Here are a few pictures from this past Sunday! We had a really good Sunday school class and a good church service afterwards! Elder Wakefield preached for us and also sang a song-- which is always a treat. Our people love and respect "Anciano Glenn" (Elder Glenn). Here in Mexico wee hardly refer to someone with their last name... I only know about two last names of families in our whole church!!
Sara, Ailyn, and Paulina cutting out their crafts. It was the lesson on Pentecost Sunday so the craft was a flame headband.
Eliu, Marcos, Eddy, and Fabian
Bethany's little bus girls were so excited and begged to have their hair done by her!
Bro. Valentin (aka Valval haha) taught the lesson, acting as a reporter asking the confused crowd questions about what was going on in Jerusalem on the Day of Pentecost.
^Below, Eddy is demonstrating the cool way to wear your flame hahaha^
Pastor brought out the white board and wrote down names of people who needed the Holy Ghost. First he asked the kids there who wanted the Holy Ghost! Almost everyone said that they wanted the Holy Ghost and a few that already had received it still asked for their name to be added to the list because they wanted it again. Then the kids called out names of their moms and dads, aunt, uncles, friends, etc. We then got together and prayed for each kid and each name on the board.
For a while now we've really been focusing on encouraging the kids to pray and seek the Holy Ghost in our Sunday school prayer times. While we have had adults pray through during these times, we have yet to have a kid get the Holy Ghost in Sunday school! Many of our children don't come to the second service, so this is their only time to seek God. Please keep our kids in your prayers! We need a move of God in our Sunday school class!
In the second service I got a very very rare break from praise singing, for lack of a fourth mic. Dad, if you're reading this, we need another mic, and the pulpit one repaired! Hahaha.
Our little kids choir! Ailyn sang her first solo and she did sooo good! Maybe we can put up the recording somewhere on the sidebar! Be on the lookout for that. :)
Grandpa preached on knowing who the enemy is! The devil!
And oolala after service we had our weekly "talento" made by yours truly! Talento is where someone in the church fixes a meal or some food to sell after service to raise funds for the church. (Is there a word for this in English?) Its always a nice time of eating delicious food and fellowshipping with the church family.
I made yummy American corn dogs. This was a new foreign food for our people, and everyone except for 2 people LOVED them. Forget the haters! Hahaha.
Between all the people just in this picture, 16 corn dogs were eaten. :)) They were so gooood.
Here's the recipe I use: http://allrecipes.com/recipe/35149/corn-dogs/
Definitely let the batter chill for an hour or so in the fridge before coating the hotdogs! The only change I made was to finely blend up a can of jalapenos with the milk before adding it to the batter. Food is not appealing to our folks here if it doesn't have some kick! If you like a little spice, this makes them even more delicious!
