Rain and Blogs

Daniel has begun his own blog, as part of his school assignments. He's required to post at least twice a week. Check it out at The idea is that Daniel shares what Mexico is REALLY like through the eyes of a 13-year-old. Should be interesting!

Another blog that I enjoy following...Autumn's Peak, by Alyssa Miller. Check it out. Her most recent entry is a rather melancholy remembrance of her time in Mexico. But hey, she can afford to be a bit melancholy occasionally, she is 10 weeks pregnant with their first baby. ¡Felicidades!

We took Lindsey and Nicole to Xochimilco yesterday, then ate lunch with Toño and Becky Muñoz, who are good friends and involved in leading the Harvest Bible Church, Mexico City. Always good to see them! Went to a cool museum, too, with a lot of art done by Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera.

Nicole Greiner arrived in Mexico Wednesday after a two-week stint in Honduras. She has been recording up a storm here as well. She will be traveling to Puebla next Tuesday for several days of shooting footage at CAM ministries there. Check out her website HERE.

Last night Mayra and I went to a hospital in Chalco (Clínica 71) to pray for Adriana's mother, 82, who is in critical condition with pneumonia. I was able to give an improvised sermon in the hospital parking lot to 9 of the 10 siblings who were present. Mayra spent quite a bit of time with the mother, Nicolasa. She had previously made a decision for Christ with José, Adriana's husband and co-workers with us in Jesús María. On the way home it started to rain, and rained through much of the night. Blessed rain. Nicolasa probably does not have many days left on this earth. As is fairly common here, Adriana is the only Christian in her whole family, with the exception of one of her sisters. We went back this morning at the request of this particular sister, Beatrice, to counsel her on what to do in a very difficult situation. You might not believe me if I told you what it was...but no worries, I'm not going to!
