Yes, I spent the afternoon making purple, tissue paper and celophane flowers. It was fun. I made so many. Actually, let me go count so I can be more specific.....................................
31, 31 GINORMOUS purple, tissue paper and celophane flowers. I had good help though. Lolita, Jade, and Aaileya kept me company. You know what they say, "many hands makes light work".
Ana's 2 sisters, her son, and her nephew all arrived this week. The group from CA left on Friday of last week. Within the hour a very dear family, the Nauerts, should be arriving. Tomorrow Rochelle arrives. On friday a dear friend, Adrian also arrived for a visit. Adrian used to live on the ranch, actually he lived with my family for almost 4 years. It has been a huge blessing to have him and his friend, Jose, here with us. They've been a huge help.
Earlier this week my friend Marissa stopped in as well. She also brought two cousins and two friends. The cousins , Jessice and Eli, are wonderful christians from Los Mochis. The friends are Petra (a wonderful girl I've known for a long time) and her friend Christy. Both these girls work for a school for the deaf and blind in Los Mochis. It was such a blessing to have them here.
So as I said we've been getting ready for Friday. The theme verse this year is Matthew 1o:22b, "mas el que persevere hasta el fin, se salvara".......... I'm not going to translate it into english. I want you to do your homework!!!!! ;)
Please pray that the Lord would ordain all the speakers on Friday. We hope that it will be a day that will bless and refresh everyone involved.
Roshon, Dan and Ana's daughter, is back on the ranch now as well. She was in Montana for about a month visiting friends. Its so good to have her and her beautiful children back with us.
Paul and Pam Cooper will be leaving on Monday for a visit to the states. We will miss them while they're gone!!!!!
As for those of you who are asking what keeps my days busy.... I don't rightly know. What I do know is that I attend biblestudies constantly (such a blessing). I translate, help with worship, and all that good stuff. Upon returning to the ranch there is also a list of things that must be done. But praise the Lord for His goodness, He knows that we need time to clean as well.
Ps. the girls in the pic at the top are (from left to right) Marilu, Lolita, and myself of course! My dear sisters, I love them so. They make my days here happy ones!
