Meet "Stripes"

"Stripes" (kids here pronounce it "Estripes"), made a visit to Bible class at Manto de Gracia to tell kids about Holy Week and the death and resurrection of Jesus. He was a last minute fill in for the old stand-by "Eugenio". Turns out that Eugenio is stuck in a shed in Plano. A more serious problem, however, is that we originally picked the name Eugenio because it was so funky and easy to make fun of, but lo and behold we have a student named Eugenio enrolled this year and will tread a little softer.
