Reasons to Celebrate

This past week we had several reasons to celebrate. Thursday was Jennifer's birthday and Mexico's Independence Day, and Friday we officially started our church plant as we began talking about the indwelling life of Christ. After our meeting we celebrated Mexico's Independence with the traditional dish of "posole," a filling soup, and laughed and shared our lives with one another. In addition, we have several answers to prayer. One is that Rodrigo was able to be with us and share with the group on Friday. The other is that a couple who are neighbors of ours started attending the group and want to be a part of the church. This is a HUGE answer to prayer.

After an amazing week we went with some friends and Rodrigo to Mexico City to be a part of a house church plant there. It was a blessing to spend time with other believers who are taking the same route we are as being with them is such and encouragement. We plan to be traveling a little more this Fall and Rodrigo will be traveling a lot to be with us here in León. Please continue to pray for us as we travel and that we will have the finances available in order to do so.

Sometimes we can be rather focused on the things that aren't going smoothly in our lives and we forget to take time to celebrate what the Lord is doing in and around us. What are your reasons to celebrate?
