Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,
We had 5 adults who were baptized today.... We prayed for our missionaries teaching English out in the Mayan Village of Chan Chen and we also prayed for Alfonso, we are sending him out as a missionary from our church to serve the Lord in South Carolina this summer. You will be hearing more about this in the up coming blogs. Alfonso is 17 and is going to help Ocean View Baptist Church reach out to Spanish speakers in SC this summer. Today I baptized a new believer who is 73 years of ages and we are sending a 17 year old out on mission. If you want to judge the faithfulness of our new church by the young and the old today we passed the test.

Today we returned to Chanchen to host our last sports camps. It was a very beautiful sunny day but hot. On the way we stopped off to view the crocodiles in the lake in Coba which where sunning beside the precarious stick dock, as we walked out on the dock I wondered to myself, how many big Americans can this dock hold. Just then the one Mexican made a brisk exit which may have answered my questions.
We started the day off in Chanchen with sports with the little ones after words Chuck gave his testimony. In the afternoon we returned to do sports camps, and this time some of the high school age kids were at the park. At first they did not want to participate especially not in basketball but as soon as Kaylee decided to play we had some volunteers. We found that we gringos are much more comfortable playing basketball, which did not last long. Pretty soon the Mayan boys decided that we should play something more to their liking. So we moved to the soccer field for a demoralizing game in which our goalies felt like they where playing one way dodge ball instead of soccer. After the game Blake learned that butt slaps are not culturally accepted as he gave high fives followed by brisk slap on the rear, which earned him some nervous laughs. We finished our last day of ministry by finishing the story of the soccer ball and giving out 11 soccer balls, 4 to kids, 5 to the school, and 2 to some of the teachers.
On our way back we blew the tread off of one of our tires in the van. Kelly steered us to a safe stop on the side of the road and the team got to work. Blake, Chuck, Dusty, and Jerry lined up in the road to warn traffic to give us safe berth. With their orange shirts they looked like four orange cones. By God's grace we have been very blessed this trip, we have had safe travels thus far, including our mini adventure with the blown tire. We have also been blessed with favorable weather this week; the weather man called for 100% chance of rain, however we did not get rained out once. Tomorrow is our fun day and then Saturday we will be returning home.
Tomorrow will be a day of celebration as we praise the Lord for all His did through this team
