Late October 2016 found us traveling to McAllen, Texas where World Gospel Mission has been in ministry since the 1940’s.  Len shared a devotional with teachers and staff at Taylor Christian School and Betsy led chapels with this year’s students. We observed, discussed and listened with the goal of encouraging, resourcing and strategizing with those serving in educational endeavors. We also learned more about the ministries of Taylor Community Center and the soccer program outreach. As we met with several of the missionaries serving on the border, we sensed their heart and vision for impacting the surrounding community for Christ.

It was also a few days of joyful reunion! Several of the missionaries currently serving in McAllen had previously served in Bolivia. One evening during our visit we all shared a Bolivian meal complete with fantastic grilled meats, fried yucca and linaza (a flax seed drink). We also spent time with Miguel and Vivian Rodriguez, longtime friends from our years in Honduras, who are now pastoring a church in McAllen. God was so good to allow us to renew such precious friendships!
