Loaves and Fishes

As we pulled up to the Mexican border early this morning I was not aware of the lessons God would show us today. I got out of the truck as another truck pulled alongside at the declaration office. The roof rack on his truck was piled high with lumber and the bed was also filled. I said to the man you have a large load. He gave me a pleasant smile and we started to talk. As the guard came across to look at our loads he said that he also helps a rehab center. Soon we were talking about people...

The Bare Backed Preacher

As the years go by and the many stories pile up every once in a while things happen that show me a clear view of God’s blessings in our work south of the border. Saturday 7:30 am I pulled into the Mexican border with our truck once again over-loaded. As I looked across to the guard that was coming to inspect the mighty load on the old Chevy I cringed. It was the woman border guard that I have had many times. She always seemed grumpy in the past and really strict and down to the business at...

April in Mexico

This Saturday Leslie and I will head south to bring food to the folks we serve. The new office at the men’s rehab center is ready for the windows. We had a donation of windows last summer and we had no idea were we would use them. God often provides things for our work way before we need them. We have learned that God likes when we trust that He has a plain for our lives and the things He provides. On April 16th we have a team of 20 students and staff from the Providence Christian College...

Children and Water

With the truck packed and ready to go I was thinking about the men at the men’s center in El Porvenir. This trip south was for them and to provide them with 120lb of chicken for the party to celebrate the two years in the business of saving lost souls. Leslie and I have worked with this center from its start. With two old trailers and a tarp pulled between them made the makeshift kitchen and housing for the center. The men would worship in the end of the kitchen on chairs lined up around the...

Food and Two Trucks

As we roll back our trips to Mexico to every other week this year it seems that one truck will not carry everything we need to bring. The four large coolers were filled with frozen meat. And one small cooler about the size of Brenda’s freezer was loaded into the Dodge. The 275 gallon water tank and two large chairs filled Leslie’s truck. The old Chevy had a 6 burner stove and a two foot gas griddle that we picked up in San Diego. They were to be picked up by a team from northern CA on...

New year in Mexico

Friday morning found the old Chevy heading south to Mexico. At 4:00 am is when I pulled out of my drive in Escondido for the long drive. I arrived at the border at 6:00 am and the guard walked over to see what I had in the back of the truck. Today I had 20 bundles of shingles for the rehab center at Blue Mountain. They had called to tell me that the roof was leaking on their kitchen and one of the dorm buildings. The guard looked at the roofing and the 750 lb of food smiled and said, “Today...
