Acambay

Posted on

Jan 23 – 27 Phil travelled with Pastor Sabastian, Pastor Bernabé, his wife and youngest son to Acambay, in the state of Mexico. It was a long, tiring trip with a lot of visits to churches and groups who are wanting to start studying with SEAN the material we use for the Seminary by Extension program (Semillas) that we offer. What a great trip!

After visiting 4 churches and making connections with 4 additional churches who are interested in studying, we are very excited to report that we may be looking at 3 – 4 new study groups in the Acambay area. We are still gathering contacts and confirming with those who are committing to study, but we are amazed at what God is doing in the hearts and lives of people here in Mexico!

Pastor Emmanuel (left) invited us to go to a very small church of 12 people in San Felipe about an hour and a half from where we stayed in La Loma. They were so grateful for our visit.

Our kitchen has been busy. Carolyn’s baking skills put to the test while dealing with a leak in the kitchen ceiling for almost 2 weeks while waiting for the owner of the house to have the repair guy come. She’s been making goodies to help raise funds for a family who is really struggling.
