Amor Por Juarez

Another incredible week at Emmanuel…one I am sure none of us will ever forget.

So many great memories…the children’s service, delicious meals, countless hugs and kisses from the beautiful niños, Wii dance party at Adams’, carne asada with Keren and Armando, Kung Fu Panda with the boys, mural painting, the beautiful view from the roof, watching the kids put on their Spring school program the list could go on and on!

We are so blessed to have spent time with such incredible people in such an amazing place…

Incredible

This place never disappoints.

It’s incredible.

Yesterday some of the leaders led the weekly Thursday “Youth Service.” Usually, it’s a time of praise, worship, skits, some sort of teaching and prayer. Fun to see the kids in a different (although oftentimes still hyper!) setting.

In the past, these youth services emerge as the highlight of the trip. As of tonight, it’s sealed in the bag…yet again….absolutely INCREDIBLE. (I’m still in process mode.)

Two profound things happened (and I apologize upfront because even the words cannot paint the picture of what we experi

The Blanket Game!

The internet is up and running again! We’ll try to get a few more blogs of pics and videos up over the next two days! But, we are safe. It’s been a great past few days. Lots of great stories to share…

Speaking of videos, my family especially would be SOOOO proud of me. Growing up, my siblings would play this game that we titled “The Blanket Game.” We usually played it when we were stuck inside on a cold winter’s night, and the game entailed a pitch black room where one individual would be blindfolded (or covered with a blanket). The “Blanket” had to stay on his/her knees, moving around

Snow and Slow Responses

Hey all! Sorry for the lack of blogs yesterday. The internet is down (I am blogging on my phone), which has made it difficult to keep you up-to-date. The internet might be down because of the high winds and snow (yes, SNOW!) we received last night. But, things are going great! Today we are helping in the classrooms and beginning our art project/mural. Should be a good time. Thanks for the prayers! We will hopefully be able to send you some more pics and videos later today. Keep pressing on…

Meet Scotti

Scotti is a Junior at Bethel University. She enjoys eating LongJohn donuts by first eating the chocolate frosting then enjoys the golden outermost layer (after scraping it off), and finally rolls up the rest of the donut into a big ball where she delights her mouth with two big bites. Everyone, meet Scotti.

If you had to eat one food for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Doughnuts. No comparison to a gas station long john with custard filling.

What is the one thing you were most looking forward to on this trip?

Getting to see the kids that I have previously met and continuing to build relationships with

Meet Ariel

Ariel is a happy-go-lucky optimist who turns blotchy-red when nervous. Everyone, meet Ariel:

If you had to eat one food for the rest of your life, what would it be?

I would eat Pad Thai any day, anywhere.

What is the one thing you were most looking forward to on this trip?

I was most looking forward to spending time with some of my best friends and getting to know and love on the kids that I have heard so much about.

In five years, what do you hope you are doing?

In five years I would like to be working in the swimming world.  Coaching or training the technical aspect of the sport is what I would
