On Friday, the day we picked her up from the airport turned out to be an interesting day. As we were ready to leave for Guadalajara, we got out to the truck where we realize we had a flat tire. So I changed it out only to find the spare was flat as well. The spare had not been used in some time so after getting it pumped up with air, we finally made it on the road. We were very happy to have time to talk with Willa after picking her up. We had the whole ride home (which is 2 1/2 hours) to catch up on things. When we got to the final curves that is about 30 minutes of constant curves between the mountains, the traffic came to a complete stop. We asked police officer who had his lights on and had parked on the shoulder what was happening. He said that there had been an accident with a truck that had spilled it's freight on the road. He said 5 minutes would be all that was needed to clean it up. An hour and a half later we finally started moving again. As we passed the accident site, we saw men still shoveling the sand that was still covering one side of the highway. It is always an adventure here. You never know what may happen.
The following days we had various meetings with her as well as with the other missionaries here in Autlan. It was a good time to hear of what else God is doing here in Autlan. We said our goodbyes yesterday as she headed back to Tecate. It was a blessing to have her here.
On a different note, we are now dealing with colds. Jessie as well as Lilly are both struggling through coughing and not feeling very good. Jessie is doing better but still is on the mend. Our hope is that this will pass quickly as things get more and more busy through the holiday season. Pray for us especially the rest of us who are yet to get sick.
