Spring Break Update

Ok so now it’s the 24th of March and we are a couple of weeks into spring Mission Adventures, in the morning it is off the hook with over 250 people eating breakfast and then off to build or do evangelism in town. This week we have a lot of skateboarders with us so in the afternoon when they come home they take over the parking lot of the apartments and generate a lot of noise. Mostly it is the boodaloodaloodaloodaloop sound of wheels going on the tile walkways. I made the same sound myself when I was a freshman in High School and the Vice Principal promptly confiscated my skateboard, for right now at least it is a skater friendly area so there will be no confiscations of skateboards or any other toys for that matter.

Misty has finished the Spanish School and is now practicing and it has truly given her the courage to just get out and communicate, and be free to make mistakes and learn out on the streets. So THANK YOU Sparks Christian Fellowship for the financial assistance, and good job Misty.

We are into the second week of Spring vacation for our 2 kindergarten students; I had seen them getting pretty stressed out from all the exams and research projects they were having to turn in, plus there was the chemistry lab in the afternoons’. They are doing pretty good right now though, today we went to see Horton Hears a Who. In Spanish it is called Horton y el Mundial de los Quien. I also saw that a new comedy that came out called Drillbit Taylor is there also but in Mexico it is titled Guardespalda Escolar, which means school bodyguard. Emily and Joey liked the movie.

I have a very great helper in the kitchen right now named Imelda, she was here last year for about 5 months and returned last fall and did a Discipleship Training School. So for now I have her very able hands in the kitchen and it is a true blessing. Imelda is a graduate of the Cordon Bleu Cooking School in London England and has 6 years of experience in restaurants in England and Canada. We are going to have an intern from the Cordon Bleu school in Portland, Oregon here for a few months in the summer I am also looking forward to that, this intern did the baking and pastry program, so we will be trying to get a lot of homemade bread, pastries, and muffins. The main goal right now is to get a true team in the kitchen so the workload gets spread around a bit better.

Sunday March 9, 2008

Hello everybody, it is Bill here the Moss Family is enjoying an intimate breakfast of cereal and blueberry muffins and Herbie Rides Again is on the television. Tomorrow we will be ending a somewhat "quieter" season and will start the Spring version of Mission Adventures; we have 4 weeks of teams coming for a week at a time. There will be a lot of High Schoolers running around.

Misty is about to start the third week of her Spanish School, the class goes for 8 hours a day and she is doing really good. They started with lesson 1 and they are now on lesson 10, she has a couple more weeks left and then to practice. Joey and Emily are about to start spring break and this week they are going to participate in a Mini Olympics. They have been going to gymnastics on Mondays and Wednesdays for a few weeks now and Joey likes the bar and the trampoline. On the bar Joey does something called the Alligator where he moves hand to hand sideways along the bar. Emily likes practicing jumping with her class of 3 year olds and she also likes Cinderella which doesn't really have too much to do with Gymnastics but she talks a lot about Cinderella; she really wants to see Cinderellas house but for now we might just have to settle for a trip to Sleeping Beauty's house because Cinderella's house is in Florida.
