Pardon the Hiatus

Three years is a long time but can pass quickly.   In one of my last posts I mentioned that Sister Olivia and I were looking for a house in Mexico for young women seeking to learn more about our Community and enter the process to become Missionary Servants of the Most Blessed Trinity.

We searched and searched. Most houses were too small, too expensive, too far from classes, too...  Finally Divine Providence took over.  Our brother community was moving their post-novitiate to Columbia and the house would be vacant.  They graciously offered us the use of the house – a ready-made formation house!  In January we will celebrate three years at Cenáculo Misionero San José (St. Joseph Missionary Cenacle).
We have been blessed to be able to offer retreats for women discerning their vocation, and we have been especially blessed to now have four wonderful young women in the formation process.  God is so good! 
It has been three years of learning the ropes of Mexico City, dealing with the maintenance of a large house, finding electricians and plumbers, getting our immigration documents, opening a bank account, etc. all in a new country and in our second language!

There probably could have been some really interesting blogs sharing some of these adventures, but with limited time something had to give, and unfortunately, it was the blog!

Hopefully, I can be more faithful to this blog and share more of our life here as well as the life of the Missionary Servants.
