The Days Just Run Together...

Well, we are having an absolute blast here with Kami and Sara...."paty all da time"!!!! Kami has gotten right back into the swing of things here with her spanish and the congregation is excited to see them all again.

I have been making them "pound the pavement" with me in service and they have been little troopers! They also brought the rain with them, so for 2 days straight it poured here!

We are officially in the month of "carnaval" here in Cuenca. Which as you will remember from last year is the month of water balloons, mischevous acts and basically any sin you can commit before you repent for lent. I received my initiation the first week of the month when I was conducting a bible study at a doorstep and all of a sudden.....BAM! I felt this stinging pain! Amazingly enough, it was remarkably similar to when I was beaten with the stick! Except this time I also had the sensation of water running down my legs!!! A pick-up truck was flying down the road tossing water balloons out the window, and well, I guess it is more points for a foreigner!! I have to admit, it was hilarious...we couldn't stop laughing. The only bummer was that, yes, at that speed a water balloon feels more like a rock and also, I had another study to go to afterward. So, off I went walking to my study...swish, swish, swish...and then when I left my second study there was a huge wet mark on the couch!!!! And the month has only just begun...
