About this title

Synopsis:

Previous trips to Mexico had provided the author with wonderful relaxation and a toasty-brown tan but it was her first mission trip to "the Colonia" that most affected her. At initial glance, the settlement in the industrial city of Reynosa had a gray hue. Everywhere she looked, at the dusty-rutted roads, piles of gravel, and stacked concrete blocks, it was so gray. As she worked, ate, sang and laughed alongside other volunteers and Mexican families though the true colors of the Colonia came into view.

About the Author:

Pat McCartney Lewis is pursuing a degree in elementary education after over 20 years in the adult education field. She is the eldest daughter of a retired army officer and attorney. Raised in the military, Pat had the opportunity to live in many interesting places to include Hawai?i and Mannheim, Germany. Pat is a transplanted Hoosier (Indiana resident) since 1985. She and her husband of 25 years are the proud parents of two sons who currently attend, or will attend, Ball State University. Pat and her family are very involved in their church?s activities in historic Irvington (Indianapolis) and have a great circle of friends as a result. They are all local sports enthusiasts and Pat has participated in the Indianapolis 500 Festival Mini-Marathon. She and her husband are also scheduled to ride the Hilly-Hundred (100 miles of bicycling on the scenic hills of southern Indiana) in 2009, the year she turns 50.One of Pat?s favorite quotes is a Swedish proverb: ?Fear less; hope more, eat less; chew more, whine less; breathe more, hate less; love more, and all good things are yours.?
