Jeanette, the Canadien woman who owns the hotel we stayed at, is a character! She kept us entertained with stories the whole time. This is her pet monkey, Shawnee. I always wanted a pet monkey, but now I am not so sure :) She could get kind of crazy. And then there was the biting...
Neil in front of the plumbing he spent the week putting in at Ninos de la Luz.
Phil putting together some bookshelves.
Precious foot prints.
Phil and Tracy with Jesús, the child that they support at Ninos.
This is Neil when he thinks the bus is about to roll over him while he is cranking the busted tire back under the bus.
This is him when he realizes how dirty his hands are.
So, fun had by all. We got home last night and hit the ground running. Keith Keller, the director of Epedition237 (the group we are going to Belgium with AND our old youth pastor) is in town with his family and had a shindig at my parent's house. It was so good to see the Kellers and all of the people that came from TBC.
Something else fun is that while we were gone, my parents had new carpet and linoleum put in the rent house!!! It is so amazing. We are so happy to be living so close to our families. In fact, as I write this I am sitting in my parent's kitchen, a place we have started calling "The Café," because we come here for internet and food daily :) Life is good.
Love you all! Megan
Yesterday we arrived in Honduras for our 2-week stay at Rhonda's. We are so excited for this time to relax, recharge, prepare for the future.... and play with loads of cute kids! :)
Rhonda Jackson used to attend our church in Tomball and began Destino del Reino outside of Siguatepeque, Honduras. It is a children's home/school/church/anything else you can think of.
When we got to the airport yesterday, we had to wait for several hours for the bus. Not a problem, for we found something we been dreaming about since our last visit here: Del Frutal- the best pineapple drink you have ever experienced.
We joined up with a team visiting from West Acres Baptist in Georgia, and hopped on the Destino bus for the 2 hour trip to Siguatepeque. The folks in the group are great and we are looking forward spending time with them while they are here this week.
Here is Clay with Jacky, the most recent addition to the children's home.
We are SO glad to be able to spend this time with sweet Rhonda. We had a great talk with her over coffee this morning.
The kids have seen so many cameras in their lives Clay thought is was time to teach THEM how to shoot video.
This is Anna. She was abandoned in a field at birth and brought to Destino right after. God has some great things in store for this precious little one.
It doesn't take Clay long to make friends :)
We weren't expecting to have internet, so we are so happy to be able to update you all as we are here! Be checking back!
Enjoy your summer weeks and be seeking the Lord!
