Pictures of from our final trip to Northern Mexico

Two years ago I would have never imagined that I would have privilege of playing a role in planting a church in Northern Mexico. I would have never imagined the close relationships that my family and I would build with both believers and non-believers across the border. Therefore, it was bittersweet to say goodbye to our friends in Villages CO and EZ.

However, I believe that our time there ended on a real high note. Over the last several months we have been teaching the members of our church plant how to study the Bible on their own. So for our final gathering with them we simply gave them the text (John 17) and let them loose. It was incredible to see them digging into the Scripture together and then sharing great insights, observations and applications with the whole group. What a privilege to see that happen! I have no doubt that teaching them how to study the Bible on their own is the best gift that we could have given them.

Below are pictures from our last trip:

The teacher in Village EZ. He let us use the school property to teach the kids. We shared meals with him and had some good gospel conversations with him as well. A real man of peace (Luke 10:6).
