Davisburg UMC

Today we had the opportunity to give the message at Davisburg United Methodist Church in Michigan. We felt priveledged to be able to share at a church that is supporting us financially, and at a church that is special to us because Jennifer's Uncle is the pastor. Once again, everyone was very welcoming to us. As we travel around to various churches we are continually amazed at the warmth and hospitality of the people we meet. After the service a woman told us that we helped break down her "misconceptions" about Mexico and Mexicans. Time and time again we challenge others to think about the misconceptions they have and how they might affect how they interact with others or even keep them from ministry. We have had to overcome our own misconceptions about Mexico and Missions in order to follow God into our calling. It is our pleasure to share what we have learned with others and challenge them to re-think their misconceptions. We were thankful this kind woman approached us and thanked us for challenging her. =)
Following the service the church and Jennifer's family helped throw a "Fiesta" for everyone. The party was complete with all kinds of Mexican food from enchiladas to authentic tacos. Thanks Davisburg UMC for your enthusiam and support of our ministry, and thanks Uncle Bill for all your help! Gracias por todo!
