Rainy Season

Waterfalls are plentiful in the area at this time.


























Rainy House






















We just thought this sign was funny. It offers free beer with cement purchase. You can build your belly and your house at the same event.






















Taxi- maby they are going to a house building.























El Tule, near Oaxaca City; largest tree (around anyway) in the world.





























The kids and Chris in Oaxaca























Elizabeth at Monte Alban





















Monte Alban is just outide Oaxaca City. It is a pre-hispanic city that has been uncovered - pretty interesting.

Lily takes a guitar lesson from Jim






















Clouds coming in





















Corn everywhere






We really liked this pic because it shows 3 generations. The mom in the tradional hand made dresses and the daughter with tradional but store bought skirt and blouse and the granddaughter in pants. All the women dress in these with a few exceptions. The little girls usually follow also with the floral skirts but sometimes not.



Another mom and kids. The ladies all carry their babies like this, more often on their backs. With the rough roads and steep hills, it seems to work well. They certainly seem to have mastered it anyway.



Women cooking together

About Me

I met Jesus in March 1997 and soon after I began the practice of writing things down that were happening in my life with the Lord. Over the years, in the rare times that I have looked back into older journals, I have found that the things the Lord was showing me then are the same things He is showing me now. This does not make them less helpful, on the contrary, it makes them more helpful. God is exactly who He says He is and is doing all that He said He would. We need to be reminded of God and His faithfulness. The intention of this blog is to encourage God's people to continue and to grow in their confidence in Jesus Christ. The things posted here are from my journal and are meant to be an example of God's love and help as He loves and helps me. I would expect that you would have reason to trust Jesus Christ with your life (and death) if you haven't heard about Him so I invite you to go to my page "About Jesus" to see why you can and should have every confidence in Jesus and Jesus only for all things.
