Church Planting among the Nahuatl

Weekend on the Ranch

Leave a comment

Last weekend we were able to have a little “Spanish” getaway to a small pueblo, San Andres. It is about a 45 minutes drive from Chihuahua city, and our host family, the Corrals, own a small one room ranch home on some property there. They invited us out there to spend time with them, and what a fabulous opportunity it was for relationship building and language practice.

We drove out Sunday afternoon and stayed until late in the evening on Monday. It was so relaxing, and just what we both needed after a bit of a discouraging week. We did alot of visiting, cooking some delicious Mexican food, took a trip to Cuauhtemoc a nearby town for some shopping, and enjoyed a nice bonfire, and hours of fellowship. Thank you all for praying for us this week, we sure have needed it and felt it. We know the Lord is taking us through these discouraging times to remind us of His incredible love and faithfulness and we have seen it in the way He has lifted us up through many encouraging notes and emails from alot of you.

Hope you enjoy these pictures from our time in San Andres.

Well known political figure, Pancho Villa was married to his legal wife in this church

It was Catholic...but really neat inside

Walking through town

We visited the cemetery where Pancho Villas one-year old daughter's is located

There were many old graves some from the mid 1800s
