Going away party

Martha and I had our going away party with family, it was great to see so many come out (60-70) family members! We had some much food and games for the kids. I was able to show my family the video of our family history on a big screen TV in the garage that I have been working on for some months and everyone was amazed about our family that they didn't know about.

We saw at the party cousins we had not seen for a long time and it was great to catch up on what's going on in their lives. We got to share also of what we have been doing in Germany and share of the great things the Lord has done.

We now are redeeming the time here and soon be boarding the plane back to Herborn!

One last trip to Mexico

Martha and I had made contact with some of her relatives in Mexico last time we were there and found out that there were many that desired to see her.

So we made plans to return and visit them, then it turned into a family reunion! As Martha's brother and wife plus two of her sister came along with us.

We flew into Gaudalajare and drove 250km to a town called Juchipila in the State of Zacateca.

We went to the old reuins of the adobe house Martha' father was born in and stop in the little town where he went to church and school.

We ended up in the town where many in this village were related to Martha family and had a fiesta there with great food and Mariachi's.

We made connection to family members that we never knew! What a blessing the trip has been!

Opa baby sitting day

My daughter wanted to take some time to go shopping and asked if Opa would watch the kids and I wanted to bless her with a little free time with no stress...so I took them to the park.

There at the park was a school class with kids playing but my grandchildren were more interested in the yellow school bus than the kids...they wanted to ride home on the bus!! So to distract them I bought them ice cream!!
