North and Central America Summit 2015

DSCN4960

In September we loaded into a big tour bus with the Schumanns and our 4 other Mexican missionary families, and headed 12 hours south to Mexico City. We met up with the Baileys (who are serving in Costa Rica) for our 1st annual FMC North and Central America Summit.  Sarah and Kevin Granger and their family flew down from Louisiana to lead us all in a four day retreat together to be refreshed, united and recommitted to the charisms of FMC. We were so blessed to stay at a retreat center for priest and religious missionaries that was located just a block from the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe.  The Sisters who live there were amazing and were so generous in serving us.  It was such a gift to have this time set apart to be reminded of who we are as FMC missionaries and to recommit in areas that we may not be fully living into. My mom came down to visit and help with the kids which was also a huge blessing.  Here are some pictures of our Summit Adventures!
