Busy Busy Busy

So lately I've been doing a lot of office kind of stuff around the Romano's house. It's stuff I enjoy and I am good at so that's good. I've made them a blog, print and organized pictures of all of the teams over the past three years, created a cleaning schedule for the teams, cleaned out the team apartments, made chore signs, fixed the curtains in the apartments, made meals, cleaned dishes...the list goes on. We went to San Diego this past weekend because Rick spoke in a church. It was nice to be back in the States and in normal driving conditions for a while. I had to drive home to Ensenada. I definitely don't like to drive here but it wasn't too bad. I prayed the whole way that I wouldn't get lost or get into trouble and everything went great.

I Love you guys.

Numero Dos

It's the second day.

The team that was here when I got here left a few hours ago. They were from Canada. Today we finished painting a church and did a VBS (Vacation Bible School). A VBS is where we go to one of the churches here and bring the kids from the surrounding houses to sing and dance with them, teach them a Bible study and do a craft.

My Spanish is coming along very well. Faustino, one of the pastors, declared himself as my maestro (teacher) for the summer. I'll be just about fluent by the time I get home!!

This summer I really want to learn to trust and understand God's love for me. I just started reading this book by Brennan Manning called "Ruthless Trust". I want to understand how overwhelming his love is. If you know God's love for you there is a new joy and freedom in your life. I want that.

Now we don't have a team until June 14th. But that doesn't mean I won't have anything to do. The projects I have so far are to set up an iPod with all Spanish music, create a blog for Rick & Tami, create a chart for the VBS's this year with each kids name on it which will keep track of how often they memorize a verse, bring a parent to church, and something else that I forget (if they get 20 stars at the end of the summer they get to go to the Chinese buffet here!), organize clean up strategies for this summer, and help Rebecca (one of the missionaries daughters) to braid 400 bracelets.

I'll try to take some pictures soon to put on here.

Some of you guys asked for a mailing address. You can send things here:

Sarah Roney
c/o Rick & Tami Romano
9050 Mira Mesa Blvd
San Diego, CA 92126

It's a church in San Diego that keeps the Romano's mail for them. We'll be able to check it one a week or so.

Ok, I have to go braid bracelts.

I love you guys.

I'm HERE!!

The whole trip to Mexico went smooth. Much easier than my trip to Guinea two years ago if you remember that!

It's good to see familiar faces. I was only here for a week but it's nice to know people already. Gives me a little head start. The team I was on from South Hills left an impression here. Because of our team they now love the "I like Bananas" song. People have told me that the kids will sing that song over and over and over. Except their version is in Spanish.

I don't have too much to report. I've only been here for a day. But I just wanted to let you all know I made it safe. The missionaries have wireless internet so I'll be able to post on here pretty often.

I would love to answer any questions you guys have about my trip or about Mexico. Just let me know. Thanks for going on this journey with me.
