Just wanted to add that our visit with Amber, Darwin and rosie was wonderful! it is so great to have friends here in Honduras that understand one another and can share not only their life in ministry but their life in Christ as well. the stuggles and triumphs in the life of a missionary are sometimes unique to their situation and location and God has blessed me with close friends who go through what I go through a lot of times.
Most days for Santi and I are similar...we get up, eat, get dressed adn ready for the day which sometimes include a trip to town to get food. Sometimes there is cleaning and laundry to be done, and of course always meal prep and clean-up. Santi has three baby videos that he hasn't gotten sick of yet and only 8 books but he is happy with those too. yesterday we made a collage for daddy as a surprise and it is now the only wall decor we have.
today we enjoyed a trip into town to buy the five gallon pure water jugs, and beto treated us to ice cream! santi was devouring his when g.ma janice called, the highlight of our day.
and being rainy season it has rained a lot today! with lots of thunder.
beto went to play soccer with some men from the alcoholic rehab center and youth from church. yesterday he helped our pastor repair his broken car window. our chickens are well although i feel bad that they are enclosed in the shack. beto doesn't want them to escape the yard or eat poop in the grass. at night we have animals getting into our trash that's left on the ground b/c we didn't have time to burn it all before the rain came.
Beto is really enjoying his work here, being able to do more of what he enjoys: gardening and carpentry.
Seems like santi is learning at least one new word a day. today he told us many times about the "balloon popping" incident yesterday. I found a balloon in some of the office supplies the former missionaries left. After getting a lot of use out of it it popped(died). santi told us all day today"moon pop" and makes the pop sound with his lips like in that sound "lollipop".
he also loves to play with his blocks, go into "his" cubbard(where i keep unbreakable things in the kitchen), and help daddy feed the chickens and do yard work.
