Arrived Safely in Mexico
We left the church this morning at 11am. We hit rain up in the mountains and it didn't let up the whole way to Ensenata. The road to the border crossing we were going to take was closed because of an accident, so we ended up stuck in traffic. I am driving our brand new church van, and, wouldn't you know it, someone rear-ended me in San Diego. No one was injured, and no damage to the van, thank goodness. The other guy wasn't so furtunate. He rammed the trailer hitch and poked a hole in his radiator. After getting his information we were on our way. Went through the border at Tijuana with no issues. Drove down the coast and finally turned off onto a very muddy, incredibly bumpy road which we took for about 15 miles to our ranch. When we arrived we had dinner with the entire team (about 75 people) then got settled into our quarters for the night. The girls and I have our own home. We are staying in the exact type of loft houses that we are building for 5 families on this trip. No electricity in the cabins (only in the dining hall). Roughing it. But I turned on my computer to check the time and found we had wireless. Go figure. lol! Heading to bed. Breakfast at 6:30 a.m. - and you know what a sucker I am for early mornings!
