Last evening in Belize

Slotegraaf 2016 HANDS Team:

Day 6- Last day of work. Used up the last of the Portland cement.  Ran what was remaining of wire.  Painted the fence posts around the basketball court.  Tidied up the rooftop so that it was left cleaner than when we arrived.  The classrooms now just need the light fixtures and fans to be completed.  Hopefully the government will provide some grant money to help with the purchase of the fixtures, so that the classrooms will be in full use when we come back next year.  

Day 7- Our day off to relax and marvel at God's handiwork in the countryside west of Belize City.  We were accompanied by Pastor Betson, Manuel, Robert (not Leegstra), and Brian and Carrie (a couple from West Virginia we met during Sunday worship at St. Andrew's).  It was raining lightly, but the temperature was great.  We went to Jaguar Paw to go ziplining through the canopy of the forests, and then spent the afternoon floating lazily down the river, as it snaked its way through limestone rocks and cave systems. Being in full darkness for up to fifteen minutes with only our headlamps to guide us, the cameras could not capture the splendour of the caves, so the only pictures we have are shots from the river in daylight.  

Day 8- Travel Day.  Take-off scheduled for 1:20 Belize time.  Hope to be back at home base by midnight tomorrow.

Looks like you accomplished much also. Your day to see Belize looks beautiful. Trusting God brought you home safely.

Relax on Saturday and brrr wasn't it cold when you got to Toronto? God bless you
