I know, I know it's been forever since we've posted something! But we were on a mission trip to Mexico for a week. So now I will share some pictures and stories from the incredible trip. We went to Monterrey, Mexico, a city surrounded by mountains. We drove there from Kerrville, Texas with a youth team from Westwood ministries.
We got to do many different forms of ministry while we were there. We painted the inside of a church and played with the kids there at the church. We lead the worship service that Sunday at the church; Joshua and I lead the music in Spanish and Mark gave a message. We had a fellowship with some of the ministers' kids of that church. We got to buy food and toiletries and distribute them to families living in the city dump.
(Here is the truck full of bags to distribute)
Then we got to visit an orphanage and play with the kids.
Here is Kelsie playing with some of the kids at the orphanage after we painted their faces.
It was an amazing trip and we are so thankful to have been able to be a part of what God is doing in Monterrey. Please pray for these kids and the families we worked with, that the seeds that were planted will take root and grow. Pray that Monterrey will become a city of the Lord.

Sammy and I wanted to take this opportunity to wish everyone a happy 4th of July. We had a great day celebrating and getting to spend the day with Joshua. Usually he is at work, but yesterday we got to have him home again.
We went over to a coworker's house to grill with him and his wife and new baby boy. Sammy came and entertained everyone in the backyard. He played soccer, fetch-the-tennis-ball, and his version of frisbee, which is where he waits until the frisbee hits the ground, grabs it, and runs off to chew it.
Then we watched a movie with one of our friends from A&M and watched fireworks. But I'll write more about that when I post a pic from the adventure.
Hope you have a great 5th of July, too! =)

This past weekend Joshua's parents came in town and took us to a baseball game. The Rangers were playing the Astros. What rivalry! =) It was our first time to go to the ballpark since we've been here and my first time ever here in Arlington. We had a lot of fun!
Being from Houston, I was rooting for the 'Stros, but they lost. Unfortunately they has several bad plays in the field. Just not their night. Ah, well.
