Actually, this was a pretty organized and well-behaved bunch of youth. Meal times were a sight to be seen! A team of ladies and students worked to prepare 3 meals a day for the more than 150 people at the conference.

Hermano Tito shared his expertise and his deep fryer with the school to make fish tacos on Saturday. He has a mesh bag on his head to keep hair out of the food (notice: he has no hair!!!)

Here is the professional tamale-making crew. They could probably have gotten the tamales done without the Americans’ help just as fast, but we certainly had a lot of fun and a great time of fellowship!!!

Enter the amateurs!

Saturday night’s meal was tamales. If you’ve never had an authentic Mexican tamale, you’re missing out on a treat! Chef-Boy-R-Dee just doesn’t do justice to this dish!!! The only drawback to tamales for 150 people is…it’s a lot of work!!! BUT many hands make light work, so all the “grown-ups” pitched in and we gringos learned to wrap and tie tamales. In this photo are Sir, Shane and his wife Angelica (Calvary Chapel Bible students from California), Cheli, Tita, Lina and Victoria (sisters from the church), me (Rebecca) and Carol, a second-year American student from Boca del Rio and CC Sacramento.

Makes me wish I was there as one of the gringos...and to taste the yummy tamales.
