These aren’t as good as THE GOOD NEWS…but they’re good nonetheless.
- Our annual Mexico resident visas are approved and the lawyer just needs me to get to the bank and pay up so they can be sent to us. They expired April 3rd so we’re only a month and a week overdue. Not bad considering we discovered the boys’ passports had expired in early March and we didn’t realize this until late March! Praise God for getting this annual hassle through in pretty good time. I was guessing we wouldn’t see these until June given the passport delay which was my fault.
- The first semester of “co-op” finished the last week of educational meetings and we just have remaining an end of year party to enjoy next Thursday. We’re really glad with how it worked out and the participation of so many students (about 25) and parents (4 or 5 besides the 2 of us). Praise God for the success of this first-time experience which bodes well for trying this again in the fall!
- The library catalog has officially topped 5,500 books (see http://www.librarything.com/catalog/alanbethcam for our collection). We’ve still got some boxes of books to input and various other books around. It’s a huge task and we don’t spend a lot of time on it but poco a poco (little by little) we get to it.
- The boys and I got Bethie a surprise Mother’s Day gift that we think she’s really going to like. (Shhh…it’s a surprise…at least until she reads this post on Friday…oops!) I mention this because I’m terrible with remembering to get something which actually works well in the States because you can then pick something up 1/2 price after Mother’s Day…ha-ha…just kidding (sort of!). Praise God for our moms and for Bethie…she’s a great mom…there’s a lot of pressure and stress being a missionary wife, a missionary mother and a full-time missionary worker. She’s got way too much to do and does it all very well. I love you babe! (oh…and what’s for supper? just kidding!)
- We are still in good health…don’t have the flu nor do we know anyone who has it. Some CAM missionaries in Mexico City (Texcoco to be exact) do know a couple in their church with this dreadful flu. After a hospital stint with a very bad case of pneumonia, they apparently are recovering.
