Some people are confused about eating on the streets in Mexico and I can understand that. The government says not to do it. They don’t advertise reasons telling one how to detect good places from bad, or any other thing; they just tell us not to do it, flat out. But, I will say this, some times I’ve have been happy to have eaten where I did and other times, much less than happy. One can get amoebas, bacteria and even food poisoning from poor kept, prepared or served foods. But, you probably wouldn’t eat in a place that looks that dirty, I would hope. I’ve seen how one place cut the meats, and then the cheese with the same knife, only wiping it off with dirty towel between cutting the meat and cutting the cheese. Also, if the stand you are going to eat at has no running water, it’s not the place to for you to chow-down. If the mayonnaise and condiments are kept at high outdoor temperatures; that’s also a sign that you should move on to a different food stand. Take note, if there is not a restroom at the vendor’s spot, don’t stop to eat there. If the place is busy with lots of people, looks clean, has lots of napkins and the sellers look presentable and have their permits readily visible, then you’ve probably found a safe place to get a quick taco, burrito or quesadilla. Just keep your eyes opened. And, don’t settle for something you don’t really want to eat. Nowadays there are lots of one-stop-quickie-type markets that sell fast food at a very low price. Plus, most of them have all facilities you would likely find in any indoor restaurant. But, again, remember that the Mexican government says, don’t eat in the streets. They seem to know what they are talking about. Buyer, please beware.

The Moral Of The Piñata
Friday, May 15, 2015
Still Working On His Plan “Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended (perfection, godliness or Christ-likeness): but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus,” Philippians 3:13&14. “For by the grace given me I say to every one of you: Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment, in accordance with the faith God has distributed to each of you,” Romans 12:3. These are only two of the many verses that I repeat in my mind anytime I think of myself as something even slightly important or useable or needed in this world…because, I am not. Everything, anything and all that I have or can do or am able to possibly achieve, is only due to God’s great and abundant grace, mercy and undying love for sinners, such as am I. Over the last 30 years of ministry, I have eagerly focused my spiritual activities on preparing myself (and hundreds of others) for the call of God in whatever way He may choose to lead me or use me. During this period of time I have had the blessing of being involved with many godly pastors; hundreds of growing and going missionaries and a multitude of visiting groups all working to help this mission to teach God’s Word. I have been blest, privileged and honored to lead this ministry, which, as anyone can see, is so much bigger than just this one man.
