On the Lord’s Day we drove to Guadalajara and participated in a service there at Jorge’s church. His father is the pastor. It was a beautiful service. We sang and Mr. Gothard preached on meditation. After the service we went to the Soreno’s beautiful home for an afternoon of feasting and Christian fellowship. At the close of the afternoon we all gathered to sing Amazing Grace in Spanish and in English and our hosts told us why they wanted to treat us to such a feast.
Their hearts were filled with gratitude because it was American missionaries that first brought the gospel to their people.
We are leaving Chapala today and going back to Monterrey. The trip can be done in ten hours. It took us eighteen last time. We hope to trim it to twelve hours this time by shortening our stops. It is a beautiful drive. The Sierra Madre’s are in sight for the entire trip. There will be lessons on the way. I will be teaching the importance of Christian biography, how the mine the spiritual riches from biography and giving them an example from the life of Wilfred Grenfell.
