The Noche Mexicana

Dawn and Dave celebrating the Noche Mexicana

Wow! What a wonderful time we enjoyed celebrating the Mexican Independence day, with all our friends here on the border.

We began our fiesta in the afternoon to bring in the Noche Mexicana. Great food and amazing friends equaled an outstanding time. Now I can’t wait till our next party.

Events like this are huge for us in connecting with people and growing deeper in our relationships. Our hope is as we grow closer and deeper it will also open more doors for us down the road.

God works through relationships.

One of the fun things that happens apart from the amazing food is the grito that the president of Mexico gives every year.

The Grito
Feasting with our friends!

Feasting with our friends!

Here is the Grito, which literally means the yell. I list it first in English then in Spanish:

Mexicans! Long live the heroes that gave you the Fatherland! Long live Hidalgo? Long live Morelos! Long live Josefa Ortiz de Dominguez! Long live Allende! Long live Galena and the Bravos! Long live Aldama and Matamoros! Long live National Independence! Long live Mexico! Long live Mexico! Long live Mexico!

¡Mexicanos! ¡Vivan los héroes que nos dieron patria! ¡Viva Hidalgo! ¡Viva Morelos! ¡Viva Josefa Ortiz de Dominguez! ¡Viva Allende! ¡Vivan Aldama y Matamoros! ¡Viva la independencia nacional! ¡Viva México! ¡Viva México! ¡Viva México!

Lord break through in Mexico and with all the Mexicans living on the US side of the border.

In His Grip, Dave
