Mexico Bound

Just thought I would update my blog followers....this is an e-mail sent to friends and family. (These are pictures from last years trip.)

We leave tomorrow morning at 0730 from A-town and will arrive in Dinuba, CA sometime around 8 pm (or later) to stay for the night. We then will travel on to San Luis, Mexico on Saturday and will arrive sometime in the later evening.

After talking with our contact in Yuma, he said that the climate in San Luis and surrounding areas is very peaceful and there is no reason to be nervous about the dangers we have been hearing about on the news.
We’ll be helping the local church work on some projects during the week as well as handing out some food and clothing to the people of San Luis. They have so little there and many of them live in conditions that (to us) are simply deplorable. We will also get to spend time with the children who live in the orphanage that we will be staying at. These kids are so sweet and I can't wait to see some of the friends I made last time!
We are excited to spend time with the people and do what little we can to impact their physical living conditions. We hope you will be praying for us while we are gone.
We will be leaving San Luis next Friday afternoon and arriving in Dinuba, CA in the evening to stay the night. We will then be headed home on Saturday the 27th and should arrive in Albany sometime in the evening.
Looking forward to sharing pictures and our experience with you when we get back! The girls are REALLY excited and so are we. We are hoping the drive down/back will be smooth and that the kids will be un-annoying (is that a word?). Right now the long car ride is my biggest concern...since Adam needs to drive most of the time so he doesn't get car sick, I will be "on" most of the time to keep the kids calm and quiet since we will be in a van with 6 other people.

Thank you everyone for caring about us, our safety, our sanity etc. We love you all!

Ephesians 6:10-12 (The Message)
And that about wraps it up. God is strong, and He wants you strong. So take everything the Master has set out for you, well-made weapons of the best materials. And put them to use so you will be able to stand up to everything the devil throws your way. This is no afternoon athletic contest that we'll walk away from and forget about in a couple of hours. This is for KEEPS, a life-or-death fight to the finish against the devil and all his angels.
