A Plastic Dump Truck and Children

Today was a strange day. Everything at the border went as usual, they looked and we paid. As we headed through town I saw flashing light and soon a siren. As I pulled over and got out to front the officer he extended his hand and I shook it. The load on the old Chevy towered above the cab and included couches, dining room table and six chairs. Also 2,000 lb of food and stuff stuffed in to fill the voids. The officer asked where we were going and I told him, he asked for the paperwork from the...

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...
