Heading South for the Winter

Posted in , ,

Yes, it’s starting to get cold in PA after a remarkably beautiful and relatively warm autumn. So beautiful to see the changing of the seasons.  It’s a changing season for us, too, in several ways. We are excited about a transition to a new mission, Liebenzell USA. Never heard of it? Neither had we, until about three months ago. I wrote a bit about Liebenzell on my last post.  Please continue to send donations to CTEN through the end of the year.

Several churches are thinking about trips to Mexico this next year to visit us and help us in reaching the municipality of Ixtapaluca. If your church may be interested, please let us know!

Below…a relatively current picture of the Palmas church. Co-worker Jim Cottrill recently sent it to me…and he sometimes uses goofy filters (not that everyone looks goofy in the pic!), but you get the idea! A couple people in this picture have definitely gotten taller since we last saw them (Nat, Pablo). We’re excited to be back to local church ministry in Mexico.

The next time you hear from us, we’ll likely be in Mexico. A shout-out to Word of Life Chapel and E-town Grace for embracing us and including us into their local church during this last year.

Below, some recent pictures of life in PA.

The colors of fall haven’t been super brilliant this year, but still beautiful.

  1. Hi there Rod and Mayra, we are excited to hear of your return to Mexico, but glad that you had a chance to be at home in PA as well. SO I ahd to laugh at the name of your mission…if you read it really fast you could easily think lie n’ embezel, HAHA!!!! That would be appropriate for a Mexican ministry if it was connected to El Chapo Ministries. 🙂 Really though, we will love to hear more about the new ministry. Currently we are directing and living at 24/7 a children’s home…uffff….not where we thought we would be at this time but loving what God is doing. May God bless you richly. Shelli and Greg Neufeld

  2. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the fact that you are now part of Liebenzell! When I found out I yelled, “¡¡¡¡¡YES!!!!!” Praying for you.
