Rainy cold day today...we had quite a few weeks of sunshine so we are glad for the rain for the gardens even if it makes outdoor living rather uncomfortable:)
Robert is back in with our boys so we are happy about that:) His sparkling laughing dark eyes are so beautiful and its a joy to have him to love on again:)
Today Asher and I had the day out and we bought him a much needed jacket and a pair of boots(thanks to the friends who sent money to make that happen). On Sunday we are going to one of the missions which is in a town called Africa..about a 4 hour we will leave early and be back late..I am not too excited about all the bumpy roads but I am looking forward to meeting these people.
Elizabeth ?(forget her last name) from Missouri arrived on Wednesday...27 years old, parents were missionaries in Mexico when she was born till 3 then in Bolivia till she was 9, and so when she got to US she wanted to be American and did not keep up her Spanish, took some German in high school and some she can communicate some but is hoping even more will come back to her in her time spent here this month. She is very pleasant and we look forward to learning to knowing her better. She is over 6 ft tall so she seems very tall compared to all the short people around here.
Girls were disappointed this morning to find out that the outing to Mexico City was cancelled...a group of christians were going to the dump at the city to give out food to the poor and hungry....Elizabeth, Sed and Evelyn and Edith were going to go with them. Its been postponed till December so they may still have the opportunity to do that.
Children's church is again happening on Saturdays...after the mudslide and because of Nicoles trip we cancelled it for awhile...but we have the pavillion cleaned out again and so once again there is room for such things to happen. Last week there were about 20-25 people who was rainy so that hindered the numbers some, I'm sure. Manuel came that day and said he wanted to come back. So that is good altho it definitely makes more drama for Asher to deal with. He had a few bad moments but for the most part he is doing well. Lencho is definitely glad for some help with splitting wood for cooking over the fire in the kitchen and then for fire in the boiler to heat water for showers. It takes a good bit of wood for all that which was too big a job for 1 ten year old boy...Michael helps a little but there isnt too much power behind that strike with the axe or machete as of yet:)
The Joy of the Lord is our strength...that was on the banner that Marlene made for us and sent to looks so beautiful on our wall and is a wonderful reminder daily :) Thanks again Marlene and household!!
