Our border trip and visit to our church in Soledad

This is the RGBI guest house where we stay when we go out for border trips. They give an awesome price to language school alumni and since we spent 15 months total living here on the campus, it feels like home to us. My kids are normally running for the basketball courts or their friends' houses before the wheels stop turning.

During our time on the border we enjoyed visiting with fellow missionaries, Michael and Crystal Mason and their two boys. Thank you for taking time out of your language school schedule to spend time with us - we enjoyed it.

Also we met with 'very' extended family (brother in law's brother and family) - Scott and Dawn Weaver and their 2 girls - MKs and former missionaries to Honduras, Belize and Mexico. Thank you, Weavers, for the delicious meal and for fitting us in at the end of your very busy work trip to Mexico. Thank you also for your love and your faithful support of our ministry.


We enjoyed visiting with Pastor Homero his wife Esther and the wonderful people at our Bible Methodist church in Soledad on Sunday morning. Here's a few pictures to show you:

One of Logan's favorite things about his birthday was getting to see his Mexican friend, Irving.


Our Bible Institute President Eli and Isela Balderas (Pastor Luna's daughter) joined us for lunch at the Luna home. The food was just scrumptious as always. And true to Mexican culture, the men and boys ate first....we ladies served them and then sat in the living room and waited until they were finished eating before we began. Of course my "men and boys" love this custom!



Thank you to those who prayed for Sister Esther and sent her cards during her recent gall bladder surgery and recuperation time. She is still not doing well physically and has several other problems that may or may not be related to surgery complications. She was not feeling well at all yesterday and Pastor Luna said he would be taking her back to the doctor this week. She also suffers from high blood pressure. I told her that we would be praying for her...would you join me in remembering Sis Esther Luna, pastor's wife at Soledad? Thank you!

The guest house and palm trees brought back fond memories of my trip to visit you - one year ago this very week! Time flies!

Couldn't you just carry a plate into the living room to eat? That would be a hard custom to follow! Smelling that good mexican food...
