As we go to churches this fall we are sharing this video of our ministry for 2012. Here’s what we do in Latin America:
Since we’re in Florida for a few months, Janell’s dad got Shiloh and her cousin Kinsley a Barbie Jeep. It’s pretty stinking cool, and she loves it.

Although our normal life is in Mexico City, we will be spending the rest of 2012 in Florida.
The purpose of our trip is to share about the ministry with people who don’t know what we do and to share the vision for the future with our current support team.
We’ll be sharing in churches all throughout Florida, and we’ll also be taking time to talk with people on an individual basis. We are going to be busy!
Tomorrow I’ll be sharing at a youth ministry workshop in Mexico City.
I was invited by some youth workers I met at a Youth Specialties conference here, and I’m looking forward to being with them.
They asked me to come to their church and do a 2 hour conference on youth ministry. So, I’ll head over to the other side of the city and teach some youth ministry basics. I’ll be teaching on some topics I’ve been blogging about over at ministeriojuvenil.com.
It should be lots of fun.
I’d appreciate it if you’d pray for me.
September is my favorite month to live in Mexico. Since Independence Day is in September, there are vendors everywhere selling Mexican flags, and the red, white, and green is all over. It’s a very patriotic time.
This past weekend we celebrated Independence Day by going to a party with the director of the Seminary’s church, and our baby girl dressed up in her Mexican dress. She doesn’t look much like a little Mexican girl, but she is pretty cute.
The last week I was quiet on Facebook, Twitter, and here mostly because we were extremely busy.
Earlier this year, the Mexican Baptist Theological Seminary made an agreement with the Golden Gate Baptist Theological Seminary in California which, among other things, brings in visiting professors to Mexico every once in a while to teach intensive courses.
Last week was the first time we had some professors visit, and guess who got to be the host? That’s right: yours truly. It was great to have the two visiting professors here, and it was nice to meet them both. The students had a great week with them, too.
I was also teaching a youth ministry course last week. Each day from 8 AM until 2 PM I had “Principles of Youth Ministry” class with the freshmen and a few visiting (hopefully soon to be freshmen) students.
We had a great, yet exhausting week.
This week we start the official course schedules at the Seminary. I’ll be teaching “Ministry to Troubled Youth” and “Youth Culture.
