A Scary Day but We Arrived Safely

Greetings Family, Friends, and All Ya´ll who read this blog,

On Wednesday June 1st we had a very scary drive down from Texas to León. Stay tuned for more details in our next newsletter at the end of the month.

The good news is we arrived safely to León, and we know that God was the only one that helped us get here in one piece. Thanks to all of you who have prayed and who prayed specifically that day. God used your prayers in a mighty way!

Currently, we are easing back into life here in México. We are getting used to the pace, the different rhythms, and brushing up on our Spanish of course. Last night we had our small group time, (which is getting to be a larger group), and we were blessed by everyone there. A joy for us has been to see many of our friends and hear positive things that have happened in their lives while we were in the States. Once again, stay tuned for more...

It is hot here and we do not have air conditioning. We are tired from our 32 hour trip to Mexico and a little exhausted fitting back into a culture that we love, but is not ours. Somehow, God sustains us and is giving us much peace in the midst of the daily hassles that we had forgotten about. Things like the high price of cell phone service, or getting water and groceries are so different here. Everything takes longer, but we are getting used to it and soon it will feel just like home again.

In this post mainly we wanted to let everyone know we were safe and sound in León. Keep praying! We love and appreciate you all!

Our friend Jennifer is visiting us for two weeks and helping us transition back to life here. She has been a blessing.
