We’ve been here a little over 2 weeks and so much has happened since then. Last week we had a great team from Tallahassee, Florida here. We are still staying with our gracious hosts Lloyd and Melanie Monroe but we are hoping to be in our own place by the end of the week! I thought I would just share lots of photos from our 2 weeks here so you can experience some of what we have gotten to experience.
Melanie and Lloyd are the Directors of our organization and we have invaded their home. They have been so good to us and our kids while we have been waiting to find our own place. They are a special couple and as you can see have kind of become surrogate grand parents to our kids, whether they like it or not.
The past two weeks I have gotten to lead the music for the Porch worship gathering. It has been fun getting to play and sing with Joe, Melanie, Lloyd, and Dave. I love the mix of people at the Porch on a regular basis.
Speaking of Joe. Joe is another long term missionary volunteer with Porch de Salomon. He and his wife Kristen have been down here serving for 2 years. Joe is amazing with the kids. They call him Payaso which is clown in Spanish. He is one of the most energetic and loving people I’ve ever met.
We handed out coloring books to all the kids in the community which were a big hit. Lots of smiling faces over a few crayons and a coloring book.
Amber got the chance to visit with a special family of 12 and experience some of the local Mayan culture. The Mayan people are super talented at making all sorts of crafts. Juana wanted to get a picture by her stove in her home that Porch de Salomon built. Hey look Amber is actually tall here:)! Hope you enjoyed getting a taste of some of our life down here so far.
