaca 2011

Many of my friends have been asking to see some pictures of our work in Mexico. You can view some great shots not only of our ministry, but the people and area of Oaxaca here.

Brother Joe Ramirez and his team of photographers from The Rock Church in San Diego came and tirelessly shot picture after picture of what we were doing to document the work and help publicize our mission.

I have written about how his specific ministry can make an impact on people at my Adventures in Life Ministry blog, "notes from dave..."

Check it out. In the meantime, here are a few pictures from my time in Oaxaca.

Great pics Dave. What did you build this year?


Blogger Dave Miller said ... (2:55 PM) : 

Hey Tim, here's the run down of my last few weeks there...

1. Plowed, reset, and planted our demonstration farm.
2. Wrapped in plastic and planted 2 small [10 x 10] demonstration greenhouses.
3. Built a third greenhouse
4. Plumbed a ministry training center and a church
5. Installed electricity for the training center and the church.
6. Dug and installed a 5000 liter cistern for the facility.
7. Lots of flatwork/concrete

In just a few weeks, I return to the area with a medical team

Wow, Dave. Great photos. It's great to be able to see where and with whom you do your ministry.

Welcome back. But I see you'll be back there soon.

Good wishes to you and bless you for all the good you do.
