Looking into Another Country

After we visited Mom’s childhood places, we headed out of town. As we drove, we saw the flag of Mexico flying not too far from the interstate. Going along the interstate, we were amazed to see that Mexico was literally just right next to us–it was so clear by the stark contrast. The border was seen clearly by a large fence stretching for a long distance. We saw small, humble dwellings scattered across the hill, dirt roads, and more: showing the poverty that many live in.

May we never take for granted anything that we have. So many have so little. Speaking of another country, let’s look forward to our Heavenly Country!

“For they that say such things declare plainly that they seek a country. . .  But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city” (Hebrews 11:14, 15).

We are now in Las Cruces, parked for the night.

  1. Have a restful night, Maxwell family! So glad and thankful that things are going along well. Thank you for the picture-a great reminder of all we have. Let us never take for granted… Safe travels for you all tomorrow. You will be in my prayers! God Bless, Debbie

  2. Wow, what an image! I didn’t realize the interstate was that close to not only the border, but even homes. Praying for safe travels, open hearts, changed lives…and even some fun learning experiences sprinkled in between all of that!

  3. I have been on many mission trips to Mexico and it is heartbreaking the poverty people live in.

    I loved seeing the photos from the conference. Continued prayers for safe travels.

    Blessings, Mrs. Mari

  4. Dearest Maxwell Family,

    We are praying for you!! Thank you for the reminder, Sarah, to not take the way we live for granted – it is a goal of mine to remember this often. We LOVE seeing the photographs of the places you are visiting – we do not have the ability to travel, and it gives us a glimpse of so many things!

    Stephanie for us all
