It's been a long day for all of us. After a breakfast of french toast, we got off to an early start for Valle de Angeles. Think Old Market in Omaha and you kind of get the idea of what the shopping area looked like. You could even get a horse and buggy ride, BUT we did not. The views along the way were awesome, as usual. Sr. Juanita was especially blessed today because she spotted her favorite Honduran bird 5 times as we drove.
I guarantee that many of you back home will be receiving nice souvenirs. Every shopper I heard was shopping for family and friends before looking for their own souvenir. We took a pizza break at noon; most then enjoyed an ice cream cone. That left an hour for shopping before we returned to Esquias.
We ate hamburgers, chips, and watermelon for supper and prepared for Mass. Janet had prepared a booklet for each of us with the readings so we could follow them during the service. None of our gentlemen got their feet washed tonight, so we watched a typical Honduran service - LOTS of enthusiastic responses and singing. During the sign of peace everyone goes everywhere to hug and give the sign of peace. During junta we commented on how the Hondurans all participate joyfully.
We weren't able to have junta until 9 due to the length of the church service and needing to allow journaling time. Thus, this blog is late and most of you will be reading it on Friday morning.
Lesley, Phil suggests you mow the lawn before he gets back. He would be forever beholden to you.
