We are well protected on this campus and life changes as we go through the big gates onto the world "outside".
In spite of being the dry season waiting for the rains to start soon to refresh the land, we drove through interesting aspects of the area. Like through the parts of Tegucigalpa (of over a million people) where the city sprawls up onto the hills around.

There is nothing like viewing a papaya grove as we see at the Agricultural School.
It was amazing to be part of such a giving team and we enjoyed our evenings of sharing and devotions and preparing the next days crafts.
We had a number of handmade dolls lovingly made by a group of ladies in Burlington that we left with Erika who would make sure that they would be distributed - perhaps as companions for homesick girls or as a reward for hard work or with the teachers. This would be left up to the staff as to how they would be used. We also left the 'finger puppets' made by another group of ladies. The kids loved them and we used them in our 'one-on-one' times with the children, but also left them with Erika to give to the teachers to use as teaching aids or any way that would work for them.
The boys at the agricultural school share some game time with their fellow students in a game of "Connect 4".
The memories of each day embedded in our hearts and prayers for ever.
