Day four, first day of vbs.
vbs, or vacation bible school, pronounced “veb-bis” is really what we bring down to mexico. some other teams bring work projects like building houses but we bring vbs. well moday was whites day, and that was kelly and katie’s group. they did that one story about the son that gets his half of the money from his dad and then goes and squanders it and comes back and the father sees him far off and throws this big party for him and his brother is upset that he doens’t even get a goat. yah, it know the name for the parable, but i don’t know how to spell it and it was just too much effort to go and look it up. the drama we took kids and ‘controlled’ them and made them act the parable out. i was the father. lots of talking. lots of hand gestures. the crafts were making angel wings, i don’t know how that quite fit in, i wasn’t paying attention.
after vbs, we went to pastor’s house again, but much more relaxed for me. not many kids, but we went around his village and passed out flyers to a screening of the ‘the passion’. i gave a lot of piggy back rides to some girls that were a little to big to give piggy back rides to. they were heavy.
the passion went well, it isn’t that fun of a movie to watch, but it is really well done. i could read and understand most of the subtitles. after that some people went to get pray and our interpreter was got drunk in the spirit, but i didn’t know. on the ride home i asked her a normal question, and she looks at me and says my hat looks funny, and proceeds to laugh at it. crazy God. making people go crazy.
well we got back to the tents and we went to sleep.

    That’s funny . . . it’s a restaurant that – well, now that I think about it, it’s very southern (has a country store in it and serves country food, if there is such a thing) and it is very popular around here. It’s a big chain, and I didn’t realize it wasn’t nation-wide. Or maybe you’ve just never heard of it.
