|so we went to a lighthouse. so pretty!|
this past week we celebrated the independencia de mexico y todo latino america. it was SOOOOOOOO sweet! if you can get onto youtube you can watch "el grito" in mexico city. sooo sweet! they do this incredible fireworks show that puts the stadium of fire to SHAME, and the presidente does "el grito" in the middle of the town square... oh my goodness. we watched it in devotional the other day and it gave me the hibbee gibees. so sick. so, to celebrate, we had a fiesta! the rama had a REALLY good party--like it was organized and people came AND brought their friends! it was cool! the last party we had there was rice and fruit (that we brought).. but this one was sooo awesome. and way fun to convivir and get to know everyone better.

things are wonderful. i feel so happy and content to be part of the Lords work. i know it's his. we are planting seeds all around the world. i took a choice english couple through the tour last night. they've seen missionaries in liverpool but they wouldn't talk to them, no way no how. but they'll stop and talk to me for an hour and a half because i'm totally nonthreatening, hilarious and in a pioneer dress. mercy! so good. i love it. they totally referred. and, as they left, they said when they see the missionaries next, "we'll have plenty to talk about..." haha. i love it. and this whole tour in chinese thing... come on. the Lord is in charge here. the work is rolling forth and every kindred nation and tongue will confess that Jesus is the Christ. and THIS is His church!
all's well. love you dearly.
ps. joan and sue. got your note from elder brown! yep! totally made my day! love you twooooooooooooo!
