ABC WEDNESDAY LETTER " M "



Its time for ABC Wednesday again.
Today's letter is " M ".
There is no other choice for ME but MEXICO.
I arrived back in the U.S. on Friday night with a slight case of the flu.
The MONTEZUMA'S revenge type illness hit a lot of the kids.
Fortunately the Doc gave ME something for it and I slept MOST of the 14 hour ride home.

I'm somewhere in that MASS of humanity in the first picture.

815 MAD cap teens and adults had an amazing week full of MEANINGFUL experiences.



Our MORNING  MENU was pancakes, oatmeal, and  eggs.
We MADE tons of pancakes and a gazillion pans of scrambled eggs and sausages.

These first two photos were taken by our trip photographer.
The last two by me.





Every day we cracked 160 Dozen eggs ... that's "MILLIONS"! 
Well, almost....
It was a great time to MAKE friends and just laugh a lot.



Here is the MAIN reason we were in MEXICO.
Isn't she beautiful?
Loving on her and giving people in her village supplies to MAKE their
lives easier was the best MOTIVATOR of all.
In the coming days I will post MORE photos.
This is about all MY energy level will allow right now.

Glad you were able to sleep most of the 14 hours on your way home. Marvelous M photos.

Wanda said...

Sue, love your Mexico pictures.

I've been out of touch, as you know, but this week has started to feel normal again and I'm going to try to post more, and share again my life and thoughts.

Also, I noticed the "apron" in your last post.

BTW I responded to your comment on my Apron Blog in the comments. Something I'm going to try to do from now on.

Betsy does, and I really enjoy reading her responses.

More details on Tahoe soon...it's coming up. Yeah!

Rajesh said...

Wonderful shots.
I hope you have recovered now.

Lisa said...

Looks like a Marvelous trip. So happy you are bad safe and sound (sans Montezuma's Revenge). I'm sure your trip blessed many, many people.

Sandra said...

about the eyes watching you. i slept all my life until late 20's with my arms and legs in the middle of the bed, i could not let them hang off the edge because of what might be under there, including eyes. i would lay on my cot on my back stiff with my arms down by my side. it was the dark that did it, no night lights back then just dark and we lived in the country where dark is dark.

Tim Rice said...

That was quite a picture of the kids. Looks like you had a great time with them!

Life with Kaishon said...

You are so amazing! I love what you do. Thank you. Thank you. THANK YOU for serving Jesus out loud. Love you to the moon!

So sorry you got the flu. Glad you were able to sleep on the way home.

And, oh wow - she's beautiful. I can see why you do what you do.
