Candace here…reporting live from Tepic…where the weather is cool and rainy. Ashley, be prepared to do some storm chasing when you get here!!!
A lot has been accomplished since our arrival on Wednesday. A lot of groundwork has been laid and plans have been made for next week when the full team arrives. I have been able to preach two services, which is a new thing for me. And the response has been great! I knew that what I had been going through the last few months wasn’t for nothing! I am very excited to share what God has done here in Mexico in just a few short days when we return to Michigan!
I am very excited to welcome the group in a few days. I know they are all anxious to get here, too. Transportation has been the biggest struggle so far. We have been trying to rent vans to transport the group around, and we could not find a place that had anything but small Toyotas! So, I have been praying, and God answered that prayer today! A man who lives across town and who is a missionary pastor offered to let us borrow a very large vehicle that he has for no cost! Of course, we will bless him in the end, but wait until you see this thing! It is huge! We are blessed to know such great people here who take care of us. It is such a humbling experience, and I hope that someday you, too, will come to Mexico and meet our friends.
Tomorrow we start shopping and preparing the camp! Only two more days and Team Mexico 2012 makes their landing in Puerto Vallarta! I’m looking forward to all my hugs when you walk through those sliding doors….or in other words…from the nice cool air conditioned part of the airport to straight up HOT! Lol…love to you all, and safe travels!
Everyone, please pray for my friends!!!
