The Missions: San Francisco and San José

Unless the mission is oriented by charity, that is, unless it springs from a profound act of divine love, it risks being reduced to mere philanthropic and social activity...Consequently, being missionaries means loving God with all one's heart, even to the point, if necessary, of dying for him. - Pope Benedict XVI

on the way to pulio the other day, while crossing the river, esteban and i decided to do a little community service and build a bridge from one bank to a small island. after hefting the log and tossing it into the water and maneuvering it into place, we then buttressed it with rocks. we'll see how long it lasts...also pictured are annie the nurse and josefa the new catechist, as promised.
