The British gentleman who took Rita's name and quotes in the airport was a journalist/reporter from one of London's liberal newspapers! How many of you thought it was a government agent at first? THAT IS WHAT I THOUGHT! So glad it wasn't. I haven't spoken to her today since they don't have their phone or Internet yet. I will keep you posted. Oh and please pray for Clint. He flew to Chattanooga this morning to pick up the van they purchased from a friend. He started driving home today and should finish the trip on in here by tomorrow.

Agustin and Shane are doing well in Mexico. They had a wonderful time at his sister's graduation celebration Saturday night. To my disbelief---they left the party before the Mariachis arrived! It was pouring "gatos y perros" all evening and even a hail storm took place. They got wet just getting into the party. They left the party at 2:30 Sunday morning to get a few hours sleep before church time. The food was delicious I'm told and all were so very tired and ready to go home!
I was pleased that everyone loved the gifts Agustin, Shane, and I picked out for them!
It was wonderful hearing Agustin speaking about opportunities to visit with his cousins, aunts, and uncles, even some of his former Sunday School teachers! Yes, Rita! He was able to present Shane to Hermana Louisa Webb and to Pastor Jimmy Lee!! *smiles and winks* They asked about you guys and were wondering how you were handling all the troubles in Venezuela right now. Agustin caught them all up to speed. He said they actually had some very nice conversations! He saw Luisa and Brother Lee Sunday evening at a new church that has recently been started in Queretaro.
Oh before Shane left, he wrote a little story and posted it. Would some of you mind going to his blog and leaving him a comment or two? I know he would just love seeing them and reading them when he gets home! Thanks! His address is http://www.battleking-shane.blogspot.com/
I had a busy day today so I am off to bed! Sleep peacefully!
