There was a kid that came to the house last week wanting help with his English homework. His name is Ami and he goes to the church a few blocks from ours. He seems like a pretty smart little guy...Nicole has started helping him a few times a week here at the house, and he always has something very intelligent to say. 
Last week, he mentioned that he was going to be leading part of the service at his church and he invited Nicole and my mom. I said from the beginning that I was not going to go. I don't know why really because we go to the cathedrals all the time, but this one just game me the heebie jeebies. 
Well obviously Nicole couldn't go by herself, Sister Mom is in the US, and El Pastor was conveniently sick. :D Long story short, (trust me, it gets very gory) me and Mother Teresa went to church. 

There's something special about walking down the street then suddenly seeing a bunch of cows and bulls and sheep running towards you...that feeling of panic...unexplainable :P

The white building is the church. Their organization is called Luz del Mundo. (Light of the World). 
We call it the church with the legs on top of it. 

Time to go inside....
Nicole--"Wait, wait I can't find my contact..." Haha :)

So after Nicole located her contact that was lost in her eyeball, we made our grand entrance. 
We scooted in the back pew and what do ya know...We sat right next to Ami's mom. :)
As soon as we sat down, she leaned forward and whispered something to the lady in front of her. 
The whole row of women started digging in their purses, then 2 veils were passed back and handed to us. 
"Alrighty girls, lets all open our Bibles to I Corinthians, chapter 11..."
Heh heh...NO I did NOT put it on! It didn't match my outfit... :D

That's Ami behind the pulpit. 
(See how the women sit on one side and the men on the other).

Kneeling to pray. 
(No, we didn't do that either...the nice part though, is that we did not get thrown into the fiery furnace).

Nicole and Ami

They sold food after church and Ami's mom sent us home with some tostadas. 
It didn't completely make up for the hard pews and dead service, but hey...
Nicole has a thing for Ami and wants to try to win him. 
So we'll see what happens!
