Sunday in San Rafael

Yesterday our family spent the day with our Bible Methodist people in the village of San Rafael. This village is about an hour's drive from our home in Saltillo. Our Bible Methodist people from the village of La Boca dismissed their services for the day to come and be with us in San Rafael.

We attended and participated in Sunday School in the morning, enjoyed a wonderful meal and great fellowship at the home of our friends, Daniel and Lorena Pena and their children, and we sang and Marc preached in the evening service. We felt the Lord's presence with us as we worshipped together and it was so great to be with our Pastor Alejandro and his wife and family and all our friends in San Rafael and also Pastor Alfonso and people from La Boca.

Jordan talking with his friend Josue after church.

Enjoying lunch (chicken cooked in foil pockets with potatoes, carrots and peppers; rice and the most delicious corn tortillas I've ever eaten)

Hermano Daniel leads the singing and testimony part of the service - he does a great job.

Some of the men sang a special song in the service last night. They sang "The Fight is On" "La Lucha Sigue"- one of their favorites here in Mexico.

Jordan took the offering in the evening service.

Sorry for the poor quality of these next 2 pictures. Marc and I sang a special song with Daniel before Marc preached. We sang "Yes, I Know" / " Si, Yo Se". I always enjoy harmonizing and singing in Spanish.

The Lord helped Marc preach last night on "Como Entrar en el Reino de Dios"/ How to Enter the Kingdom of God.

Another really fun thing about yesterday was my flour tortilla making lesson...check back for pics and details!

Enjoy your Monday!

Voy escribiendo en castellano pese a que soy un "Hoosier" que actualmente radica en el estado de Ohio. :-)
Creo que podrían utilizar algunos de los materiales que están disponibles através de mi página web El Cristianismo Primitivo.
Allí hay libros, folletos, prédicas y música, todo gratuito.
Pasadlo bien,
