Happy weekend to you all! I haven’t shared any links and good reads in the past few weeks, so I am so happy to be able to do that again! Summer is quickly winding down in the Central Valley. It has been so wonderful to reconnect with some friends, family and my church. It still seems a bit surreal that I will not be returning to Mexico in a couple weeks. This dorm mama’s heart is missing my girls so much. I’m already dreaming of the letters I am going to send and the Skype dates we are going to have to have. It’s scary and exciting to see where this new journey God has placed me on is going to go!
I was looking through some photos from earlier this summer that I wanted to share with you. Two of my dear girls Leticia and Isabel are from the Otomi tribe in Querétaro, Mexico. I had the joy of having them live with me these past two years. Isabel recently turned 15 and I was invited to go to her Quincencerra.
It was such an experience getting to travel further into Mexico and visit them in their village. Life is so different there than it is in Northern Baja. It flows at a much simpler pace. We helped plan the festivities, decorate and spend time with many different people in the village. It was humbling to be shown such kindness, to be welcomed into their homes and see a bit of life there. I loved the mixture of languages that flew around me, Spanish , Mexican Sign Language, English, Otomi and American Sign Language. All five languages expressed the same joy for life and love for our Savior.
