Turkey and Kids

I have been here now for just over two weeks already. The time has been good as we have gotten quite a bit accomplished and God has given us good times of fellowship around His word. He has been showing me that I must come to His word with the attitude that I will be obedient and apply to my life what He shows me then He will continue to reveal more of Himself. His word is alive and applicable to me each and everyday, but will I apply it everyday?

Here are a few verses I read this morning in Colossians 3:1-4 If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on the earth. For you have died and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is your life will appear, then you also will appear with Him in glory.

Verse 17 And whatever you do, in word or deed do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.

On Sunday afternoons they have a meeting with the children from the neighbourhood around the building where they meet on Sundays. They have similar meetings on Wednesdays and Fridays in two other neighbourhoods. They have on average about 40 children and some adults come out. They sing songs, learn a Bible verse and then have a lesson taught to them about the verse. There are so many children and these are the years that will shape the rest of their lives. Please pray that these children will come to a clear understanding of their need of the Saviour and accept Him at an early age and live their lives to the honor of their Heavenly Father.

This picture is from this past Sunday, they are enjoying sing about Bible stories and about the character of the Lord Jesus. They are very enthusiastic when it comes to singing even though they may have a little trouble staying on key, but that doesn't matter.

The conference in Tepic was a blessing to many. There were about 180 in attendance with some good ministry shared. I didn't understand much but others said that is was helpful and profitable for them.

The boys just chillen on the pack and play.
Tuesday Jason and Shelly Wahl had us all over to their house for an early Thanksgiving dinner, as Thanksgiving isn't till next Thursday I think. We all enjoyed an amazing feast of Turkey and potatoes and all the trimmings that goes with them.

James is carving up the turkey.

The amazing buffet.
After the amazing meal we did a little shopping in Tepic before going home. These next few pictures were taken in the Wal Mart parking lot when we had a little time to kill.

Natalia enjoy being able to motor around in this big open space.

I guess that big open space isn't very clean, but boy was it ever fun.

She knew I couldn't resist not taking a picture of here just sitting there on the curb like that.

The work on the burger trailer continues. It hasn't progressed as fast as we thought it might but we are usto that. We have it finally ready for the last coat of paint. We got all the electrical done installing lights and receptacles and put in the water tank and all the plumbing for the sink.

All taped up and ready for paint.

Here you can see the lights, the six inch pipe there is our water tank. The thing at the end of the trailer all taped up is the hood that goes over the BBQ.

It seems James and Nelly have another kid, not another child. One of their goats gave birth last night and they have another one do any day now and it looks like she will be having two kids, because she is very big.

The new kid on the block.
