Well i guess not too much has happened recently. Yesterday we went up the volcano Telica again. Wow. I dont think il ever go up there again. Its a really tuff walk. It took us about 3 hrs. But its worth it when you get to the top. Today, delmars parents come in, and they are all planning to stay at our house. His mom n dad n sister n brother, so ya, our house will be a little full. Im sure ima get in some yankee cookn as well, but im sure it will be really good. Marty clemmer was just here with a friend and they left today as well. I also recently got to experience a 15th birthday party. It was a girl that we bring to church a lot. They reall celebrate the girls 15th birthdays. It was almost like a wedding, with the music, procession, the way they dressed. wow. But it was a cool experience. anyway, i think that pretty much explains the pictures..Joel

Well time continues to pass fairly fast round here. Mom and Dad came for a week and the cousin thomas came for a week and now its been like a week n a half since he left. Next week is going to be a full week. We are having a bible school here in leon. It is going to be for 3 days. People from Waslala and Jinotega are coming. I think we are expecting about 30 people. Pablo Yoder and Mark Gingerich from Guatemala are 2 of the speakers. I think it will be interesting, but a lil stressful being that we dont have very much room to house 30 extra people. It will go from tuesday to Thursday and then on friday, i think we are going to take a trip with everybody to the volcano or something like that. Today we have the monthly youth night out in La Palmerita that we go to. I enjoy that. We normaly play soccer, softball or some game like that, then sing and have hot dogs. its starting to get really dry. It hasnt rained in like 2 or 3 weeks, but the good thing is, its nice and cool. November and December are the coolest months of the year, and its still not to fairly dry yet. Believe it or not, i wake up and put on a longsleeve tshirt. It gets like to 65 or so, so i say thats chilly enough. I kinda stay busy studying. Lastnight i had the topic again, and i always teach the childrens class on tuesday nights. Soon im going ot have to let sister Carmen take over:) I rekn thats all for now...
