At long last--a post!

Ok I know it's been forever. I've been online once in the past three months, and Blogger was down! We have lots of news, though! We are learning Spanish, (irregular verbs and all!) and are able to watch a thriving ministry in action. My husband is learning faster than I am, because he gets out of the house to talk to people more, but I am tracking faithfully behind him. It has been amazing, and I am even learning how to cook some real Mexican food! I made pozole. The first time was bad--I was limited to a non-authentic recipe. The Bible college student I invited to share with us was polite, but he then offered to show me how to make it right. That's good stuff! (I tried menudo once long ago. Another unworthy recipe. And what a mess. It's my husband's favorite food. I should try it again sometime.)
Other news of us is a new addition due around October! What a blessing from the Lord!
The occasion for this posting is the first service of a new church. My brother-in-law is the pastor and he invited us to come out and help. The first service will be Easter Sunday, and we are on our way up.
Thank you all so much for your prayers! I can't say how much I appreciate it.
Oh, one more thing. I didn't realize that I had "moderate comments" switched on for several months. I was beginning to wonder what happened to all my readers. (Can we all say, "DUH!!!")Ah, well, I guess I'm not the brightest crayon in the box at times. Sorry. See you later!

It is good to see you back Sarah, you have been missed!! And congratulations with your pregnancy!

I am happy that you have made it. I love pozzole. But American spices and canned food can not do justice to Mexican food. I envy you. (just kidding)
I am sorry to say that your girls just might beat you in learning Spanish. At least my brother and sister learned it faster than my parents.

Hi-ya Sarah! Good to hear from you. The blogging world is just not the same without you.

Susan said...

Hi, Sarah! I had wondered how you were doing down there in Mexico! Congratulations on your new addition, too!

Hey Sarah Joy,
...I never thought I'd say that to another person. My name is Sarah-Joy as well, but it's my first name :) I don't think it's a very popular name, so I was quite surprised when I found this blog. I sort of stumbled onto it by mistake (hehe).
Well, I just wanted to tell you, that one day I would love to be a missionary/evangelist. I'd love to say that I already am a missionary, as we all should be in our hometown, but I have a lot of work to do yet! I hope to visit Mexico someday =)
Take Care and God Bless,
