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

first day of school!! not everyone showed up, because i don't think they believed that we were actually going to start, even though we announced it. so here are the first through fourth graders with the teachers. there are another 22 kindergarters in the afternoon. notice the homemade desks and chalkboard.

God bless all of you who contributed financially and spiritually to the building of the school. it's a miracle that we began fundraising in april, broke ground in june, and began class on oct 5th.
