Monica + Mark's Summer Visit

We had the sweet joy of Monica & Mark coming to visit us for the second time a couple weeks back. It was one of the most enjoyable vacations although I didn't capture as many photos as I would have liked. Of course it was extremely hot, however, we managed to stay cool as we explored La Paz and neighboring sights such as the small town,Todos Santos, and a new favorite beach, Los Cerritos. We definitely ate our fair share of street tacos & homemade ice cream during their trip, they couldn't have been more easier to please. We enjoyed nice long walks, which actually looked forward to most as Monica and I had some incredible & uplifting conversations, taking-in as much wisdom of hers I could. After each conversation, I always felt so uplifted with a much more God-inspired perspective. We were so blessed to spend so much quality time with them all the while being a tour guide and on vacation simultaneously, it really can't get much better than that! We sincerely consider them family and miss you guys so much. This is only a mere peek into our time together, as by the end of each day we wee exhausted in a great way.

 Sam and Mark did some off-roading adventures of course, while us ladies relaxed by the poolside, it's a hard life... 

We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us. If your gift is prophesying, then prophesy in accordance with your faith; if it is serving, then serve; if it is teaching, then teach; if it is to encourage, then give encouragement; if it is giving, then give generously; if it is to lead, do it diligently; if it is to show mercy, do it cheerfully.
Romans 12:6-8

Monica and her family have truly offered their many gifts to us of all means; wisdom, time, encouragement, love,etc. and we could not be more blessed by them. It was truly such a pleasure & blessing to share these memories together, as well as what an impacting & encouraging time to have family come visit. It was so hard to say goodbye, looking forward to the next time we see you and the family again. Blessings to you & so grateful for the impact you have made on our lives.
