Filling in the Gaps 2 – Back in Pinalejo

We have been blessed with far more time for closure in Pinalejo than we expected. Our kids had so many hopes and expectations about our return from the US, and many of them have happened!

We celebrated Alex’s 15th birthday in much the same way we’d always celebrated birthdays on camp. It was a spur of the moment dinner and some who weren’t invited, but would have been had we had time to plan it, just “happened” to stop by!

But this time we added the fun of teaching our friends to play games on our wii!

In May, Ellie came home from college for a two-month visit. She joined us for an activity in the local school and most of our summer adventures.

At this point we wondered if we’d be moving in a few weeks, a month or a little more, but our goal was to discern God’s plan and get started as soon as possible. We hoped Ellie would at least meet the people we’d be working with in the future.

During her first weekend back, we were able to participate in the  local high school’s “farm fair” centered on what Honduras produces. Last year we were asked to be judges. This year we successfully avoided that pressure! Too many kids we love were involved!

Little did we know how MANY summer adventures we would have!
