Happenings as of late

We haven’t updated the blog for a while with pictures of ourselves, so here you go!

We continue to meet with a group of Anabaptist youth that we planned the youth convention with. We are studying the book, The Naked Anabaptist and after each chapter we do an “action” to symbolize an Anabaptist conviction. For this chapter we chose to do a potluck meal followed by footwashing.

As you can see, the footwashing service was not so “solemn” 🙂

We had fun running a 5k to raise money for breast cancer research. It was a night run and we ran with some fellow MCCers!

Cassie, Kevin, Marisa, Adam, and David

We slipped away for a weekend in Granada where we enjoyed relaxing by a beautiful pool!

We had our church youth group gathering at our house. About 30 adults and 10 kids came!

Fun games! (we broke one of the chairs we rented)

Dishing up the food. There was a huge box full of tajadas (fried plantain chips)!

Enjoying our tajadas con queso

We also celebrated an early Thanksgiving with our MCC Nicaragua team. We are so blessed to be surrounded by a great community of fellow service workers!

Adam’s contribution this year – spicy green beans. They were quite the hit!

The delicious spread!

Dinner was followed by a turkey piñata! In Nicaragua you have to “bailar the piñata” which means you have to dance before they let you take a whack at it. This might be why we look weird in these pictures:)
