Wow. whatta a time. the BlackJack Clan just returned from a month in Xalapa, Vera Cruz Mexico. It was Awesome! The Church was awesome, the people were awesome, the Clima was awesome, the house was awesome & the food was awesome. EVERYTHING was awesome. We went down to encourage and help out in any way, our sister church there in Vera Cruz. I will always cherish my time there with Pastor Sergio. A genuine, great, funny, godly man. Also my time with Pastor Julio, I will never forget. It was so good to see BlackJane & Erica (Julios Wife) hit it off and start a wonderful friendship. It was awesome to see the Little BlackJacks hit it off with their kids. Great times with Selva (yes thats her name! it means Jungle!), Rauol & Carmen, Sergio & Eda, Cesar & Vicky, Rene & Abril, Lupita, Liz, juan Carlo, Deborah… we have fallen in love with our church & the People of Xalapa. Special thanks to Cesar & Vicky, for spending 8 hours with us in the little town of Naolinco, shopping for that special purse(s) for my wifes birthday! We cried all the way home because we didn’t get to eat any of Dona Vicky’s shrimp soup (hot as Fire!), but we quenched our tears in the Ocean there at the Lazy little town of “Casitas”. the surf was good, the sand clean, and the sun HOT! My Kids will never forget their first time at the beach.

Xalapa Recon…




Well It’s about time! Yes, I have been away for a while. I will be in and out throughout the summer but that just how it goes in my line of work! I just returned AGAIN from Xalapa! Wes, Miguel, and myself went down for two days to meet with the Elders of IBUC Xalapa to Plan a Mission trip for this Summer. It turned out Awesome. We got the Business part knocked out and then we went on a Food bindge! Food is such a wonderful part of the Mexican Culture! we ate at the best dang steak place in Mexico. It’s called Asadero Cien. the Trail Dust ain’t got nothin on them! Actually, I would rate them EQUAL! Thats High talkin from me, as I haven’t found a steak house ANYWHERE that can come even close to the Trail Dust (the one in Aubrey, Texas that is…my home town.). Los Antojos were Awesome! Great little place with a wonderful “ambiance” (thats a big word for me). I ate @ the Rotunda back in 04′ & it was mighty fine eatin back then.
