I Love My Van

Anniversaries, Relief Work and God’s Protection

We’re in Puebla this Sunday, visiting Chalo and Beth Sandoval’s latest church plant, Maranatha Bible Church. I’m preaching, a repeat of a sermon I did recently on Mark 13, but such a relevant topic of the signs of the end of this age. We’re certainly living them! We are excited about celebrating The Sendero Palmas …

Wheelchairs!

I finally got word mid-week last week that I could deposit funds for 30 wheelchairs and go pick them up. Murphy’s Law was, of course, in effect. The only day to pick them up was Friday. Friday afternoon. And the warehouse where they were stored…the whole way across Mexico City in another city called Toluca. …
