Let the last week of my mission in Mexico begin! I want to share a haiku I made this morning and leave the rest for seeing each of you all at home to talk in-person.

Don’t leave with such haste,

Feet that have walked many miles;

But don’t you turn back.

Tighten the laces

On new shoes you’ve been given

To see those faces.

Ask the right questions;

When you fall and scar, get up;

Watch your step always – 

From here on, that God

Who has purified your heart

Requires yet more.

But,Don’t leave with such haste,

Feet that have walked many miles;

And don’t you turn back.


Goodbye, beloved Mexico. See you soon.
