A few weeks ago Claudia shot an announcement video with some of our other middle school students. She did so great! Enjoy!

Last week we wrapped up a 4-week series called Unlikely. During the final week we had several of our adult leaders share and also heard from Cody, one of our middle schoolers, about his life and desire to allow God to use Him to make an impact in his school.
I just finished reading Justification – a very excellent, historical, biblical look at God’s plan for the world and how Paul understood and communicated that plan in his writings! Fascinating and refreshing!
Yesterday was Adriana’s birthday, so we took her to Los Angeles. We spent a few hours on Olvera Street which was exactly like being in Mexico. We enjoyed watching some performers in the plaza, browsing the market, and having a nice lunch. We had some Mariachis serenade her with “Happy Birthday” and some other romantic songs. We also drove to West Hollywood and enjoyed walking Rodeo Drive. Back in the desert we stopped on El Paseo and had a nice dinner together. A great day!
The other night we took a night drive up the mountain on Route 74, a part of the Pines to Palms Scenic Byway, to view the Coachella Valley at night. It was very pretty (like overlooking Los Angeles (minus the big buildings). We forgot our good camera, so the images aren’t that great. I lightened the photo a bit (pic #2) so you can see the smaller mountains in the foreground. Next time we go up I’ll get better pics.
