Mission Update

Well, we've been hitting the streets for two days. Here are a few pics of our adventures. So what exactly do we do? Daddy and I usually go out in the morning & again in the afternoon. Yesterday, we went out in the morning with Monica and Maria. They were extremely enthusiastic and loved knocking on the doors. We ducked out in the afternoon to take naps in our van!

Today, we went out in the morning with Maria (Monica stayed behind to help with the little kids) and in the afternoon with two other young girls who wanted to be out in the falling snow. Yesterday we had gorgeous sunny weather, but today we were knocking on doors and getting snowed on.:(

We've been leaving Molly and Lucas behind at the parish to do kid's activities. Gabe went out with us in the stroller yesterday morning, but today we left him behind because of the weather.

As far as reception, we've had a lot of people who aren't home, others who do open their doors to talk to us, and quite a few who are members of the parish where we are working so they are warm and friendly. There's always the occassional grumpy person who doesn't want to be bothered, but for every one of those there are so many more receptive, smiling faces.

It's been a great way to live these days before Easter.

Here's a cute quip from Molly: "I'm not going to complain because I'm on a mission!"
