While at the mall to see Toy Story 3 a few days ago, Casa Shalom's small kids got a chance to ride a carousel for the first time! Left - the little kids and Mr. Bird from the Minnesota missions team, wait for their chance to ride the carousel.
Yuliza loved her white horsey.
Cesar and Raquel were all smiles.
Little Josue had a blast.
Anggie waves to everyone watching her

BIG Casa Shalom news: tomorrow morning at 4 a.m., we are boarding a bus headed for Peten, Guatemala to see the Mayan ruins at Tikal with a bunch of the Casa Shalom kids! This trip is a reward for those who excelled in their classes during this semester of school. The team from Life Church is providing this amazing trip..., and we can't wait to share this with them. We will return late Thursday, to be praying for all of us who are traveling! (Look for Tikal on the map above, close to the northern border with Mexico)

Much thanks to Mr. Anderson for providing the pizza, and thanks to the team from Minnesota, who helped serve. The Minnesota group will spend the next few days painting in the gymnasium and in the school. Watch for photos!
