august in la esperanza

santi 'walking' the rooster

where'd he go? i don't know!

"you want some cake?"

happy to help

our beautiful orchids in the backyard
life actually has been very enjoyable here in honduras these past five weeks. Santi can now say "see ya!" and loves to tickle us when we least expect it. too bad we taught him that the armpits are ticklish!
I am happy to be at home with Santi, taking walks, reading books, etc.
Beto has been very involved. He preached last Sunday, on tuesday he led the prayer service at church and Wednesday he taught the youth home bible study. he gives a lot of rides and has constructed a wooden bed for a toddler at church and a ceramic top table for another sister at church who had none. At home he's planted tomatoes and constructed a drainage system for the rain to go into the tank since the city has shut off our water twice now in the last week. he's really fixed up the garden and of course tends to the chickens, which i refuse to touch. he built them a nice little shack. he also goes up to the alcoholic center about three times a week at least to give Bible studies or just help out where needed, moving water buckets, etc.
we can't believe it's already more than half way over, august! we are praying a lot about our future here in Honduras, or if it be elsewhere. We'd appreciate your prayers for God's guidance and clarity. thanks and blessings to all our readers
