The past few months have seemed like a mini-roller coaster ride. I’d like to share a few of the struggles and blessings I’ve experienced just this week.
My Mexican church Jerusalen has offered to give me 4 free invitations to a Kids’ Camping trip the first week of April. So Monday I went out to the Brickyard to invite 4 kids that I thought could really benefit from the 3-day camping trip. While I was talking to Lupe and her kids, a well-dressed lady approached and, well, kind of rudely interrupted us in order to promote her “mission.” She was from church that was going to be doing a campaign at the Brickyard – guess when? Yep, the same days as the camping trip. She kept going on and on about how the Americans were coming and would be bringing “blessings,” i.e., STUFF. Clothing, toys, shoes, groceries, etc. Who would want to miss that??? Oh, and btw, “we’re building a church and dining hall here at the Brickyard.”
