Adios, Tijuana

Three years ago today, I arrived for the very first time in Tijuana, México, leading an outreach team from YWAM Canada. We fell in love with this city, its people, and the YWAM staff that we met and worked alongside.

Within a matter of months, our whole family relocated from Canada to Tijuana, and we began the Mexican chapter of our journey.

And now, three years to the day, we are hitting the road for the return trip to Canada. With the usual mix of emotions, we say good-bye to treasured friends & co-workers, ministry that we found incredibly rewarding even when it was difficult, and a city & people that Jesus loves and shed His blood for.

And in a couple of days, we will re-enter Kelowna, and begin yet another season in the journey.

2011: What will be is yet to be seen

Happy New Year!
With all the focus on "leaders" these days, this picture may serve as an encouraging metaphor for those who are "followers".
