A Trip To Northern Mexico

Hello out there, this is Dennis and we finally made it back down here to Oaxaca after our trip to the frozen northlands. I just want to give a quick update about what we did up there. First of all Laurita was denied her visa at the US Consulate in Monterrey. The guy asked a couple questions, didn’t even look at her documents and said no. I called the National Visa Center the other day and unfortunately they confirmed that she was just unlucky and got a guy in a bad mood that day. It’s too bad that everything can get thrown overboard just because an employee at the consulate is having a bad day, but that’s the truth of it. They told us to try again, so we are. Her new appointment is on April 7, this time in Mexico City. We appreciate everyone’s prayers on this, it costs 170.00 American dollars every time we try, plus all the traveling to get to wherever the appointment is. Fortunately we can try as many times as we want, so we’ll keep trying. We need her to have this by September, but before the summer would be even better.

     Also, we spent a little over a week in Veracruz visiting family. My family and I came from Kansas to Mexico and we rushed almost immediately to Oaxaca, so Elda and the kids only had one day with her parents. For those who don’t know Elda & I have been trying to buy a property in Platon Sanchez, Veracruz so that we can build a church there for Elda’s dad, Pastor Chilo. We finally got that done, but we had to stay there several days in order to get the papers done. We have the property now and we’re ready to start construction on the church (I need to raise more money).

     Javier, Areli & Pastor Pascual have been working a lot on the island. Areli’s been posting pictures and if you can access Javier’s personal Facebook page, he has been posting pictures there. It looks like he got the kitchen roof rethatched and the outside part raised up so a taller human can walk through there without cracking their head open. Also it looks like our neighbor Tomas got the concrete floor done for the other cabin. We are at Pascual’s house now in El Fortin Uno Chiltepec and we’re heading to the island tomorrow. I’m anxious to get there and see what all they did. I’m posting some pictures here of our trip north and back and I’ll get internet again probably when we leave the island to go to Mexico City for Laurita’s appointment (the week after next) and I’ll probably have more pictures to post. Remember you can see the pictures and newsletters on our Facebook pages at Dayspring Outreach Ministries; Dayspring Missionary Training; Isla Soyaltepec Dayspring Mission. Also Stephanie, Ashlynn, Yared & Dani (All DMT students from last year) are currently working at our mission in Doctor Arroyo and you can follow them on that Facebook page at Dayspring Outreach in Dr Arroyo.

Dios les bendiga
