Our group met up at MSP International Airport on a very rainy Saturday morning at 5:30 am. Us girls stopped to get some coffee to wake us up...the guys...well, they carried our luggage to our gate. ;)
Preparing for takeoff...

I think Texas must have the most state pride of any state in the Union...with all the Lone Stars everywhere, you couldn't ever forget you were in Texas.
And of course, a place to hang your cowboy hat.=)
This is the room the girls stayed in all week. Normally, we would have stayed in a dorm-style room, but since there was only three of us, they gave us this cute little room. It even had a mini refrigerator.
I know that Montana is "Big Sky Country", but I think that Texas has some pretty big skies too!
Saturday night after dinner, we went up to a mountain that overlooks El Paso and Juarez...can you tell it was windy?
It was a beautiful view. While we were up there, Mr. Jarvis talked about what we would be doing in the week ahead and we prayed for the people that we would come in contact with.
Self portrait time! =)
Dan was starting to get a little frustrated with my self portrait efforts (there are about four more with his head cut off...). He suggested we just ask someone else to take the picture for us...
...so we did. Me and my bro on a missions trip with BPS...something we've talked about for years! When I asked Hector to take the picture and handed him the camera, his reaction was pretty funny..."Is this thing a microwave too?" =D

So many lights...but so much darkness...so many people that need Christ
