Kent's Room

Dad, Mom, Vonnie, Steve, Maria and I helped Kent get his room on the 2nd floor of the Boy's Dorm set up.

Long live the Republic of Texas!

Dad donated part of his ministerial library to Kent. It's so special for Kent to have some of his Papaw's books.

Getting the Kids to College

On Tuesday, August 17, we arrived at God's Bible School and College to enroll both of our children. Maria is a College Senior in the Education Program and Kent is a Freshman in the Ministerial Program.

In the parking lot.

Kent by the Welcome Sign.

Kent, Maria and I on campus. I am holding my Skyline Chili cup. We had to take advantage of the opportunity to eat there while we were in the area. :o)

Left to right: My sister, Vonnie, me, Mom (in background) and Dad around the fountain. All of us attended this college, it's a family tradition.

Vonnie and I. So glad she was with me on this emotional day. She had just left her oldest, Heidi, at Ohio Christian University that morning. They live in Alaska, so they are even farther away, than we are in Mexico. :'(

We want to express our deep appreciation to the Parker family for their financial help in acquiring this nice trailer for Mexico Bible Methodist Missions. Thanks to all who gave to offset the costs of transporting the donated van and trailer to the field.

Loading up donated items to deliver to our people in Mexico.

We appreciate the thoughtfulness and generosity of all who have contributed.

With the recent upsurge in violence, crossing the border has become much more difficult. The immigration officials are rejecting all used clothing and shoes. Although it pains us to do so, we are asking that until these restrictions are lifted, all donated items should be new.

Going Away Party

The Saltillo Youth Group had a Going Away Party for Maria and Kent.

We ate yummy burritos at the Correa's house...

the kids played games...

we got to hold Jose and Anna's 1st grandchild...

and they presented Maria and Kent with a banner. (Translation provided by yours truly). ;o)
We are happy that our children have the opportunity to attend Bible College, but it is hard to be so far apart.
