- to know God and use our entire lives in service to Him.
- to stand in the gap through prayer, giving and service to viable ministries in Latin America.
- to be transparent helpers of fellow brothers and sisters in Christ, using our resources and skills that through the Holy Spirit, we might encourage and equip those who have less.
- to share a living perspective from Latin America to our churches, friends and family in the states and beyond.

Here's an interesting one.
It took me a while to figure out what this is. I'm not sure I've done it yet actually.
Chocolate. It's Mexican chocolate though - has a cinnamon flavor along with the chocolate. This stuff actually grates really well. I added it into a coffee cake batter I made and a bread recipe.
Alan thinks I bought crystalized sugar and cinnamon with a chocolate dusting, in the shape of a boot heel. Yep. That's exactly what it looks like.
I haven't tried melting it down to use in recipes though. If you have an ideas, feel free to send them my way.
I bought 1/2 kilo for 30 pesos. At the rate we use this stuff it will last me 'till next Christmas when I need cocoa powder for cookies.
