Another Day Done and Here Comes the Weekend

Welland HANDS Team:

Last night it poured, but euchre and dice were played with lots of laughter.

The rain had stopped but we weren't sure if the kids would be in school or not. It's a cloudy day-being 68 degrees at 0800 hrs. We headed out with 2 guitars and ready to present our Samson bible story. We sang to the kids. Then we role played the bible story....it was good..the kids enjoyed it.

Back to work we went as the students finished their half day of school.

We were pleasantly surprised as Wilma Vahrmeyer and her sister Liz came for coffee. So good to see them.

Today we have a grand total of 238 tiles laid. The process is slow....precision  necessary. Principal Christian stayed a little longer so we could finish up.

Deciding what to do with the rest of the day--relax, explore Corozal Town, play more games,etc.

Oh,Oh.....it's raining..

So we had supper and our spiritual leaders presented the team with gifts....Wait?? gifts from our families?......amazing...we were surprised excited and thankful...

Even from our church family..Many, many  thanks..

until tomorrow night.

Greetings Welland Hands Team!

So good to see you all having a great time and making new relationships! Thanks for the blog updates and the pics. Enjoy every minute of being there... sun, heat, rain, sweat, chickens, noises, speed bumps, food, tiles, more tiles, and most of all the beautiful people of Belize. Pass along special greetings from me to standard 3 and Mr. Walter. Also greetings to Aaron and Lucie at the best hotel in Belize...Hok' Ol Kin. May God continue to grant health and strength for the trip and may you form relationships and memories that last a lifetime.
