For months now, every week Daniel has gone out to preach in the village of Jesus Maria.
Before we went north for Samuel's birth, Daniel would go to the village, sit under the patio of one of the houses there and preach to all who would come.
For the past month, Daniel's gone every week on Tuesday. He leaves after breakfast, I pack him a lunch, and he gets home late at night. It takes over an hour alone to get to the village. It's way off the main road back into the desert.
Beyond the village there are more houses...20, 30, 45 minutes apart from each other way out in the middle of nowhere. Down dry creek beds or dusty paths you can travel for hours.
Daniel goes from house to house bringing the gospel to any who will listen.
Daniel's brother took some pictures last Tuesday that I wanted to share with you.
All the houses are made of adobe with palm roofs.
They hiked down and found a group of men working on a fake corral (a temporary corral they use when they need to round up their cattle to take to town to sell).
Hiking down the creek to where the men were working
This is Antonio...he and his wife and their 7 year old boy live right before Jesus Maria. His wife told Daniel a couple weeks ago that she believes in Jesus as her Savior and would like to come to church if we can figure out a way to get her there. Daniel's been preaching to Antonio for months...he hasn't believed but continues to listen.
Daniel met this man Tuesday and he asked Daniel to come back next week and go to his house.
Daniel said they just sat there for over 2 hours listening to Daniel share the gospel and asking him questions
Daniel will continue to go and preach. Please pray that the Holy Spirit will convict these men of their sin and need for a Savior.
