Trip to Edmonton
Juanita flew north to meet the new addition to the family and spend the last week of January and the first week of February helping the new mom. I took her to the airport in Harlingen and she flew from there to Houston. The flight from Houston to Salt Lake City was diverted to Denver due to a winter storm so she got into Edmonton rather later than intended. Fortunately she had the foresight to have her winter coat with her in carry on luggage. The checked luggage arrived in Edmonton a day later. As onebag.com used to say, "there are two kinds of luggage, carry-on and lost."
She had a good visit with Rebekah and Nick and Ezekial, plus Debbie and Ernie and their famliy came to Edmonton for a few days. So everyone had a good visit and a good time of catching up on family news.
Juanita flew back to Harlingen scheduled to arrive about the time I was expected to arrive back in town from Nicaragua. My part of that coincidental travel didn't happen on time, but it was still good to get back together even as late as it became.
Trip to Nicaragua
Paul tagged along on Ben Butler's trip to meet the pastors and start preparing for the 2009 conference and outreaches.
We were joined at WOTC for the February SOWERS project by Bev and Larry Saug. It was their first SOWER project and they seemed to enjoy themselves and the work activities. After leaving the valley they visited a couple of other SOWER projects and met some other SOWER couples.
The SOWER report for the month read: Ladies sewed team flags for the Nicaragua crusades, helped in the kitchen and painted the outside kitchen. Men repaired ceilings, plumbing and windows and changed light fixtures at the staff motel. They also installed electrical services and wired two new buildings for the upcoming pastors' conference.
The Mexican pastors' conference April 14-18 will be in Aldama as it was last year. They expect even more people to attend than last year. The new buildings were a ladies shower house (24' x 60') and an outdoor kitchen (16' x 24').
