Day Tripper

Although we were coming off a long day everyone was up, fed and ready to head out by 8:15 Wednesday morning.  Our entire group of 15 went with Jaime Restrepo to see the Encuentro site.  The pictures I had seen could not do it justice.  It is a beautiful, well-maintained site that will easily and comfortably accomodate the 250 people expected for next week.  Here is one photo of the grounds.

I almost literally stumbled on this reminder that we are not visiting in the U.S.:

We worshiped with the Manizales church in the evening and I was asked to give the lesson.  This congregation is very active. Jaime Restrepo and men from this group have established numerous churches in other towns, particularly within a short radius of the city.  I do not have pictures available now, but should post something later. We will meet again with this group on Saturday evening.  In the meantime there is a lot of organization (and re-organization) for the Encuentro. Last-minute changes with staff and other surprises require many adjustments to planning.  There should be plenty to do before Sunday.

    Thank you so much, Luke, Caleb, and Jennifer, for your safe arrival e-mails. I am glad to know that everyone is well. Did everyone get the rest of their luggage? Michael must be in lizard heaven, given that photo, but I imagine some others aren’t quite so thrilled having critters like that around. Is it an Iguana? Thank you so much for these updates on this blog, I enjoy it alot. You all are in my thoughts and prayers, Pat
