Between Two Hills and a Cliff

Renee and I decided one day recently that we wanted to go out driving looking at new areas for ministry.  There are so many small villages tucked away and hidden in the hills and sugar cane fields that you cannot see from any main roads.  Because they are hard to get to and hard to see they often get overlooked by ministries serving in the area and we really want to make sure they are getting their spiritual and physical needs met.

On this day we decided to drive through an area known as La Union and see what might be behind that large area of apartment complexes.  As we were driving I noticed a small dirt road and said to Renee, “Let’s see what’s down there.”  What we found was a hidden little area of houses with some of the most beautiful views I have seen.  The road got progressively worse as we went up and down a few hills.  The last hill we went down was pretty steep with a cliff on the driver’s side and a big hill shooting straight up on the passenger’s side.  As we came around a turn I was facing a hill that was steeper than the one I had just come down.  I tried to make it up the hill but as I got a little over half way up my tires would start spinning and I couldn’t make it.  I did not have enough room to turn around, so I tried backing up the hill I had come down but I kept sliding into the big ruts in the road and my tires would start spinning.  We were stuck!
