Thursday morning

Slotegraaf HANDS Team:

Yesterday Paster Betson brought us to the island of San Pedro for a day of fun and relaxation.  We enjoyed a relaxing day on the Caribbean Sea snorkeling and swimming.  We also did some sight-seeing on the island.  

Those awake early enough this morning were treated to perhaps the best sunrise we had all week. After breakfast, we went to the school for their chapel and to say see you next year.  We participated in some singing with the students, then listened to the Pastor's message of encouragement to the students.  Interestingly, he spoke about "seeking first the kingdom of God"  which was also part of the devotions we did as a group last night.  Talk about seeing 8 grown men squirm and feel a lump in their throats after hearing the words of the teachers and students.

We said good-bye to Emmanuel and Omer, then went for a quick tour of Old Belize, which was a historic tourist village.  We are now back at the Pastor's home making final preparations for our flight back home.  

See everybody back home tonight!
