Our Chiapas team goes where most people don’t want to go.  It takes several days to arrive in these remote locations in the mountains of southern Mexico.  However, it is always worth it.  We assist the local Christians in the village to build new a new church building.  The people are always extremely grateful!  With no hotels nearby, it’s always time to break out the tents!  Running water and bathrooms are scarce but God always takes care of our every need!  Please pray for God to continue to provide men who don’t mind getting a little bit dirty and roughing it.
