today is our travel day. we leave here around noon and arrive in the “land of plenty” at 7:30 ish (immigration takes time). thank you to everyone who has helped make this trip possible and is helping us with so many things, a vehicle, bed to sleep in, event planning etc. many blessing to you all. unless you are ever in our shoes you can’t imagine what a difference this makes. see you soon ❤
1 Since you have been raised to new life with Christ, set your sights on the realities of heaven, where Christ sits in the place of honor at God’s right hand. 2 Think about the things of heaven, not the things of earth. 3 For you died to this life, and your real life is hidden with Christ in God. 4 And when Christ, who is your life, is revealed to the whole world, you will share in all His glory.
Colossians 3:1-4 | NLT
okay – packing is a happy word and a stressful word…soon and very soon we will be visiting the states. I am looking forward to a cool nights sleep and Ronnie is looking forward to good food =) – see you all soon
Some of you know I prayer journal and write scripture … Well today this was my scripture.
How I love that we can’t be too young or too old, too broken or bruised, too tired or tattered for God to work in us! His mercies are new every morning.
I love FaceTime. we chatted with Bradley and Karly while Bradley was cooking dinner tonight. tofu something pai it looked scrumptious (of course minus the peanuts and tofu). he is a really good cook though. it was nice seeing the grand dogs and chatting with Karly. we miss them.
I am trying to get 4 weeks of lesson plans together and organized for when I am in the states and Ronnie is trying to finish up his projects along with trying to be at home for the things that need to be fixed at the rental. someone has to be home while they are here. it was a good day at school. we have “lost” 3 teenagers (one was bored, one had too much homework and one the mom didn’t know he wasn’t coming). oh teenagers are a whole different breed of people. I wish I had free Spanish when I was a teenager!!! we are pretty sure one of the boys came to school smelling like alcohol. when we asked him he of course denied anything, we asked to smell his breathe and it didn’t smell like alcohol but HE did. I don’t know, I am not really an expert in these kind of things. I will have to talk to him again tomorrow.
Well I am super tired so off to bed I go…ya hablamos (talk to you later)
