It is about time I introduced you to the newest members of our gringo family. This is Brian and Dena and their daughter Drew. They arrived from Canada just before the english convention and are fitting in very well. Poor things though - I don't envy them this first year here as it is really tough not knowing the language. They have the right attitude though and being a lot younger than us - will surely learn it fast. Anyway we all went to the english meeting on Sunday and of course we enjoyed the association with english speaking brothers. You can see by the photos that it is very warm here at the moment. We are not having the same weather as last year - hardly any rain at all - just sunny clear days. It's very pleasant when you are walking not to have to drag along coats and umbrellas.
So after this photo was taken (I stole it off Dena) - we went out for lunch to a all-you-can eat place. Bad decision! By 7.30 I was feeling very seedy - I had eaten something bad and needless to say I did not have a very good night. Spent yesterday lounging around feeling sorry for myself but today was a much better day. It is 8.30 pm and we have just arrived home from our study with Flora and her brother Carlos. They want us to go back again on Thursday night so it is a real boost to our confidence - that they want to learn from us. I asked Flora if she knew the story of Noah tonight and she said she had read about him in the book I left her the other day for her kids (My book of bible stories) - she said she read most of the book, so I was very happy to hear that. No doubt I will keep you informed as to their progress, lets hope they continue on as they started.
