Hola!! This year my kids participated in the International Fair and we did the country Mexico. Since Chloe, Kenny and I went last year we couldn’t brought back lots of goodies to represent the country.
Chloe stayed with our display this year, which was nice so Kenny and I could browse and Camye, Blake and Paul were busy running around filling out their passports around the other countries.
I have been thinking of what I would write in this blog for the mission trip to Mexico we just returned from. I am afraid my words will not do this trip justice.
This has been the best experience for myself, Chloe and Kenny. Chloe wants to skip Disney next year and all of us go to the City of Children. Chloe asked me how much was I willing to spend on her backpack. I said $20…she said can I have the cash instead to send to the orphanage and I will carry an old one. The orpahnage we stayed in is a wonderful wonderful place!! The kids are loved and taken care of. I cant believe the generosity I could see there. They came from sad homes but have been blessed by being at the City of Children.We built park benches for the orpahnage there.
On the first day I was there I did benevolence to members of the church in Manadero. I seriously cried for about 36 hours straight while I was there. I didnt know the commericals on TV were real. The poverty was real.
Kenny was in charge of construction. We drywalled and insulated a ladies house Mami Juanita. She was a lovely woman and had been a christian for many years.
GOD BLESS AMERICA! We dont even know how good we have it. Flushing toilet paper, having walls, having a floor, having food, having drinkable water!!!! Yes even the Mexicans cant drink their water!!!
I was trying to choose pictures for this blog…I cant choose. So here is a link to my facebook photo album where you can view them all, even if you dont have a facebook.
I do apologize that this blog isnt as great as my others. Maybe I can blog more about it later.
