Walter Thilo Deninger National Park

Last weekend we took some our youth to a National Park in which we went hiking, rappelling, and some did the high ropes course. Ruben and I had went the weekend prior to help a friend who took about 30 kids and we did the ropes course so we didn't do it again.  What I really wanted to do was rappel. I had never done it before and it was a 60 meter drop...almost 200 feet.  It was so much fun.  The park is beautiful and has tons of trails.  I can´t wait to go back and explore some more.  We had a great time with our youth even though Ruben and I were a little tired because the night before we were at an all night church service for the youth of our zone.  We didn't stay the whole night because we knew it would be impossible to do what we had planned with Conexion, our youth group, the next day. So we left around 1 in the morning but we heard that the Lord really moved in the wee hours of the morning.

Children's Outreach in Tenancingo

Last Saturday a friend of ours asked us to come be part of a children's outreach they were having at their church in the little town of Tenancingo.  I was asked to do an illustrated sermon for about 75 or so kids and we were also in charge of the games.  I spoke about the love of God being a free gift and used a real present as an illustration of how God's love is given to us; no charge that is why it is a gift.  It went well even though I was nervous and about 25 children or so decided to accept the gift of Jesus through His salvation.  After the service it was game time.  We had 10 stations rotating every 6 minutes so all the kids could play all the games.  Afterwards we were invited to eat Sopa de Pata (Cow foot soup).  I must admit it was must first time eating it because I'm not to keen on cow hoof but I took out all those parts and gave them to Ruben and I just ate the veggies and soup part and it was delicious.  Don't knock it til you try it! Believe it or not …
