Maddy & I both had mission training today.

Her training in Garden Valley, Texas & mine at our church...

I love how Teen Mania (the ministry she is with) has communicated so well with us. They started a Facebook page where they post pictures and updates of her trip. They also have a 24/7 parent communications line that we can call for any reason.

Last night they had a worship service. I got to chat with her a bit yesterday. She was excited that the campus had longhouses. That's where she will be sleeping until they leave for Mexico.

Today she went through personal evangelism training. I also got word that she does have her luggage. Whew. The FedEx tracking system shows that her wallet should be there in the morning... right on time. So that is very good.

I leave for El Salvador in about 3 weeks. We started our training today. A big part of what we will be doing is street dramas. We were assigned our roles & started rehearsing today. We also went over our itinerary. Good times. Now that Maddy is off and taken care of I was able to let my trip sink in a little more. Todays session got me really excited. It's going to be good.
