Lunch at the Crazy Rabbit

Friend Denny flew down yesterday, and Samuel and I picked him up at the airport. The airport parking lot, by the way, was a full as I have ever seen it. We drove up to the fifth floor, the roof...still not spots. I was finally allowed to park in a no parking area after I threatened to drive out and not pay. I said it in my best gringo accent. Always gets results!

Then, after picking up a certified copy of our contract in Chalco, a mid-day lunch at El Conejo Loco (The Crazy Rabbit), with rabbit, arrachera, cecina and all sorts of other good stuff.  Mmmm!

Check out the Cru video below entitled "My Last Day."

Quote of the Day: We have a choice in how we respond to every encounter with another person. Usually this choice is made unconsciously because we fall into familiar patterns. If the pattern is an evaluative response, there is a good chance that cross-cultural ministry will be minimally effective. Thus we must practice more open responses, such as probing (asking questions that go deeper into the topic), interpretation (saying back in our own words what we've heard the other person say), support (best when feelings are being expressed and empathy is most appropriate), and understanding (asking for more clarification, illustration or detail).
