Mexicali - Day 1
Pastor Paul and I arrived in Mexicali this evening. We left San Bernardino about 1:30 pm and had a nice drive down into Mexico. Crossing the border was no problem at all and we felt a very warm presence as we entered into the country.
From the border it was about a 30 minute drive to the base camp in Mexicali. It took a little while to find it, as there are no street signs. We did get off the main road once and got a little stuck in some mud, but a really nice man came and helped push us out.
When we arrived at Base Camp, Israel, the in country missionary and a native of Mexicali, welcomed us into their home. We visited for a while and then headed to dinner. Israel took us to a great restaurant called Las Brasas. We discussed life in Mexicali and what kind of ministry opportunities there are for us here. It looks like the primary ministry we will be doing is a VBS for the kids of the church we partner with. We will be meeting a few pastors tomorrow and hopefully will decide which church we want to partner with when we come back in March.
Please be praying for us as we are down here, and be praying for God's call on you to come with us.
