El Puente de Ojuela

Come visit a magical place discovered in the 1500's.

The mines of Ojuela were discovered during the early colonization of Mexico. Soon settlers came and built this ancient town atop two majestic mountains. The mines were exploited for centuries until in the 1960's the place was flooded and the settlement abandoned.

We went last Friday went it was freezing cold and so foggy at first that you cold not see more than 10 feet in front of you. I felt like I was in a ghost town from a movie. I invite you to check out the photos of our adventure.

A Beautiful Evening in Fellowship

I just wanted you to know that last night was wonderful with our friends from work. One of the husbands who has been very hardened against his wife and God was very grateful to have been there with us and be presented with the gospel. He opened up to me about struggles in his life that only the people closest to him know. Also their two sons communicated that they would like to give their lives to Christ. They are young, but maybe they are ready. The wife expressed that she was very happy to have been able to come participate in a small group where she could be fed spiritually.

Also my friend from work came and he wants to come back and also invite us to his parents home. We are praying for him and his ex-wife. They want to re-marry, but her parents are strongly against it.

These opportunities are exciting, and last night I was walking on air. Leslie and I can't wait to see what God is going to do over the next few months. God is answering prayer.

My Hope, Mexico

At the end of this week, Leslie and I are going to have several friends over to see an evangelistic program about Jesus that is coming on national television called Mi Esperanza. I invited two colleagues from work, and I found out that one of them had a brother who lived several years in this very apartment.

The gatherings in our home will be Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights. Please pray for God to touch people's hearts by the Holy Spirit, and that Jesus may be lifted up in people's lives over religion. I am really excited.

A Weekend Retreat to the Mountains

Last weekend the men of the church had a beautiful getaway in the high sierras of Durango for spiritual retreat, and a time to learn to pray. We had between 40 and 50 men go, and several of the men were new faces that are not yet Christians.

The place itself inspires one to praise the Creator with its impressive mountains, diversity of wildlife, towering pine trees, and extreme temperatures. During the day, the temperatures were very nice, but at night... it was FREEZING cold!!! I shivered all night long, even though I was wearing two layers.

We woke up with frost covering the forest floor. After waking up we all walked over a mile to the mountain lake, singing and praising all the way. The frost covering the plants almost looked like foam. I have never seen anything like it.

The most special time for me was Sunday morning. All of the baptized believers share the Lord's Supper together in an unforgettable moment. This trip was hard to beat.

Take a look at my photo page and participate in the adventure yourself.
