Milk Cartons

Just checking in today.  I am headed out to another cooking class and will take many pictures.  This class is done by an Italian lady at her home and we will be making pizzas today.  I love pizza so this is going to be good.

Some of you may have heard about the fires here over on the coast at Valparaiso.  It happened pretty soon after the big earthquake up north so Chile had a lot happen at once.  Anyway, the fires spread quickly and they were on a hill so they destroyed around 3,000 homes.  Our church is collecting empty milk cartons to send over there which I thought was strange.  Then one of the Chilean members showed us why.  They take a carton and when it’s opened it is used for their walls and roofs.  The material it is made of can be used for these purposes.  I was so surprised but for these type of homes it works well.

Makes you thankful for our homes!

The other pictures I have today are of friends from church.  After church, we walk over to the food court at the mall and visit with each other.  Last Sunday they had music playing outside so some of us went out there to listen for a while.  It was a beautiful day.  It is now in the 50’s and 60’s during the day so we have to dress accordingly.
