It has been awhile since I´ve posted. For some time I was working on editing a copy of The Christmas Carol in Spanish so that the kids in Huejotzingo could do a readers´ theater presentation of it on Dec. 21. It will be a challenge to get the readers´ theater together since many of the children do not attend school and therefore don´t read very well. Today Abraham and I took the 1 1/2 hour bus ride out to Huejotzingo to begin rehearsals. Until the performance, we´ll continue going on Saturdays in addition to our normal Sunday afternoon visits.
Please join us in prayer. We believe God is calling us to work full time in Huejotzingo in the near future and are considering buying property there. At present a smallish lot with nothing on it costs anywhere from $6,000 to $8,000 USD to buy. That is a very good price, but we simply don´t have the money for it. However, if God would have us move there and own our property, he will provide.
I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Abraham and I joined the Puebla Christian School staff for a potluck feast a week before the actual Thanksgiving day, but we also invited my mother and brother-in-law to celebrate at our house the date of Thanksgiving. It was their first time eating a Thanksgiving meal, since Mexico does not celebrate this holiday (Abraham had to go to school that day, and Ken skipped his to join us). We enjoyed the traditional foods, although the "turkey" was actually chicken, and Ken bought tortillas to complete the meal. When we had finished eating the main meal, we were too full for apple pie just yet, so Abraham and I went to rent a movie. After the movie, it was too late for Ken, Six, and Chava to go home, so we set up makeshift beds, and they stayed the night.
There are so many things I thank God for during this season. My wonderful husband, my families, work that I enjoy, provision for all our needs, faithful supporters, health, a beautiful home, the children in Huejotzingo, and the list goes on... What are you thankful for?
