Things are getting back to normal in Pachuca after the circumstances surrounding the loss of our co-workers Bethany up in Cd. Obregón. After arriving back, I was quite sick for a couple weeks, and still have some on-going issues, but nothing to overly worry about. We had a baptism last night, which was a real joy to all present. A large number of unsaved family came out, and we also had David Alves Jr with us (passing through on the way home) and Paul Thiessen as well. Paul will be with us for the week with a series of Bible Readings on the Local Assembly.
We continue to appreciate your prayers for the work here, and for wisdom relative to the future.
Warmly in our Lord,

She had professed to be saved and was baptized with another group but after attending the Sunday night gospel meetings and hearing the gospel preached for several months, she realized that this was not something that she possessed, nor had she ever!
