Buenos Dia Amigos!

Mexico -- the sights, sounds, and smells. What an experience we had today as we crossed the border for a few hours of living in another culture! Working with the language barrier was a first for many of us, and gave us a new appreciation for foreign missionaries. Here are a few pictures of our day:

We stopped to watch some workers harvesting in the fields -- and they surprised us with a couple fresh cabbages!

Standing on the Rio Grand River bridge at the American/Mexican line.

Trying out a new Spanish style.

"Righteous are You, O Lord, And upright are Your judgements.
Your testimonies, which You have commanded, are righteous and very faithful,"
Psalm 119:137-138

Hey, You wouldn't believe all the cabbage we have been getting here in Bibleville. Yesterday some of the men went to glean a field and brought back a pickup load of cabbage. Ruth, that would make lots of stir-fry!!!!!Yum, yum.
