Did some traveling!
I was invited to visit some churches to share about La Luz Brilla to hopefully raise more needed support for this ministry. So, from November 9-20, I visited 5 cities in 11 days!
First stop was Baton Rouge, Louisiana!
Last June a team from Community Bible Church of Baton Rouge made their first (hopefully of many) trip to Guatemala! It was a great trip and we connected closely with this team.
They have quickly gotten involved with our ministries even having began supporting us as missionaries of their church!

I was invited to visit and get to know the whole church, and also share about La Luz Brilla.
I spent a few days there, they showed me around town, I spoke to all the combined adult and HS Sunday school classes, and was introduced to the church during the service!
They also arranged a dinner with all the members of the team from June with family members!
After church on Sunday, Pastor Steve and his wife hosted a lunch in their home, inviting the entire church and gave me more time to share about what we do and also La Luz Brilla!
|GO Missions Conference at Texas A&M (yes...it was coooold)|
After I left Baton Rouge I went to Dallas, then drove with some fellow Camino Global people to College Station and Texas A&M! ( who would of thought).
They have a 2 day missions conference there each year and there were almost 7,000 students there!
And it got coooooooooold while I was there.
I went from College Station up to Denton, TX to spend a couple of days visiting our friends at St. Andrew Presbyterian Church.
From Denton I traveled to Phoenix, AZ.
Finally a little warmth!
I spent a couple of days there with Desert View Baptist Church in Gilbert, AZ.
Before I arrived I did not know a single person, but this is the church that gave us the funds to open La Luz Brilla! So I was able to meet many people and thank them for the blessing they have already been!
They gave me all the time I wanted to share, so I spoke for about 20 minutes at each of the 3 services Sunday morning! (or maybe a tad more ;))
We are excited that they are wanting to send a team to paint La Luz Brilla in 2013!
It was a very busy 11 days but the Lord allowed me to meet LOTS of new people and we look forward to building these relationships!
