We spent about ten days in Mexico at the beginning of the month. We enjoyed singing at about ten different venues, fellowshipping with many families in their homes, and eating a variety of yummy food! We are thankful for all of you who were praying for us during the tour! We saw souls come to Christ and were able to encourage those who were already Christians.
Here's a recap of the trip!
We started out the trip with a flat tire! With road life, there are plenty of opportunities to learn flexibility!
The sunsets and sunrises were spectacular!
We sang at a variety of places, including a rehab center, a community center, gymns, and churches.
Fellowship with friends!
The papaya and avocado are plentiful and delicious!
After concert conversations!
Surprisingly enough, our concerts are in German Mennonite communities rather than in Spanish towns or villages! They truly have their own language and culture. It has been a privilege to share with them each winter for a few weeks for the past 6 years.
Oh, the beauty of Mexican skies!
On an off day, the children got to swim with some friends from one of the areas that we sang in.
Lunch date at a Mexican restaurant.
Concert at a community center.
We were especially blessed by the many times that we were invited to fellowship with families in their homes! Concerts were and are a great ministry, but getting to connect on a personal level is a great privilege.
One day, we enjoyed eating some very authentic Mexican food. This yummy dish, called "sandals" in English, was made with fresh handmade blue corn tortillas loaded with black beans, grilled rib eye steak, delicious Mexican cheese, red onions, & avocado slices and then topped with green tomatillo sauce, cream, and a red tomato sauce to represent the Mexican flag.
Mexico doesn't get snow very often, but it snowed while we were there!
A wonderful evening with friends began around the grill as they cooked steaks, ribs, and onions.
"Then sings my soul, my Savior God to Thee,
How great Thou art,
How great Thou art!"
