Hola Everyone! I just talked with my Dad in Alberta and it is the time of year where the combines are humming and frost is threatening. Here in Hermosillo we are just waiting for the weather to get nice (day-time highs down into the low 30C’s) so we can enjoy the outdoors for a few […]
This past Saturday, Shelli put on a Bible Safari and Creative Toolbox workshop at the Northwest Mennonite Annual Conference at Camp Caroline, Alberta. Shelli and her team (from the Arbol de Vida church) have done this workshop many times in Mexico, Cuba and Canada with dozens of churches over the past 5 years. Just before […]

We’re getting down to the finishing touches on the upper floor of the Arbol De Vida ministry center! We thank the Lord for providing for this progress through the generosity of His family. Here is Luis Carlos, a long-time friend some of you may remember, laying tile in one of the dorm rooms.
