Last week Jenna joined approximately 55 members of the church youth group, chaperons and youth ministers on their annual mission trip to Mexico. They assisted in the construction of a school and a church in Piedras Negras. All week they worked long, hard days in the heat but they were rewarded at the end of the week on their way home by getting to stay in a plush hotel with time off to enjoy the River Walk in San Antonio, Texas. I'm so thankful they got home safely. On the way back to Oklahoma, the tread separated from the tire of the vehicle that Jenna was riding in. This is especially scary because four years ago a similar tire failure caused one of our church vans to have a horrible roll-over accident that caused serious injuries to several of our teenagers. Luckily for us, the vans were immediately replaced with safer vehicles (Sprinters) and another potential tragedy was prevented. I'm so happy to say everyone returned safe and sound, but extremely tired. Some more pictures:

They clean up really well:
