How to Make Colombian Tamales

If you read the recent newsletter, you read about Nohelly's new business making tamales. Tamales are a delicious traditional Colombian food. You won't be disappointed if you make a batch. They do take a lot of time and it may take you a while to search out a few of the ingredients needed. Often you can find them at Hispanic markets in big cities and sometimes as places like Wal-Mart if you have a large Hispanic population in you area.

Two Terrific Summer Interns

Right before my short trip up to the States for Lake James School of Missions, I had the privilege of receiving two interns here in Colombia. The first person to express interest was Sasha Gilson, a second cousin of mine, who is finishing up a Master’s degree in TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Language). She has inquired about coming down and teaching for the summer. We had actually been praying for this and I had written to other people and to schools that offer this program to no avail. Then one day, out of the blue, Sasha wrote and expressed her interest.
