Talking with a new convert while warming ourselves by the fire.

It's a tradition to have firecrackers on many holidays. The noise level is incredible! :o)

Santa Apolonia

On a recent Sunday we were able to visit Pastor Chito in the town of Santa Apolonia in northeastern Mexico.

These are some of the children that came for Sunday School. It was held in the church van since there are no Sunday School rooms in this little chapel.

They dressed their balloons in the Armor of God. It was a very nice project which the pastor's wife learned in our last Institute session taught by Helen Reiff.

A beautiful, young mother who attended the service. She listened very attentively as Steve preached.

Steve took a group picture after church.
