Graduation, Baptisms & more …

Posted on

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!

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?
