long day

yesterday was a really long day, but i loved every second. i got up at 7am (which is 4am colorado time) and was busy out and about and working until almost 12am. armando, the l.d.p. specialist, has been so gracious to host me. he picked me up from the hotel in the morning and we went to the compassion d.r. country office. i felt like santa claus - i brought so many presents for peoples' sponsored children and even a few things for the staff. it was great to see friends at the office and reconnect.

armando had me call some of the students to remind them of the graduation on friday and confirm their attendance. you should have been there to see the entertainment that ensued from me calling students (in spanish of course.)

we also went to the academy where the 30 new l.d.p students are taking classes to prepare them to enter into l.d.p next month. we ran some errands for l.d.p. celebration, we went back to the office, we went to armando's church for wednesday night service, and then we had a really fun dinner out. i was exhausted by the time we got back to the hotel.

Thanks for keeping me posted on your whereabouts!!! Here's a request for you: please give Claudio a BIG hug (and little kiss) from our family. I'll deliver more hugs in January...but, for now - make sure he knows he's loved. Thanks!!! Have fun (like you aren't already!!!).
