May you praise the Lord with us for the great things He has done and continues to do as we serve Him sharing the gospel here in the little town of Cuidad Insurgentes, BCS Mexico.

Someone turns 5 months old this week...
How I still thank the Lord each day for this little guy!
I told Daniel tonight that I think I need to schedule in a time to answer questions about our schedule :) Really, I am looking forward to sharing with you all and answering/addressing the things you have asked. Look for a post (or two or three) on that this week.
We were suppose to go to La Paz tomorrow to work on renewing my visa, but we've had a slight change of plans...ALL of our washing machines broke this past week. We've had problems with them all off and on for months, but 2 aren't doing anything and one is torn apart on the back patio as it was flooding the laundry room each time I ran it. Daniel is hoping (and I'm praying!!) that he'll be able to get the part to fix the one tomorrow. But since it's been a few days since I've been able to wash for the 14 (oh and Uncle Samuel...15) people who live here, we need to do something. So I told the children tomorrow we get to wash by feet...fill the back yard water tank with water, throw in the clothes, add some soap and MARCH! STOMP! JUMP! RUN! WALK! Anything to get those clothes clean :) I think I've convinced them that it's going to be really fun!
Well, Daniel just got home and it's late. I'll close with a few pictures from the weekend...
Elijah helping Josiah with his worksheets.
You know when it rains it pours...2 flat tires on the truck, van broken down, and lego flushed down the toilet. It took Daniel and Samuel 2 hours or more to get it out...it was SO hot in the bathroom that Samuel turned the shower on himself while they were working :)
Buying fruit from a man who drove by our house. Pardon Nehemiah's outfit...he's potty training right now...thus the fascination with the toilet and the flushed lego.
Saturday afternoons, the children and I get home from the church around 5 pm and we always prepare lunch for Sunday. Many hands make light work...and I treasure the time we spend together working, talking, and laughing.
I never tire of the children showing me something they've made...I love their creativity!
