Our Fun Monday of Sightseeing and Shopping

This team worked incredibly hard! We crammed so many projects into the 7 days they were here and the Lord helped us get so much accomplished. On Monday we decided to go market shopping, eat tacos, and see the sights in Saltillo.

All of us on the Plaza in front of the Cathedral

Inside the Governor's Mansion downtown

I love this architecture and color of this downtown building

After we finished downtown, we drove up the mountain to see all of Saltillo in the valley below. Beautiful!
After Marc, Brennan and I taught English class, we all went to the home of Jose and Ana Correa for awesome burritos. We had so much fun!

As we were leaving late Monday night to all go our separate ways and leave very early Tuesday morning, the Team surprised me by a great thank you gift - beautiful roses and lilies, a set of candles and a very meaningful card that the Team all signed. Thank you so much to all of you! I had a wonderful time hostessing you all - you were so easy to "take care of"! Come back soon!

A little better shot of the flowers.

We're so thankful to God for this Team and each individual who sacrificed their time and money to come and be a blessing to our family and Bible Methodist Missions in Mexico. May God reward each of you - we love you!
