Well we are home now. We got home at 10:38pm Saturday January 2, 2010. It was a nice drive home.....well it was long. We left the ranch at 7:36am Friday January 1,2010. Crossing the border wasn't as bad as we thought it would be. We waited in a line of cars on the bridge to the other side of the border for over an hour. We imagined the very worse to happen like they would take everything out of our van and do all kinds of things. But really all the official did was asked for all of our passports and through the windows matched the people up with the photos, asked us if we had alcohol in the van, and then waved us through. We all were given a small plant while we were in Mexico so we made a big deal about hiding the plants in a pot that we put under another pot, and for the 2 taller ones in a pair of rubber boots. It was refreshing just how easy it was. The Mexico blog that Dassi has faithfully been keeping up to date, has all the trip details and such. I can't even start to tell about the trip. It was a life changing experience, and I can't wait till I get to go back. Hopefully by the time I go down there I will have learned Spanish. I am going to start sort of saving for my next trip. But my next real adventure I am going to start working toward is graduating from high school in May, and starting my midwifery course in June. I am about to go on call for the births in the Village and a few outside births. Nicole said that I should get my certification as a midwife and move out there, because I would definitely be able to help down there. At this moment I am sure if I am called to live there permanently, and seeing that I have still have to graduate from high school I have plenty of time to find out what God has for me to do. I am hoping Mexico is just the first international trip for me. But I have really had it on my heart to be a gatehouse somewhere, so maybe that is what I am suppose to do with a trip to Mexico annually or something. But I have plenty of things I can fill my plate with until that time :-). God bless you.
