Buenas Noches!

Our hearts are so full after a wonderful day of ministry here in Nuevo Laredo. The students had a wonderful nights rest and woke to fresh tortillas, eggs, and potatoes. They are loving eating the authentic Mexican food every day.

Our first ministry site was at a rehabilitation center for juveniles. We are so thankful for the maturity and focus of our team, as we got closer to this site they were praying with their seat partners and preparing their hearts for the ministry. We met the director of the rehabilitation center outside the gates and she told us they only had 11 youth inside and asked if we still wanted to come. Assuring her that we would have wanted to come even if there was only one, we all loaded inside to begin the drama.

Even though our crowd was small, the students gave everything they had. After the drama ended we watched them go out and minister to each of the youth, as well as the security guards and other staff-members. Our hearts rejoiced when we saw three of the men accept Christ. Gloria a Dios!

After this, we headed to the Pulga Plaza de Toros. This site is one Awe Star has been to many times, but thankfully the crowds change every day. There were so many people at our first drama we performed another. Both times we witnessed the power of God move in the lives of the people of Mexico.
Because this weekend is the New Year, many shops and restaurants will be closed. After our third drama the students got the opportunity to do some souvenir shopping and eat at local restaurants.

Once done shopping we headed to our last drama of the day, which ended up being at the same plaza we performed at yesterday! There was somehow an even bigger crowd tonight. One of the best things about our students is their willingness to always engage with the crowd. Their joy, enthusiasm, and love for one another draws many over to watch our drama.

Tonight we had a fantastic meal brought to us by our lovely cooks. After that the students got to listen to Walker teach on Proverbs 31, teaching our men to affirm the women.

Tomorrow we will have another full day of ministry, and will participate in a late night New Years Eve service. Pray for strength for our students and leadership and joy in all circumstances. We are looking forward to the great things God is going to do tomorrow. Thank you for your prayers!

Your Country Coordinators,
Walker & Melanie
