Graduation, Baptisms & more …

Greetings from sunny Mexico!

June has been a very busy month thus far. This past weekend while Carolyn stayed in Puebla to prepare desserts and goodies for a Father’s Day celebration at the church we attend, Phil travelled to La Sierra Norte with our Team Mate Moises Ruiz who was able to return to Mexico for a short visit. They travelled to various places participating in services and classes, and fellowship times.  They participated in a Graduation Ceremony for the three Seminary Students finishing Level 1, a baptismal service at the river for 8 candidates, were able to visit 3 classes to encourage them in their studies, preach at 3 services and enjoy a lot of good food!

Sunday Father’s Day Celebration. Carolyn made goodies and these giant cookie cakes.
Pezmata – making our journey to the river for baptisms.
This little oasis is where we held the baptismal service – Awesome!
This group of guitarists (called Redonda) led the music during the baptisms at the River.
Those who were baptized, pastors and those who assisted.
This fellow is the Pastor’s son, one of those who was baptized. What a joy it has been getting to know him.
Travelled in the van to be able to transport several people and manage the roads better. With all these vehicles around, how are we ever going to get out?
Moises preached at the graduation service.
Group of Graduates in the centre. Diana, Araceli, and Justiniano. Their Pastor on the far left and Missionary Church President next to him.
Phil and Bernabé leading the class in Zapata. This group started in January and have almost finished the first book. They are very eager to continue.
This group of 4 women are well into the second book of the introductory level. Let us introduce to you our newest Tutor Moisés (not Moises Ruiz), who has been leading this study group. It works our well since his wife is one of the students.
