stuff we've been doing...

...butchering chickens,

...supervising the "comedor" and planning the menu every other day,

...making a wigwam and a teepee,

...attending an Eastern Mennonite Mission retreat in Guatemala,

I'm sure you'll be able to tell in at least one of the photos that the retreat was much needed...:)

...exploring some Mayan ruins in Copan (an Indian group that Angelica and Ali studied in school),

...being padrinos at Karla Patricia's "high school" graduation,

...and attending Karla Patricia's graduation dinner here at the Finca.

Some of the girls...

-------------------------------------Kimberly, Heidy, Me, Maribel, Yaquelin
Here you'll see some of the girls who are sweet and cooperative most of the time, some who at one time or another haven't talked to me for awhile (as long as 5 months or so), some who have the worst attitudes and are difficult to work with, some who are hard workers and feel better when they have something to do, etc. You probably won't be able to tell which is which (and I won't tell you :), but God loves all of them and you can pick one or more to pray for regularly!
