B.A.B.E. by: Andrea Stephens

I am so excited to be able to begin a junior high and senior high bible study. Andrea Stephens was so sweet to donate and mail to Mexico books and bracelets! I know that this seems like PR, but if you have a teenage daughter or know one, I think that the book is great for her!

Fund Raiser

Every year the girls wear wedding dresses, many of which belong to their mother or sister, or the dress from the 15th birthday party in order to raise money for the school. (Everyone who enters has bought a ticket.) The girls model their dresses for all to see, and afterwards there are snacks. It was a busy, but very fun time. I was in "Julie mode" helping with hair, dresses, and cheering on girls before they went on stage.

Belize Travels

In order to renew our Mexican visas Noah and I made a five hour drive to Belize. It was a beautiful place, and we made many new friends. We ate the Belizean traditional rice and beans, and Mrs. June, who has a small restaurant in her home, made some delicious hot bread the Saturday morning that we were there.
