Ole! A Mexican Fiesta

For the last two weeks we have been studying Mexico and Central America.  We finished off our study with a Mexican Fiesta.  This included a homemade pinata, Mexico Flamenco flowers, yarn art and handmade tortillas.  El tiempo era excelente.  Quiero hacerlo otra vez.

Read of the Week:
Tortured For Christ by
Richard Wurmbrand - "After years of imprisonment and solitary confinement, enduring inhumane torture, Richard Wurmbrand emerges with a powerful testimony of courageous faith. Even today, believers are suffering and dying for Christ, yet their faith will not falter under the most unthinkable persecutions. In this stirring account, Wurmbrand (founder of The Voice of the Martyrs) encourages us to remember those in chains and equips us to help our persecuted brothers and sisters in Christ around the world."
Find of the Week:
- Amazing Historical Videos on a huge array of subjects.  These are great for young and old. 

Scripture of the Week: 
"Obviously, I’m not trying to win the approval of people, but of God. If pleasing people were my goal, I would not be Christ’s servant."
- Galatians 1:10

"We cannot hold a torch to light another's path without brightening our own."  ~Ben Sweetland
