Here and There and Everywhere

This past weekend we traveled to St. Louis, MO to spend some time with the Reynolds side of the family, visit friends, and share with a small group. As we get ready to go back to Mexico we are faced with the reality that we have very little time left with our family. Therefore, we headed West to see Josh's sister and spend some time with her small group. We had the chance to share a meal with two of the leaders of her group, and we were pleased to find out we have much in common. They are starting a group within a Lutheran church that is missional in it's focus and open to various Christian traditions. We were encouraged because it was refreshing to meet others who are doing similar things that we are doing only in a different part of the world.

Tomorrow we will be a part of St. Luke UMC's Going Forth Fair in Lexington, KY. It is going to be a long but exciting day for us as we will be participating in the early service, sharing in several Sunday school classes, and participating in a luncheon to raise support for our trip back to Mexico. We are extremely thankful for our St. Luke family and the way they have so faithfully supported us over the past three years. We look forward to a full Sunday tomorrow as we challenge people to go forth into their communities and around the world to share the love of Christ.
