With joy you will draw water …. (Isaiah 12 – Songs of Praise)

1 In that day you will say:
“I will praise you, O LORD.
Although you were angry with me,
your anger has turned away
and you have comforted me.
2 Surely God is my salvation;
I will trust and not be afraid.
The LORD, the LORD, is my strength and my song;
he has become my salvation.”
3 With joy you will draw water
from the wells of salvation
.
4 In that day you will say: “Give thanks to the LORD, call on his name;
make known among the nations what he has done,
and proclaim that his name is exalted.
5 Sing to the LORD, for he has done glorious things;
let this be known to all the world.
6 Shout aloud and sing for joy, people of Zion,
for great is the Holy One of Israel among you.”

Monterrey and El Carmen

Really great times with Greg and Jan in Northern Mexico…. also, we squeezed in a trip Matamoros somehow. We were busy in the streets, the bible school and with friends, but it was really a blessing.

This was my second time to Northern Mexico since I was 17 years old (1st return was Piedras Negras 2004), and my first time to Monterrey. It is really a nice city (not to mention dangerous!) and I will definitely be planning to go back. We are talking about conquering a nearby mountain that dealt Greg some misery last time he climbed it… sounds like fun (sort of)!
