Orientation Week

We had an amazing week of intern orientation this past week. We had our interns from the US alongside some of our Mexican interns living and working together in their preparation for this summer’s work. The ranch will have a total of 11 interns this summer: 4 from the US, 5 from Mexico, and 2 missionary kids. We had a full schedule and here are some of the highlight pictures…
