heading stateside

My brother has been busy during his stay !!!!! :) :) :)
This is Florencia's house in Navojoa... We went Thursday and cleaned up, bathed the kids, and also shared some of the word. Please pray for Florencia and all of her children and grandchildren. One of her daughters, Monica, has TB. In the states TB is treatable and not necessarily a big deal. Unfortuantely in 3rd world countries amoung people who live in filth and poverty it is often a death sentence. Monica has been very sick. This last week she did look a bit better though, thank Jesus... She has two boys, Hugo and Nacho, who's pics have made it into past updates.

Tomorrow Jonny and I will be heading toward the border. We should arrive in Tulsa late on Tuesday if the Lord wills. Please pray for safe and smooth travels.
Also please keep Rancho Maranatha in your prayers! The ministry continues every morning. Every day there are new challenges and struggles. There are few laborers and so very much to do!!! Thankfully our Lord is faithful!!!
Love to All!

It's Sunday, communion Sunday. . I'm sitting here enjoying a monstrous bag of peanut M&M's. Dave and Cher Bales, I LOVE YOU GUYS. And not just because you buy me chocolate ;)
I am so blessed. The Lord is giving me a glimpse of how much He cares for me. How He uses other people to love on me. Such a blessing...........

I have a visitor right now. My brother, Jonny, is here!!!! It is such a blessing to have him here. He has been working hard and making me laugh alot. Jo and Jerry Farabough gave Jonny a ride down here. It's so great to have them back at the ranch. We have missed them terribly this summer.
On Friday night we went to Las Minitas, Jonny, Lolita, and I had to ride in the back of the truck.... He's been complaining ever since that his butt and his back hurt. He's gotten soft since leaving MX. Last night we took him to Alamos for tacos. With the first taco half way in his mouth he proudly declared that the first bite was for Gabe! So Gabe, there you have it. He had a happy tummy. We made it ever happier afterwards by stopping in the 'Michoacana' for a "fresas con crema' (strawberries with cream). Yummy stuff....
Right now he is on his way to Las Minitas again!!! Not in the back of the pick up truck this time though. He's with Rogelio going to pick up the people for church.

Jonny's arrival has made my departure reality for me.... 9 days....scary....... And yet very exciting as well. I cannot wait to embrace my family. I have missed them terribly. I also can't wait to see my home church, CFC.

Lord willing Dan and Ana will be heading to Tucson tomorrow to pick up Roshon, Aaileyah, and Obed. They should be home at the latest on Thursday.

Being the beginning of the month it is 'despensa' time again. This morning Jo and I put all the bags together. They will be despersed this afternoon after church. They are so many people in need of the help.
