Here is the Mexico missions trip video that was shown last Sunday at church! The video features video and photos primarily from Pozo de Jarillas, the town of about 1,700 people where we worked.

 and a few more photos…


We poured and moved a lot of concrete slabs like this one

It was common to see pigs, goats, mules, and sheep running around the town. Here you can also see the condition of the roads in Pozo de Jarillas.


The Deatricks, McGregers, Oswalds, Phillips, and Hardens safely returned from the missions trip on Sunday evening! We had a really successful trip with a lot of good memories. Thanks so much for your prayers and support. It was really cool that our church was able to send 10% of its members on a missions trip. Not many churches can say that.

Please make sure you’re at ARBC on Sunday, July 29th! We’ll be telling our stories about the trip and showing you photos and videos.

Here are a few photos of the trip until then (click for larger images)…

I’ll be posting more photos and videos from our trip on this site soon.

Also, special thanks to Dennis and Carla for dropping us off and picking us up from the airport!

I’ll soon be on the Mexico Missions Trip, July 5th through the 15th. Check out our Mexico Missions Trip page for details about where we are going and what we’ll be doing. Please pray for the Deatricks, Phillips, McGregers, Oswalds, Hardens, and the Mexican people we will be reaching. We’re all really excited and will bring back stories, photos, and videos!

Special thanks to Ryan for cleaning up! The grace with which he weilds a vaccuum is most impressive indeed.

This past Sunday was the first day for our new associate pastor, Brent Clark. We’d like to welcome him and his family to Iowa, and to Ashworth Road Baptist Church! Brent will be bringing some great ideas and leadership to our music and youth programs at ARBC!
