The Martin children were shocked when the door burst open and their brother Wayne strode in, his face grim. “Five of my piglets completely disappeared overnight!”
The next morning three more were missing. Had the piglets been carried off by the coyotes the boys had heard howling in the night? Or was it the thief Juan?
The mystery of the missing piglets was only one of this family’s adventures. But besides the excitement and uncertainties of life south of the border, the Martin family was absorbing valuable lessons. Whether they were patting tortillas or making cheese, hunting coyotes or observing owls, Dad and Mom guided the family in applying Scripture to each situation, helping their family deal with challenges that are common to families everywhere.
