Today was the “Despedida”, or goodbye party for our pastor and his family at our church here in Mexico. They are leaving to work in Houston, Texas, at a hispanic church there. I preached the message today, and I spoke about the fact that we are not losing a pastor, but we are sending a missionary family. There are 800,000 people in Houston that speak Spanish, so the pastor and his family are definitely going to be missionaries there. I spoke on God’s call of Abraham in Genesis 12:1-3 and how we must be willing to leave some things behind, expect some unknown things, and then God will bless us and we will be a blessing. It was a difficult sermon to preach (they gave me a few days notice), but overall it went well. Then we had a meal together after church. All of the people at church love Nathan. Next Sunday, we will officially “present” him before the church.
