Going to church...
Sometimes, I confess I do struggle with having to figure out what church to go to; however, I have gained a greater understanding of the Body of Christ and how each "building" of believers expresses who Christ is in the context of the body of believers.
I am grateful that we are One Body in Christ.
I'm sure today, I may not understand everything in the sermon for it will all be in Spanish, but I'm looking forward to worshiping with my brothers and sisters in Christ.

Classes began today
Colorado is beautiful as always and I saw the coolest sunset at Coors field watching the Rockies pummel the Tampa Bay Devilrays this past weekend.

Getting ready to go
Getting ready also entailed reading a couple of books on missions and movement building. By far the book, I've enjoyed the most is an autobiography of Martin Luther King, Jr. I've been fascinated how he was able to mobilize a group of people and help everyone stay focused on the real issues and not side issues.
Not sure, I'm totally ready for this time of training. Pray that the Lord would prepare me physically, emotionally, and spiritually to minister and come alongside of our leaders.

Friends from out of town
Mr. Taylor, it is hard for me to still call him Matt, was my middle school band teacher. I babysat their kids periodically (who are all now in college).
It will be good to catch up with them and hear how they enjoy Tennessee. More than anything, it is just nice to have visitors that have known you throughout different stages in life.
There are 3 die and all you do is roll them for a specific number. So round one, you are trying to rolls "1's" until someone hits the score of 21 times of getting that number. Round two, you want "2's" ... etc.
The biggest moment of the game is when all 3 die rolled have the number of the round... so 3 "1's" and you automatically get 21 points and everyone yells, "BUNKO!"
At the end of the game there are lots of prizes. I did not get any but I will say I know more people as a result of playing and it was fun.

Bunko and the Portland Rose Festival
In other news, I get to experience the Rose Festival this year. This is something that I keep hearing about all year long from residents here; however, last year I was on my way to San Diego so I missed it.
The next two weeks, I'll have plenty of opportunity to experience the events that I choose to go to. This weekend, I think I'm going to check out the Starlight parade.
