Dawn and Vicente after the mordida

Dawn and Vicente after the mordida – you might say they enjoyed their cake!

Surprise! That’s what our family and a friends yelled out as my wife walked into the door last night. We celebrated Dawn’s birthday with people we love here on the border. God has blessed us with a number of wonderful relationships!

One of the families that we’ve gotten close to is the Salinas family. Vicente and I go out every week to evangelize and promote our ESL class. His son, Vicente Jr. recently reached a milestone as he just turned 20. We celebrated Dawn and Vicente’s birthday together.

What a great time we enjoyed with everyone that joined us for the festivities. The festive occasion reminded me of how privileged I am to have just a good wife, and so many wonderful friends.

We love what we do here, and a lot of that has to do with the people we are ministering with. We are on a journey with Jesus, but this journey is not one of solitude. Thank you Lord that you’ve surrounded us with such a wonderful family and friends!

Our celebration was extra special, because Dawn’s parents and Jonathan were also able to be here. They joined in the festivities!

I think to of the many friends we have in other places who love us, and hold us up in prayer. The Lord is giving us some wonderful opportunities as he opens doors for us, and we are so thankful that we are not going it alone!

In His Grip, Dave
