The fish last night was a hit. I lost track of the number of eyes eaten. The only excitement last night was a short power loss, and then the return of Fred and Ethel.....I named the roaches. Kim killed them for us, but Kirsten reminded us that they would have children and friends. I informed the girls I met the children at 5am!
Today was a hard work day of digging and pick axing. The ground was very dry and full of large rocks so it was challenging. The kid were out of school so we had a lot of help and onlookers. We decided the way Kirsten swung a pick ax today that she has to be part Honduran at least! WE discovered some angry ants and a taranchula while digging.
After lunch was special today because we got to distribute some items to the villagers. Our group brought brightly colored frisbees which were imprinted with From Your American Friends in Spanish. We lined all the children up and passed them out. They were a hit! The girls in the group also made up special purses filled with goodies to give to some of the girls who have followed us around all week and have done as much or more work than we have. Some goodbyes had to be said because we may not see some of them on
every one is feeling fine, but we have a few blisters on the team which are being treated with duck tape and spider man bandaids! I got some good pictures on the bus on the way home because a few missioners dared to fall asleep! And the Hondurans are speaking English, their favorite phrase is OH MY GOSH. It is so funny to hear and they love using it! The other phrase is WHATS UP MAN!
Once again everyone should be so proud of this team. Their work ethic is amazing, and the benefits we are receiving are truly amazing. Spanish is being spoken, but our favorite quote for the trip has come from Stephanie Rice. She told us one night.......It does not matter what language you speak, a smile is something everyone can understand. I will leave you with that. Tomorrow will be mass at 8am, then on to Sulaco to the malnutrition center. It will be a beautiful and heartbreaking day. Love to all of our family and friends. To my boys, I love you and will see your soon. Bob, please clean the house......and I love you too!
