You will have noticed that I have not exactly been terribly present of late. The truth is that I went to Brazil to see my sister and got back late on Monday. I only had sporadic access to the very poor internet service available there.
On Friday, I leave for an 8-day immersion experience in El Salvador. I may or may not be able to get online to respond to your comments. I am trusting in your patience and kindness. Know that if I can communicate with you, I will.
Please pray for the success of this venture. On Wednesday, the State Department issued a travel warning for El Salvador and five of our members decided to opt out of the experience.
