Looking good at 6 a.m.

We took Keila to the airport early in the morning for her flight to her new site.  Both girls had a traditional Mexican breakfast to start the day.  Here is our last shot from Mexico of the new university student.

A Taste of Mexico

There have been many meals that Tracey’s made to help Keila remember the wonderful local dishes that she grew up with.  On Sunday afternoon, after the service, the families brought unique chicken, beef and “pigs feet" dishes to be placed on tostadas.  It was a wonderful time of talking, eating and “taking it slow.”

Praying for YOU

On Sunday afternoon, the youth came forward in the service to pray for Keila and her trip to the States to study at her university.  There were lots of prayers offered and lots of tears shed.  Hope to see you soon, Keila!

Running with Friends

We had a great youth meeting with lots of youth showing up and playing some old games we used to play.  The added surprise was that one of the men began that day to help me with the youth.  And now there are two of us!  What a great day!

Just for YOU!

Since Keila started her formal education at home, Tracey has been writing about her achievements from very young in a journal.  Tracey handed it over to Keila as a gift, and read some exerpts from it to us.  It was fun remembering “the good old” days.

More Please…

This being Keila’s last week at home in Mexico, Tracey decided to make her favorite foods.  To start the week, she made her Pozole, a party dish, that both girls thoroughly enjoy.  It was so good that I couldn’t help a second helping.

News from Abroad

We were pleased to have a visit from Benjamin Bruneel of the Santa Barbara Community Church in California.  He spoke to us on the importance of God’s Love.  I enjoyed getting a chance to know him and on the following day, translated his Bible study talk to the staff.  May God support his and his church’s efforts in world missions.
