harnessing the power of photography for good

fun in oaxaca…

cyndy, terry, jim and me came down early to visit some of the ruins in oaxaca.  we had a chance to see mt alban, the ruins at mitla, and hike on and around the frozen waterfalls of hierve el agua.  we got to sample plenty of delicious traditional oaxaqueñan food and see their culture up close and personal in the zocalo (center of the city).  we got to visit some of the surrounding towns and witness “market day,” when all the local farmers bring their produce, meats, and artisan come and sell their crafts.   we also got to visit pastor chable’ on his farm, where he is breeding rabbits, chickens, goats and cows for food.  and we witnessed mounting day.

the weather has been beautiful and as we prepare for ministry week, im ready to see God work!  most of the men who are working this week have arrived already into oaxaca, and cyndy is feeling quite “royal!”  since she will be the only gal with 20+ guys this week, she is the queen.

praise God for His mercy and grace.  that we get to come along side Him and be part of His plan to share Jesus with those around us in Oaxaca!

Colossians 3:17
And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.
