Typical Day

Our first day on campus was killer. We have training in the morning ( Old Testament class, ministry/evanagelism training, men/women’s time, ect.) then we are off to the school. We left at 12:00 and arrived at Iteso at 12:45 (it’s a 40 minute walk and a 7 minute bus ride)…got dressed and the students took us straight to a spinning class (my first one ever- I thought I might die), then they wanted to go straight to kickboxing…we finally went starving to the cafeteria to eat at 3:00 (their normal lunch time), then out to play soccer at 4:30…left for the journey home around 5:30 and walked the 40 minutes up hill to the church…and this is a typical day. Sports/ the gym is a great place for us to meet people but it will take our bodies some time to get used to our physical activity here. We get back to the church around 6:30 and the students start coming over around 8:00 to hang out. "the rest of the laborer is sweet" takes on a new meaning at the end of the day...

I love your blog. You are absolutely hysterical! How are you feeling? Sounds like you're experiencing some of the glories of a Tommi day (one aerobics class after another!) But I don't have to walk uphill to church!

Well, you are missed and prayed for and I can't wait to hear more!

Hey! Love the blog - Remember the rules from 1st Mexican adventure - hydrate and sunscreen. Hint - eat a snack before the school trek! Hope you are feeling better! (By the way - it's a Staph infection - staff are people you work with, so I guess you could consider them to be infectious:-)! Praying for you - Love, Mom.
