Today officially marks the longest amount of time that either Abby or myself have been out of the United States. We do miss a lot of things about being in the States, typically the small things that we never even thought about in the States, but we are truly enjoying serving the Lord, waiting on Him, watching Him work, and taking opportunities He gives us to minister. We've had a variety of different ministry opportunities and even some new ones this past week. We'd like to update all of you who are having such a vital role in our lives through your prayers and finances.

From July 17th-25th a group of 25-30 members of Cristo Te Ama will be taking a missions trip to Campo Mas Agua near Mexico City. Sunday night we had a meeting about the trip and got the details laid down. The estimated cost of the total trip is about 35,000 pesos - or $3,000 USD. That's gas, food, lodging for all 30 people for a week. Abby and I offered to pay a portion of that and another man in the church offered to pay another portion. Pastor Martin's sermon on Sunday was about missions work and he encouraged everyone to be involved in the trip - either by going or by helping someone else go. If any of you, our brothers and sisters in the States, would like to help out some of the people who have signed up for this trip and are trusting God to bring in the money, you may send the money to us through Cornerstone and we will put it all towards the cost of this trip. We don't want to pressure you, but do want you to have the opportunity to be a part of this trip and its crucial role in the life of this church. This is the furthest missions trip the church has taken in its 12 year history and one day, Pastor Martin wants to take the church to a foreign country to minister and share the gospel as well.
