Whew. He had me worried for awhile. Maybe it was just being sequestered in the itty hotel room with him all day, but you never want to see your kids ill. Especially in a foreign country. Thank you, thank you for praying. After much pedialyte, sleep, Honduran chicken broth and rice, and prayer, Peter is almost back to normal. We praise God and will keep his pace slower this week.
Work is steady in the village. Poured concrete roof crossbeams yesterday and continued on foundation for parsonage. Today we had about 80 children show up to VBS. Some are so poor they have no shoes and very little food. But today they were loved, they smiled, and they heard how much Jesus loves them.
Thoughts in brief:
-Honduran chicken stew is delicious and verrrrry calliente. They put all sorts of veggies in it including yucca, and plantains! Seemed very odd to see bananas floating in soup, but they actually tasted like squash. Really good!
-I have never drank so much water in my life. The days revolve around it.
-The Hermanos (Honduran ¨brothers¨) work so hard. They do bone aching work all day long.
-Pops is amazing. His stamina, attitude, and hard work make me proud.
-Honduran stairs are very variable. They range in height of 1.5 inches to about 7 inches and will change within a single staircase. This is cause for much toe stubbing and occasional tripping that leads to large bruises on shins.
-So grateful for my friends and family that are supporting us in prayer and excitement.
