|preparing the dessert|
This time we asked various people from the church to prepare and take specific special dishes for the parents´ meal rather than preparing the food at the church. Providing the dinner that way made the kitchen work much simpler, although we still needed the help of a number of volunteers to finish preparing and serving the food.

Once the time of games and pampering ended, the kitchen crew entered into high gear to serve dinner. There was vegetable soup, salad, hand-made tortillas, and meat in sauce, followed by dessert of banana dolphins with strawberry roses and ice cream. To drink, the parents had sprite with craisins floating in the bubbles.
A friend from Puebla Christian School brought her team from T2T International to do a puppet play specifically for single parents. Since several of the parents attending are not part of the church, we wanted to be sure to present the Gospel at the event. When the T2T team finished their play, the event ended for the parents. Church volunteers worked quickly with us to clean up, and we caught our bus home.
Next single parents´ event? Perhaps in another two years. Abraham and I are expecting our second baby end of October or beginning of November, so we may need to wait again for awhile.
