People in Mexico

This family attends our church in Soledad, which is in Northern Mexico. This man is selling baskets in the beautiful town on San Miguel de Allende in Central Mexico. I would like to have one of each!

This lady attends our church in the village of Cuchicuato. I think she has a rugged beauty. The scarf sets off her high cheekbones.

These are teens at a Youth Retreat in Saltillo. Kent is in the middle of the back row. Maria is on the far right of the 2nd row.

These men are sitting around the plaza in the center of Saltillo. 30 years ago they could have been "The Marlboro Man."

Rio Bravo

Before a system for irrigation was made, the Rio Grande flooded often, the Mexicans nicknamed the river, "Rio Bravo." That's the name of this town where our other border church is. The little girl is Pastor Santiago's daughter. Is she not the cutest?!

La Florida

Bible Methodist Missions has 3 churches within an hour of the US border. We are living in Texas while Steve goes to language school and we attend these churches. Here are a few pics of our church in La Florida. The pic of our vehicle "climbing" up a dirt path, is the road from the church to get back onto the "main" road. The path is every bit as steep as it looks, and is equally as treacherous, going down as it is going up.
