News from Salamanca, MX

Wow! Our time here in Mexico has come and nearly gone!

Today was a very special day here at the Salamanca church. The new pastor was installed this morning. It was a very nice service and quite a few people attended. Below are a few misc. pictures that were taken throughout the day.

(except for this pic...this was taken Sat. afternoon.) This group includes the new pastor and his wife, her mother and two brothers, Philip Burch, the Mason crew, and Daniel - a student/assistant that Pastor Abel is tutoring/mentoring. We had a good time together before a few of them left for home in Southern Mexico.

The new pastor, Abel, and his wife.

Tacos, anyone?

We recently enjoyed tacos & quesadillas at our favorite taco stand in Guanajuato. Michael's favorite is 'tacos al pastor'...pork meat cooked on a spit then shaved off, and then diced pineapple (from on top of the spit), cilantro, and onion are added to small corn tortillas to complete the dish. Served with salsas and guacamole.

A Good Evening

We were privileged to have a church family over this evening for supper. We introduced them to American tacos. There were no pictures taken while we were eating (because we were too busy eating!), but here's a pic of Michael showing Alejandro & Maria Carmen some pictures on our laptop.

Having fun playing...
(this couple also has a boy, but I didn't manage to get a picture of him).
