Maybe this is absolutely horrible, but the census papers sat on the table for a looooong time and I am pretty sure that no one from the Mountain ever filled them out. Thus the US has no record of me.
However, those people that take the census came around to Gabriel House and Maggie (who works in the office keeping GH running) called me in to answer the questions. Born in the US, Christian (had to give my Mexican church home for the sake of understanding), no not married, no children. Maggie laughed at the last one and corrected me. All the ones here! That makes 34 🙂
Thus, I am now accounted for not by the US but by the Mexican census.
On a different note, Hilary leaves tomorrow, so she read with us tonight. She is definitely the teacher! She does such a good job. And then we followed praying as ususal. And the boys wanted to pray for her. So we circled up and just like family gave thanks to God for her and prayed her off to the next chapter. Family time is amazing. Truly, truly amazing. And the hearts of these boys are even better.
