July 26, Iglesia El Vergel, Guadalajara, Mexico
Saturday 7:00 p.m.:
Greetings from Mexico’s second largest city (around 8 million in the metro area). The city is reasonably flat, with some rolling hills, and then the occasional hill bumping up off the plateau. Today is unusual for this time of year in that there has been no rain today. So it’s a gorgeous day! My morning walk was just PERFECT, very refreshing morning air. Approaching the city by plane last night brought us through some most interesting cloud formations. The people here are extremely warm and friendly, just delightful folks. I arrived last night too late to make the meeting, so I brought today the message I was planning for Friday night. On being a friend of the bridegroom. Getting the sound to work was a bumpy beginning, but we got it going, and off we went. I sensed the Lord’s help and grace in the delivery. Afterwards they treated me to a Mexican dinner — it was almost like having shared fajitas. The food was placed in the center of the table, and everyone just helped themselves. Great fellowship, some amazing new friends. It is a high honor, in the kingdom, to share with such excellent saints.
I will be collected tomorrow at 9:30 a.m. for the 10:00 service, and will likely begin preaching around 11:00. Then we will have to go almost directly from the platform to the getaway car, to whisk me off to the airport, for a 2:45 pm departure for Houston. Tight, but doable. Sunday 4:00 p.m.:
Hi from the sky. The Lord was with us strongly today in the ministry of the eye covenant message. His presence was so meaningful to me. When I was done I slipped out quickly for the airport, so I don’t really know what kind of response and ministry took place after I left, but the presence of the Lord in the midst was tangible. It was such a quick trip, in and out, but even so I am so grateful to God for enlarging my heart and family still more.
