The last time you heard from us it was only our first day of serving, and here we are recapping our fourth day of service and feeling nostalgic about our last. The past few days we have worked in the garden, served in the kitchen, soul friend-ed in the court yard, and rode along on outreach. Making this service trip special was the spiritual and mental work that has impacted our lives as much as we hope to have impacted the lives of others.

Tuesday night Ashley whipped up chicken cutlets, mashed potatoes, corn, and a side serving of our guest visitor Sister Madeline, another Ursuline sister from San Antonio. Wednesday evening we explored the Mexican Market Place, and ate at the tourist attraction: Mi Tierra. The market was highly enjoyed by all, as we all came home with goodies. For some it was the first time experiencing authentic Mexican food, and it was tasty. Later in the evening a few adventurous souls headed to the River Walk, and floated and boated on the world famous boating tours. The string lights overhead accompanied by the comical commentary from our tour guide made the experience one of a kind.

Till next time…
