Summer

It is a bright, beautiful Saturday morning, and Kevin and I are in the LAM office getting some work, and some long-needed catch up done! Mexico City has really been quite beautiful the past couple of weeks, the smog has been at a minimum and the weather has been beautiful. J We are in the process of changing gears. Mid-May we had our final homework club session and said good-bye to our World Vision group, because for the summer we will be part of a team that facilitates 14 young people who are coming to the city on a short-term mission trip. These fourteen students, mostly college age and a little older, will be here for two months, and will be experiencing a condensed version of what we have been doing this past year. In pairs the students will be living with Mexican families, taking Spanish lessons, and working with local churches and other outreaches, such as World Vision, and a home for street boys. We are excited for everyone to come, they arrive on Wednesday! Kevin and I are still involved in our church, and I will be trying to keep up with my women’s group. Some of the things we will be doing this summer will be acting as a mentor for the summer students, helping with Spanish classes, in the office and acting as resources for the students in their ministries. The students will be here until August first. At this point Kevin and I are planning to return to the States mid-August so that Kevin can finish his Masters degree. Please be praying for us as we prepare for this summer and for all the transitions an decisions we are making.

It is nice to see a post from Leah. I have known how super busy you all must be since there hasn't been a peep in SO long. Anyway, I am excited to see this post and know how to better pray for you.

Happy early Birthday, Kevin!
