|writing a list of baby items from A-Z|
This coming Monday we have another baby shower for the daughter of the couple who live in front. This baby will be her second. Again, we expect a group of ladies from the church, as well as some from the neighborhood.

Leaving the retreat center on Sunday afternoon, I felt I was re-entering Mexico after a brief time away.
We're coming up on Easter and are planning how to teach the events of Holy week and Easter Sunday. As soon as Lent began, different families started hosting the 30 altars representing different manifestations of Christ (Lord of Pardon, Lord of Comfort, etc.). People visit the altars and participate in the masses there. The host families provide food, flowers, and much more, spending around $20,000 pesos during the time the altar is at their house. Our prayer is that we can show that Holy Week is not about out-spending the neighbors but that Jesus' suffering, death, and resurrection are the reason we live.
