Graffiti

Graffiti on the walls. What do you expect? It’s Mexico. There are gangs around. There are drug cartels in this place. And what would you expect the graffiti to say? Gang names? Bad words? Not CRF, that’s for sure. Yet if you go down the streets of Saltillo, you might find the unexpected. There’s a big graffiti version of CRF on the wall. Where did it come from? Why is it there?

House on Fire

As Bobby Moore was giving a short-term mission group a tour of the Town Square in Saltillo, a tour guide approached him and asked if he could show them around. After guiding them around the huge cathedral in the center of the city, he asked Bobby if they would like to see anything else. Bobby explained that he wanted to be taken to the barrio where the poorer people lived so that they could help them. It wasn’t the usual tourist site, but he obliged them. Upon arriving at the barrio, the group found a house on fire. Bobby and his group quickly assembled a bucket brigade to extinguish the flames.
