This past weekend we went to visit some friends who are leaving back to the states soon. This was the only opportunity we had to see them, so we took off on Saturday to Mazatlan and came back on Monday. It was a great break; we wish it could have been at least one day longer, but we sure enjoyed our time with Roger and Hazel. Rebecka did not want to get out of the pool at all, she has such a fun time swimming and playing in the water. We also went out to the ocean and rode some waves, walked along the beach, and enjoyed one another's company. Thank you Roger and Hazel for time well spent.
Last week was a hard week. After the Missionary Care Team left, I realized that I was a candidate for burnout. I have felt fine for the past year, but really tired. It may have been psychological, but last week I felt like I couldn't go on; I was so tired that I lost the joy of the ministry. Taking a couple days off really helped. Amber took care of the youth meeting and Dave who was already on the schedule to lead worship, led on Sunday. We have an event with the youth this weekend and some visitors from Sinaloa coming, but I feel energized and am excited about this weekend. This week has been good. Thank you for your prayers.
