Here we go again. Conscience International and Give Me Shelter Ministries heading way south of the border to continue our relief effort for the earthquake victims. This time with the help from Cooperative Baptist Fellowship of Florida, we are going down to start the re build process. We will be back in Ixtaltepec. I have a plan in place but ultimately I will let the community weigh in and give us their ideas.
This will be a community project overseen by the local church but will be implemented by the people. We are hoping that this will be a tool to bring people closer to the gospel. I arrived late Monday night only to find out that my partner Natanael was stuck on Mexico City due to an airline strike. He received a voucher for a new flight, had to spend the night in the airport and took a bus down to Oaxaca. Our trip south was delayed one day. Nata arrived late last night so now today we are on our way.
We stopped in Mitla on the way down to visit a wonderful family who has been such a great encouragement to us. After a short visit we headed over the mountains. Once we arrived we were greeted with smiles and friendship.
Tomorrow we will meet with the Pastor and local leaders to launch the project. Praise God from whom all blessings flow.
