Update on Life: I got back my final grade from my Jonathan Edwards class. I got a B+. I am so happy to have received a decent grade on what was probably the hardest class I’ve ever taken. Janell was a great support during the class, letting me have time off to work on the projects and papers.
July 5-15, I will be in Mexico with a group of volunteers from First Baptist Church, Naples. They will be helping with Vacation Bible School at our church Dios Es Amor. They will also be helping with a “youth week” and doing some service projects and street evangelism. I am hoping to have this group encourage the youth ministry at our church. I hope that the youth pastor will be an encouragement to the youth ministry students who are serving at the church, also. It is going to kill me to be away from Janell and Nathan for 11 days. It is going to be difficult for Janell, too, as she will have to feed Nathan all throughout the nights.
We went to the doctor today for Nathan’s “2 month” check up. He’s 10 weeks now, so it wasn’t really a 2 month check up. Overall, he was very healthy. He weighed in a hefty 12 pounds 13 ounces, 23 and 1/3 inches. He’s getting beefy. Plus, he got 4 shots. It was our last visit to his doctor in the US before we go back to Mexico, so we will be needing to look hard for a doctor when we get back to the big city.
Thanks to everyone who came to our Mexican Fiesta on Monday night at New Hope. Thanks for braving the weather to see us. We had a great time with everyone. It was great to see old friends again and spend time with everyone who came. We hope that it gave you a greater idea of what it is that we are doing in Mexico. Thanks for your support.
Well…we just got back from Naples. The meeting with the group went great, and I think we are going to have a pretty good trip to Mexico with them. They have a great attitude about doing whatever it is that is necessary, so that should work out fine. We even got to stop at some outlet malls on the way, so it was a good 2 days.
This weekend, we are on a road trip to Naples, Florida, to meet with the group of young people they are taking to Mexico in early July. On the way there, we stopped at an outlet mall to look around, and we bought Nathan some sunglasses (and a bathing suit). Tomorrow afternoon, we have a meeting with the group, and then we will be going back home to spend Father’s Day with our dads. It’s a quick trip, but it’s good to be out of the “normal routine.”
