hot, hot, hot

It is getting very hot here in the fine country of Honduras. We have been waiting and waiting for it to happen and yes the time has come. The time to sweat and yearn for the cold waters. I don't mind it not yet anyway.
I am in a stalemate as far as Sunday school goes, we do it out side in the incomplete Sunday school building and it can be a daunting task to plan a lesson with a craft. If you have any ideas let me know or if you know of any websites I can find good Sunday school games for small groups please send it to me. Please also pray for ideas designed to make the best of the situation.

Goodbye my faithful friend.


I have a bit of sad news.... my faithful companion and vigilant friend Muñeca died this morning. I guess it is not just a bit... I am pretty upset. It will be very hard for me to romp with out her by my side. Traipsing through the jungle will not be the same without her chasing squirrels sniffing around and rolling in stinky things. Walking felt so lonely today, I didn't want to look back because I knew that she wouldn't be there . She always seemed to understand all my words and even my thoughts at times. Every thing felt so much better with her near. I never had a dog that was so awesome, she was the opitamy of loyal dogginess. I even debated taking her back to the states with me when I go back. But alas I can not I can only cry and smile in sweet memory of one of the best friends I ever had.

it has been too long my friends.

I realized that I have not updated in awhile. So now is the best time.
The weekend of Feb 20-23 a group of us lady teachers went to Copan where there are Mayan ruins. It was a great get away and a huge blessing.
Our dog here Muneca had puppies that same weekend (you can see many a-photo on the Rivers blog) the puppies are so cute they are tiny whimpering fat balls of adorableness.
In the next few weeks we will be having many visitors, which is going to be fun and I know a beautiful time of fellowship. Pray that God will guide all that happens during this time.
Pray also for peace, we have had some rough edges being scraped away recently so prayers in that area are coveted.
My heart goes out to family and friends of Trinnie I am praying for you all since I can't be there in person. My heart hurts for the huge loss we have come upon in the wake of Trinnie's promotion.
Life here has gotten way to busy. i guess that is what happens when more people are involved.
We had our first service in the New Building this Sunday morning! It still has dirt ground and the roof has some gaps and there are many unfinished places, but we did it! We has service there. Things are happening.
Please pray that in every area of my life the I would choose to worship and glorify the Lord. Pray that I would focus on the positive and not get sucked into the negative. thanks!
