The week after Easter, actually we left Sunday afternoon, I had the chance go down with our church to Mexico to a village that we've worked with for three years now. The village is called Villa Juarez, about 4 1/2 hours sounth of San Antonio. It's a small village with a really small church in the town. Over the last years we've built a parsonage, and added on a classroom. This year we put the roof on the classroom, and poured a patio between the church and the parsonage.

Every year we've also had the opportunity to put on a VBS in the church for anywhere between 30-40 children that show up each day. Having been there three years now the people of the village begin to look forward to us showing up. We actually get permission to block off a whole block of the street to play games with the children before and after the VBS.

It's been an incredible blessing every year. The people of this church give a lot of time to preparing meals for us while we're there. They do an incredible job of fixing us authentic Mexican, and not trying to make it any different than they would for themselves. The food is unbelievable.

Here is a video that I put together of our trip.
