We had our spring Bible assembly at La Fabrica de San Pedro in Uruapan, Michoacan, Mexico. The factory is a beautiful building with old and new mixed together. The current factory operates in the large basement rooms and the upper rooms are used for conventions, wedding, and parties. The older walls are made of adobe which is mud, grass, manure, and rock. Behind the property runs the Rio Cupatitzio. This river runs through Uruapan.
We took the city bus to and from the assembly. It was the first time I rode the bus in Uruapan. The parking wasn’t good at the San Pedro Fabric Factory so we thought this would be the best transportation. Everyone brings there own lunch to the assembly and we eat at noon break. Our family had peanut butter sandwiches. I think many Spanish friends felt bad for us because they kept bringing us food! “Oh those poor gringos, eating peanut butter and bread for lunch! How terrible!” It was funny but their food was delicious and the gesture was very sweet :-)
Our theme for our Bible assembly was “Keep Seeking the Justice of Jehovah”. We had talks in Spanish and Spanish Sign-Language. The kids were behaved and we had a good family day. Tristan refused to nap till the program was over, of course. We made it home safe and sound after another new experience in Mexico. Signing off, Tina
