The flu has caused many small changes to life in Mexico in the last week and a half. Many people of nearly all professions are worried and have been wearing surgical masks when they go out of their homes. But while many businesses, all schools, most government offices were closed in the Mexican government's attempt to stop the new flu strain from spreading, seminary classes continued almost normally here in Torreon. Our only concession to the flu scare was to start classes an hour late so the students didn't have to take the city buses during rush hour when they would be crowded. God has been good to us, so far no flu, and not even any confirmed cases here in Torreon yet.
