Tonka bedroom that I just decorated. I'm so sad about that!!!
On Saturday morning we made a visit to the village of Muyurco. It was the first time for the boys and me to go. David did not really give me many details about the trip there and he really held out on saying what a fun adventure it was (as you will see from the photos below).
the mountain road to the village of Muyurco
It's about a 40 minute car ride up the mountain and then a 15 minute hike to get to the house where we were going.
my little guys love riding in the mountains!
Once arriving in the village we had to drive down a creek to get to the spot where we needed to leave our vehicle. We then exited the car and began our hike. The trail we took had us cross back and forth over that creek three more times before arriving at the house. The trail was mostly flat so the boys were both able to hike it all by themselves. That was a blessing and will make it very easy for us to all be able to return again in the future.

We had a great visit in the home and just felt very warm and welcomed. Our kids played together like they had known each other for years. I look forward to getting a chance to work in this village and meet other families that live there.

We stopped on the way back down the mountain to take a family photo and to enjoy the beautiful views.
That afternoon after naptime Cruz helped me bake some chocolate chip cookies.
Once the cookies were cooled the boys enjoyed eating them from the comfort of their inflatable pool, ha.
We had BBQ chicken, fettuccine alfredo, and black beans for supper and then watched "All Dogs Go To Heaven" before calling it a night.
Sunday morning David led Bible study in the village of Nearar and then we spent the afternoon watching football.
That evening we made a visit to the Chinese restaurant for supper and finished watching the Colts vs. Broncos game on their television.
So there you have it- a small glimpse into the life of a normal missionary family. It's a fun life and one that I have to stop regularly and thank God for allowing me to live.
