Living in Chontal

I've lived in Chontal for various durations, mostly as a short-term visitor between 2010 and 2014, but since then as a part-time "resident". Coming as a stranger with a message of "family" to a mostly isolated, poor, rural place on the other side of the world is a huge challenge in human trust-building! Accompanying the people of Chontal and sharing in the their life has been a joy for me, and has developed me into not a benefactor from beyond, but a family-member, a friend, a missionary who brings good news in relationship.
