We have been in Mexico for the last week.
For the last 18 months we have been called to serve as short term
Specialists for the Welfare Department of
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.
We aren't sure how long we will serve in this assignment,
But will serve as long as we are needed.
Currently we are in Mexico, working with a senior couple
Called to serve here and work on the food initiative.
That is the area in which we work, specializing in teaching
Self-Reliance. Our assignment is to teach Priesthood leadership
How to discover their resources in their area,
And use those resources of people, knowledge, and home
Supplies. Their resources can be used in gardening or in raising small
Animals, so that local people can have more of an ability to
Sustain their personal and family needs right in their own yard,
And at a budget they can afford.
So here we are in Mrxico training this couple how to do this.
We have a few slow days now,
Because we leave on Saturday to tour areas of Mexico and introduce
This to the Priesthood leaders that have requested this kind of help.
There are about 10 missionary couples in Mexico City,
So they have adventures planned for evenings and pdays.
Tonight I will attend a concert with them, Dana isn't interested,
A violinist, it should be fun.
Studying Spanish has been on my agenda since January,
And I am not great at it, still my vocabulary is limited, but I can
Understand some, and I am learning everyday.
Will post some pics as the weeks continued,
We will be here for a month.
Hugs for now,
