Arriving in Monterrey, Mexico was a sweet surprise. The population is around 5 million and except for the Spanish signs everywhere, it looks like a large city in the states. The city is so beautiful. It looks like it could be a large city in the desert with mountains surrounding it. The scenery is as beautiful as the people that live here. I was greeted by Carol Oban, a missionary that is a member of my church and stayed with her the first night. The next two nights I'm staying with a local family. They have three daughters that laugh all the time so I fit in perfectly! This trip is allowing me to visit with MTW and see all the church planting programs. I am working with one of the church planters and his wife on a Heal Ministries future team trip that will focus on women's ministry and one of the orphanages that they support, Casa Hogar.
