Well, after over a month of silence, I am BACK! Due to several "issues" with both my office and home computers, I have been silent in blog world. Oh how I have missed you! :)...........
So, please start checking again, because I have MUCH to catch us up on!
Since by now you have mostly all heard how PHENOMENAL our mission trip to Mexico was,I will spare you the details again!!! We built two lovely houses and completely "rebooted" a Christian Camp in San Felipe. It was our best year ever. I feel we sowed some deep seeds of love and grace in a very impoverished place. Thanks to all of you for your support and prayers.
So I am just going to dump a bunch of pictures for you to peruse..........
Thanks for checking in!
