Pastor's wife Anna (Oaxaca City) and their 2 darling boys
An evening trip was taken up to our Bible Methodist Church in Jayacatlan to visit Pastor Alejandro and his new bride, Chele. Marc was happy to present them their gifts from the Auburn OH Bible Methodist Church (part of their Christmas Project). As you can see from their faces, they were happy to receive them. Thanks again, Auburn!

I was a little concerned about their night trip back down the mountain to Oaxaca City, but all went well. They spent the night there in Oaxaca City and sometime during this day (I believe) were joined by our pastor in Cuchicuato, Pastor Refugio (Cuco).
Day 2 - Tuesday. The travelers were up early and boarding a bus heading south across the mountains to the village of San Gabriel. The bus ride is a story in itself, I hear; Marc's had "various and sundry" experiences on this particular ride on his different trips to Oaxaca. But they arrived safely and were met by Pastor Desiderio Lopez and his wife and hosted by them during their stay here in this village.
Pastor Dolores preached a great message that Tuesday evening in San Gabriel. Here's the altar scene at the end of the service.
