We enjoyed the singing and keeping up with several choruses that were new to us (at least to me).
Bro. Elias did a great job teaching the Sunday School lesson. This is the son of Pastor Desiderio who pastors the Bible Methodist Church in San Gabriel, Oaxaca, MX.
After the lesson, Pastor Bernardo (who, by the way, is losing his bachelor status this Friday. His wedding - boda - is Friday at 6 pm!) had a special time of prayer for Logan and for our family. The people were so gracious to assure us of their love and prayers in their testimonies and after service, too.
Cameron did a brave thing yesterday. The younger boys always go to the Spanish Sunday School classes and do their best to participate. Normally after class, the children go up front and sing a song or say their memory verse or something else they learned. Cameron said his memory verse in Spanish in front of the whole church! I was so proud of him. That's not easy to do. I still am very nervous! when I testify or pray aloud in Spanish in a service; not so much in normal conversation anymore.
I had made Rice Krispy Treats to pass out after church. I try to do this occasionally because the people enjoy it so much and I love doing it. Anyway, as everyone was eating their treat, some of the ladies wanted the recipe. There were several words I hadn't practiced that would have really! helped me explaining the recipe....smiles...But we got it figured out and they seemed happy to know how to make them.
We only got stopped once by the Mexican Military that are out "in force" (pardon the pun) because of all the drug violence on the border. We had all the necessary paperwork they were asking for and seemed to pass inspection. In fact, we were used as a training session for a new recruit. Whatever we can do to help....smiles...
Happy Monday to you.
