Sunday Night, The Embassy, and Ps. Andy (June 26 pm - June 27)
Last night Sabi and I got a motokar (Jorge followed a bit later) to the church Nueva Vida pastored by Amerigo, who has quite a testimony: He'd been hit in the head by a huge rock or brick at a construction site which literally bashed in his head... Read more

What I've Been Up To
I don't Spark as much as I used to. One reason is because of all the advertisements that have to load before I can enter anything on one of the community boards, Another is that I spend a lot of time on Face Book, keeping up with family in dista... Read more

I have been asking the principal to hook me up with either a laptop or a desktop computer for Spanish class because I KNOW a lot of these kids are "writing-challenges" - whether from laziness, from difficulty seeing the board, or their hand hurt... Read more
How do you say DUH in Spanish?
It came about because I overheard the principal talking to a TA about the Spanish class - that they hadn't had a regular teacher. I mentioned that, while I'm not CERTIFIED, I HAVE taught Spanish in private schools. She knew I translated occasion... Read more

What I've Been Up To
I have plenty of computer access at school. But while I WOULD like to be more regular and faithful in Sparking, work-time is not the time to do it. No, what I have been doing is creating power points for the 8 students in my class, of a scientif... Read more
