Adventures in Missions!
Hey everyone! I hope your Thanksgiving was a great one. Mine
was a good one but different with it being my 1st Thanksgiving away from
my family. I was able to spend the day with my team, my coordinator and
his family plus some friends; it was a good day.
Hard to believe it is December and I have been in Mexico City for 6 months.
Lord willing, on the 15th I will be heading back to Richmond for the Holidays
and I am very excited to see some of you and I hope to get to spend time
with you. With it being the holidays I would like to give something back
to you, so I would like to invite you to a cultural lunch at Sylvan Nook
Church of Christ at Noon on December 20th. It is going to be a good time
full of good food and a presentation of everything that has happened here
in my first 6th months and what is to come for the 2nd half. I would truly
love to see you there.
Well this month has been another one full one of people coming to visit.
In the beginning of the month we had some friends who are in AIM in Leon
Mexico come over and visit for the weekend and we had a good time with
them. Then after they left I got a visit from my Grandpa. He came down
and I got to show him around the city and some of my favorite places here.
We went to the pyramids and we climbed both of the pyramids that were
open to climb. It was a great visit.
This month has also been a month of transitions. The rest of the 2007
AIMers that were here except for one have left and the last one is leaving
in December. It has been a time of a lot of sad goodbyes for them, trips
to the bus station, one to the Airport, and a karaoke party after Church
one Sunday to celebrate their time here and a little way to thank them.
With them leaving they still had some LST readers who wanted to continue
to study so I have 2 new students. Im thankful for the new open
doors for me to share Gods word. Please pray for me and my students
thank for your prayers. I also ask you to pray for the 2007 AIMers
who are just getting home and making the transition from being on the
field and living in a foreign country to going back to the states
this can be a difficult transition.
This month is going to be a fun one; here for the two weeks then I am
going to be home. Some of the missionaries are leaving for Christmas as
well so the Christmas parties here are a little bit earlier. We are also
going to have a Christmas party with the youth group here on the Saturday
before the team and I head back to the states. Also I will be getting
more ministries lined up so that way when I come back from Indiana I can
hit the ground running.
Thank you for everything and cant wait to see you!
