Guatemala Trip

I had a real good trip to Guatemala the 23 through the 28th. We visited with the David Moore family, missionaries with MWBM. A big thank you to the Moore family for their hospitality.

Here is a slide show of pictures I took while we were there.

Thank you all for your prayers for world missions.

Roger Townsend is doing fine.

Glad to say that Roger Townsend is doing fine after their car accident. It did total their vehicle but sure glad they are alright now.

Sorry I didn't get this updated posted sooner.

Roger Townsend in wreck.

This afternoon my brother-in-law, Roger Townsend was in a bad car wreck. It took them some time to get him out of the vehicle and then transport him to the Greenville hospital. After several tests and cat scans they feel he has several broken ribs but that is all. They sent him home and as you can imagine, he will be in a lot of pain for several days. It certainly could have been much worse.
They were traveling north on Hwy 8 from Easley to Pickens when a lady either drunk or on dope came over the hill in the far left hand lane of a four lane highway. She hit a pickup head on then a second car, before then hitting Roger and his wife. Janice, Roger's wife was driving and managed to swerve enough to keep from hitting head on but that left Roger pinned in the car until the rescue unit was able to get the doors open.
We thank the Lord He was watching over them and they weren't hurt any worse.

Last service in Mexico

Thank you all for your prayers. Tomorrow we make the trip back to the USA. We will catch a bus in Toluca that will take us to the airport in Mexico City (30 million people that need Jesus.) From there it is just under a four hour trip to Atlanta and our good brother Dean Hamby will pick us up at the airport.

The Lord willing I will be back in the office tomorrow (I think :-) I might just sleep in and play with the grandson before going in!

Anyway you should be able to reach me if anyone needs us for anything.

Pray for the service tonight here in Atlacomulco. It will be our last service and we are looking for the Lord to bless and touch hearts.

We were with MWBM missionaries Kevin and Rebecca Sheridan in their service this morning. We had a good service and then some hot chocolate and sweet bread after the service. Sherry and Joanna sang and I preached. The Lord is blessing the Sheridans and the work there. Keep then in your prayers.
