Happy Birthday, Ali!

Happy Birthday, Ali!!! She turned 11 on March 13.

And happy 42nd birthday, Alonso!

While we were in PA in January, Angelica decided to make public her decision to follow Christ and joined the Faith Exploration class at Metzlers along with 17 others. Although we returned to Honduras before the classes were finished, Harlan and Angelica continued to study the lessons every week. In February we were invited by our church to return in March so that Angelica could be baptized along with the rest of the class on Sunday, March 21st. We thank God for Angelica and each one that has decided to become disciples of Christ and pray that God's Spirit will flow in and through each one.

We were glad to be able to celebrate Angelica's baptism and Ali's birthday with family and friends!

"Comedor Project"

Here are some updated views of the dining hall/kitchen/pantry construction project.

Looks a little different, doesn't it!?

Concrete counter tops where the kids will eat. This job was done primarily by our New Jersey group.

Getting ready to set wood columns for roof support (and good looks).

Heave ho! These hefty columns were cut from dead pine trees on La Finca property

Don't let 'er drop!

Alex takes a turn at sanding. Many of the kids have been doing a great job of helping with the project.

Will the project be finished by April 24th, anniversary date of La Finca? We hope!
