The only downer about Memoria on this particular morning was the fact that I got a sunburn on my neck/chest area...but not on my face...don't know how I managed that!
friends, also missionaries a part of Global Effect, who left for a furlough to California today. They are going back to have their baby boy! So Cynthia and I made beef enchiladas, with homemade tortillas and homemade sauce, along with refried beans and peanut butter cookies. Everything turned out delicious!
Funny thing... after cooking our enchiladas, beans, cookies, and guac. for a midday snack, we ended up going out for "street meat" with some friends! (Don't worry, we enjoyed the fruits of our labor the next night ;)) We went to a "new" place (for us) called Naseebs! We sat on the sidewalk, bought our own ketchup from a shop up the road, and people watched as the sun set! It was lots of fun! Then we went back to their house to play Nerts- a fun and fast-paced card game!Global Effect team ministering at a village church called El Shaddai. It was a beautiful morning, filled with worship, speaking into the lives of the congregation, and an awesome sermon by Ryan and translated by Francis! I seriously loved it.

Monster Cookies! I swapped out chocolate chips and M&M's for Snickers bars! I just chopped them into little pieces and they were DELISH! Everyone enjoyed them the next day!
Global Effect missionaries caravan-ed out there, and spent the day together! The house has a HUGE yard with an awesome pool. We had so much fun swimming and spending time together!
This is the B&B where we stayed! It was really nice.
This is what you see looking out from the back porch. It is paradise!
I was going to include everything in this one post, but I figured it was getting long enough! Part two of my 5-Day Weekend will come tomorrow! That will include the evening of Monday and Tuesday! I am seriously so blessed to be part of an organization that values rest! It was such refreshing time, growing relationships and having a ball!
Much Love, Allie
