As Jessie and I were talking about it afterwards. It struck us that even though we were done with this little project after about 2 1/2 hours, we wondered how would something like this effect a young man like Herman. He is an average youth who needs love and attention. This coming month, he turns 17. I have not totally thought through what I want to do for him. But there is something about someone taking the time to celebrate you. I am blessed to be a part of what God is doing in the life of Herman. I have heard him repeat things that I have said in the past, when I thought he wasn't listening. We never know what people will remember about the things we say. I just hope and pray that God would use me to bring people to the truth.
On Saturday, we went to a youth event. We went as a family to a different part of town and played volleyball. After playing volleyball, a few different youth from our church as well as a few others did the Lifehouse drama called "Everything". There was short message about the skit.It was good time to connect with some new people.
So when we got done with the event we went as a family to eat some hotdogs. Below I have posted a photo of what a hotdog is like here. There are hotdog stands all over Autlan which are open only at night. As you can see it is not an ordinary hotdog. It is first wrapped in bacon then smothered with sauteed onions, peppers, and mushrooms. Then you add ketchup, mustard, mayo and salsa. By the end you can't see the hotdog but it sure it good. We only eat them on special occasions.
I invite you to come on down and see for yourself how good they are!
