Bates Family General

We had the opportunity to visit Mexico to speak at a family conference a few weeks ago. Carlin and Josie came with us and helped out with the children’s classes. After Bible classes, the girls enjoyed trying to converse with the children, in spite of the language barrier. (Children respond to love no matter what language is used!) The four of us had such a wonderful time meeting new friends, shopping, sightseeing, and enjoying Mexico’s incredible weather! I think I’m gonna have some girls that are anxious to learn Spanish and return to visit children in the orphanages! What special memories we made!
