Kids Club Begins

The rain came in buckets twenty minutes before the first day of kids club started yesterday, but then the sky cleared up and the fun began. Club is starting at 6 p.m. all this week, in order to allow those kids who go to school in the afternoon shift (1 p.m. to 6 p.m.) to also make it to club.

In addition to probably around 40 kids, around 15 youth were also attended their class yesterday.  The ladies must have made around 100 tortas, or Mexican sandwiches using fresh rolls, because afterwards everyone, including a bunch of parents, all had tortas in their hands.  Sort of a hidden agenda perhaps?  The parents think that the activity is just for their kids, but there they are, having a good time, talking about the recent presidential and municipal election, and getting to know our church.

The interns, the girls that is, returned from a weekend trip to San Miguel de Allende.  Looks like they had a good time!  Check out Tina's blog for more.

Quote of the Day:The person… who looks for quick results in the seed planting of well-doing will be disappointed. If I want potatoes for dinner tomorrow, it will do me little good to go out and plant potatoes in my garden tonight. There are long stretches of darkness and invisibility and silence that separate planting and reaping During the stretches of waiting there is cultivating and weeding and nurturing and planting still other seeds.
