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

vacation is over.

we now have a military transport vehicle, a school bus, and a tractor. i'll take some pictures as soon as i unpack my camera. the tractor's fuel pump broke. so, the thing sits in the middle of a half-plowed field waiting for the new pump to arrive from the capital.

construction on the school has finally been completed, and it looks great. picture on the way.

i have alot to write but really nothing to say except that, as with any parish, activities crank up in september, and with two parishes, well, there is plenty to keep us occupied. more later as we get things organized.

but, i'm back alive and had a wonderful time visiting my family.
