Sometimes you meet someone that just causes you to get a new perspective on life. That's what happened when I met Remedios last year.
Someone has to do something. The youth of Mexico are being lost, one soul, one life at a time. By youth, I mean those that are nine to 29 years old. This morning, I am looking at the pictures of our recent VBS at the ranch, just north of our city. Tears of joy are flowing because of their smiles […]
Teaching school for 33 years really helped prepare me for the mission field…in more ways than I knew. Meet Oliver who is 5 years old, very demanding, badly behaved, and NEVER stops talking, even during the Bible story. Last year during VBS, he stole my heart!

Living in Mexico is really awesome…most days! I created this blog as a place where we can express ourselves, you know, tell about our experiences here, the good, the bad, and maybe the ugly. Some experiences are exciting, some are sad, and some are just plain funny! Living in another culture requires a person to say, “LET. IT. GO!” a lot! Almost everyday, we look at each other and say, “We’re not in Kansas anymore, Dorothy.” (The Wizard of Oz!) The food is different, the groceries are different. Some things aren’t refrigerated…scary! Phil and I are the only white people around, so we get stared at, A LOT! Especially in the long lines at the bank. The houses are built differently, with concrete rather than wood. At least we don’t need smoke alarms! Oh, and no air-conditioning, or heat! Well, unless you’re rich and live on the north side of town. Our weather is much like the southeastern U.S., so we use lots of fans in the summer, and blankets and sweats in the winter. There is so much more that we’ll be telling you in the future! Our desire is to share the challenges and victories of serving God in Mexico right here on this blog. So I hope you’ll tune in from time to time. You may laugh, you may cry, but mostly I hope you’ll pray for these beautiful people that we live around. They are our […]
Home can be anywhere God leads you to live. Home is where you are. And no matter the conditions, dangers, or situations, home is there. It has been almost two years since we moved to San Luis Potosi, Mexico. It’s home. But I am still adjusting to the differences in this home and our old home, in Georgia. What […]
