Cocula with Juan

Brother Juan is a faithful evangelist who preaches in Centro. In spite of being elderly and frail (he's well into his 70's), and suffering from vision and hearing problems, he travels to different pueblos outside the city to preach the Gospel. Last Monday Josef and I accompanied him to the small town of Cocula, which is about 2 hours away from Guadalajara. It was a tremendous privilege and blessing to join this dear brother. His zeal for the Lord and the Gospel should put many of us to shame.

Just about every town in Latin America is built according to the same pattern. Each one has a main plaza (town square) in its center, next to the town's main Catholic cathedral and government building. People usually go there just to sit and hang out. It's the perfect place to preach.
