Going Away… Missing home
Well, I have been here a month, and although I am totally enjoying it here… I get a little homesick. Mostly on Sundays. I miss my church family, my family, my fiancé, etc. And I don’t feel it for long periods, just in spurts. I am so thankful to have access to today’s communication tools… FaceTime is awesome! I can’t imagine doing this before the computer age…and I have abundant respect for those who served when they had no contact with the families they left behind. I don’t think I would have been able to do it.
So…yes, I miss home, but just as affirmative is my love for Mexico. Of course, there are things I have to adjust to… but I enjoy a challenge and change. In light of that, here are a few images of my new home…in progress. It is comfortable (for me anyway… I like warm weather, so it is awesome. I know some of you would probably be a bit too hot without A/C). I have more comforts than I really need, but it is simple and easy to take care of. So, I show you the photos below so you can use your mind’s eye to imagine what I am up to when I am “home”.
The Church in Jesús María
Sunday (March 23) was the first Sunday for the Jesús María congregation to meet in their new location. It was an exciting and emotional day! Please take a look at this article to see how God is working here. It is an exciting time to be a part of His work in this area. Thank you for partnering with me to serve here!
I will be spending most of April in Puebla Mexico at the Spanish Institute to aid in my language learning. It is a three week immersion course, and I will also be living with a Spanish speaking Mexican family while I am there. Please pray for my brain to be sharp and ready to receive a concentrated dose of instruction in Spanish! I know you CAN teach an old dog new tricks, but it is not as easy! Pray Pray Please!
