Remembering A Year Ago With Thanksgiving (A pictorial review)
A little over a year ago, at around 1 p.m. in the afternoon, a got a rather frantic call from Mayra. "Come, quickly! Two guys with guns just robbed the Journey. I'm o.k." I'm near where Elena used to live, at the San Judas Tadeo pharmacy."
After collecting our wits, we made our way to the local police department to file a vehicle theft report. Turns out that we were unable to complete the report that day due to a frightful lack of information and an almost comical series of Catch-22s. We returned back to the police station the next morning, now convinced we'd likely never see our vehicle again. The police station (actual picture below) was a bit, err...disorganized.
And I was able to continue to enjoy my lovely, beautiful wife, who went through this whole ordeal with a remarkable amount of peace and grace! Below, a recent picture taken in Herman Cortez's house in La Antigua, Veracruz! Those are roots behind us...and we know that the roots we have as a couple and a family also run deep, nourished by living water, anchored to an eternal Savior.
