It is that time of year again, when we ring out the current year (2016) and welcome the new year (2017). For most of the world, the new year is a time when life feels fresh and new.

On Friday, our small group from Christ Church crossed the U.S. - Mexico border on our way to the Center for Church Planting (CPI) Vision Weekend in Monterrey. Crossing the border was less involved than I thought it would be, but there was still paperwork to fill out, a deposit to be made in order to bring the car into Mexico, and dollars to turn into pesos. As we travelled...Keep Reading
