Tomorrow in En Vivo, we are starting a three week series called "Dangerous", dangerous book, people, and faith. I think Saul that later becomes Paul always lived in a moment he would die for after his encounter with God. He lived dangerously for God and it eventually got him killed, just like Jesus lived in moments he would die for, serving people he did die for, and calls us to do the same.
This past weekend we went on our spring retreat to Ixmiquilpan, Hildalgo. The place we stayed was great for a retreat from Puebla and "normal, crazy, busy" life. We heard three great talks from our dear friend Juanita Del Angel on walking intimately with God and living out our faith, spent most of Saturday at a water park laughing, soaking up the sun, and swing off ropes, played flamingo soccer where the guys have to hop on one foot, baptized Rada, and hung out at night like a big family.
|Juanita during first talk|
|I landed sideways...it hurt|
|some people needed their rest|
|the guys fell down a lot|
|but still were able to score and beat the girls in overtime|
|Tania, baptized a few weeks ago, Me, Kami, Rada and Juanita before the baptism|
|taking the plunge|
|Woohoo!!! I almost completely fell in as well|
I mentioned earlier in one of the captions about Tania being baptized a few weeks earlier. We actually baptized two people from the community that day. Tania and Carlos. After church one Sunday, over 30 of us piled in cars, drove 45 minutes to a nearby town where they sell trout at many restaurants that have a river flowing through them. We ate lunch together and then baptized Tania and Carlos right next to where we were eating. It was very cool and drew a crowd so much to where when students would go order quesadillas or something close but not at the restaurant, the people would say, "oh yeah, the tables where the baptisms are happening". It was a great way to celebrate the step of faith these two were taking.
|There were rope swings at this place too!!!|

These are moments I would die for.
