New Mexico

I've been visiting old and new partnering churches in New Mexico!

My awesome travel companions, Jose and Audrey Banales :)  They've connected me with wonderful churches in New Mexico who love, give, and pray for God's work in Mozambique.  

The first stop was Hobbs, NM.

Speaking at Fellowship of Believers Church in Hobbs.

It was a joy to visit with the Fellowship of Believers church family!

After spending a night in Ruidoso, we headed for the mountains of Red River...and a lot more snow!  

Here we are shoveling the front steps of Carlos and Tina's house, where we stayed. At one point as I was shoveling snow off the top deck, I "accidentally" shoved a pile of snow onto Jose's head below...whoops >:)   

Jose and Audrey...looking innocent... 

...behold ammunition for the Banales Revenge!
I was ambushed on the front steps by the snowball slinging duo >:)

Before speaking at Faith Mountain Fellowship in Red River, I tried to teach everyone a Mozambican Chope dance :) 

Chope Dancers!

It was such a blessing to visit with these partnering churches in New Mexico!
