Happy new year, friends.
While the world around us swirls with resolutions, we’ve made one of our own: make this blog better.
Many of you know that Liesl, who has run this blog for the past few years, started her own blog almost a year ago. It’s called Fitness in the Kitchen (click here or hit the link on the bottom to check it out) and is filled with her passions – healthy food, butt-kicking fitness, and a few references to me, because well, I’d like to think I’m one of her passions. But her time spent creating the awesome Fitness in the Kitchen blog has also meant that this blog has had a few less posts than it used to.
So we’re shaking things up here. I, Pete, will be taking over this blog. I’ll be posting more – hopefully 3 or 4 times a month – and keeping you more in the loop regarding what our life out in the Sierra Madres is like.
Also, in the near future, we’ll be adding pages on our team and the people we work with here in Las Moras, and to really bring us into the current century, we’ll also be adding a Facebook group in the near future – Los Hypki en Las Moras , and you can keep touch with us via our new Twitter account – @LosHypki.
Living 45 miles from the nearest paved road isn’t somewhere I ever thought I’d be living, and living among an indigenous people group, far from our family and friends, isn’t something I ever thought I’d be doing.
It’s a far cry from the life I once imagined. But we believe it’s where God wants us. It’s fun, it’s challenging, it’s bitter and it’s sweet.
We learn something every day here in Las Moras, and hopefully, through this blog, you’ll be able to experience that with us.
Here’s to a full 2014. And for real, check out Fitness in the Kitchen. If nothing else, the workouts will get your heart pumping!
