Less than a week!

Next Wednesday the summer Spearheaders arrive! There is a lot to get done before everyone gets here, but we are very excited for them to come. On Wednesday when they arrive we will be with everyone for three days at the Casa de los Amigos, a hostel where we have had our orientation the last few years. After the students are oriented on Saturday we will send them off with their families for their first venture into Mexico City, fun!

On a side note it has been quite hot here, which is actually unusual for this time of year, because this is the rainy season. Plus Mexico City is located at about 7000 ft. above sea level, so the weather is usually quite temperate year round. Still, I have to admit I am thankful to be enduring this heat rather than the heat in Chico, (where there is no rain and it is a lot hotter!). One of the things I really like about the heat here is that it helps our clothes to dry out faster and since we usually only have about one day a week for laundry, this is critical. :)

Please be praying for us as we continue our last push of preparing everything before the Spearheaders arrive, and for the Spearheaders as they prepare for the summer. Thanks!
