It was unusually dry and hot in the states while we were there. One thing that sticks out to me about the weather here, is that it’s not as hot as it is in California, just a lot more humid :).
In our last update, we asked you to pray for our EL RETO youth outreach. We are pretty close to reaching our goal of $2,000 to fund this event that reaches out to so many students in this area who do not know Jesus. These are students who have not heard a clear message of who Jesus is and why he is important. In my opinion, that would make them “unreached”. We are two weeks into the event and will be posting some reports as we go on our blog. In the meantime, here is a link to the video of the first week.

- Mexican Religious Association. We are still working on this. We’ve run into many obstacles and hope that tomorrow we can get some questions answered. Thank you for your prayers.
- EL RETO. We have four more weeks of the event. Please continue to pray that students will be reached, the Lord’s guidance through the leadership, and safety for all people involved.
- Bible School. We’ll be starting our fall quarter the first week of October.
Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; His love endures forever!
