A calf is a puma is Jesus

Yesterday it was reported to the loyal and fervent blog readers how a thunderstorm hit with tremendous force Ciudad Constitucion in Baja California, Mexico and the Fuso Szulc most particularly.
Now, innocent readers may sometimes wonder how deep is the truth of the events reported on this blog.
It is all very well to write about sophisticated ladies sitting luxuriously next to the swimming pool exhibiting their femininity and thunderstorms battering the Fuso Szulc making the inhabitant sit with the fire extinguisher in the hands.
Both events are rather equal in force and impact, as understanding readers will admit.
But isn’t there a small part of spicing up involved?

This morning the result of the thunderstorm was seen at “El Campestre”: the oasis with its large swimming pool so favoured.
Several trees had been knocked down and the pool was full of branches, leaves and sand.
One house, about 100 metres (300 feet) away from the Fuso Szulc, had a large 30-year-old tree blown on its roof.
Karen, the pretty and charming daughter of the owner of “El Campestre”, her mother, explained that the family living in the house was expecting the tree to be blown over.
They had found refuge before the storm hit in a safer house.

Meanwhile, Miguel del Barco is still very much in the heart.
The Jesuit priest from Spain who came to Baja California, Mexico, to build a church, continues to be of great inspiration.
The project together with web-wizard/designer Peter Bouwmeester to re-design and re-write the current personal website, postponed for weeks due to the abyss pushed into by the Paris book publisher, has regained momentum thanks to Miguel del Barco.
And options are now opening to go forwards with the different projects in the portfolio.

Would the fervent and loyal blog reader like to be informed about the meeting at the rancho Aqua Escondida two days ago?
It was during this exciting journey from San Javier to Santo Domingo.
Following the torturing dirt road along the San Javier river.

It was before to cross the San Javier river.
Next to the rancho Aqua Escondida it is deep and dangerous.
A man and a dog were sitting there.
The Fuso Szulc was stopped and a chat made and fruit shared.

Some time later a nice 4x4 pick-up truck arrived with a couple in their mid-40’s.
They also stopped and joined the cosy meeting.
The man from the pick-up truck called: “LOOK, a puma !!!!”
And pointed to the other side of the wide river.
Where a white calf was demonstrating desperation for fear to cross the deep waters.
It was not a good joke and nobody actually laughed.

The couple was rather different from most people that are met in remote areas of Mexico.
The man claimed he had a rancho not too far away.
But he was dressed in very nice clothes, his car was much better than most and he spoke more or less English.
But it was the attitude that was the most remarkable.
Almost arrogant.
Exhibiting superiority and upper dog mentality.
In fact rather unsympathetic people.

The explanation for their way of being became fully clear.
Just before they took off to continue their journey they gave leaflets.
Explaining how to get a new heart by delivering oneself to Jesus.

And how to find a secure refuge by coming to Christ.

The leaflets were made in the USA coming from among others a couple, Karl and Leona Williams in Downey, California.
They have a company called Foursquare Missions Press.

What is convincing are not leaflets.
But how somebody is.
Calling a calf a puma.
