We drove to the Orphanage in the mountains and spent the night there. Phil and Marianne hadn't been there, so we gave them the tour of all that's going on there. The drive south took us 8 hours further into Mexico 🇲🇽 and we spent the night in San Juan del Ricon south of Qeretaro. 2 hours to Jorge and Selena church in Masahua. We unloaded everything in the van except for a couple cases of bibles for Pastor Jose. We toured the house they are building and will help with $ to complete it. Off to Puebla.
We drove 5 hours to the Holiday Inn in Puebla. The people there love to see Phil and Marianne. They usually stay there for several weeks in the summer doing ministry but Covid-19 crushes more ministry. We filled the van at Sam's Club in Puebla with beans and rice, and took the food to Pastor Joses house. We took José and his family out to lunch at a Brazilian Steak House at a great restaurant near them. We said our goodbyes and drove 10 hours towards home the next morning.
Hundreds of families will be blessed by our trip despite the 2000 miles of driving that burned lots of gas. We love traveling in Mexico and being a blessing to those in need. Today we go to Mexico to bag up 2000 lbs of beans Andres picked up yesterday from a partner who we gave a truck load of beans to, and he crossed it to Mexico. I'll be crossing a pallet of rice today as well.
Shawn and Carla are staying with us until they load thier trailer and head back to Kentucky. God has called them there after serving in Mexico for over 15 years. Be praying for them as they transition.
