We met Matt in Mexico this summer (he was one of the summer workers), and we stayed with him and his family for a few days. They were so welcoming and hospitable to us. (Check out their front yard!)
This is the church his grandpa pastors...The Cowboy Chapel of Prayer.
Matt and his sister Julia gave a tour of the surrounding area.
They even guided us to some wild mustangs!
