I am on my 6th trip to Mazatlan, Mexico, and my fourth trip to stay with Kyle and Ellen Benefield in the Dona Chonita neighborhood, where they are planting a Vineyard Church. They call their ministry … Mexico Mercy.
They have been in Mazatlan 5 1/2 years. They interned at the Vineyard Church in Urbana, IL, where they were my interns. I am enjoying renewing the friendship and playing with their boys Ethan (4) and August (2). Their third boy will be born in a few weeks.
The crowing roosters woke me up this morning. Then Kyle and I took a long walk and discussed our love of Scripture.
