aguascalientes

last weekend, becky, kandi and i traveled to aguascalientes (a town about 2 hours away) for a student ministry training. we arrived friday afternoon and spent the afternoon/evening shopping and hanging out with another missionary. then we spent all day saturday at the training event. it was hosted by the latin american branch of youthspecialties, whose conferences i have attended in the US a couple of times. it was a long, hot day (it’s officially hot season! and there is no air conditioning to be found…) but so good. the speaker was argentinian and his spanish was very difficult to understand, but he had good powerpoint notes and that ALWAYS helps! all in all, it was a really great trip.

this eagle in downtown aguascalientes marks the very center of mexico.
we ate dinner at a wonderful restaurant. it was so cute!
i snuck a picture during one of the sessions.

more goodbyes

one of my least favorite parts of being a missionary is that we have to say goodbye to people all too often! last week, the haynes hosted a going away party for the treme’s and the sorrell’s, two missionary families that i have grown to love since coming to Guadalajara. both families are leaving mexico to take on new positions in other locations and even though we hate to see them leave, we are excited for the many things God has in store for them. and the really great part is that i will get to see them both when i go to richmond for debriefing conference in december!

landri is playing soccer this spring and a couple of weekends ago i went to one of her games. although they didn’t win this game (they lost in a “double overtime” by one goal), landri scored twice and played great!

kaitlyn and mackenzie made signs to cheer landri on!
