Buenas Dias!

The students awoke this morning rested and re-energized, excited to begin our day of drama training. Although the drama is only an eighteen minute presentation, it takes all day to learn. Thankfully the students quick learners and picked up their parts with enthusiasm. The drama goes from the creation of the world through the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Each of the parts in the drama represents an aspect of the gospel.

The leaders were very impressed with how quickly the students finished the drama. After having a delicious lunch of Awe Star traditional peanut-butter and jelly sandwiches, the students finished learning every scene in the drama. We decided to reward them by allowing them to walk to the store to buy a snack. The students were so intrigued by all the Mexican items the store had, as well as watching their money convert from dollars to Pesos.

One interesting aspect of this team is a number of youth from Mexico are joining us to perform the drama. We are so excited to be able to share in ministry with the nationals of this country. One student came all the way from Monterrey to join our team. We are very blessed by their presence.

The students finished up their training and got to enjoy a delicious dinner of spaghetti and meatballs. Afterwards they got to sit and listen to the testimony of a local pastor named Cuberto. Pastor Cuberto shared his story of all the sacrifices he and his family have made so that the gospel might be spread here in Nuevo Laredo. The students hearts were moved and encouraged by his testimony.

Tomorrow we will be heading out first thing in the morning to begin ministry. Continue to pray for the health and safety of the students. We pray that we will see many divine encounters both tomorrow and for the rest of our week here in Mexico.

Your Country Coordinators,

Walker and Melanie
