The women working in the ‘kitchen'
For the meals at the conference, they all eat standing up.
They would not allow me to eat standing up, but insisted I sit a table … and gave me the best they had.
The corn soaking, ready to be ground into pulp, and used to make the tamales for the next meal.
Each morning a bull was killed to provide food for the 2,200 to 2,500 folks that were there … and nothing gets wasted I assure you!!!
This is Gerson, Fernando’s second oldest son.
This was my breakfast one morning … from the eggs collected from their hens.
The brethren getting the bull ready to be killed …

This is Fernando … one of the four local elders of the local church in Salto de Agua. Next to him is Pedro, who also accompanied me 6 years ago when I went around Guatemala and other parts of Chiapas.
This is Fernando’s third son — Juanito.
