Lyndsey is quite adventurous. You see, most people come to El Paso and drive down, but there weren't any people coming or going during her travel dates, so she bravely took a bus from El Paso to Juarez to Chihuahua. More power to her. Tanya and I were about to leave when I got a a call from a man at the bus station who later passed the phone to her to let me know she had officially arrived in Chiwas. Later as Tanya and I drove to the bus station, I saw a text that read as follows, "Aky esta tu amiga linsey ella quiere que bengas por ella" (Written with correct Spanish grammar and spelling: "Aqui esta tu amiga Lyndsey ella quiere que vengas por ella"). Translation: Your friend Lyndsey is here and wants you to come get her.
Since Lyndsey had traveled literally all day on Saturday, she was somewhat exhausted, so we retired early on Saturday night. On Sunday, though, we hit the ground running. We went to church, which was wonderful as usual. After church we ate lunch at Italianisimo, had some delicious ice cream at Coldy's, went for a walk and hung out for a bit with my landlady, and then went to the Expogan, which is a big rodeo fair type thing-a-ma-jigger. We enjoyed walking around, eating, and generally goofing off together.

On Wednesday night at Bible study, we spoke about Mary Magdalene, and the wonderful way in which she pursued her Lord and loved Him to the very end. Lisa shared a quote about friendship that I just loved and feel like so adequately describes the friendships which the Lord has given me.
He says, "You haven't chosen one another, God has chosen you for one another."
I couldn't agree more.
