They say pictures are worth a thousand words, right? Well, to save me from writing 1000 words and you from having to read through 1000 words in a blog format which is a daunting task, I thought I would post a few pictures from the first two weeks of training at the Center for Pioneer Church Planting (CPCP). Below is also an update with some exciting news and a couple upcoming adventures.

Exciting News and Upcoming Adventures
First, the exciting news I promised a couple weeks ago…We found out that I (Trevor) will be leading a church planting team for the next two years into a village a few hours over the border. To Every Tribe has been doing ministry in this village over the last few years and our team will continue this work with the ultimate goal of planting a gospel-oriented church there that is led by leaders we raise up within the village. Betsy and the kids will have ample opportunity to go with on our regular (staying in the village one week per month) trips in as well as extra trips we will make. So, pray that God blesses our Spanish acquisition FAST :). Our first trip as a church planting team is a little more than a week away. We will refer to the village as Village EZ – in order to take precautions for our safety as well as the safety of the villagers since there is cartel activity in the area. If you want to learn more about the village feel free to email or call Betsy or myself (I will post regular updates on the blog).
On a similar note, Ethan and I will accompany Garry Weaver – Director of Field Training for the CPCP into Mexico next week to visit several villages To Every Tribe does ministry in. This should be a great experience and Ethan and I will be visiting village EZ for the first time. Pray that the Lord blesses relationships.
