Anniversaries, Relief Work and God’s Protection

I had the unexpected treat of spending the weekend with Gaspar Chablé, a pastor, rancher and friend from Oaxaca. The gospel of Jesus is Gaspar’s passion, and he is constantly looking for ways to help people fight both spiritual and material poverty. His understanding of agriculture as it relates to life in rural Oaxaca is …
