Enchiladas, tacos al pastor, holding black-eyed Mexican babies, visiting family, fresh squeezed orange juice for 50 cents a liter, chilaquiles, rotisserie chicken, quesadillas, going to a movie, theater popcorn with butter, nachos with double cheese, riding my other motorcycle, shopping at Wal-Mart, going to the mall, Valentina hot sauce, sleeping in, running at the park, staying up too late at family parties...


These are a few of my favorite Mexico.  Unfortunately, in Guatemala, many of these things are absent.  There are some substitutes, but it's just not the same.  Although Guatemala borders Mexico and was once part of Mexico, it is another world.  But we're adapting.


Last Sunday, Areli and I gave a report of our experience and message about missions in our home church in Mexico City.  It was good to be home.  Well I think it is home...or maybe it's Michigan...or maybe it's Santa Cruz del Quiché.  I don´t know anymore.  But what I do know is that I'm happy to be together with Areli working for the Lord.


Tomorrow, we pick up a couple who are both medical students.  We'll be crazy busy until Thursday and then things will shut down here until after Easter.


Here is a photo album report about our new clinic.
