I’m excited that the time is so close. Things look very good here. Joseph and I got into Celaya on Friday night. It’s been great seeing people here. The church is growing and doing very well through His grace.
On Saturday, a rented bus will be waiting at the airport, as will Joseph and I. We’ll have snacks and drinks in the bus. We’ll go to Celaya, which by bus is 75 minutes. We should get there before 3:00. The people of the church are preparing lunch for us. It should be a great time, and the food will be safe. We’ve never had problems.
We’ll have a time to talk and share with the believers there. We hope to leave by 5:00 and get to the camp in the same rented bus by 7:30. The bus has to park about two miles or so from the camp because the road is so bad the last two miles or so. It’s passable for cars, but not buses. The camp people will pick us up in trucks. We’ll eat dinner there. All the meals will be very safe there; they are very used to cooking for gringos, though it may be a little spicy.
Richard Musgrave should send us a list of who we are staying with tomorrow.
Sunday we’ll have a service together with the Musgrave’s and 7-8 counselors. We’ll also have an organizational meeting with those there.
You do not need to bring pillows or sleeping bags. You do need to bring towels and a bar of soap, but not toilet paper. You will want to wear sandals when bathing.
The weather here is very warm for this season in Celaya, but very pleasant at the camp without rain, in the low 70’s. However, it could rain all week all the time and be cold. It would be wise to bring some type of rain boots if you can. DO NOT FORGET SUNBLOCK, PLEASE.
See you soon. Alan
