The conference itself was such a blessing. The worship was incredible and I saw friends from Culiacán that I haven't seen in a year. The theme was "New Wineskins" and covered the idea of how missions in evolving from the mere preaching of the past to cultural relativism today. I got to be reminded of why I want to serve God in this field and how God has a specific call for me in missions. It was a great weekend and I felt refreshed upon returning to Porvenir. God is so good to provide things like this to keep us going and to encourage us...
And we're off!
I got hit twice by snow... in Mexico! Who would have thought...
The drive was gorgeous! I have never seen so many rocks in one place.
Windy roads in a huge 14 passenger van? Yes!
A distant view of Borego Springs, CA.
"With wet pavement, drive with precaution." There was some ice...
Being U2... no biggie.
A stop at the salt flats on the way home was worth the sketchy U-turn to get there.
We tried eating the salt... it was saltier than salt if that is possible.
Cracked and ready for some rain.
On top of staying in a hotel with a heater (a novel concept for us) we got amazing Chinese food... which apparently Mexicali is famous for. El Dragon for the win!
