|Missioners with Dilcia and Javier|
|Building picnic tables|
Today the group has already finished the three picnic tables for the school, transported most of the wood to two of the house sites, taught five sessions of English, built the frame for one of the houses, repaired some of the wiring at the school, attended our first group liturgy, and attended the school’s Father’s Day ceremony. In between all of that, there was still time to play with the children.

|Teaching English lessons|
Much of our junta discussion centered around poverty and how Honduran poverty compares to what we see in the States. Though all agreed there is poverty in the States, now that we are witnessing Honduran poverty, we realize the difference. The missioners know that the luck of where a person is born truly has a bearing in his lot in life. All of us on this mission trip are so blessed.
|Sorting items in the library|
OOPS! We just had a lot of excitement here in the compound. One of the young Honduran students who lived here was unfortunate to have a birthday today. His “friends” decided to turn him into a birthday cake by carrying him outside and dumping eggs, flower, and water on him. We enjoyed the excitement and sang Happy Birthday to him.

Hopefully, everything will settle down here shortly so we missioners can get some rest!
