Stuck in the States

“A person may plan his own journey, but the LORD directs his steps.”
Pr 16:9 (God’s Word Version)

We sold our house, parted with most of our material possessions and spent the last five weeks traveling the heartland. My original plan had us in Mexico by the first week in October. Instead we are stuck in Houston with our life packed in our truck struggling with the Mexican consulate to allow us permission to take it across the border.

Mexico or bust

It is easy to get frustrated when things don’t work out the way we planned, but when we step back and remember that God is in control we have peace knowing that He can see the bigger picture and His purposes extend way beyond our own. So instead of being anxious we are enjoying the extra time with Ivonne’s family in Houston and they are loving the time with the grand kids.

“And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.”
Romans 8:28 (KJV)

About Ron

At the end of September 2008, Ron and Ivonne Mouser abandoned all of their earthly possessions that wouldn’t fit in their truck and moved to Arriaga Chiapas, Mexico with their two small children. In Arriaga, they helped administrate an orphanage, shared the pastoral responsibilities of a local church and built a thriving youth ministry. At the end of 2011 they left Arriaga to pioneer a new work among the marginalized people groups living in the poorest part of Chiapas near the city of Comitán.
