During the past week Glenn was involved in Team Leaders' meetings in Cholula, Mexico and this year, the wives were invited. Several ladies flew in from US, Uruguay and others drove from other parts of Mexico.
There were special outings for the ladies. The first day was a tour of the Talavera Pottery Warehouse. Fascinating.
Watching this guy, reminded me of the verse
"I am the potter, you are the clay".
Everything is hand painted.
After the tour we had an opportunity to paint on a small dish. Super Fun.

The ladies also enjoyed lunch at a local restaurant. The following day, we had a special pot-luck lunch in Cristina's front yard. We had a time of sharing.
All day Friday was Pastoral Care Day. Zach Whaley, from AZ, a personal friend of Jonathan Edwards, shared with us on the topic of
"Essential Counseling Skills".
Basically, Zach teaches us how to ask the right questions, how to listen with our actions, eyes and body language, how important it is to communicate verbally and non-verbally. He demonstrated, and we practiced. It was not roll-play, but we dealt with real life situations that people are dealing with. We are thankful for this very good information that is essential in providing Pastoral Care well.

Sunday afternoon we took a stroll through the Círculo near our hotel in Cholula. I was able to get some great shots of folks and the architecture.
At our closing night, we had a special performance of some local mariachis.
In closing, I'm thankful for the opportunity to accompany Glenn during his week long meetings in Cholula, Mexico. I'm thankful to be a part of a great mission organization, Camino Global, that is involved in spreading the Word of God to and with Spanish speakers all over the world.
