Every morning starting yesterday we do a garage sale to gain support for a lady in the church. Her son was accused and he is probably going to jail so we are raising support for the lawyer. We are selling clothing and other junk. It's pretty fun doing all that. We also make hamburgers, hot-dogs and corn dogs at night.
Also pray for my youth group leader David Gomez. He is in Uruguay now. Pray that he could fit in there and that he could learn about that culture.
Here i have some pics.

Here in Mexico Catholicism is the main religion. Every year all the real believers walk up to the Basilica of Guadalupe and they pray for their needs. The virgin of Guadalupe is like the goddess here. Its really sad that all these people are lost and don't know the truth. Some people go and give water and oranges to the people that walk all the way to the basilica and they sleep there.

I know I'm doing this post little late. Last Saturday at the community center we put a big tent up and Tiffany and Tina were in charge. It was really fun. We had a lot of American dishes, good food. But the best part was Tiffany's ice tea, it was really good. We played football and street hockey, it was fun. I am waiting to hear from David Gómez. He should be in Uruguay now

Hi, I'm going to talk about my youth group leader David Gómez. He is going to Uruguay Wednesday night, for 2 years. We gave him a good bye party at the church yesterday, we are going to miss him. Well, I asked my dad about the possibilities of going to visit him in Uruguay, I hope I can go and visit him down there in Uruguay sometime.

Hi today I’m going to talk about piracy. If you don't know what piracy is, it’s a copy of the original movie, music and video games, and this is illegal. A lot of people here in Mexico don't even have one original movie, it’s all pirated. These movies come in a little bag and if you're lucky in a hard box. You can get these movies for 1 dollar or less.
The better quality is clone, and this is the digital copy of the original. But a pirated movie is videoed in a movie theater. This is why Blockbuster is running out of business.
Here I have a picture of a big video game place, but is all pirated.
And there are movies and games in English.

One of them, Isaac, was hit by the handle of a pistol. He lost about $45. Another guy in the church, Allan, was threatened by someone in a car and the guy acted like he had a pistol in the back of his shirt, and told the guy in the church not to say anything or he’d get in big trouble. He wasn´t robbed, but it was scary.
Another man, Jorge, was mugged, and he only had about $2. The robber wanted more. He told the robber that he didn’t have any more money and he said, “In the name of Jesus, LEAVE! And he did. The last guy to have a problem last week is Fabian. This is my favorite story. He was in a restaurant eating and someone opened a door to the outside. His brother asked the guy to close the door because it was cold outside, but the other guy didn’t want to. He said he would close it whenever he wanted to. This started an argument which ended in a fight. 10 guys against Fabian and his brother.
So…it was an interesting week here in Ixtapaluca!

I'm going to talk about these interesting dogs called xoloescuincles. They are pretty ugly dogs. They are really expensive. A lot of rich people have these dogs. They don't like the sun. They are always in shade because these dogs don't have fur and the sun burns them. These dogs are in danger of extinction. Also these dogs are Mexican natives well these dogs were really appreciated by all the Indian tribes. These Dogs where found in the Bering Strait. These dogs where really faithful with their owners, and used to warm up their feet during winter.

So...in the following blog entries, you'll hopefully get a taste of what life in the Mexico City metro area is like for a 13 year old. With all the good, bad and ugly!
